Transcribing doctors orders and entering them into computer. You learn how to cope with trauma situations. Deal with urgent care in the blink of an eye. Help reassure families of the patients about their care.
high paced and provides much needed acute care experience
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – March 30, 2017
Brandywine Hospital has offered me a diverse amount of experience and ways to improve my nursing skills. My coworkers are excellent to work with and there is a wide variety of patients. It has been a good starting point for me in acute care.

people work together and decent pay and they will compensate people for coming in for over time and the shift goes by fast decent size hospital and you get your mandatory 40 if they hire a person full time
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Coatesville, PA – March 13, 2017
Brandywine Hospital is far from perfect. However, there are some great doctors and nurses there and it's generally a supportive work environment. If your looking for a state of the art workplace or superb Staffing, look elsewhere. Remember it's a small hospital serving an often poor demographic with all that that brings. Overall, I enjoy working there and recommend it as long as you go in with open eyes and don't expect a big city hospital experience.

Don't believe the good reviews, I am sure they are manufactured. Let's start off by saying most if not all employees would not want to receive care in this hospital. It's absolutely filthy, high turnover, low pay, emergency room is ill equipped, Security guards are mostly children wearing uniforms, Behavioral health run by incompetents, med surg ok, horrible housekeeping is the worst.
Having a job
Filthy and poorly staffed with incompetent and unprofessional management
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Coatesville, PA – June 19, 2016
Staffing ratios aren't safe. Pay is not good. During weather emergency cafeteria closed and everyone did not eat even though we had to sleep there for 1+ days. I wouldn't send a dying dog to that place. Revolving door with staffing. Not a good place to work or be a patient
Very productive and fun atmoshere and good team players
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Coatesville, PA – December 18, 2015
I loved working at Brandywine Hospital. The administrative staff are wonderful and very helpful in any situation when it comes to their staff. They are willing to work with you with any accommodations you may need. The pay could have been better but they make up for it by teaching you things that enhance your scope of practice. They have many opportunities for career advancement as well.
career advancement opportunities, excellent working environment, well staffed, great team players
short breaks with long shifts, not very competitive pay offered
Sonographer (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – September 29, 2015
40 hours a week plus call and holidays. Very heavy on Vascular studies Work alone manage many things at once and work closely with the ER doctors, PA's and Nurse Practitioners Working an off shift is the hardest part. My co workers are the best part of my job as well as interacting with patients. This is a behavioral health facility.
Director of Pharmacy (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – September 27, 2015
The administration does not believe in compensating employees or staffing appropriately. The CNO, CFO and CEO make in excess of 95 per hour. This information was leaked out in an email by the hr department of how much each employee earns. Of course, no disciplinary action was taken against this employee. Over all a bad culture and poor medical care with sub par doctors.
Physical Therapist (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – September 25, 2015
It is a great place to work to see a variety of diagnosis, but some staff have been there a while and not progressive. The management is not into making clinic more progressive and does not provide any continuing education. Limited funds to get access for more updated equipment and slow for change to occur.
Great benefits and pay
Limited resources to perform job; no continuing education; no room for growth in profession
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Coatesville, PA – September 22, 2015
The staff and my co-workers were all great team players. Each person brought a bit of spark into the work place. I loved the fast pace of working in the ER and the Lab. The most enjoyable part of the day for me, was seeing my re-occurring patients. And knowing that they were well pleased with my work. I always look forward to seeing their smiling faces each week. Overall, Brandywine Hospital is a great place to work.
