Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Manistee, MI – July 21, 2017
West Shore Medical Center is a wonderful place to work, with excellent therapist to work with, and a fun staff over all. Management is well organized and caring. The culture is fun but very professional. There is always a variety of patient care ranging from pediatric, to orthopedic, to neurological.
Clerk (Current Employee) – Manistee, MI 49660 – July 5, 2017
They are currently undergoing a change in ownership and there are changes in management. The benefits are good except there is no employee discount as there has been in years past. The pay depends on what kind of degree you have and where you work. Typically clerical jobs are paid less than other medical institutions. Skill degreed jobs are paid far better. As with most other medical facilities, there is a hospitalist company who provides physicians for inpatient care and emergency room care.
Small, easy to know patients
Management needs overhauling, need to listen to employees and their concerns
Co-workers are like family, in need of a good manager
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Manistee, MI – July 17, 2013
Being a smaller hospital, my co-workers are more like family. We not only depend on each other but help each other out wether at work or outside of work. We work along side of each other but also offer an ear if the need arises. In the 9 years I have been an employee of West Shore, I have been thru at least 6 different managers, not including the ones that are just filling in until a permanent one is found. The hospital seems to have a difficult time keeping a nurse manager for more than 2 years. Overall, I love what I do and feel I have blossomed as a person and as a nurse at West Shore. Being in a small town, my patients often recognize my family name and I think that helps them to feel more comfortable. Patients often states, "I feel better being in my home town hospital vs a larger one where your just a number."
Intern/Imaging Department-Management (Former Employee) – Manistee, MI – September 6, 2012
A typical day for me at West Shore Medical Center was attending meeting, working on physical year budget, write memos, review all policies and procedures, deal with staff issues, and interview other administration staff. I learned what it was like to be a manager in the Imaging Department. This included gained knowledge of CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, and Ultrasound; communication with staff; delegating jobs to certain staff members; and working with other managers. The co-workers were great, everyone was friendly and answered all questions I had for them. The hardest part of this job was not being able to work with patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting hands on experience as a manager.

this project was a very challanging but yet successful at the end, there was an off-shore team for this project so it gave me a good scence of diversity, the management was very cooperative as well as my co-workers all exhibited good team player skilss, the other side of the job was the time difference with our off shore team in india i needed to match up with the time so had to stay up late at times to communicate so as to have the channel following. the most enjoable part of the job was the successful completion of the project on time.
