TUCKER, Ga. – (Jan, 19, 2011) – Javelin Technical Training Center, a leading post-secondary healthcare education training provider in Tucker, has changed its name to Medtech Institute.

The schools include the three Javelin Technical Training Centers in greater Atlanta and three Sanz Schools in the Washington, D.C., area that will adopt the Medtech name, along with four current Medtech campuses in the Midwest.
The schools were brought together under single ownership less than a year ago. Medtech President and CEO John L. Hopkins’ mission was to create a powerful, extraordinary education company that will provide a distinctive education experience. To achieve that goal, Medtech is establishing new learning and service standards within the industry while preserving each school’s legacy and healthcare 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.”

The affiliation also reinforces the school’s primary focus: training students for extraordinary careers in the in-demand healthcare industry as its highest 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 campus Executive Director Elizabeth Cook. “The transition to Medtech demonstrates our commitment to providing students in Tucker everything they need to live extraordinary lives and create extraordinary new futures for themselves and their families as in-demand healthcare professionals.”

And, as Medtech continues to expand, the resources, expertise and programs at the Tucker campus will grow as well. The Tucker campus has been an integral part of the community for five years.
“We are still Tucker’s 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,” Cook added.
