What I like

Good managers and coworkers, support from ICU staff

Upper management just wants to make money. Don’t care about patients or employees.

Help the nurses, they make the place run! You can’t have a hospital without the feet in the rooms

EmployeeWorked at Northwestern Medical Center, Inc. in Saint Albans, VT at the time of review.

What I like

We work together very well as a team. it can be a very stressful environment sometimes, but we all come together in a time of need and do what we have to do. We all usually get along very well and have a lot of support from our management.

What I dislike

We need to be paid better. I don't make enough money to live, and I'm a dedicated and loyal worker.

Suggestions for improvement

Being in a better place financially. We're in massive debt and at risk of going out of business. While we need to be paid better, the hospital also needs to get it together,

EmployeeWorked at Northwestern Medical Center, Inc. in Saint Albans, VT at the time of review.

What I like

We all work together very well. We all provide patient care in an emergency setting and crap hits the fan and we do really well together. It's my favorite part of the job.

What I dislike

We are financially in the hole. We are close to going bankrupt. We need to get our financial issues solved so we can remain a rural community hospital

Suggestions for improvement

Improving our financial situation, but also thinking of the employees and being able to pay them well. People don't want to stay when the pay isn't good, and the cost of living is high.
