Administrative Support (Current Employee) – Huntington, WV – October 12, 2016
I love my job. I have great benefits and staff to work with. There are tons of opportunities to advance. I have been there 8 years and moved around within the company to finally be in a full time position.
Friendly workplace. Good teamwork between nurses and techs. Between 15-25 patients seen each day ranging from neonatal to geriatric. Call shifts make for long work days. Many different procedures performed allowed for more knowledge to be gained. Seeing procedures from picc lines to priority one traumas keeps the job interesting.
First job - gained valuable experience dealing with the public / patients. Great team work and respect for co-workers. The hardest part of the job was narcotic delivery - no one seemed to want to take responsibility and check them in at the nursing stations
Working at Cabell Huntington Hospital is very interesting. You never know what is going to happen that day. Every day, a new life is brought into the world, which makes the day joyable. I worked as a housekeeper, which is an important part in keeping our community safe and free of hospital acquired infections.
Intern (Former Employee) – Huntington, WV – April 24, 2016
I have been an intern here for several months and the staff here is very smart and are great with people. I am very glad that I had the chance to come here and learn from the exercise physiologists that are here so that I will be able to go on and get my own job and excel at it.
I have been trained to have superior skilled patient care in the Labor and Delivery unit of the hospital. High risk patients are seen daily which provides additional experience in this area that might not be seen in other areas. The hardest part of the job is knowing that not all infants born will go to the safest environments at home after leaving our care. Although the most enjoyable thing about my job is being a part of such a miracle on a daily basis; the gift of life!
I have learned that it is better to involve family more in the care of the patients. My co-workers are always ready to help and we pitch in to help each other with admissions and with care when needed. The hardest part of my job is seeing those patient's last moments and feeling like you could do nothing to prevent it. On the flip side, is the rewarding part of seeing the sickest of the sick get well and leave the hospital.
VP of H R and Org Dev (Former Employee) – Huntington, WV – September 3, 2015
Center of Excellence. 2015 Top 100 Best places to work. I was very successful transforming the overall culture. Employees are now proud to be a part of this fast growing organization but there are significant trust issues within the organization in particular with new senior leaders and their management style. They don't take well to criticism for the sake oaf improvement in employee relations.
HR team was awarded in 2011 and 2015 Top Human Resource Team in the Country with a Stevie by the American Business Bureau.
The most difficult part of my job has always catered around dismissals. Knowing the profound impact this has on families who rely on the high income paid to staff who work for this organization.
As the lead on all organizational development activities I enjoyed the stand up mentoring and training of the high potentials within the organization.
