Best place to work

Community Hospital has been voted "Best Place to work in Monterey County" five times by the readers of Monterey County Weekly newspaper. Here's what some of our employees have to say:

"I love my patients and I love the people I work with, all of them."- Anwar Duensing, 2005 Nurse of the Year

"I really love my job, love taking care of people who need help, are sick, and can't do for themselves. It's our great honor to be able to help people in need."  - Stephanie Harr, 2007 Nurse of the Year   

Opportunities for advancement, new challenges

Community Hospital offers opportunities for employees who would like to transition from non-clinical jobs to medical careers, or from one area of specialization to another.

James Montgomery, Employee of the Year 2014Employee of the Year 2014

Congratulations to James for his selection as this year’s Employee of the Year. James has been an employee since April 2004. His director, Ken Gordon, said that James is clearly one of our organization’s exemplary employees that sets the standard for others in “Exceeding Expectations”.

James worked his way up through the Security Services department starting off as a Shuttle Driver up to his current role as a Security Officer. James is always working towards improving himself and asks others to critique him and find ways to do things better. It is because of this that James has clearly become one of the organization’s best employees and is appreciated by all.

James is respected by those who work with him as well as those who come to the hospital as volunteers, physicians, patients, and visitors. James does an incredible job at balancing customer service with his responsibility to provide a safe and secure environment for all. James is definitely a “can do” person and never says that it “isn’t my job”. James is clearly a great ambassador not only for the Security department but for all of Community Hospital!
