Pros: learning environment at wmc, family atmosphere at page
Cons: not enough staffing
While working for Valley Heatlh System, I worked at Winchester Medical Center and Page Memorial Hospital. Winchester Medical Center is a top 10 hospital in Virigina and its physicians, staff, and other personnel are the reason for this. They are very dedicated to their job and to taking care of the patients and the family. I enjoyed working at WMC because it was a good learning environment being a trauma center and a large hospital. At Page Memorial which is a critical access hospital only, it is a different environment. But an environment that I enjoyed immensely. The staff and physicians are like family there and they are very welcoming to new staff. While it is not a trauma center, they have a very busy ER dept that is very good at what they do. The staff of nursing and ancillary departments are exceptional people who do everything in their power to make the patient feel comfortable and get better as soon as possible. Both facilities with Valley Health System are excellent hospitals and both are great to work for.
