CIO and Owner (Former Employee) – Craig, CO – October 6, 2015
Best company every created. With a fraction of the money from Microsoft or Apple this company would be 10 times the size. the owner is a teacher and a expert. the best place to work and care for your work life balance.
There are FAR to many politics, Telling employees how they need to act but Management DOES NOT act that way. No communication. They want Wyoming to come to support this hospital but they DO NOT support Wyoming Managers and Directors afraid to talk to administration or say anything bad to them. Yearly employee satisfaction surveys always come back to the employees to fix NEVER admin
Daily duties included medication administration, pt assessment and documentation. Interpersonal skills and communication skills are required. Management and staff were great and the Doctors were easy to work with. I enjoyed working the surgical unit very much. As a new nurse at the time I learned so much on so many different pt. diagnosis and how to care for the pts. needs accordingly. I highly recommend this facility for any new nurse.
I loved the staff and doctors here,but they had a lot of small things to work on to be more efficient. They would come up with great plans to problems and say they were going to implement them but after two weeks things would go back to the way they were. I love working on the Neuro and Ortho teams here, the nurses and doctors on these teams were so compassionate and fun to work with.
too many upper management and not enough people to help
Manager (Former Employee) – Casper, WY – January 19, 2015
Employees are great, but administration makes management bounce around initiatives never focusing on completing a task. Current administration is worthless and has crushed morale of the directors, managers, and employees. They have outsourced departments and have laid off personnel.
CNA then Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Casper, WY – June 29, 2014
ER and Surgical floor- Fast paced work, always moving, always something to do. Great learning experience. Twelve hour shifts, Cerner charting system is a paired-down version (economy), so it is difficult and dysfunctional in many ways. I learned so many things that I wouldn't have had the chance to learn if working in another department. No training was made available in the ER. Surgical floor training was marginal, and in some cases negligent. Heavy workloads, and high stress. Surgeons still treat nurses as inferiors, and don't work as a team. Many on staff are just trying to survive long enough to gain experience and get the heck out of Casper, which is an awful city by any standards. Management was terrible, and mostly feared. They say one thing and they do another. The wonderful manager who hired me quit soon after I started, and there was a huge loss in morale as the prevailing reason she left was because of the terrible upper management. Each potential new manager they tried to hire would suddenly reject the offer just days before beginning, and they couldn't fill that position for an entire year. Management seems to be protecting themselves and their jobs rather than fixing problems (which are often themselves). Focused more on money. CEO Vicke Diamond once stated at an in-service "we can only hope that there are more sick people during the upcoming months". At another meeting regarding budget cuts she dispelled a rumor that she made $700,000 a year, stating "I only make $625,00 a year, and $250,000 of that isn't awarded unless the hospital makes it's annual budget".more... I witnessed first-hand the driving-out of great employees for made-up or non-existent reasons. It seemed that if you were good, then you were a threat. If you showed them that they could or should be better, then you were kicked-out. Again and again I met people in the community who told similar stories of how they, friends, or family were treated terribly after performing so well on the job. Apparently the hospital has a decades long reputation for acting in this manner. They are in the middle of a budget crisis, and are cutting staff, and taking away benefits such as Paid Leave and Overtime. They are threatened by a newly opened Mountain View hospital on the other side of town, which was built by a group of physicians who were sick-and-tired of the management of WMC. Recently another hospital has broken ground, and this has caused WMC to commit even more of their budget to building competing facilities nearby. This will undoubtedly be paid for by the reductions in staff and benefits over the next decade. There is a definite lack of culture in the Casper region, and this is transferred into every aspect of the hospital despite the diamonds in the rough. Overall it was a great opportunity and experience for a new nurse. I learned a great deal of important and useful medical procedures and techniques. Anyone looking for work at WMC would be advised to take the time to talk to the staff and community, and be fully prepared for the possibility of mistreatment by the management.less

Chief Medical Officer/ VP of Medical Affaits (Current Employee) – Casper, WY – May 14, 2013
WMC is an unusual organization offering specialized services to a geographically large but sparsely populated referral area. Never the same thing twice, continuous learning environment. Management is friendly and no one is too cool to pitch in and help. Strong medical staff, great nursing care, strong commitment to patient first.
RN (Former Employee) – Casper Wyoming – February 21, 2013
I worked here for less than a year, and it was too long. Corrupt, from the top down, if you say something about it, you will be fired! Beware!! You will regret it! Even the lunches are too expensive, they charge you for the plates!
i love being around the patients and helping people i learn new and exciting things everyday about people, places and medical problems love my manager love my co workers the hardest part is trying to do 3 jobs in one when they fired some people so i automatically have to take over those jobs and im only one person and i dont feel like i am doing my job that i was hired for to the fullest because of all the extras and that upsets me, i want to make sure all the patients are being taken care of the way they need to be. love the patients
