What I like

I love how we all work as a team. I have worked there for 16yrs and my family & I have all been patients in this facility with excellent care received. The county hospital system continues to grow and provide essential services to the communities we serve. I have worked in several different hospitals across the country as a traveling tech. When I landed here, I haven't wanted to leave. The county strives to improve the services offered and continues to build updated, innovative facilities.

What I dislike

We aren't the highest paid facility in the area by far, but you won't find any more caring people.

Suggestions for improvement

I think the county is constantly making changes and striving to improve services for the staff and community as a whole. They are already working on this very well.

Company Culture

Although CoVid19 has caused stress levels to be higher, overall I work with some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. We make a great team.

What I like

I am very proud to work at Valley for 16yrs. I have trusted myself and my families health care needs to the to this organization and have always received quality, compassionate care. Each team of staff from doctors to transporters and everyone in between does an excellent job for our community.

What I dislike

Wish we had more competitive wages so we could retain our wonderful staff. We live in an area with such a high cost of living that folks with single income families feel the need to move on to higher paying jobs.

Suggestions for improvement

Increase salaries to match the average of the other local hospitals and Valley would become the clear choice for job seekers.

What I like

The people I work with have been pretty much easy going and helpful. There are a couple of workers that are difficult but those people dont make work miserable.

What I dislike

The difficulty of getting people who are not team players removed from the unit.

Suggestions for improvement

Increasing pay for everyone and getting us better employee discounts to places. The ones we have currently arent too great or arent competitive.

Company Culture

A lot of hurdle jumping to get things done but once you have the proof and evidence as to why you want something done they give their full support

Challenging Work

Dealing with paralyzed patient can be difficult at first but once you understand what they are going through it becomes easy.
