Thursday, October 28, 2010

C.J. Enterprises, Inc. (CJE) is celebrating its 30th anniversary as a records and information management company "providing quality services to health care facilities, governmental agencies and commercial businesses."

Clients, business associates and friends are invited to a celebration from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 5 at CJE offices, 7010 Lee Highway, Suite 214. The Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce is coordinating a ribbon cutting at 1 p.m.

Carolyn Goolsby Jones, president, and Edward G.

Jones, executive vice president, founded CJE in 1980 under the company’s original name – C.J. Health Records Consultant Services, Inc. The purpose of the company was to provide health information management services primarily to healthcare facilities.

Today the minority woman-owned business has nearly 100 full-time and part-time employees, consultants and teaming partners. The company provides services to clients all over the country and has offices in other parts of Tennessee and in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Ohio and Texas. CJE has also expanded internationally with a teaming partner located in New Zealand.

Charles Kimbrough serves as vice president of CJE.

“Statistics show that only a quarter of new firms stay in business 15 years or more,” Mrs. Jones says. “This is why this 30-ear milestone is such an accomplishment. We attribute our success to our Heavenly Father, dedicated employees, supportive clients and repeat business.”

For the past 30 years, the company and/or Mrs. Jones has been recognized and honored with one or more awards each year. CJE staff members give back to the Chattanooga community in many ways – through service on boards, by mentoring other minority and women-owned businesses and by contributing to community causes.

CJE services include electronic redaction software services; health information management support; document conversion and scanning; records and information management; web design and hosting; and business support, among other services.
