CEENTA is frequently honored as one of the best places to work in the area. In addition to the Business North Carolina awards, the Charlotte Business Journal has named it one of the best places to work every year from 2010 to 2015, as well as one of the healthiest employers of Greater Charlotte from 2011-2015. The Charlotte Observer also named CEENTA one of the best places to work in 2015.
Many CEENTA employees have worked here for many years, and agree that it is one of the best places to work.
“I’ve worked in multiple positions over the past 18 years with CEENTA and seen it grow from a small multispecialty group to its present size,” Alicia Wilkinson, practice manager for CEENTA’s Belmont and Lincolnton offices, said. “The staff has a love for the company, physicians, and their coworkers and truly enjoys coming to work every day.”
Surgery Scheduler Betsy Walker, who nominated CEENTA for the Best Places award it won from the Observer, said she likes the way management respects the staff. “I wish I started my career here. I encourage all the new folks who start here to stay a long time.”
Optician Laura Johnson says the doctors bring a lot of knowledge to the table and are very easy to talk to. “I can ask a doctor a question directly,” she said. “We have a great rapport with the physicians and they appreciate the time we spend with their patients, too.”
