Obviously you dont work there. I am a nurse that has been there for 5 years. Admin. is fine. It is very hard to get a day position there because we all stay. The turn over is usually nights due to nurses having families and shifting to day positions whereever they are able to find one.(Home health, clinics, etc...)
Go to the job postings. Those are hardly all night positions that are open. Several day jobs and what about hospice and home health. Why so many openings? You obviously don't know what you are talking about. Lots of jobs available at OMC because its not that great of a place to work. There is no reason why in a town this size, so remote that there would be so many open positions, other than bad management.

Janet,,this is the OMC. Employment 'recruiter' that posted this BS! The younger nurses are there because their families are here, or close, and they're just starting out. The older nurses are here because no other hospital would employee their incompetent,lazy,as$es. I heard OMC referred to on the radio as "our community referral facility". That was from an add from OMC, SOOOO they admit they're not capable of handling much, they just send them on to a qualified HOSPITAL in another town
Go to Medicare.gov and check out their impartial ratings of every hospital in the nation. OMC rates higher than Baxter, Cox and St. Johns in their care of patients. They rate low in customer satisfaction...go figure.

Those hospital ratings can be manipulated by hospital personnel. The customer satisfaction ratings cannot.

An outside company sends and receives customer satisfaction surveys. No hospital employee involved with the data

I have worked at omc since 1980.I'm proud of the place I work and the care I give to patients.I have always tried to treat my pts as if they were my family.Yes there are some mistakes as there are everywhere we are human.I guess some of you think you are perfect.I have been to several hospitals memphis, springfield,colorado, arkansas. Our hosp. is clean the workers are friendly,and we are so fortunate to have some of the best Drs. and nurses working there.If you don't like omc I encourage you to go somewhere else, the care might be better or it could be worse!!!!!!!!!!

The nurses there are so sweet. They took excellent care of my grandma when she broke her hip.

Let's go ahead and get the name calling & demeaning remarks out of the way here. So here I go..." Family Guy, you are an A**hole and a F**king Idiot. OMC is a great place to work packed full of highly trained, caring and compassionate professionals." There, I said it! Now here is my opinion (only my opinion). OMC as a whole organization is "probably" a decent place to work or receive services. However, Tammy Boak, Human Resources is about as useless as tits on a boar hog. Although her voicemail says she returns messages, she nor anyone else at OMC has ever returned a single p/c when I put in employment applications there. BHC is also a f**king joke as weel. As a highly qualified mental health/behavioral health professional. I am consistently discriminated against being a middled aged guy. I rarely rant like this but after over two years of dreaming to work at OMC...I think I now have a good prospective of how OMC works.

How about there "no smoking" policy? You can't even smoke in the parking lot. and if you are sitting in your car some big fat ass will come over and tell you that the windows must be rolled up!! A bunch of fat unhealthy people walking around telling others not to smoke!. What a joke...

Soooo true!! Then to add insult to injury they can host their big money making drinking party bluejean bash things, but heaven forbid you "light up". Drink yourself into oblivion as long as you donate. Drive on home as long as you donate. But if you smoke you are a true piece of white trash! Kind of a double standard if you ask me.

Trust me, you do NOT want to work at OMC. Administration is CLUELESS. They can't figure out why there are so many open positions, (especially nursing). If they made it a better place to work, in a small town like this, there would be competition to even get a job working there.

It is a well-known fact that the majority of the graduating nursing students have the attitude that "I will only work at OMC if I can't get a job ANYWHERE else!" It is only a stepping stone to get experience and then move on. Doing clinicals in other facilities, you see how much happier the nurses are and say they are respected by supervisors (unlike OMC)

We recently tried OMC again after not using the hospital for many years. It hasn't really changed. The nurses are nice but it always seemed so short staffed. Don't use Riverways, they are clueless. Always late because they have meetings. We will go back to Springfield and Missouri Home Care.

A member of our family had open heart surgery at OMC over a year ago. Treatment was outstanding; surgeon was highly skilled, very attentive and followed through with him even after discharge (never happens in bigger cities). The nursing staff in ICU was top notch. He only spent one day in the step down unit and his only complaint was that his room was cold. (December). And he didn't like the food (but he was on a very restrictive diet and complained after he got home, too). We consider ourselves fortunate to have a facility like OMC so close to home. God's blessings to the wonderful people who work there and a very Merry Christmas.

Just be ready for thier local reputation. Lots of people avoid the hospital like the plague, but the billing is a nightmare. You pay your bill and them months later you end up in a collection agency because something came back from your insurance or medicare and they never sent you a bill for it.(in my opinion)The people who send out the bills or are responsible for making sure the bills get sent are irresponsible. OMC need to get thier SH!t together. This would help thier PR campaign tremendously.

OMC going green?????What a joke. The nurses use to bring the bandages and supplies with them. Now a box of gauze or even a roll of tape is delivered by UPS weekly. In a big box with all kinds of packing. "To save money" is what we were told. Going Green?????Not likely.

I agree , OMC is a horrible Hospital to be a Patient in and in most cases OMC will send you to a Springfield Hospital or to Mountain Home or even St. Louis because they have no doctors that can handle much more than a sniffle safely and that is the truth. I know more than 20 people who were sent to other Hospitals because OMC simply could not help them. I myself was sent to Cox South in Springfield to get a shoulder replacement Surgery because my family doctor did not believe any surgeon in OMC could do the job . My Father also died back in 2004 after receiving treatment form heart surgeons at OMC , he was told he was gaining water fluid after returning home from surgery and he died three days later from what turned out to be a torn aorta and he was actually bleeding to death internally and that in a nutshell is OMC Doctors at their best.

There is much wrong with this hospital, and it is not on the surface for the public to see.
