Employee Spotlight

Sammarra Platt-Smith
Business Office Manager

I am the Business Office Manager at St. Gregory and Ivory Plains.  I work with clients to understand insurance billing and their portion of payment.  I also process Accounts payable which makes sure all the bills for both buildings are paid accurately and timely.  At the end of the month, I make sure the credit cards have receipts for expenses and that the company knows which department needs to be accountable for the spending.  Every day I review the admits and discharges to make sure they are accurate and send reports to the home office regarding the number of clients in-house.   It takes a lot of time on the computer and looking at the screen, I rely on many other departments to provide me with information and complete the necessary paperwork for the file to be accurate.
