Dan Wilson, Supervisor (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – November 13, 2017
This hospital is a teaching hospital with a trauma center in full use. You can see just about anything every different night you work. The staff are very polite and helpful and work well as a team and I would recommend my family and friends to be taken cared of at this hospital.
Thank you for your feedback! At Abrazo West, we look to provide successful careers for all employees.
Job Work/Life Balance
Horrible place to work
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – December 9, 2017
Run, don't walk! Poor management, ICU director cut throat, sexist and unprofessional. Coworkers are clicky, if you don't fit in you are doomed! Unfair assignments, new nurses orienting other nurses and placed in charge. Trauma surgeon is aggressive and unprofessional. Good luck on leaving with your license intact! Scary place to work!
Staff Nurse ICU 22 Bed Unit /Elective 6 Bed (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – August 28, 2017
Work demanding, assignments unfair. Staff to young and inexperienced. Poor axillary support. Poor computer support and system down to much. Extreme Level 1 Trauma with very few experienced Trauma nurses, as well as not enough trauma Doctors. Poor equipment maintenance. I enjoyed meeting the staff and the state of Arizona was great.
Charge Nurse/Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – May 31, 2017
Not a bad place for a new nurse to start their career but by no means would it be the last place that someone should finish their career at. The work environment is hostile as their are quite a few unhappy people here but I think that is just part of the nature of working in the operating room.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Goodyear, Arizona – April 5, 2017
Working at Abrazo was a professional environment with many responsibilities, however, Human Resources and the Executive team were always making sure their employees, customers, visitors, and guests were satisfied. They often had days for employees (RN Day, Human Resources Day, Med Staff Day, etc.) to involve and encourage employees to do well. All were treated with respect and taken into consideration.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – December 15, 2016
Offers a good learning experience but as the hospital grows, it fails to educate it's current staff who are used to patients of lower severity illnesses. Career wise, start here but don't stay. Poorly run hospital with questionable leadership from the top down. My coworkers would rather just collect a paycheck than advance their department. Little ambition and excitement regarding their profession is toxic. Little evidence-based practice utilized here. I wouldn't advise a loved one to seek treatment here.
Flexible schedules, high PRN rates, smaller departments
Poor management, poor staff communication, limited resources, low standards, lacking respect between staff of different departments
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – September 24, 2016
was hired on after working for a traveling agency, was exciting to learn all the things that was taught on textbook on a hands on experience. changes within the management started to be more frequent as well as new coworkers being hired with problems arising and no follow through from management to correct
Respiratory Care Practitioner (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – June 18, 2016
Very caddy staff members in the Respiratory depratment. Gossiping, racial, sexist comments made among staff members. Very uncomfortable environment. They had clicks so if you were not part of the click, you did not fit in. Be careful with management, all favoritism when it comes to policies. Nothing kept personal, HR shares your business with other staff. Very horribly run hospital. Go the other way.
Staffing issues, some work hard, others sit around.
Hardworking, punctual, teamworker, multilingual, computer hardware and software repair, great sense of humor
Nursing Student Clinical Rotation (Former Employee) – Mesa, AZ – May 11, 2016
The best patient care starts with professional communication with coworkers, physicians, CNAs, and other healthcare workers in order to provide the best care possible for the patient-center care. Some times, the hardest part of the job is delegating the tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job is to see the patient being satisfied.
RN (Former Employee) – Goodyear, AZ – November 15, 2015
Figured why this place of employment has a revolving door. Too bad, because I worked with such a great team of coworkers! Management is the issue here, and the reason they are losing so many great nurses.
