Excellent place to work good to patients and it's employees
Office Manager/ Admitting Clerk (Former Employee) – Scottsboro, AL – November 27, 2017
Highlands Medical Center is a hospital located in Scottsboro, AL I enjoyed my time there. I just could not work that swing shifts that was required of me at that time. Having to work 1st, 2nd and 3rd shifts all in ine week was hard to get adjusted too.
Gave Paid time off when needed
Some hours as Admitting clerk was why I had to quit
Very bad place to work, especially for a mid manager

This facility was the most poorly run hospital I ever worked at. Department heads were ignored by upper management except when something happened. Then, it was the fault of the department head. In my case, since our Center had to be accredited, I had certain standards to meet. Upper management told me to lie to the review board about compliance. When I refused, I was terminated. This is an example of the environment. By the way, it took three people to replace me.
Nurse (Former Employee) – Scottsboro, AL – December 29, 2017
The only thing I miss is my coworkers. Management made it clear that employees were replaceable and did not seem to truly care about them. The staffing ratios were dangerous a lot of times with nurses caring for way too many patients to be safe. When approached, management would dismiss concerns. Would not go back as an employee.

always on your toes as soon as you get done with one thing there is 3 more to do but I loved it. My grandparent died when I was young so by working here it was like having 15 grandparents and being able to help them with the things they need help with on a daily basis was a very wonderful feeling. The hardest part of this job would most definitely be when a patient was lost or when one recovered enough to go home and the two of you had become close that one would be tough but also be enjoyable because you knew they were going back home to their family and continue on.

Well, ever since our unit manager and DON have retired, the place really has had no management worth a spit. The hospital does provide good care and the staff are great. However, the pay is low, no raises and god forbid, you waste any money there.
Outpatient Coder (Former Employee) – Scottsboro, AL – June 30, 2017
A typical work day for me was to get up early and start working from a wordlist list provided by the employer. My supervisor was very nice and knew I would perform my daily duties independently each day. The most enjoyable part of the job was working remote and having my work available each day.
IMAGING ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Scottsboro, AL – June 2, 2017
The time I spent working at Highlands is a highlight of my adult working life. I looked forward to going in every day. It was a pleasure to assist the patients as my primary responsibility was to transport them to x-ray ect..
