Nuclear Medicine Technologist (Current Employee) – Bay City, MI – July 22, 2017
With the saturation of health care workers seeking employment, they only hire per diem or part time employees with no chance of advancement. They outright tell you in a communication from the CEO that if you do not give your all to Mclaren every day regardless of how you are treated that you should look for work somewhere else.
Nice manager and coworkers. Exercise room provided. Gave 150.00 towards gym membership fee

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Bay City, MI – March 7, 2017
Volunteered two days a week where one day was with the out patient surgical department and one day in the surgical scheduling department putting paper work for charting together to be used by the doctors and nurses with patients. I really enjoyed volunteering in the surgical out patient department as I got to meet and help with the families of patients. This was to inform them of updates during surgery, if need be, keeping the waiting room clean and the snack area provided with beverages and snacks, visiting with the families that were anxious about their loved one's surgery, taking family to recovery room and also to the patients room if they were admitted. I also answered the phone and put together paperwork the nurses and doctors used for each patient if their supply was low.
Meeting and helping patients and their family/friends.
Staying after ward clerk left for the day and business was slow with nothing to do.

Registrar (Current Employee) – Bay City, MI – February 10, 2017
I've worked here for a little less than two years. The supervisors/managers can be compassionate at times. Attitude of co-workers depends on the department you work in. I loved working in the Human Resources department, but the department I've been in now is a little less caring. Overall, I give it 4 stars.
Dietary Aide (Current Employee) – Bay City, MI – January 4, 2017
Mornings are very busy in the kitchen as we only have 30 to 45 min to get everything together before we start working. Everyone seems to get along well with each other, which makes the days go by fast.
Top heavy corporation although most of the staff is great and comes together well as a team.
Surgical Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Bay City, MI – December 8, 2016
Management is top heavy within the building. Too many managers without answers to staffing issues and not enough staff to keep up with the case loads. Departments are short staffed and quickly burning out. Staff is frequently mandated to stay past shift. Changes that are usually brought forth by management/directors/CEOs are not taken seriously and often revert back without notice, confusing the staff. There also does not seem to be any accountability.
Often mandated to stay past shift or to pick up call with little notice.
Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Bay City, MI – June 7, 2015
When working in the hospital, I worked with hospice, oncology, and pediatric patients. At any given day, anything could happen. I was expected to do morning rounds, and get vital signs and report to the nurse any abnormalities. My coworkers and I knew the importance of team work, and did everything we could to ensure our patients were taken care of. The hardest part of my job, was seeing the patients suffer or become unhappy because of improper staffing. However, I loved working with my patients, and doing what I could to keep a smile on their face, and keep their hopes high. Working as a team is vital in a hospital, and I loved my coworkers.
Excellent opportunity to work with various health care disciplines and health care providers.
