Post Partum Nurse (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX – November 29, 2017
I loved working at Bay Area in the Post Partum Dept. I learned a lot from this experience & was incredibly rewarding work. What I didn't like were the hours. I was supposed to work til 7p but never got out before 8 or 830p every work day, mostly due to the shift change process.
Clerical (Current Employee) – Marinette, WI – January 30, 2018
The culture at BAMC is completely awful. They claim there is transparency within the organization and that is why they schedule regular Town Hall meetings, yet it is just smoke and mirrors where they try to make the crumbling financial situation somehow look positive (yet for some reason everyone is on a pay freeze). Administration is completely out of touch and insensitive to employee needs. There is such a strong emphasis on meeting quotas (productivity, etc.) that zero consideration is ever given to work/life balance. The current leadership is awful. The CEO is a brick-head that doesn't engage with staff; his arrogance is apparent. Luckily, Aurora is in the process of taking control over the entire organization, one clinic at a time, so BAMC's current administration should be hitting the unemployment lines soon enough. A new hospital isn't going to fix the flaws of this organization. They need to clean house - starting with the third floor.

Hands on care, it was exciting to continue to learn. There was always support and advance skill training. Overall a great place to work. The hospital gave me the opportunity learn skills that will be used the rest of my career.
flexible scheduling, continuing education, and excellent benefits.

Working at Bay Area Medical Center was a fun, exciting, and wonderful place to work. I worked the evening shift and was very satisfied and loved. all my Co -workers . Managers and Supervisor were also fun to work with.
worker (Former Employee) – Marinette, WI – September 1, 2015
Co-workers are allowed to continue poor behaviors, rule breaking, etc. and nothing is addressed. Even if addressed continuing behaviors are repeatedly ignored. Schedules are a free for all and seniority takes precedence so the less seniority you have, there is no choosing like the more senior workers on days on/off, etc. This leaves any co-worker with a selfish agenda and more seniority the opportunity to take advantage of less senior people and schedule a three day weekend for themselves every weekend for the entire summer (which is also completely ignored.) Criticism is common place along with impatience from nurses, and other staff. Cheerfulness or helpfulness gets you nowhere. Not an easy place to work.
Physician Biller (Former Employee) – Marinette, WI – August 2, 2015
First thing in the morning, I would verify each patients insurance information in my alpha split. The alphabet was divided by patient last name. Next, I would check my claims for errors and correct them before they were sent to payers. Then I would work my day files which consisted of accounts that were billed 1 month ago or accounts that I had worked but needed more attention. I would make my phone calls to insurance companies as to why we haven't received payment yet and then do any re-bills that are needed. Checking explanation of benefits for my accounts, noting in the account what the balance is or why it was rejected and then doing any re-bills.
What I really like was my co-workers, we really worked as a team. The hardest part of my job was talking to patients after a procedure was performed, that the procedure wasn't covered by their insurance. This problem was resolved when the company created a department that performed the pre-surgical approval.
