At Alpha One Imaging we view our employees like family, and everyone makes an important contribution to the team. When we serve patients, businesses, and Nursing Homes in the community we hope to bring the “family” feel with us. It’s easy to just do a “job” but to infuse your work with passion and caring makes a marked difference in the treatment that our patients receive. We want to take the time to introduce our team and tell you more about what they do. Meet Ruby Hood, our Medical Biller.

My name is Ruby Hood and I graduated from the Medical Training College in 2013 in Medical Billing & Coding. I have been working for Alpha One for little over a year now. In my spare time I love to cook, sew, play online video games and spend time with my family. Family is very important to me. I spend most of my free time helping take care my parents and my sister. But, I wouldn’t trade it for the world!

I decided to go into medical billing for a couple of reasons: first and foremost is that I wanted a career and not just a job. There is a big difference in the two. A job is something you take to get by, but a career is something you choose to do because you love doing it. A career, simply put, is a job you learn to love and wouldn’t mind growing old doing. That’s why I became a medical biller. Of course it didn’t hurt that most of my family also works for a local hospital. I love what I do and I love working for Alpha One Imaging. Working for Alpha One has been the greatest blessing in my life. I prayed for years for the Lord to send me the right opportunity and He did. Everyone that I work with has such great attitudes and they work so very hard. They are some of the best people I know. When you come to Alpha One you become part of the family. For that is what is feels like here…FAMILY! Truly I cannot imagine working anywhere else. It’s almost like I get to play a very small part in helping people. I may not be on the front lines doing x-rays or ultrasounds, but our part in the office is still important in my opinion. We are helping others, it’s just behind the scenes.
