Trudy Olander, clinical supervisor for Eye Associates, recently began a working relationship with Southwest Florida College.
Eye Associates has been in Fort Myers for over 25 years and provides expert adult and senior eye care specializing in cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic eye care. They currently have 27 employees and doctors between their Fort Myers and Naples locations.
When Olander had a position available in the billing department, she contacted SWFC. “I wanted to work with SWFC because we were looking for someone that had completed a medical billing and coding course with the most recent updated information,” she said.
After contacting Career Services, Olander was provided with six candidates that met all her needs, from which she hired a supervisor for Eye Associates.
“It is early in our working relationship with SWFC,” Olander said, “however, I can tell by the caliber of the candidates that were at the interviews, they were confident, skilled, poised with obvious education. SWFC will be my first place to look for any future
