MHMC’s administrative staff plays a vital a role in saving lives, without having to take scalpel in hand. Our administration managers make sure that the hospital operates efficiently and provide adequate medical care to patients. Our responsibilities are numerous and sometimes require the assistance of the medical and support staff. We act as liaisons between governing boards, medical staff, and clinical department heads and integrate the activities of all departments so they function as a whole. readmore›
Our administrators recruit, hire, and sometimes train doctors, nurses, interns, and assistant administrators. Administrators plan budgets and set rates for health services. We plan departmental activities, evaluate doctors and other hospital employees, create and maintain policies, help develop procedures for medical treatments, quality assurance, patient services, and public relations activities such as active participation in fund-raising and community health planning. We work long or irregular hours. MHMC is open round the clock – 24/7 – and administrators may be called in at any hour to make decisions and resolve disputes. We attend staff meetings, participate in health planning councils, go to fund-raising events, and travel to professional association conventions. Our job is difficult and demanding. We always keep up with advances in medicine, computerized diagnostic and treatment equipment, data processing technology, government regulations, health insurance changes, and financing options. While doctors strive to keep the blood flowing and the heart beating, we are doing our job in keeping the hospital alive and healthy.
