The South Bend Campus recently presented the South Bend Clinic with the Distinguished Community Employer award. The clinic employs a staff of 610 with more than 90 physicians at its five campuses in South Bend, Granger, Portage, Ironwood, and New Carlisle, and at its two locations in Elkhart and Berrien Springs, Michigan. These combined facilities serve nearly 300,000 patients a year.
It was fitting that Dee Johnson, senior human resources director, received the employer plaque for the clinic as she has served on the campus’s medical assisting advisory board and was responsible for the hiring of the first graduate with a double major in medical assisting and pharmacy technology. “The level of academic preparation from American National University is exceptionally good,” said Ms. Johnson. “How important it is to not just educate our students in their field of study, but also prepare them for the real world. You can teach the technical skills, but it is very difficult to teach the soft skills. National students must come with the professional personality to work with patients, staff, and physicians to provide a high standard of quality care in their fast paced specialty practices.”
