PHC is committed to excellent patient care and service. We strive to develop cohesive teams where all levels of employees can work together. That being said, we have developed the job descriptions to define the primary tasks and responsibilities. However, it does not preclude all staff to support the functions of the entire clinic. Some PSA and FSAs may be asked to do work that is outside their daily assignments, especially when working in smaller locations or when trying to address staff vacancies. This team approach will support our goal of keeping the Patient as our focus.
