It is a busy environment with many days of being short staffed. I have learned a large portion of nutrition information pertaining to patients. The management team of my department has been very unbalanced and needs some serious review. I think that it would be best to hire within in order to eliminate the issue of management not having an understanding of what those within their department do. The hardest part of the job is working short on a regular basis with no real support from management team. The most enjoyable part of working for this organization are the people that are worked with on a daily basis.

I would still be working for this company if our positions were not coming to an end. I have been there for 18 years and have always been satisfied with this company. They offer education advancement within the company
I organize and plan the interventional radiologist schedule throughout the day. I communicate with just about levels and modalities in the hospital to do this. Prioritizing and interaction with all personnel necessary is essential. I also perform intra procedural sedation and monitoring and recovery. Very challenging job.
No matter what department you work in whether it is housekeeping or you are the CEO of the hospital everyone is treated the same. You can always walk down any hallway and see a familiar face and know that they will at least acknowledge you and say hi. Most if not all employees of the hospital go above and beyond to not only provide exceptional care but also to help their coworkers do the same.
FMC is a good place to work. The culture is compassionate and welcoming. Management cares about the patients and the employees. The best part of the job is being able to help the patients with clinical and financial concerns.
This organization is not affiliated with other health care systems and desires to remain independent. Being a small hospital provides enormous value to the community. Staff are very friendly and have worked at this hospital many years. Many managers have worked their way up, while others have come from larger health systems. Workplace culture is established around the Disney Institute. The most enjoyable part of working at FMC is the kind hearted people who work there.
sometimes the work load was overwhelming. i learned a great deal of iv, critical skills, cardiac, and much more there. i enjoyed making people feel better. the worst thing about fmc was the health insurance. they didn't hardly cover and if they did it took forever to get them to approve anything.

The culture at FMC is changing but not completely. Some old management still in place perpetuating old culture and using the new culture values to target employees. Too much damage occurs before leadership addresses it. HR doesn't follow own published policies and procedures. Favoritism and nepotism is rampant.
