Friendly atmosphere without unrealistic demands on nursing staff. HMH has its issues like any other hospital but I've enjoyed working here and found it to have a more positive culture than HCA hospitals.
Data Processing Manager (Former Employee) – Huntsville, AR – October 19, 2017
When I started this job I actually started on the old switchboard and they was approached about billing, I accepted that position and stayed with the company until the receivership finished after they closed in 1992
Certified Clinical Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Madisonville, TX – August 29, 2017
Very unorganized. Poor management, over worked employee's with no intent to get help. No time to listen to problems to better the company. Constant lies to keep from giving a straight story or reason for something
The management team is very understanding and will work with you. The pay rate is not as high as some of the other facilities I have worked at, but the patient load is not unreasonable. Overall it is not a bad place to work.
Registered Nurse-ER Level IV Trauma (Former Employee) – Huntsville, TX – April 24, 2017
Good place to work, great staff, good pay, steady overtime. Pretty high turnover rate mainly due to location. Immediate management is outstanding, however upper management outside of the ER was subpar to put it politely. Would definitely recommend employment at HMH.
Upper management; location;no room for advancement
It is known in the community that patients would rather drive on to the next hospital than stop here and with good reason. Nursing staff are not nice to patients, or each other; providers are arrogant and not nice to patients and at time refuse to speak to patients. Management in the ED perpetuate dysfunctional employee culture by encouraging constant complaining about coworkers and not enforcing that everyone do their jobs. People who are happy within themselves can offer great service to their customers. There are quite a few unhappy employees working here which means they aren't capable of giving great care. My suggestion is they clean the slate and start fresh!

Nurse (Current Employee) – HMH, Huntsville – July 30, 2016
As a nurse, you get to balance your work & family life due to a low stress level as compared to other metropolitan/magnet hospitals. Also, you can learn alot, especially if you are novice nurse. The mgt is below average likewise the attitude of some fellow staff as well. There's politics/clashes between house sup/manager/director about staff scheduling/on call etc. Establishing ones self contentment, professional boundaries & self disciplines matters alot when dealing with fellow staff including CNA's.
You need to be very flexible and willing to put in extra effort/time. You are assisting people who are sick or in pain that do not have a whole lot of patience. You must have thick skin and a lot of compassion.
CNA (Current Employee) – Huntsville, TX – June 12, 2016
I enjoy the enthusiasm of my coworkers in this facility, as well as the overall cleanliness of the facility. Though there is no way to keep every patient 100% satisfied, I never came across a problem that was too hard to solve.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Huntsville, TX – May 17, 2015
My typical day at work is pretty busy, I am collecting and processing specimens of all types from patients on all hospital floors including ICU, ER, Med/Surg, Ob, and out patients. Adults and Pediatrics. ( Heel sticks, finger sticks, PKU's). Because of my experience, there isn't anything that I've really learned here. The management in the Lab department is extremely poor, allowing young unprofessional and inexperienced employees to violate the dress code, have unlimited breaks and lunches, unlimited tardies and absences. They run the show and do as they please. They also bully and harass the new employees, which causes the new employees to quit and is why they are constantly hiring. The hardest part of the job would have to be dealing with those employees. Having to do work for too and being harassed on top of it is really stressful. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting to do my job and be with my patients.
When clock in I get report from other CNA on patients, sometimes see management walk around, co workers are kind of hard to work with because of the lack of communication, the most enjoyable part about my job is helping the patients and after they receive their care I see a smile on their face
