Jerry Holacka, RHIT Medical Records

My on-going career in the Medical Record’s field began at Dallas County MHMR, now Metrocare Services, on June 29, 1992 when I applied for and was accepted for the position of setting up a Medical Records Department for their new Inpatient Program, called Mental Health Connections, which was on the 9th floor of St. Paul Hospital. This was my first in being part of Metrocare’s Mission to serve our neighbors with developmental or mental health challenges by helping them find lives that were meaningful and satisfying, as most of my past years of experience was in acute care Hospitals. The knowledge I learned in my role of daily record-keeping, then all hand-written documentation, (before the days of Computer accessibility), was how all our Consumers were followed and cared for in the Inpatient Unit, with continued  follow-up in the Outpatient setting by Staff and Clinicians involved in their care; which definitely was a  rewarding process to witness. Yes, rewarding, definitely my adrenalin for wanting to come to the office daily, - wishes my earlier record years had been in Mental Health Services.

Yes, we have all come a long way in our journey in providing Metrocare Services, with changes occurring daily, but lastly I want to say, I am very proud to be a team-worker in this journey’s process. 

Ryan Holliday, Intern - Altshuler Center for Education & Research

My name is Ryan Holliday and I am a current graduate student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. Having my placement at Metrocare has been great for multiple reasons. First and foremost, I have received state of the art training in research- and evidence-based techniques that the top clinics and the hospitals in the country are using. Additionally, the staff has been both supportive and knowledgable, helping me grow both as a person and as a provider. But most of all, I am getting to give back to the populations that need it- to the Dallas community as a whole.

Selena Miles, Program Manager - DDP

I joined the Metrocare team because I believed in the Agency’s core values: Integrity, Quality, Diversity, and Perseverance. Five years into my journey with Metrocare, it’s rewarding to see the changes we have made as an Agency to ensure we stay focused on these values at all times.  I have had the opportunity to grow within the management team within Metrocare and learn from a knowledgeable team of mentors within our Leadership. I’ve been provided opportunities to participate in leadership development conferences, learn a second language, and travel within the State of Texas to network with other providers.  I’m a part of a team that celebrates our successes but isn’t afraid to ask, “What can we achieve next and how can we support one another to get there?” which can be rare within work-settings these days! Being a team member of Metrocare is for the individual who wants to be successful at the services that others do not want to do. To me, this is the most rewarding type success to be a contributing member of.

Shana-Lee Dixon, People Coordinator - People Department

I love working at Metrocare Services for so many reasons!  We make an impact on our community by helping our consumers live a meaningful and satisfying life.  The staff is pleasant and truly have a heart for our consumers.  Metrocare Services believe in their employees by investing in us with our Professional Development program.  When many companies are removing such incentives, Metrocare Services sees the value in investing in their staff.  I am proud to be an employee at Metrocare Services.
