Clerical Support (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – April 6, 2017
a typical day at work is pleasant. i have ganged knowledge of the processes it takes to process a patient. Management has it pro's and con's. the work atmosphere is family oriented the hardest part of the job is continuing to do your part even when fellow employees are not doing their part. the most enjoyable part is when the atmosphere is relaxed
A typical day depends on the shift you work as it varies. The hardest part of the job is usually the early morning lab draws. Management has changed since I was there last so I don't really have current information.
For the most part, positive review because of the excellent nurses in a critical environment. Dependable team players always make hard work easier. Revolving door for unit managers as there has been way too much upper management "requirements". Healthcare changes very hard on smaller community hospitals. Education department always very supportive of advance degrees and continuing education.
Small town easy to get to
Managment reports pay is competive with statewide but is NOT!
Acute Care Nurse (Former Employee) – Hermiston, OR – March 31, 2017
Very close knit community of employees where everyone knows each other, patients and hospital staff alike. Loved working there. Good rapport with all team members for better interdisciplinary collaborative care.
RN (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – January 16, 2017
I have been an employee at GSMC for over 23 years. I have learned how to work independently and as a team player being both a staff nurse and a charge nurse. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the smile on a patient's face and to know I have helped them or made a positive difference in their stay. I have developed many friendships with co-workers and it will be difficult to leave my present job. Due to a reduction in work force they are eliminating my department and I have to pursue employment elsewhere.
Lead Technologist Nuclear Medicine (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – January 10, 2017
Typical day includes numerous activities including but not limited to, ordering, distributing and tracking supplies, coordinating interdepartmental schedules, patient care, following physicians orders, and data transfer. In the course of my employment I have had the opportunity to write and disseminate policies and procedures for the specific department in which I worked. I have learned the inter-working of regulatory and compliance agencies for numerous regulatory entities. The most enjoyable part of my job was working one-on-one with the patient and making sure their needs were met and questions were answered.

it was a good job lots of physical work , work friendly environment,Good management team,learn a lot of cool things,best thing about job get to work and interact with different people,enjoyed meeting others
A typical shift is going in not knowing what to expect, simply because you're working in the emergency department and all sorts of situations comes through on a daily basis. It's sometime emotional because you can get attached to some patients that are very ill and depend on you. For the most part, I like the workplace.
Continuing Medical Education Coordinator (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – December 29, 2016
Good Shepherd Medical Center was a wonderful place to work. It offered benefits and room to grow as an employee. During my tenure at Good Shepherd, I had the privilege of writing the application for the continuing medical education (CME) program with Texas Medical Association. I planned, coordinated and facilitated the CME programs for physicians and "grew" the program from four CME programs to 19 CME programs each month with approximately 45-60 physician participants.
I enjoyed my time with GSMC, it was a great place to work and I learned a lot about working in the medical field there. They encouraged and even paid for much of my education and for that I will forever be grateful to them.
The morall level was always high for the most part during my time there.
I learned a lot working for the Labor and Delivery floor. I was responsible for 80+ employees and they depended on me to help them with any of their issues or concerns. We built a great relationship and it brought me joy to help them.
