Two years ago, Rob Mooney was promoted to Jordan Valley Community Health Center’s director of information technology. One month later, he was asked to take on another task: merging his department with that of business intelligence.
“By providing training and direction to this merged department, I was able to multiply the skills and knowledge that I have acquired to provide quality customer service and support all aspects of technology,” he says.
It’s not the first big undertaking he’s accomplished. He also combined three medical and dental electronic records into one system. Mooney has since been the company go-to for system help.
What was your first job? Mowing lawns alongside my brothers. We learned the importance of working hard for the things we wanted.
What are you doing to make the Ozarks better? We make our community better by showing kindness and compassion toward those we encounter on a daily basis. I try to live each day by that belief.
What was your professional aha moment? My degree was in biological engineering, but I started a temporary job in IT. I turned down an opportunity to start a career related to my degree. That was when I realized I wanted to continue in IT.
What about your job would shock clients? I have been a part of so many things that aren’t part of my job description like plunging toilets, moving desks and shoveling ice and snow.
