Job Description

Providence Health

Founded as Providence Hospitals in 1938 by the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, Providence's two free standing full-service hospitals and numerous satellite practices maintain a true devotion to advanced clinical expertise and unmatched compassion. On February 2, 2016, Providence became part of the LifePoint Health network, and shortly thereafter, changed its name to Providence Health to better represent the full complement of its services. Driven by quality, compassion, and Christ, Providence treats the whole person- body, mind, and spirit.

Essential Functions

The Patient Access Specialist interviews patients and/or patient family members to obtain the necessary demographic, guarantor and insurance information.

Attention to detail, promptly returning phone calls, and alerting a member of the Patient Access Services Leadership Team to high risk situations are extremely critical.


The Patient Access Specialist maintains a courteous and professional demeanor, always identifies him/herself by name and department, and greets customers with a friendly reception while displaying concern, compassion and respect.
