What It’s Like to Work Here

Newton Medical Center is a 103-hospital, with a comprehensive offering of services and specialties. As a progressive organization, we have the resources to meet medical needs of our patients, yet we are small enough for each individual employee to make a difference. Here is what some of our employees have to say about working here.

Materials is challenging but rewarding, and I’m glad I changed career paths years ago. NMC encourages me to grow and pushes me out of my comfort zone. Having a great team to work with side by side with as we do our part in protecting and defending our patients is a bonus.

Judy H
I feel like this is where God wants me to be — NMC is my home. I want people to feel welcome, which is why it’s so important to keep the hospital clean. It’s a good feeling walking into NMC and hearing patients and their families tell you how clean it is. It wouldn’t be possible without my coworkers. I couldn’t ask for a better place to work.

Julie H
I come to work for the mamas and babies. I love NMC’s maternal child unit because it’s labor and delivery, postpartum and a special care nursery, so I get to see patients through their entire stay. Newton is a small enough community that not only do patients remember me from one child to the next, but I remember them as well. I live 45 minutes away and keep coming back for more!
Julie H | Maternal Child Unit
