Overview

The Centralized Service Representative acts as liason between patients and the professional staff by scheduling appropriate appointments, sending and updating tasks related to patient care, and other duties.  This position does not directly manage any other caregivers and is not patient-facing.

 

In Central Oregon you will find some of the finest places for paddling, hiking, cycling, golfing and dining al fresco in the warmer months. In winter, areas of the High Desert turn into a snowy playground with skiing, snowboarding, sledding and ice skating.  Whatever the season, Central Oregon is home to some of the country's top craft breweries, unique boutiques for tax-free shopping, and world-class restaurants to please every lifestyle and budget.

 

St. Charles Health System is the largest employer in Central Oregon with more than 3,600 caregivers/employees at four hospitals and multiple outpatient clinics. We offer a wide variety of exciting clinical and non-clinical career paths for talented individuals.  We are seeking individuals with a passion for delivering exceptional care and service and who are looking for an opportunity to work with a dynamic and talented team of caregivers.
