Appalachian Regional Healthcare: What's it like to work here?

No logo available

ARH is a great place to work in southeastern Kentucky. There are not a lot of options that don’t include a long drive.

What I like

When tragedy strikes this team sticks together. Whether it’s an illness or a personal tragedy, co workers will, for the most part, go out of there way to help, either by covering shifts, donating money, or whatever may be needed.

What I dislike

The Union, it separates and divides. It keeps licensed educated employees from making the money that they should be making because they are included in a union with non licensed, non trained workers.

Suggestions for improvement

Get rid of the Union, offer more financial incentives for employees, like bonuses, more than$20, for picking up extra shifts.

Company Culture

I work with a great group of people, for the most part, there is the occasional bad egg, but we all tend to pull together to get a job done.. I do, however, think that ARH as a whole would greatly benefit from ridding itself of the Unions, because of the Union there is such a distance placed between administration and staff, not as bad as it once was but it’s still there. The union from what I’ve seen the past few years, has done nothing beneficial for the employees at ARH.

Career Development

There are very few of these and they tend to go to people who are “close” with management.

Challenging Work

I work in an ER, so some days are more challenging than others, and staffing isn’t always the best.
