Just a wonderful place to work that values its employees, their development and interprofessional teamwork

EmployeeWorked at Catholic Health Initiatives - Iowa, Corp. in Des Moines, IA at the time of review.

What I like

They have so many continuing education opportunities in order to continue my professional growth. This is a teaching hospital which opens up everyone to be helpful and supportive. Really helps their employees feel supported and like they want them to be the best possible version of themself

What I dislike

Just could improve the facilities with renovations/improvements/up-to-date equipment.

Suggestions for improvement

Once agin, just renovations and becoming up to date with equipment. The health care field is constantly making advances and sometimes CHI does not advance with the. The care absolutely advances and incorporates research, however no always does the equipment.
