Parallon’s Bedford Specialty Center Named a Best Company to Work For in Texas

Bedford, Texas, March 30, 2016 – The Bedford Specialty Center, one of Parallon’s Revenue Cycle specialty operations that performs patient balance followup and insurance collections for hundreds of hospitals, has been named a Best Company to Work For in Texas for the seventh time.

“Everyone at the Center should be very proud of this honor,” said Shannon Dauchot, CEO, Parallon Revenue Cycle Point Solutions. “It is a reflection of the great accomplishments of our employee team at the Bedford Specialty Center, and everything they do to work together on behalf of our clients and their patients. We are proud to work for a healthcare company that values our highly-engaged employees and strives to give them a work environment that allows them to positively impact the patient experience.” The award from the Best Companies Group was based in part on the many employee-oriented programs at the Bedford Specialty Center, including:

  • Employee Appreciation Week – A week-long celebration for all hourly staff, which includes games, prizes, catered food, and team-building activities on site.
  • Monthly recognition for performance – Team meetings and center-wide all-staff meetings to celebrate top performers, such as Top Collector, Perfect Attendance. Top performers and “total package” awards are given to individuals and teams.
  • Healthy snacks - In keeping with an initiative by parent company HCA, fresh fruit is offered as a snack to all employees.
  • Succession planning/career pathing – The company strives to promote from the current employee base. Programs include a six-month Position Development Program for supervisors and up, and Passport to Development for non-exempt employees, in which they learn additional office skillsets to help them achieve professional growth. Lunch and Learn “Spotlights” are held so employees can learn about other units at the center.

A group of managers and representatives of the center’s Engagement Task Force accepted the award at a ceremony in Austin, Texas, on March 29.
