Shana Bradford and Stacy Mahaney of the Canandaigua-based The Eye Care Center have received recognition.
Bradford was named premium services supervisor. Since 2014, her work as a member of the team at The Eye Care Center has enabled her to collaborate on building the practice. Bradford has held numerous positions, including working as the marketing coordinator, cosmetic coordinator, patient educator/certified technician and the premium services coordinator.
Through her work, Bradford has directly educated patients on premium intraocular lens and surgery options available. Her experience includes cross-training other medical staff to ensure strong patient rapport. Bradford has earned numerous designations, including certified ophthalmic assistant, ultherapist, Venus Versa technician, peel technician, Wavescan technician and VISX Laser technician. Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with her kids and camping, running, biking and traveling.
Mahaney was named operations manager. For nearly 20 years, she has worked for The Eye Care Center in numerous roles in clinical operations. In 2008, she was named clinical team leader and in 2011, she was made the clinical supervisor.
Mahaney will be shifting from day-to-day oversight of the clinicians. Her new role will be taking a wider view of overall operations, quality control and practice performance improvements. In addition, she will continue as the research coordinator for the practice.
She graduated from Canandaigua Academy and has completed concentrations at the Practice Management Institute and the International Joint Commission on allied health personnel in ophthalmology. When out of the office, Mahaney spends time with her family and friends, where they enjoy all season outdoor activities. Personally, she likes exploring fitness and nutrition, conducting research, and continuing education.
“These team members have been promoted at a time that is significant,” said Practice Administrator Terry Parsons. “Their combined knowledge, expertise and commitment to ensuring excellent eye care services for our patients will play a vital part in the continuing growth of The Eye Care Center.”
