Local Business Partnerships

Knowing what to expect from the world of work is important to EHOVE Career Center graduates as they are looking forward to their future career.  Thanks to local community businesses, like Dermatology Partners Inc. in Sandusky and Avon, graduates have come out on top with successful employment. 

"We are very fortunate and privileged to have a wonderful health care community supportive of our EHOVE programs, practicum experiences; but most of all employment opportunities for our graduating Medical Assisting students,” said EHOVE’s Medical Assistant Director and Coordinator Tonya Lloyd.  “Dermatology Partners Inc. continues to provide exceptional practicum experiences for our students and employment opportunities.  We are proud to continue to deliver a winning combination for both students and employer. "

EHOVE Medical Assistant graduate Kris Wick (Sandusky) graduated in 2010 and has been employed by Dermatology Partners Inc. for five years.  “My EHOVE experience was more than what I ever expected,” said Wick. “Tonya Lloyd along with Ms. Terry Hopkins gave us experiences and useful tips and information preparing us for the field. The skills I learned at EHOVE most definitely applied to what I do in dermatology. But my experience came from working in dermatology. I would just like to say thank you to Dermatology Partners Inc for giving me an opportunity to grow with your company and landing a great career.”

Roxy Legay (Vermilion) and Veronica Ziegelhofer (Huron) have been employed with Dermatology Partners Inc. since 2009 after graduating from EHOVE’s Medical Assistant program.  “I really enjoy the job,” said Ziegelhofer.”  "I had a good experience with EHOVE, said Legay. "I liked the program and the content. It taught me a lot about one-on-one care with patients. I felt my instructors were knowledgeable about the information. I am very pleased with EHOVE. My experience at Dermatology Partners Inc. has been great, and I have learned so much about the field that I never would have expected."

Dermatology Partners Inc. has been providing dermatology care for the community for over 15 years. They are the largest private dermatology practice in Northern Ohio with three office locations designed to meet the needs of their patients.  Dermatology Partners Inc. has board certified dermatologist that specialize in general, pediatric, cosmetic and surgical dermatology including Mohs micrographic surgery. 

"At Dermatology Partners Inc. we only hire and retain individuals that we think are both excellent employees and well-rounded people,” said Dr. Paul M. Bedocs, DO. “The many employees we have hired from EHOVE have possessed the qualities we look for in hiring excellent employees. In my experience, EHOVE graduates demonstrate the level of professionalism, work ethic, critical thinking and compassionate care that we require employees to bring to our work place daily.”

"The growing success of our practice is based on creating an office culture and delivery of care that is patient centered,” said Bedocs.  “All parts of the patient experience are important to us. It starts with the patient's first phone call where they speak to one of our trained staff, not an automated phone system, and continues on to a timely office visit with one of our dermatologist. The medical assistants and LPN's we hire from EHOVE are critical in the delivery of this high quality of care, we value them very much."
