Attn Recruiters. Does my cover letter sound like to much blah, blah, blah?

I want to send the below cover letter for an Office Assistant position. I'm trying to state some solid experience and skills...backed up with related info, but I'm struggling with the letter. Half of me thinks its good...the other half thinks it might come off as just a bunch of Blah, blah, blah and wont get the hiring managers interest. Please read and let me know what you think. Much thanks. Dear Hiring Manager, Good Morning. I am writing in response to your advertisement for a Office Assistant at ___(Company)___, as I have several years of experience in related positions and skills. Through those positions I have performed at one time or another and developed solid skills in all of the items you described for this positions typical daily office tasks. I have just come off an assignment at __(Company)__ that involved communicating with patients, their families and all levels of medical staff both verbally and in written form during the processing of detailed orders, which utilized my strong and effective oral and written communications skills. My job at the __(Company)___ in the Records Management departments specifically involved tasks of "filing, scanning, recording, maintaining of electronic and hard copy records". At ___(Company)___ I worked directly in the Data Entry and Filing department. Please see my resume for more detailed information on these positions. I would also like to mention that I can type 45 wpm and was just tested on Kenexa Prove It! Data Entry AlphaNumeric test and scored 8150 adjusted kph, should typing and data entry skills also be required for this position. Being detailed oriented and organized are standards of my work ethics. If I am given something to file labeled for folder XYZ001A....that's what folder you will find it in (as opposed to XYZ01A, for example), should you go to look for it later. As mentioned I have also performed other administrative duties including copying, faxing, scanning and am an intermediate user of MS Office's programs such as Word, Excel and Outlook. Please review my resume and if you would like to hear some more about my skills, previous positions and duties or myself, I would welcome the opportunity for an interview. Thank you for your time and consideration and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, ....so...what do you think??

Way too long.. You are just repeating what should be on your resume. Remember, the person reading your letter wants you to be brief and to the point.
