Dear Mr. Thompson:

My enthusiastic personality, my office management experience and my general desire to work in a healthcare setting makes me an excellent fit as a Hospital Secretary at Sutter Health. It is mentioned in your advertisement on indeed.com that you are looking to hire someone on immediate basis and I would like to let you know that I am available to join immediately.

I have been left without a job following the burning down of the Utah Hospice last month. Since they have no intention of reopening the hospital, I would like to explore other options. I have worked as a hospital secretary for five years and have the capability of handling both regular office and hospital specific work simultaneously. I am CPR certified and possess thorough comprehension of medical office procedures. I am also proficient in using the computer along with utilizing billing software efficiently. Since this position requires an individual to be in contact with people continuously, I have been trained in handling patients’ enquiries with precision.

I am positive that my experience and talents will be useful to you and would like to meet you in person for which I will call you after one week. If you need to contact me in the meantime, I will be available at (895) 557-1155. I appreciate your time to review my job application and resume (enclosed).
