Admissions Registrar (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – September 4, 2016
I was paid well for my job responsibilities and the benefits that i had with this job were the best benefit packages that i have ever seen. If the store in panama City had not closed, i would probably still be working with the company.
Sterile Technologist (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – October 19, 2016
GCMC was my first exposure to the medical field. After working at GCMC I knew that I had what it took to work in the medical field. I learned about surgery and the sterilization process of instruments.

nurse, staff pool (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – September 30, 2012
short staffing a normal. Do more with less daily. Budget the biggest concern. Patient safety questionable. Benefits lacking. No loyalty to staff. Family life becomes few and far between. Administration caters to patients with money and social status. Management not receptive to staff concerns. Pay average with raises nonexistent.
Medical assistant/pharmacy tech (Current Employee) – Port Richey, FL – November 3, 2012
Arriving to work is usually the first challenge of a typical day with regards to knowing which of the multiple buildings to report to and the constantly changing start times. Once there, things run at a fast pace with a good team of co-workers helping to triage patients along with entering information into the EMR system. It is always very difficult to take issues or concerns to management due to lack of communication between management and employees. Many different services offer many different learning opportunities which in turn gains employees valuable information to carry along. The amiability between like positions is a great attribute where as the lack of with management is quite disconcerting.
the nursing staff work well as a unit to keep the patient flow and doctor on time.
changing schedules, lack of management, poor benefits, and no vacation time or paid holidays.
Insurance Biller/Follow-up (Former Employee) – Biloxi, Ms – September 15, 2012
My employment at Gulf Coast was a good and positive work experience. The staff and employees was very friendly. And always took the time to assist you, if needed. Gulf Coast also offered great benefits and provided activities to promote employee moral.
Gulf Coast Medical Center is a very enjoable workplace.
Registered Pharmacy Technician (Current Employee) – Panama City, FL – July 31, 2013
Gulf Coast Medical Center is a wonderful hospital. Top 100 in the area. Their facility works as a whole. Starting with the Physicians down to the valet parking. There is not one person at that hospital that doesn't have a great attitude knowing and living our core values. I have learned a lot at this job, considering I came from a retail background. A in house facility is very different compared to assisting the public. we have the best team of pharmacists, technicians, clinical pharmacists, and management. I think that the hardest part of the job is the emergency orders(stat) that come from the ER. Handling them is very enjoyable and gratifying.
working with a great team and ensuring that patients get better
Registered Nurse, ICU (Former Employee) – Ft Myers – December 26, 2013
Moved from another state to accept FT nursing position in ICU. Fired when season was over and patient population dropped. Lee Memorial has a monopoly on hospitals in Lee County, all but one are owned by LMH. If you're terminated from one, you have no options. The ICU at GCMC is HUUUUGE. 32 beds in 3 sections. They have a high patient turnover and you never have the same patient twice for a full shift. Constant admit and transfer. No continuity of care. Insurance companies dictate all care. So if you have little or no insurance, you don't get the same care as the snowbird next door.
Surgical Technician (Former Employee) – Panama City, FL – August 25, 2012
At the start of my day I will review my cases and make sure I have all supplies and equipment up and functioning. Check my rooms to make sure they are clean and free of blood and bodily fluids. Check with management to make sure there aren't any special task that I need to complete for that day. Assist my co-workers if help is needed. As a surgical tech there are times when the schedule may become hectic and it always subject to change. Being able to adapt being and experienced in all specialties allows me to handle change with ease.
Assistant Director of IT / Government Analyst (Former Employee) – Wharton, Texas – January 9, 2015
I loved working for GCMC it was my second family. I worked there for 28 yrs. I looked forward to the daily routines of running reports, balancing systems and data entry into the systems. My co workers were like family. I enjoyed everything about my job except when our network went down or we had internet issues.

Unit Coordinator - Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – May 23, 2012
I love my job. I actually look forward to going into work, which isn't something that a lot of people can say. A typical day is spent entering and interpreting orders, helping medical staff and management stay in sync with each other and helping my co-workers maintain a safe patient environment.
Registered Nurse ER / ER Admit (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – June 3, 2013
everyday is an experience to learn as the people around you are always willing to help and teach. management isnt high and mighty but eye to eye willing to work shoulder to shoulder. The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job are the patients the ones that refuse to learn and the ones accept the help and learn a little more about themselves.
COOK (Former Employee) – Panama City, Fl. – February 1, 2012

Radiologic Technologist, Per Diem (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – May 6, 2013
Working at GCMC was a great experience. I learned so much and got to work with great techs! The hardest part of the job was seeing my patients suffer. The most enjoyable part of working at GCMC was the strong learning environment and positive co-workers.
