Are you looking for a career in health care administration? You’re looking in the right place.
What will you do?
The Patient Care Assistant plays a key role in supporting patients throughout all stages of their healthcare journey. As a Patient Care Assistant, you will triage important information to the Care Coordinator, and offer “real-time” solutions to patients, where appropriate. The Patient Care Assistant frequently interacts with various stakeholders by telephone and other communication methods, whether answering incoming questions or providing health care system navigation.
The Patient Care Assistant provides timely follow up on patient issues, and is responsible for ensuring accurate documentation in our patient databases. To support the Care Coordinator, the Patient Care Assistant also helps with managing a variety of tasks relevant to the Care Coordinator’s specific caseload.
Currently operating in a hybrid “work-from-home” model (i.e., some work to be completed from a HCCSS South West office location and some work may be completed from a home office), you will have the opportunity to impact lives in your community, enjoy a balanced lifestyle, and be part of a great team that makes care happen.

Certificate or Diploma in health care administration is an asset.
One (1) year of related experience in health care/medical administration or services preferred.
