I have been working at MCMC (Miners Colfax Medical Center) full-time (More than 10 years)
Challenging healthcare facility that provides acute care, long term care, clinic, and outreach. Stable working environment with numerous qualified and experienced staff members. Part of the State of New Mexico with great PERA, benefits, and good paid time off.
The State of New Mexico is currently in a bad financial status and has not given the State employees raises for several years. The wages are not competitive with the job market for almost every working class and even when you are qualified or have accomplished some noteworthy goal, you are not rewarded. Agency management does not have much of a voice in decisions.
Advice to Management
The agency must find a way to become more independent within the State system and control its own destiny. It is important to become profitable and then be able to make decisions for the staff starting from the lower end staff and through the top management.
