Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • I feel as thought the hospital should provide incentive by offering a decent yearly raise for employees who stay. Turn over is high because people leave for better pay. Keep good employees by paying them for doing a good job.

What I like about the company

My bosses have always gone above and beyond to make sure I’m well and that my family is doing well

What I dislike about the company

Need across the board pay raises

Suggestions for improvement

  • Nurses that actually work on the floor need ro give input and help make decisions with the higher ups, such as choosing for ER to not call report to the floors, etc. Nurses out on the floor have more firsthand experience with how dynamics really flow, not executives.

What I like about the company

The company does provide good health benefits.

What I dislike about the company

The company should find better ways to retain nurses and treat the nurses who have stayes longterm with the company better.

  • Annual raises that are well deserved. Daycare facility is well needed as well

What I like about the company

We all have become family. We work well together and work through any problems that arise as a group

What I dislike about the company

Definately feel like employees deserve a well compisated cost of living raise. While the employees are grateful for the benefits provided our rate of pay couldincrease according to the cost of living in this area. It is difficult to raise a family on stagnant pay. Hopefully in the near future this will change

Suggestions for improvement

  • Cleaner buildings. Better training. Sick time for children.

What I like about the company

Large employer with good opportunities to move around positions. The benefits are good.

What I dislike about the company

Upper management doesn’t see the big picture sometimes. More staff would pay off/pay for themselves. They are out of touch with what’s going on in day to day operations. Buildings need revamping.
