Patient Coordinator

Our business is both high-touch and high-tech!
We're high-touch because we deliver an exceptional level of patient care and satisfaction that is unmatched in our industry. And, we've got the awards to prove it--winning Avatar's Exceeding Patient Expectations Award seven years in a row! Our fixed imaging sites are augmented by a large fleet of mobile coaches that allow us to pull up, park, and provide patient access to diagnostic imaging services and modalities from any hospital's parking lot or satellite location. We're high-tech because we use advanced medical imaging technologies and techniques to visualize internal tissues and structures of the body--helping physicians to diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases and injuries. But our expertise doesn't stop there. Because we're a market-leading radiology services provider, we're also the radiology pros hospitals and health systems partner with to build, manage, optimize, and grow their radiology service lines and outpatient centers. So, if you're passionate about contributing to excellence in patient care, driven to provide superior customer service, enthusiastic about improving access to high-quality healthcare, and just downright excited about working with such a terrific group of lively professionals, then you're definitely in the right place!
If you like being the glue that holds everything together, then this is just the position for you.

Our patient coordinators make a huge impact because they are often the first friendly face and the last caring interaction that patients have at one of our imaging centers. Highly organized and self-motivated, they ensure that patients are informed and at ease, staff is prepared, and operations are running smoothly. They are the heart of our operations and integral to every aspect of our imaging center--from greeting, screening and transporting patients to the scanner, completing any necessary paperwork, and preparing/organizing the films, patient chart, and results for transmission to the ordering physician; to entering information into medical information systems, ordering supplies and cleaning the unit. And, because their work environments may vary--from a freestanding outpatient center to a hospital-based/inpatient facility, or a mobile coach--our patient coordinators are comfortable in a variety of healthcare settings.
