It's great to be a part of an organization that is forward-thinking and always working toward a new standard of clinical excellence. AGH provides not only for its patients, but for its associates and the community as well!

"I have been with Atlantic General Health System four years and, just like anyone, I have had stressful days -- days we hear about a patient's death, or illness -- and it can be very trying. With those days come great ones. AGHS is a fun, positive, and friendly place to work. We are a family, friends, support system, and so much more. Management listens, coworkers work as a team, and once you know someone here, you always smile and wave when you see them in the office or in passing. I wouldn't want to be part of another system!"

--Kristina Schwartz, Medical Office Assistant


"I can say I love working in this small hospital with big healthcare and small town charm. I loved it so much, this is my second time around.

March 1999, I moved from Pennsylvania and worked in the Physicians Billing office. After 3 ½ years I decided to grow my love of the area and went to work for a private doctor. He decided to change things in his practice, and I went to work at PRMC. When ICD 10 was coming into play, I decided I wanted to start winding down in my career and returned to Atlantic General Hospital. I have been back 9 years now, and I know I still feel at home and will finish my career here. There is charm working in a smaller hospital -- you become family, and I wouldn’t want it any other way. The support and motivation you receive from this hospital is amazing. They are truly a wonderful group of not just coworkers; they have become family."

A Letter from Claire

May 23, 2018

To my AGH Family:

Every morning we wake up, brush our teeth, drink our coffee, and sometimes grumble about going to work. We kiss our important people, pet our pets and off we go.

Then in an instance, everything we cherished, all we worked for is gone. Why? There is no answer. How? An unthinkable reason - electrical fire. Can we make it through? I don’t know. Belief in God? Yes, Strongly!

The outpouring of love from my AGH family is unfathomable. The bake sale, the collections, my dearest of dear radiology co-workers, the doctors, and that’s just the beginning. So many people whose name I know and so many that I only know your face…..the kisses and hugs, the I'm sorrys, the how can I helps?

Thank you doesn’t cover what my heart feels. The only way I can put it into words is to say…..

When you see my scrubs, they come from you.

My shoes, they come from you.

Needed material things, they come from you.

And eventually my new home, will come from you.

The only way I can show your gratitude is to carry your kindness with me by speaking more gently, caring more earnestly, providing warmth more readily……this my friends, is what I can do.

Coming to work now, eases the anguish I feel. This will slowly get better and it gives me hope that all will be well. So when our eyes meet in the hallways, know deep, deep down in your heart that I am thankful. On bended knees I will pray for all of you as you have for me.

My family here at AGH is forged in my heart my heart forever. With gratitude that cannot be expressed.

(Mike and) Claire Pawlikowski, RN
