Ten complete first DeTar Academy Development Training Program

Ten DeTar Healthcare System employees were the first to complete the 12-week DeTar Academy Development Training Program and were recognized in a recent graduation ceremony. The graduates are, from left: Christal Landry, Krysti Rangel, Belinda Dominguez, Mary Hernandez, Jill Kennedy, Cynthia Martinez, Felicia Neisser, Susan Martinez, Tanja Green, and Jo Beth Burns. The employees were trained through a partnership with Victoria College to provide job training with a $90,440 Skills Development Fund grant from the Texas Workforce Commission. The grant was used to custom train 60 new and current nonclinical workers for healthcare office and computer skills related to registration and admitting, technical training, medical billing and insurance coding. Those trained include admissions and clerical personnel, phlebotomists and insurance follow-up representatives. Cynthia Martinez, who works as a phlebotomist in the DeTar Healthcare System, said she enjoyed the medical terminology training. “An outpatient comes in with all these diagnoses, but we might not know what the diagnoses mean,” Martinez said. “The medical terminology training helped me to better understand that. The training was wonderful. I would rate it a 10.” Four more DeTar employees are currently taking training in the program.
