Depending on the department you are working in job tasks can vary. I worked at Shawnee Mission Medical Center two different times. The first time was right out of college and helped me jump start my career into medical insurance where I worked for several years. The next time I went to work there was after having my children so it was great part time job. Management definitely weighed on the fact if you were an Adventist.
I would room all my MD's pt's, triage all vitals and record in EMR. I also would triage all phone calls, schedule appt's, rf meds, obtain referrals as well assist my MD with all lab draws, injections and office procedures.
I was happy to work for SMMC because I agreed with their mission statement. I became dissatisfied when they seemed to be more interested in growing bigger and becoming "the Beacon to the community" than taking care of patients.
The first years there were great , but as time went on things changed.

Shawnee Mission was a great place to work,I truly enjoyed most all my 24 years there. Great caring employees, good managers, and they truly cared about the patients. But as time goes on things change and new management comes in, making new changes, cutting back to save money, less focus on what matters, which is patient care, and the dedication of long term employees.
Truly enjoyed my job, and all the friends, coworkers, and Doctors that made each day a terrific place to work .
Change is enviable, you can always be replaced by someone younger, and who will work for less pay.

Enjoyable working with new families--especially enjoyed dads. Provided primary care to moms and infants. Co-workers were great and always helpful. Hardest part of job was all the computer and paper work.

Shawnee Mission Medical Center is a great organization. I enjoyed engaging with patients, co-workers, physicians, and families. It was a very fast paced position with a great deal to learn. I've learned a great deal. There was a lack of leadership in the department I worked in. The employees were not supported in their roles.
