- Our Lady of Lourdes Memorial Hospital, Inc.17.May 2020
Lourdes is one of Ascension Health's ministries, and the culture is almost unbelievable. Throughout the pandemic, they have done everything possible to help & support all of us.
Support from management
My supervisor/program manager is very helpful and supportive.
We are asked multiple times annually to give our ideas, opinions etc, and to work as a team.
Freedom to work independently
Our CEO has empowered as many associates as possible to work from home and then she has thanked us almost daily for the work that we do.
There are many women employed by Lourdes. There are women in all areas of the hospital/business.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Employees are awarded for years of service, and there are quite a lot of people that have been at Lourdes for 40, 50+ years.
I have just been certified as a global educator in women's breast health. Also this is the 4th position I have held at Lourdes in my 17 years there.
Overall compensation for your work
I'm paid NYS wages due to the grant, as well as a cell phone stipend monthly and I am reimbursed for my mileage.
Office / Work Environment
Definitely in other positions I have held when I worked on site at the hospital. I now work from home.
Lourdes won an award for the recycling program they have put in place - out of all of the Ascension ministries, we do the very best job with recycling.
There are all sorts of programs/support services to help us keep the work/life balance.
They are benevolent and supportive no matter what the situation.
Doesn't everyone these days?
There are committees that support safety at work.
I am an outreach coordinator for mobile mamography, and being a people person like me, my job is not difficult. I have no problem getting women to have a mammogrqm. The challenge until 5/11 was not being able to do my job due to the quarantine. The van I work with is back on the road now, so now we just have to do our job carefully.
Inclusive / Diverse
We even have a diversity fair each year. Lourdes has always valued diversity.
Suggestions for improvement
- None that I can think of at this time. The COVID-19 crisis has shown me the true colors of Lourdes Ascension. They are simply amazing. I'm very thankful to be employed there.
What I like about the company
My 17 year career at Lourdes has been great. I've been in radiology the entire time, but in different facets of that department. This has allowed me to learn so many skills. I am well liked and respected due to the opportunities I have seized while working there.
What I dislike about the company
I honestly don't disapprove of anything these days.
