Title: Marketing & Foundation Coordinator
Parkland Health Center (PHC), a member of BJC HealthCare, consists of two facilities, including a Critical Access facility, located in Bonne Terre, and an acute care facility, located in Farmington. Each facility offers its unique set of services.
What makes your company stand out within your industry?
Parkland Health Center is a member of BJC HealthCare, one of the largest and most respected healthcare systems in the country. We offer leading edge technology, and highly-trained, well-respected physicians. It is our goal to provide the highest quality health care to our patients every day.
What is one thing most people don’t realize about your company?
Most people don’t realize that because of our relationship with BJC HealthCare, many of our physicians, like the Oncologists at Parkland Cancer Center, are the same physicians you would see if you went to a larger BJC hospital, like Missouri Baptist Medical Center. Top quality physicians from Missouri Baptist Medical Center and Barnes-Jewish Hospital see patients at Parkland Health Center every day.
What are you most proud of within the last year?
We are so pleased that we are able to offer to the community, and a 250-mile radius the St. Louis Children’s Hospital Emergency Transport Team. They are stationed at Parkland Health Center 24/7/365. They transfer the most critical pediatric patients from hospitals in southern Missouri and Illinois, and even as far away as Kentucky and Arkansas. Hundreds of critically ill or injured children’s lives have been saved with this service.
What’s on the radar for the rest of 2014?
Some new physicians will be joining our team during 2014. We will also be announcing some technology additions that will offer a direct benefit to our patients.
If you could tell Farmington Regional Chamber members one thing, what would it be?
Parkland Health Center exists to serve the community, through quality compassionate health care and community support.
