I worked there for a good while, it was ok place to work at when I first worked there but the management over that dept at the time we're Joyce Shrader and Mac McClanahan, the whole time I worked there I seen them treat their best workers like they were trash including me. Alot of their workers including me have left from down their due how we were treated over the years. I know when I got hurt on the job I was out of work for 6 months due to a serious knee injury and while I was following doctors orders Mac McClanahan threatened to fire me because he want me back 2 months after having knee surgery but my doctor said I wouldn't be able to come back to work in 6 months. Long story short after I returned to work I was treated like crap because I was off work for 6 months. If I had to do over again I would've never worked in that dept.

Working in a hospital laundry is hard work and anyone interested in this job needs to realize it's not a piece of cake. There is a staggering amount of laundry washed and dried every single day, and there's never a time when you can't look around and see many loads waiting to be washed. It's not like you get caught up and sit around waiting on something to do. You also have to remember, what you're washing is no where close to doing your own laundry at home. One minute you're handling tiny little baby gowns, and the next minute you're touching bloody surgical sheets. This job means a lot of walking and standing on your feet on a concrete floor all day long, in a very hot environment. It is hard on your back, your legs, knees, feet, etc. Even the most dedicated of employees just physically wear out from this type of work over time.

Totally agree. Hospital work is hard no matter what service dept. one works in. It's easy for people to tell one to stop complaining if one has never worked there.

Here it goes again!!! Why are people picking on PCH employees? The majority of them are super hard working people. Some of the ones who are no longer there were hard working people too. many of them friends.

Tommy Walthall organize the laundry at the hospital, probably about 40 years ago. Before that he worked as a route man for the old Majestic Laundry, same place my father worked and that's where I got to know him. Mary Eades owned the laundry. Al Turner was her brother and he also worked at the laundry as the man who kept everything running. Mr. Turner also owned the old Dinner Bell restaurant on North Walker Street into the 1950s.

I was born in the old hospital that was located at the corner of Main and Mercer Streets.

Why can't the hospital get that shelled out space utilized? Total waste of $$ to provide power to it. Thought the VA would have gotten it by now.
