Student Nurse (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 20, 2016
As a student nurse I cannot speak to the compensation or job security. I experienced positivity and support from my preceptor and all of the nurses on the unit. The nurse educators who set up my preceptorship would check in with me to make sure everything was working out well.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – June 7, 2016
Absolutely a great place to work if you have a desire to provide high quality pt care. Everyone below management understands the importance of team work and proper training.. They are more than willing to help you become a better care provider. That said, you are held to a high standard once they believe you can meet it.
I enjoyed working with the ladies and I had a tremendous boss and manager. I hated having to quit at the time as I had a bowel resection.
Tom Kent, Manager Medical Records (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK 99508 – April 9, 2016
I give it thumbs up and would work there anytime if I still lived in Alaska, probably would seek a clerical job as I no longer want to do transcription even though I enjoyed it at the time. Can be stressful if doctors are difficult to understand and work must be accurate due to importance of the reports.
Salary and benefits were good including bonuses for work done well and on time.
Traveling to the hospital in the winter on bad roads, especially if working nights.
PCA/Nurse Aid (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 10, 2015
I don't missed the weather in Alaska but i do missed the all people in ARH specially in the PCU and Pre-OP. ARH is not the biggest hospital in Alaska but is the best and better hospital in Alaska. If i ever go back to Alaska i would rather be working at the ARH. Not only the benefit's are good but everyone treated me like a family.They have the best Orthopedic doctor,Heart doctor,Anesthesia doctors and Endoscopy doctors.
Treated everyone in the same level, full of positive people, good heart and is fun to work with.
CT Technologist (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 18, 2015
There isn't enough room on the page to write about all the different situations that happened to me while an employee. I surrendered my badge to Human Resources after 11 months. The supervisor is crude, and obnoxious and comes and goes as she pleases, and co-workers on the day shift are a mix of individuals with psychotic personalities. Be prepared for bullying with little support from management to correct the problem. Management falls short on a lot of levels. The hospital projects a persona of being a great medical facility and it is not. It is just mediocre at best. EPIC electronic medical record is a total nightmare.
Patient Access Registrar (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – August 12, 2015
This hospital is an amazing place to work. Your not just apart of a company when working here. You are apart of a family. The hardest thing about the job is working with a lot of different people and job titles. I love meeting all kinds of people and their stories.
discount lunch, great staff, good benifits
short lunch breaks, crowed space, not enough waiting area
High quality care, an efficent work enviroment,excellent medical benefits

Sterile Processing Tech (Current Employee) – Anchorage, AK – February 25, 2015
Once a great place to work, now it is a miserable place to work since IMS has taken over sterile processing dept. Low morale, micromanaged, relies on informants to report back any thing done or said on the floor. Understaffed, over worked. No breaks.
Emergency Room Technician, Orthopedic Technician (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 11, 2014
ARH is the smallest of the major hospitals in Anchorage, and as a result it is the most personalized for patients. The hospital is staffed by the best nurses in the world and the hospital is full of great personalities. It is where I go for treatment in AK and where I would be applying for jobs if I were in AK.
File Clerk/Secretary (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 12, 2014
I worked here 10 years ago so this is a little old. Since I worked there it has also gone from a public hospital to a private hospital so things may have changed, but while I worked there they had excellent benefits and the work environment was very good.
Certified Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – December 22, 2013
I would still be there had the Army Corps of Engineers not transferred my husband to Hawaii. You will not find a better place to work- Caring, Compassionate, friendly, kind employees and Docs. They treat everyone great, and no favoritism. I miss it.
