Dear Mr. Brown:
This is with reference to your advertisement for the position of a Patient Transporter at the Family Health Hospital. I am an enthusiastic individual with a strong background in working in a healthcare setting and would like to offer my services for this position.
I have a demonstrated ability to operate various transport devices such as wheelchairs and stretchers in a safe manner and a keen understanding of safe lifting techniques. Since working with patients is often difficult due to the pain and discomfort involved, I know just how to manage irate patients by employing empathy and professionalism. Additionally, I am comfortable with lifting heavy objects and patients as I possess good physical dexterity.
I have enclosed my resume with this letter as a first step in applying for this Patient Transporter position and will follow up with you in a week’s time in order to obtain an interview. Besides, I will be available at (400) 444-444 in the interim.
Thank you in advance for considering this application.
