UCT and Secretary (Former Employee) – Brownwood, TX – October 19, 2016
BRMC was a nice place to work. Especially with my coworkers. Unforunatley I needed a tonsillectomy at the time and my health was more important to . But my life was more importnat to me. They were very understanding. But my passion was not there.
One of my favorite places to is BRMC. I loved my job. I loved the responsibilities that I had. Even with going to patient rooms to collect money, I always left the room smiling because somehow I would always make friends with the clients. I love working in the ER. That was always eventful.
One the other hand I had some difficulties with the staff. Staff members thought I was brought in to be above them just because I have a pretty face and I was so youns at 27 yrs old. Although, it was hard at times I remained friendly and professional and finally the worst of it passed.
not enough communication or treating people equally

I love my job but outside of my department the other departments are not team players. No department wants to work with others. Clinical staff is not held accountable for their actions. Clerical people are treated very poorly and management could care less. Hospital does not stand behind their employees or their managers when situations arise. Management (directors, ceos etc are rarely seen outside their own departments and the o's are NEVER seen) pay is poor for the expectations.

this place has longevity as long as you don't expect much in the way of pay or respect.You can actually make more at BiG LOTS.They have respect of person so if you are in their in crowd,you should be ok.Pay raises are on a 'do i like you' basis and has absolutely nothing to do with job performance.
In the time I was employed at Brownwood Regional, I realized that this smaller hospital in the middle of nowhere is a very efficient patient-care machine. I was very proud to be a member of the BRMC team and enjoyed my employment there a great deal. While there were days that the challenges were difficult, the Med Techs in the lab were always willing to jump in and help. I do wish CHS would increase the pay, but that is the only negative aspect of working at BRMC. As a former employee, e.r. patient and surgical patient, I can honestly say there is not a department in this hospital that doesn't strive for excellence.
Have lived and worked in Brownwood most of my life. I remember a time when this hospital was community based and centered, I have watched company after company take over the hospital and each seemed to get progressively worse when it comes to supporting the community and employees but the current management has taken this hospital to a new low. I have moved on but I worked as a nurse for almost 7 years for BRMC and have a few friends who still do and it is disappointing to see this hospital gutted by the current management like it has been lately by contracting nearly every ancillary service and consistatly keeping the pay scale low. Hopefully at some point this will be a community focused hospital again.
Mercenary, inadequate services avaiable, few opportunities to learn new procedures.

I enjoyed working with my coworkers. They were always willing to help one another and were very concerned about their patients. The problem(s) in my department stemmed from the administration's unwillingness to allow us to have a department manager with the power to effect positive change. The department is staffed with good employees who desire to learn more and want expanded responsibilities. However, the medical staff and administration view the department as strictly subservient and somewhat unnecessary. This view is antiquated and insulting to most professional clinicians, thus most work without hope of offering the community improved services. The physicians are congenial and very approachable. However, to their detriment, they cannot see the advantages of actively pursuing improved services and educational structures.
mercenary business office, no educational opportunities and antiquated view of Cardiopulmonary staff.
They are all hard working people . they all love their jobs and they are amazing at it. very supportive managers. They are willing to do anything for the customers they see. they want everyone to be happy and healthy. They are very fast and responsible at their positions.
I really enjoyed working and caring for people. You never knew what kind of work day you would have, it was always different. The differences in work days always me on my toes. Management and even coworkers were always willing to help if the was a need.
Friendly work place, everyone eager to help, Loved doing the 12 hour shifts

Horrible Hospital to work at. Nursing staff is lazy and bad attitudes are abound in this poor ,broken down hospital and to add for every RN you have un-educated LPN's (who think they are RN's)of which no other hospital in Tx hires them anymore. The ER is staffed by RN's who think they have ED experience and the Paramedics are dangerous, you put your life in the hands of individuals who will let you die. The turnover here is very high and management could care less and cannot keep skilled employee's.
I enjoyed working here with patients and employees.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Brownwood, TX – June 22, 2013
Working in a fast pace job. We were all team members working together and having fun while doing our jobs. Our prices at that time were very cheap. Every once in a while an employee would say that i charged them to much and i would explain the portion size that they had, They understood and were very friendly. I enjoyed seeing smiling faces coming through our food line.
Not always met with warm peer relations; nor was patient care from the seasoned nurses always acceptable on my assigned floor; this was my first RN position after graduating and some years past. I have worked with some staff on many floors since then in a different role and have always been treated respectfully and the care my patients received was very caring.
I worked 12 hour shifts and enjoyed the 4 days off weekly. My manager was very kind and fair. The co-workers were very good team players. I feel like they were very compassionate to the patients. The job was somewhat stressful, as they did not have computer charting like my previous job.
