Cardiovascular and invasive services specialty company Healthworks, Inc., has hired a number of new clinical specialists as it continues its expansion of providing clinical and educational resources to the healthcare industry. The addition of three new employees and opening of two new regional offices – one in western Pennsylvania and the other in southwestern Ohio –will now make it easier and more efficient for the company to meet the continued demand for expert personnel and professional development needs of hospitals across the mid-Atlantic region.

“We have set an ambitious growth course for the next five years and we expect Healthworks to lead the industry in staffing, consulting and educational resources in the cardiovascular field,” said Sandra Wolfe-Korejwo, the company’s founder and president. “Key to some of these initiatives is increasing our physical presence and operations across the state of Pennsylvania, and into Ohio. I am confident the addition of these highly-talented and experienced professionals will be instrumental helping us achieve a number of our goals.”

Rebecca J.Pryne, AAS, RT(R)(VI), joins the company as Ohio Division Manager to head the Ohio expansion, primarily focused in the south and western portions of the state, including the Dayton, Columbus and Cincinnati markets. Becky’s primary role will be identifying opportunities and establishing collaborative client relationships to provide qualified technical staff, clinical education and consulting services to healthcare provider organizations such as hospitals and group practices. As a practicing clinical specialist, Pryne will also work in a variety of invasive settings including cath and interventional radiology labs. Prior to joining Healthworks, Pryne was a clinical education specialist for Philips Medical Systems, and also worked for ten years as an interventional technologist at The Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. She earned her associate’s degree in radiologic technology from the University of Cincinnati.

The western Pennsylvania and Pittsburgh, PA market will be managed by Cathy Jo Thrower, AS, CVT, CCDS, who was most recently a medical device sales and training specialist for St. Jude Medical. Ms. Thrower’s extensive background in training nurses, physicians and technologists on cardiac device implants – as well as having been an electrophysiology (EP) clinical field engineer – will also help expand Healthworks resources in the fast-growing EP segment of cardiology. Prior to working for St. Jude Medical, Thrower was a registered cardiovascular invasive specialist at Lancaster General Hospital. She is currently pursuing her bachelor’s of science in health and human resources management at Geneva College.

Charlene Shellenberger, BS, RN, recently joined the education division as a clinical education specialist. Her primary responsibility will be to create, develop and deliver cardiovascular-specific education to the company’s growing list of hospital clients. Known for her particular expertise with cath lab technology and equipment, Shellenberger will be instrumental in expanding Healthworks library of content to meet continued demand of the marketplace. Ms. Shellenberger most recently served as the professional development nurse for the cath lab at Peninsula Regional.

Medical Center in Salsibury, MD, where she specialized in new employee orientation, staff education, and was a physician liaison. Prior to this, she held critical care nursing roles at a number of hospitals, including Beebe Medical Center in Lewes, DE, Wilcox Memorial Hospital in Lihue, Kauai, HI, and Hamot Medical Center in Erie, PA. She earned her associate’s degree in nursing from Pensacola Junior College in Florida, and her B.S. in biology from Lycoming College in Williamsport, PA.

According to Mimi Woods, BSN, RN, CCRN, cath lab manager at Community Health Systems’ Phoenixville (PA) Hospital, “The Healthworks’ staff is unbeatable. They are knowledgeable, professional, and oh-so-friendly and delightful to work with.” She adds, “I'm so glad we have such a professional firm such as Healthworks in the area. Each one of their team has made life bearable in our cath lab during our trying times.”

The expansion efforts of Healthworks are timely due to the critical technical personnel shortage being experienced by today’s healthcare facilities, and the rapid introduction of new technology in the cardiovascular sector. For example, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, there will be a labor shortage of 75,000 imaging technologists by the year 2010, based on the rapid increase of imaging technology procedures being performed in diagnostic and clinical settings.
