We would like to congratulate Director of Travel Sylvia Weg-Swezy on becoming a HealthTrust Hero! Sylvia’s selfless actions to help the Finance team in an urgent and timely manner earned her a spot among our workforce elite.
Sylvia joined HealthTrust Workforce Solutions six years ago as the Director of Recruitment for Perm Placement for our East Florida Staffing Division. A year later, she joined the Travel team as one of their two directors. In her current role, she is responsible for managing a team of 50 Travel Recruiters and Associate Recruiters in the Sunrise, Dallas, Nashville and Denver offices alongside Director of Travel Recruitment Joi Crockett.
In the summer of 2018, Sylvia was asked to help the Finance team as Interim Leader and she dove right in without hesitation. Sylvia spent three months with the team, where she learned the ins-and-outs of billing and processes on the vendor side, and she helped streamline processes to better accommodate both the vendors and the Billing department. In this role, she had the opportunity to work closely with VP of Shared Services Wendy Ann Wedeking and CFO Jennifer Chemtov.
“Jennifer and Wendy took me under their wing and embraced me from day one,” says Sylvia. “This project brought me back to my roots considering I was originally a vendor before joining HWS.”
Sylvia took the time to dig deep and to not only get to know the team, but hear them out when it came to processes and procedures. She also built relationships with members of each of the teams that make up the Finance department such as Billing, Shared Services, Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable. By doing this, Sylvia was able to help guide each team as they smoothly transitioned into new and improved developments for their daily tasks.
“It was such a privilege to work with the Finance team,” says Sylvia. “What they really needed was someone who wanted to listen to them and be there for them and I was more than happy to do so.”
“What I love about HWS us that it promotes within and encourages growth,” Sylvia continues. “If I was tapped on the shoulder tomorrow and asked to do another project, I would take it in a heartbeat.”
Join us in congratulating Sylvia Weg-Swezy on becoming a HealthTrust Hero.
