The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium (SEARHC) is pleased to announce the promotion of Joyce Moore to clinic services administrator at the Alicia Roberts Medical Center in Klawock.
Moore previously served as deputy clinic services administrator. She recently received her Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration from Ashworth College (a distance delivery program based in Norcross, Ga.), and she plans to continue on to the master's program.
“Joyce has worked her way from an entry level position at ARMC to one of the key administrative positions in the organization,” said Dr. David Vastola, SEARHC Community Health Care Services Medical Director. “Her current responsibilities include oversight of all SEARHC facilities on Prince of Wales. In addition to her strong skills and work ethic, Joyce's local knowledge of the island will be invaluable in her new position. She is a strong patient advocate and is respected by her staff. We are all extremely proud of her.”
A lifelong resident of Prince of Wales Island, Moore grew up in Klawock and is a graduate of Klawock High School (she also is a former basketball coach for the school). She is L’eeneidi of the Raven moiety. Moore has worked for SEARHC more than 14 years, starting in 1996 and leaving for a year in May 2010. She started at the front desk and, with many years of continued education, moved up the ladder. She has been a health information coder, health unit coordinator, office manager and was deputy clinic administrator before and after her year away from the clinic.
“I am excited to be back home and in my new position,” Moore said. “I missed working with my co-workers at the Alicia Roberts Medical Center. The staff here is an extraordinary group. I am glad to be a part of such a strong working team.”
