ATLANTA, GA. - (Jan, 19, 2011) - All three Javelin Technical Training Center schools, top post-secondary healthcare education providers within the Atlanta area, have changed their name to Medtech Institute.
Today Medtech announced the development of a new Ten-school company positioned to be a leader in providing post-secondary healthcare career education. The schools that will adopt the Medtech name include the three Javelin Technical Training Center schools in greater Atlanta along with three Sanz Schools in the Washington, D.C., area, as well as four current Medtech campuses in Kentucky and Indiana.
The schools were consolidated under a single ownership within the past year. Medtech President and CEO John L. Hopkins’ mission was to develop a powerful, extraordinary training institution to offer a distinctive educational experience. To accomplish this goal, Medtech is implementing new service and learning specifications within the industry while conserving each school’s legacy and 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.”
As part of Medtech, the Morrow, Tucker and Marietta campuses will continue to incorporate the strict educational standards and core values upon which they were established. The affiliation also reiterates the schools’ primary focus: training students for extraordinary careers for the in-demand healthcare industry as their greatest priority.
“We prepare students for health-related careers by providing personalized hands-on training in labs equipped with sophisticated medical technology, so the name ‘Medtech’ literally explains what we do,” said Regional Vice President Director Bob Ernst. “The transition to Medtech demonstrates our commitment to providing students in the Atlanta metro area everything they need to live extraordinary lives and create extraordinary new futures for themselves and their families as in-demand healthcare professionals.”
Medtech is nationally accredited with several campuses also offering accredited RN and PN nursing training.
According to Ernst, although the name is completely new, the bond between the campuses and the students and communities they serve remains the same. And, just as Medtech proceeds to expand, the resources, know-how and training programs within the three campuses will also grow.
“We are still our respective communities’ campus, but now are bolstered by the creation of a strong, new team with a unified healthcare career training purpose and access to even greater resources so we can provide students with extraordinary personal experiences that enable them to create new futures for themselves and their families. Our already excellent education and training resources just got stronger,” Ernst added.
Medtech concentrates mainly on preparing students for careers in the healthcare industry. Students are challenged to discover new opportunities, develop inquisitive minds, and acquire the skills and professional confidence which allows them to maximize potential. In addition to intriguing classroom instruction, they learn by doing through customized hands-on training guided by industry professionals who provide the practical experience graduates need in order to excel in their chosen field.
Medtech’s extraordinary student experience provides alumni with the resources for setting professional goals and attaining success in a wide variety of healthcare disciplines. Medtech students can choose from enhanced program offerings supported by the resources of an educational network committed to excellent education and preparing students for extraordinary new futures in the medical field.
