Great place to work!
Medical Transcriptionist/Editor & Coder (Current Employee), North Conway, NHMarch 10, 2015
Pros: reduced lunch prices (good food), great pto, very nice, small hospital.
Cons: salary isn't fantastic; insurance is cumbersome to deal with.
The department that I work in is great to work in. (health information services) I have an awesome supervisor who is compassionate, gives great feedback, willing to work with any issues that arise & knows how to get things done - she's amazing! My coworkers are wonderful! There's no holding back information if you have questions. Everyone helps one another. They're just GREAT PEOPLE and it truly is teamwork at it's best.

A typical day for me is editing documents for 4 hours and then moving to coding radiology & outpatient labs. I sit at a desk in front of a computer every day. If I have questions about anything, there is always someone to go to for answers and you're encouraged to ask for help in understanding. There are 2 breaks of 15 minutes but they're not strict about it. Lunch is half hour long & you punch out/in. Overtime is not in abundance in my department, but in others there is. The hardest part for me is sitting for 8 hours. The most enjoyable part is the people I work with.

I've learned a great deal here and still learn something new every day! They paid for part of my education in coding & offer classes to benefit nurses & others for continuing education. Depending on the department you work in the management is either fantastic, or needs a great deal of improvement; however, overall management is pretty good.

It's a small hospital, only 22 beds and is a bit politic, but what business isn't? It's difficult to create change for the employees, but the administrative offices do what they can. (sometimes not enough, especially with salary increases). We had fabulous – more... benefits until we allied with MaineHealth, but I guess it's a bit of give and take. Still, your first year working you can earn up to 21 days off (at least that's what it was when I started), and that PTO rolls over into the next year!!! You can build your time off up to 200 hours in the first 5 years. They offer life insurance (equal to a year's pay) without cost. The new insurance isn't as good as it was when I started, but it is what it is. There is at STRICT no smoking policy - you'll pay double the amount for your insurance if you smoke, so quit 3 weeks before getting hired if you do smoke; they WILL test you, & test every year around June.

We are now a part of MaineHealth, and I find that maneuvering through the insurance carrier Anthem is a bit difficult and more complicated than it should be and the cost is much more than it was when I was first hired, but MaineHealth is the top provider in New England. You have to go to Boston for better; & who knows if it's better???

All in all, it's a great little hospital with good people and we care for our patient's & coworkers. Great family practice doctors, great surgeons (general, orthopedics, ophthalmic), 2 great hospitalists, ED physicians, nurses, PA's, NP's, MA's, and all the people who are a part of making the hospital run, from the top head honchos to the housekeepers (who work their tails off & do a great job) to the maintenance people and of course, medical records. They care about the happiness of their patient's as well as their employees.

If you like the mountains, a small town with lots of snow and skiing (5 mountains to choose from within 30 minutes), hiking, no sales tax (but big property tax), and friendly people this area is the place to be. – less

Smaller community acute care hospital
Staff RN (Former Employee), CAFebruary 27, 2015
Pros: great people & community!
Cons: staffing issues...frequent shortages...lean ancillary support
SNMH is a family. The nursing and other staff are good, caring people! Typical days are fast paced and the surgery schedule can change at the drop of a hat! We were a really great team and worked well together. Our Manager in Surgery was relatively new but getting off to a good start and is well liked. Upper level management relations with staff are generally strained and can even feel, unfortunately, adversarial at times. The hardest part of the job is doing more with less help while trying to meet productivity expectations. The best part of the job is the people I worked with. We had open and collborative interactions....and we always laughed and had fun...our patients too!

Exciting environment always with a new challenge
LPTA (Former Employee), Tampa, FLFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: small dept. so we were able to "form" our approaches to our pt's more easily
Cons: very busy some days and difficult to get to everyone on time.
I was in charge of the Out-Patient Clinic in our P.T. dept.and I really enjoyed that challenge. I also treated Pt's in house on the floors. There were only 3 of us in the Dept. and we got along great ! Hardest was dealing with Pt's who could not progress and most enjoyable was when the Pt's progressed enough to go home.

It was a laid back hospital but it was very busy. I admitted all patients coming into the hospital and done all there paperwork. I printed off paperwork for House Supervisor and the Nurse Manager. The hardest part of the job was to have to go to all the CAT and code calls. I enjoyed working with all the staff in the hospital.
