Medical Assistants are trained professionals that handle both administrative tasks and patient care tasks under the direction of a physician. They perform duties such as gathering and recording patient and insurance information, preparing exam rooms, and providing direct patient care such as drawing blood, administering medications, and measuring vital signs.
Even as they work on end-of-the-year class projects, students from the Health Careers Clubs at all three of our locations have generously organized events to collect donations to benefit members of their communities.
South Hills held a ribbon cutting ceremony at the Lewistown location for the new Medical Assistant program on March 24. Lewistown Mayor Deborah Bargo, District Attorney Dave Molek, and other members of the local business community and Chamber of Commerce were in attendance as South Hills President Maralyn Mazza unveiled the new lab.
