Dear Mr. Brown:
Upon learning of your posting for a Scheduling Coordinator, I hastened to submit my resume for your review. As an organized and detail-oriented professional with more than eight years of experience managing client and caregiver scheduling for Hope Springs Hospice Care—coupled with exceptional interpersonal and organizational abilities—I am more than prepared to contribute to your organization’s goals and objectives.
My background includes organizing staff scheduling, taking client calls, managing timesheets, making appointments, assigning casework, and handling travel arrangements when necessary to facilitate optimal efficiency and productivity within the healthcare sector. Additionally, my complementary administrative talents spanning records management, report generation, and correspondence are certain to render me an asset to your team. Throughout my career, I have earned a reputation for excellence in prioritizing tasks, collaborating with peers and managers, and adhering to established communication and organizational procedures.
Highlights of my experience include…
Administering the schedule of 150+ clients and 150+ caregivers at Hope Springs Hospice Care, creating, refining, and continually updating a schedule with more than 4,500 visit hours per week; facilitating and executing the addition of more than 900 hours to the schedule in just six months.
Liaising between patients and caregivers, matching customer preferences with caregiver attributes, and planning daily appointments and visits accordingly.
Communicating consistently with both clients and caregivers regarding schedule changes, cancellations, or additions.
Writing detailed notes of caregiver interaction and family communication for confidential patient files.
Developing a new tracking system to monitor shift offers and shift refusals, resulting in a more accurate picture of each caregiver’s level of participation and reliability.
Demonstrating solid time management and organizational skills, Microsoft Office proficiency, and effective customer service abilities.
My skills in scheduling coordination and general administration have been finely honed, and I am confident my additional strengths will readily translate to your environment. The chance to offer more insight into my qualifications would be appreciated.
Thank you for your consideration, and I look forward to speaking with you soon.
