Vega Named Employee of the Fourth Quarter for 2020
Lindsey Vega has been selected as Hattiesburg Clinic’s Employee of the Quarter for the fourth quarter of 2020.
Vega was awarded the honor from a pool of over 100 candidates across various departments. She has been with Hattiesburg Clinic since 2017. Vega started in financial services and was promoted to project support coordinator earlier this year.
During the summer, business operations needed additional assistance in its department. Vega, while still managing her responsibilities in financial services, attended appropriate PAR training courses, so she could help provide services for patients who were seeing providers in departments like Heart & Vascular and Urology.
Her coworkers would describe her as hard working, detail-oriented and productive. She provides excellent customer service and follow-through. Barbara Rhynehardt, revenue cycle management director, said, “Over the course of the past six months, Lindsey has worked fulltime as a PAR in several surgical clinics, while maintaining her responsibilities as the financial services project support coordinator. Her assistance in the Urology Department and Heart & Vascular as a PAR was critical as they are responsible for handling clinic patients as well as surgical patients. Her assistance was instrumental in getting the PAR managers through this very difficult time.”
The Employee of the Quarter is selected from nominations by an employee’s peers, managers, and patients and then chosen by a committee of people from all levels of the clinic.
As Employee of the Quarter, Vega receives a $100 bonus, a reserved parking spot for one quarter, and one vacation day.
