productive place to work, not much of an opportunity for advancement
Client Service Representative (Former Employee) – Farmington Hills, MI – July 26, 2017
Worked there for 8 years, okay place to work, not much of an opportunity for advancement. The hospital was brought out by Beaumont Health Systems, however, to me that was done in secretly! We were told that we were just integrating, however, Beaumont came in and slowly but surely everthing that symbolized that Botsford Hospital ever existed went away...all Beaumont now!
Botsford Hospital was a very busy Hospital to work in.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Farmington, MI – August 1, 2017
I worked in the Emergency Room and I assisted the Nurses and Doctors with various duties, filing, wiping down the beds, replacing medical supplies, talking with patients and getting them pillows and water if they asked for them. I learnd that the doctors and nurses were working under very stressful conditions in the Emergency Room. The workplace culture was very diverse. The hardest part of the job was knowing that some of the patients were in a lot of pain and some of them did not have a support system. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping the patients.

My time while employed at Botsford was wonderful. I would send every Nurse Assistant their for all of their training. This place is a wonderful place to ground and root yourself if you plan to move forward in the medical field.

Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Farmington, MI – May 3, 2017
I began as a nurse techniciam at Botsford in my last year of nursing school. Botsford assisted with my last year of tuition and welcomed me with open arms into their OB/Pediatric unit as a graduate nurse. I worked in this department for a few years learning an enormous amount about the specialty but also was struck with awe at the amount of empathy these nurses put into each day at work. I transitioned to a Short Stay unit, which ultimately became a Progressive Care unit. I learned that I had a new passion for cardiology related illnesses. It was on this floor that I learned how to prioritize and organize my day. It was my PCU family that helped me make this accomplishment. I transitioned to CCU and was able to focus in more depth on the physiology of illnesses. I tremendously enjoyed the autonomy this position lent me. The nurses in this department where tremendous caregivers and educators, not only to family members and patients but also to me! I was at Botsford Hospital for 15 years and enjoyed the sense of pride each employee had working there. The term Community Hospital is all encompassing as it really was a community environment.

Bots ford is A good hospital I like it; management team could be A little better, everything else was wonderful. My co-workers were great, always working together to get the work done. There was nothing hard about the job honestly. The part I enjoyed the most were the customers I love dealing with all kinds of people.
Former member (Former Employee) – Royal Oak, MI – May 4, 2016
I was an employee of 20 here I was treated very poorly by management I was lied to by directors I was disliked for absolutely no reason maybe the color of my skin this hospital is very racist and stick with their own the pay was unfair for different cultures the benefits we're the same for everyone the employees were clicky and conniving and so was upper management this was not a good experience working for this company the last 6 years of my employment I've never seen the department ran so poorly as BRLReference Lab that department had the highest turnover rate in the hospital because of poor managers that let staff run the department do not work there keep looking.

Switchboard Operaator: Helping staff member, patients and familys
Communication Operator (Current Employee) – 8 Mile and Grand River Farmington Hills – April 2, 2016
Answering telephone helping Doctor change there pagers. Helping nurses finding out who is covering there floor. Talking to patients who need an outside line to call family. Talking to patients family member and direct them to either the ER, patients room, or to the nurses station. We have the best team ever and the best manager to. Team work! The hardest part of the job is when you get a call for a family member and they want to be transfered to the patients room and you see that there name is in red and you tell them that you are going to transfer them to the nurses station. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we all laugh at each other for silly comments.
