Jobs Landed: Craig Rush

I am currently managing a team of Information Technology professionals who provide high level customer service and support to the local health system on a 24x7 basis, including several physician offices. I have spent a great number of years in various positions, all in Michigan, as I cannot imagine living anywhere else. The opportunity to return to health care at the hospital (where I was born by the way) to manage an IT team and improve a growing health care system was an offer I could not refuse. It is a great feeling of both pride and accomplishment to know the service and system support I am implementing and managing make a huge difference for my friends and family in the community during their time of need for health care services. My wife is employed as a Registered Nurse (RN), so I tend to understand the frustrations of what happens in the world of patient care better than my counterparts in IT, especially with the growing use of technology in providing health care.  When not working, I volunteer in several areas of my church and enjoy spending time with my wife and two teenage sons. Professionally, I am currently taking courses to complete my Masters in Business Administration and looking to graduate in early 2012.  I am also pursuing further education in Project Management and have recently obtained my CompTIA Project+ certification. I was taught early by my parents and have become a strong believer in education and certification being the difference maker in being employed versus unemployed.  Professionals can never stop learning something new!
