striving to achieve big hospital services and small-town familiarity
Associate Manager (Current Employee) – Owosso, MI – April 8, 2017
Over the past 12+ years of working there, I've seen positive changes in morale and employee pride, as well as quality of care. This is an independent community hospital that wants the best of both worlds--big hospital quality and services, and small-town familiarity--and is achieving it in greater and greater measure.
Employees are friendly to each other and to consumers, and take pride in relationships with patients and families. Management is friendly and approachable.
The hardest part of the job is that it's healthcare--and of course comes with all the struggles common to every healthcare facility: staffing, budget, insurance issues, etc.
The best part of the job is the people. Most everyone really cares about their job, their patients, and the hospital in general.
Like any place, it's not perfect. But it's pretty darn good!
Friendly work environment, approachable management
Continuing to fight ancient negative community perceptions--gets discouraging at times
