ATLANTA — (Jan. 20, 2011) — Medtech today announced the formation of a new 10-school company that is positioned to become a leading post-secondary healthcare career education provider. The schools include four current Midwestern campuses, along with three Sanz Schools in the Washington, D.C., area and three Javelin Technical Training Centers in greater Atlanta that will adopt the Medtech name.
The schools were brought together under single ownership less than a year ago. Medtech President and CEO John L. Hopkins’ mission was to create a powerful, extraordinary education company that will provide a distinctive education experience. To achieve that goal, Medtech is establishing new learning and service standards within the industry while preserving each school’s legacy and healthcare career training strengths.
"We’ve created a totally new company, from our corporate culture and philosophy to the way in which we operate, so we can deliver an extraordinary learning environment, along with personal and memorable services for our students, employers and clinical partners," said Hopkins. "We selected the Medtech name because it speaks directly to our campuses’ healthcare expertise and is indicative of technological investments we are making within the schools to provide the most advanced resources and services to facilitate an extraordinary experience for our students."
He added that Medtech is dedicated to creating new futures through a set of core values that enable it to “be extraordinary” and, in the process, prepare students for rewarding careers in the in-demand healthcare industry. Several campuses also will offer accredited nursing training.
The company sets itself apart from industry competitors on the basis of providing an exceptional student experience. Medtech’s educational method is distinguished by a unique employee culture that instructors and staff played a significant role in shaping; a focus on operational pre-eminence through reinvestment in campuses and the technology and tools to create environments in which students can become extraordinary; and a commitment to maintaining the highest levels of regulatory excellence.
“We are characterized by our people, culture and operational excellence – an authentic distinction that will allow us to redefine the education environment,” Hopkins said. “Medtech is moving forward in its quest to create student experiences that are beyond the predictable through our commitment to be extraordinary in everything we do.”
Medtech’s name speaks directly to each campus’ primary focus: preparing career professionals for medical-related fields in strong learning environments that are technologically oriented. It also communicates that Medtech campuses provide personalized hands-on, practical learning experiences so students are prepared to achieve all that is possible while creating new futures for themselves in healthcare.
While its main focus is on healthcare education, Medtech also recognizes the general need for English language training in many of the communities it serves. With growing numbers of students seeking English as a Second Language (ESL) programs to bolster their career aptitude, Medtech offers English as a supplemental program to its core medical training program for students wishing to enhance their language skills.
Students are encouraged to search out new opportunities, develop inquisitive minds, and gain the skills and professional confidence that enable them to reach their full potential. A Medtech education prepares students to establish professional goals and create new futures in existing and emerging healthcare professions.
“We offer a strong learning platform that enables graduates to realize they have extraordinary potential…and the tools to achieve it,” Hopkins noted.
Medtech is a nationally accredited, leading post-secondary network of colleges and institutes with the goal of advancing healthcare career education. Medtech prepares students for in-demand healthcare careers at 10 campuses in the District of Columbia, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland and Virginia. Program offerings vary by campus; certain Medtech campuses offer accredited nursing education. Visit www.Medtech.edu to learn more about Medtech education opportunities.
