Registered Nurse/Surgery (Former Employee) – Owosso, MI – December 29, 2015
This hospital was once a great place to work, but recent administration and board changes has had a negative affect on this hospital. The administration and board members are not listening to the staff or working with them for a positive output. The president and vice-president of the future progress of the hospital have no medical experience either does the CEO. So they are not moving the hospital forward.
Public Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Owosso, MI – July 23, 2015
Memorial Healthcare has great people and can be a great place to work. I enjoy all my coworkers. They pay well and the benefits are adequate. The patient care is excellent and the clinical staff is very good. I would recommend to everyone I know.
operator/registration clerk (Current Employee) – Owosso, MI – February 26, 2015
I start by running and completing daily reports, then I prepare surgery charts for the upcoming days, all the while I am answering the hospital switchboard and checking in Emergency patients. I fax paperwork to the proper areas, and I clean and stock my area for the next shift, and I do this all alone, with no co workers on my shift.
working around all the illnesses that come through the door
It was a great place to work in, schedule wasn't for me. I went to various middles and taught a curriculum based on drug prevention. Although the information given was older it was well for the students
Supervisory work (Former Employee) – Pembroke Pines, FL – January 6, 2015
Worked with many doctors which was pleasant. Learned a lot of staff and management but found the hospital environment a little to unstable as far as job security. As a supervisor, I would have to restructure my department to cut many of the jobs which was difficult. Many changes occurred while there but the work environment was nice.
This was a great opportunity for me to use my communication skills.
MEDICAL ASSISTANT, INSUCTOR, MANAGER (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – July 26, 2014
I was given an opportunity to educate our diabetic patients. This was an experience of a lifetime. I worked directly with our Medical Director and CEO to develop this program; working within the parameters and guidelines established by our medical team and our disease management department, I coordinated and implemented these procedures into a well designed manual for education. We received great positive feedback from our patients and they became more involved in the maintenance of their health. More importantly, I learned so much from them. I was saddened when our company had to close.
I would welcome again the opportunity to work with people in the development of their health issues and general well-being. I truly miss working with people.
a wonderful place to work. the patients were always our first concern.
not really many. the company was bought out by another health care organization.
Medical Office Assistant (Current Employee) – Physcians Office – May 24, 2014
Loved my job when I first started, similar to other reviewers above but definetly went downhill soon after started. Schedule changed frequently making chilcare impossible. Management didn't care. They never tried to understand or work on thier mistakes only pointing the blame so no heat was on them. Coworkers were great but need more praise as they are over looked and are the ones who run the offices. Lots if negetive feedback from Management, no praise whatsoever.
Patient Care Technician (Former Employee) – Owosso, MI – May 5, 2014
Working at Memorial Healthcare was a 12 hour 3rh shift job. It was a great learning experience working there. The nurses were great at answering questions and helping as I learned. I did blood pressures, blood draws, answered call lights and helped patients with all of there needs. I stocked lab trays and supplies, took dirty equipment to sterile prossessing and charted all of the patient notes, information and progress in the computer. The hardest part of the job was feeling like I didn't have enough one on one time with the patients and the best part of the job was caring for , understanding and getting to know the patients.
Environmental Specialist (Current Employee) – Owosso, MI – February 8, 2014
My day starts with a huddle from the manager to give updates about the senses. She lets us know about any issues pertaining to any specific area. She presents issues within our department and or complaints that need to be address as a whole. I learn that customer service is a priority on how people are treated regardless if it is a patient, or family member, or co-worker. Management is improving. My co-workers are hard workers, and misunderstood. The hardest part of my job is the lack of communication in my department, and completing daily tasks when short staffed. The most enjoyable part of my job is making a difference to the patient, family members, or hurting co-workers. I have been told I make a difference.
The friendly and helpful employees made it a nice place to work.
Medical Records Technician (Former Employee) – Owosso, MI – August 26, 2013
A typical day would include the following: process charts for scanning, query physicians for addtional information on charts, process physician office requests for medical records, answer phones, process patient requests for medical records.
I learned the various processes that a medical chart goes through before it can be released as a complete medical record.
Management regularly came to the office to discuss changes in the chart that would effect the steps of processing the chart.
My co-workers were very helpful when I faced new questions and requests. They would walk me through the various steps of how to process or answer a request.
The hardest part of the job was learning how to get to the various departments to pick up the charts.
Besides making new friends, the most enjoyable part of the job was knowing at the end of the day that I had done my best and put in a good days work.
Laborer (Former Employee) – Owasso, MI – December 9, 2012
People get fired there for no apparent reason. Started working there and found out how unorganized they are. When hired in, I had been told that my input would be appreciated. That was soon told that I should shut up and just do what they say! Not that I was trying to necessarily change things, just wanted to insure the patients health was not in jeopardy. Whenever I asked a question, I was met with criticism. Was fired for no clear reason along with someone else.
bad communication. senior employees treat new people like dirt.
