Registered Nurse - Cardiac Cath Lab/ IR / ER (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – December 2, 2017
Cenntenial Medical Center has a great staff and is a very nice facility but has seen work pace slow down over the last year or two. They have not been able to pull in and land a new group of physicians and surgeons to increase the workload and opportunities as of yet but they are trying to add more physicians and surgeons to hopefully increase the patient population and work flow. The wages at this point I’m not very competitive and you tend to not get paid for what you’re worth even if they really want to keep you.
Management for the most part is pretty good and willing to stand up for their nurses and staff. Like anywhere else some of the physicians have more weight and pull than others but overall when it comes down to it you’re manager will usually step in and take up for you if need be.
Centennial overall is a great place to work if you are a nurse that has been doing this for a long time you want to go somewhere to finish out your years and retire, it’s not a place for a new nurse looking to us increase their knowledge and learn a lot but if you need to get started somewhere that’s the place to do it .
ER Registrar (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 21, 2017
I enjoyed working there very much. My job was both interesting and challenging. Support of my management was second to none. Co-workers were both tea, players and could work on their own as needed. The work environment was pleasant and flowed. Patient care was the main focus and customer service was superb. I would highly recommend this a Great Place to work. I am Grateful for the time I was able to work there.
Sterile Product Support Technician (Current Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 14, 2017
Patients can now rate their pharmacy after submitting a prescription refill via a website and other online rating services that allow anyone to leave a review, Patient Verified Reviews are completed solely by actual patients of the pharmacy.
Busy days in the OR, but a fun crew to work with. Atmosphere was light when possible, but always patient-centric. In most cases, management was to talk to, and gave priority to the employee's concerns and suggestions.
the people there are great to work with,made lots of friends there,still keep in touch with one
Medical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – November 3, 2017
It was a good place to work,the people that i worked with were very nice,and very smart and helpful,good breakroom,great cafateria and the lab director was a great person. If i had my time to go over i would have never left working there.
By far the worst environment for a job Management are all puppets and treat employees unfairly for their benefit Equipment is always messed up High volume with no help, managers try to run shifts with as few employees as they can Senior staff are treated unfairly Notorious for hiring lazy employees (mainly because the reputation of the department deters future employees) No prn help for coverage and time off, they will leave you stranded and short staffed if someone calls out Terrible atmosphere, TONS of drama Absolutely NO room for advancement, NO cross training, they will not even consider it. Most employees are looking for other jobs, high rate of turn over Management plays favorites
Loved people at C ntennial. Great doctors, nurses. Good rapport with all disciplines.

PATIENT LINE COOK (Former Employee) – Frisco, TX – October 5, 2017
Days were very hectic but manageable. I enjoyed it as I was a line cook for the patients and it was very fast during breakfast and lunch, I had to be very careful about the dietary requirements for each patient. I made everything from scratch and I enjoyed that part a lot.
RN (Former Employee) – Immunosuppression – August 21, 2017
The patient ratios are better here than at other positions I have worked. My specific issue with the area where I worked is the excessive use of PPE. For immuno suppressed patients, the CDC states that using gowns, gloves, and masks for all interactions is not necessary or beneficial, however, this practice has been implemented by management trying to appease the layer of management above it.
Horrible management for the patient transport. The manager was clueless and did not use common sense. Everyone in the department is miserable. The place was fun and exciting until the manager made up new rules everyday. Overtime was always an option and then she changed that. Then when staff started quitting all of a sudden it was a misunderstanding.
A hospital with constant changing administration with very different expectations. High stress and demands on time, limiting quality care at times. Highly competitive. Not a lot of support from administrators.
Not a good place for a new grad. Mgmt at this for-profit hospital driven by the bottom line more than safety. Nursing assignments unmanageable, leading to only adequate rather than excellent care being given to patients.
