Staff Perfusionist (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – February 2, 2017
As a hospital employee I found the hospital to be fair and one of the better hospital settings for employment. The specific cardiac team was very established and familiar with all the aspects of open heart procedures accomplished at this institution, and demonstrated a caring and familial attitude toward all of the team members. The patient's welfare and outcome was always the priority, and the surgeons and staff made certain that this was at the forefront of any procedure and that all staff members were on board with the patient care philosophies of the hospital and the surgeons.
PARAMEDIC (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – October 1, 2016
Working as Paramedic at this company is stressful and unrewarding . Low pay , expensive benefits package , no advancement opportunities and no future . It is only good place to start working there , if you have no experience , get some experience and move to other place . Their units are old with very poor maintenance , just getting by . They hire anyone with peace of paper in hand and that relates to quality of personnel . There are some good and experienced Paramedics , but only handful . Moral is awful and turn over is high .
Busy place, will get experience to move on to other company .
Medical Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – November 22, 2016
Most days are busy enough to make the time go by fast. Supervisors are supportive and provide constructive feedback. Through training from my coworkers and supervisor I am confident in my abilities to do my job here. We always get a 15 minute break and a half hour lunch. One of the downsides is that the cafeteria food is horrible (pack your lunch!) and they are very strict about overtime. You have to clock out at 8 hours on the dot. My coworkers help out when we are short staffed and if I have a conflict with my schedule they are willing to trade shifts to get adequate coverage.
Also if you're moving to Lawton from out of state - this is a good place to work. A hospital is a hospital is a hospital. Lawton is like a bubble with nothing to do. I wouldn't recommend living here unless you had to and this whole town is stuck in the 90s. Pay is reflected in that. Living in Oklahoma is cheap so you get paid less.
great place to use your skills, short staff and sometimes unprofessional

Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Lawton, OK – February 26, 2016
I enjoyed the job, it kept me busy and I helped guests by answering questions or directing them where they needed to go, providing information. I made sure doctor orders were followed through by giving the orders to the nurses, send requisitions to departments for patient treatment. Enter information into computer, make sure charts are maintained and kept. I enjoyed the routine and helping others. The hardest part of the job was making sure that every detail was accurate, but I checked and rechecked all information to make sure all information was accurate.
Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Lawton, OK – October 29, 2015
A typical day at work for me includes patient care. At the office I work for we see patients with complex medical problems and not always stable. I work hard to ensure that the patient I am dealing with have the best patient care possible. Each individual patient has a story and each story needs a strong medical professional to be part of it. My coworkers are all very dedicated to patient care, just like I am. We work together as a team to make the workplace as happy and as positive as possible, seeing that the patients we see do not want to be in the medical position that they are in. The hardest part of my job is seeing a patient that I have dear to my heart get more ill or even pass away. The best part of my job is watching my patients have a positive attitude and watching them strive to become healthier.

Comanche County Memorial Hospital was a great places to work. A typical day at work was running around and take care of patients. I learned a lot like how to on hook a IV and etc.. The management was great and I couldn`t ask for better management. I enjoy working with the co-worker. But their were some co-worker that I just didn`t understand why they even came to work some days and that was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part of work was take care of the patients. productive and fun workplace
