I love working at this hospital but it does have its challenges. The best part about working here is the sense of camaraderie and community you get from your coworkers and patients. The cons of working here is good work often goes underappreciated and upper administration makes decisions without truly understanding the impact to their employees. The campus is huge, yet there is no daycare, gym, and very little food to be bought on campus even though our lunch is only 30 minutes. The bureaucracy is stifling.
Western State Mental Health Hospital is a good place for mental health patients. The programs in place focuses on giving patients what they need to better their mental state so they can be a part of our communities. They really Care!
