Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Wenatchee, WA – March 1, 2016
Working at Central Washington Hospital has been an invaluable leaning experience. Servicing such a large area has allowed me to interact with a wide variety of patients and disease processes. All of this has allowed me to refine my skill as a Respiratory Therapist to provide better patient care.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Wenatchee, WA – June 17, 2012
Hospital is in debt. Management is getting rid of staff who do not see eye-to-eye with management. Not allowed to question changes. Getting rid of experienced personnel and replacing them with new graduates(this is nursing staff) to care for very sick patients. This process has has everyone upset including the hospitalists. Director of Care Managment is constantly making changes, wants the department to work as a team, but does not allow any input from any of her staff in re: to the changes. Throughout the hospital, morale is low, productivity and efficiency is down. There have been a large number of lay-offs over the past 6-months. If you are not a "yes person" then you either change or you go out the door.
free lucnes are extremely rare
staff members rarely get their breaks. they really have to work at arranging their breaks.
Former Worker (Former Employee) – Wenatchee, WA – May 22, 2014
The hours for part time workers are terrible. You don't make enough money for all the stuff you put up with. Management has changed in the past few years and has gotten very bad. The management is sexist and prefers male workers over females. Actually harasses and tries to intimidate female workers. The workers there are not friendly to each other. There is a lot of gossiping and talking behind each other's backs. There are bullying problems that the management ignores. The job itself is not a bad one. The duties are fairly normal and the customers are alright.
