None. Just wished I wasn't laid off. love that hospital.
Although the facility is small compared to its competition in the city their patient care is top notch. From their emergency room care to their state of the art MRI department Chestnut Hill Hospital is certainly one of the best hospitals not only in the community but in the city of Phila as well.
None (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 7, 2015
Chestnut Hill hospital is a difficult place to work. They are very short staffed so, there isn't enough staff to complete tasks. Everyone is running around like crazy people because no one can take care of basic business needs.
Cardiac Monitor Technician (Current Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 25, 2015
I monitor between 45-50 heart monitors and did patient care. I learned how to work front desk as a unit clerk. Was able to work with other floors beside the Cardiac Unit. The management are very pleasant. The co-workers became family. Team work was always being used. The hardest part was when a patient expired. The most enjoyable was the smile on the patient face after great care obtained from the nurses and nursing assistant.

Loved working for the company however the employees I was supervising were union and wanted to complain and protest every little thing other than work and I received no type of director assistance at all on different issues I was instructed to put in to play. To be laid off with know notice was the worst of all
High energy and a lovely place to work and gain experience
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 7, 2014
I work in Labor & Delivery department my job was to make sure my area was sanitized and clean so that the patient would feel comfortable and safe while delivering there newborn. The management there is excellent always allowing an open door policy which is wonderful if I have a problem with anything. My co-workers where easy to get along with .helping people and making a clean and safe environment for me was a enjoyable part of mu job.
pretty good compensation, co-workers become your friends, health care benefits are great.
I have worked agency and every staff member I worked with was friendly and professional. It is a small community hospital but cares for patients in a skilled professional manner. The pay is probably the lowest I have ever worked for they need to adjust that with current pay scales for RN's. Other than that it is a great place to work if your are a new RN or one whom is tired of the big center city fast paced environment, this is a refreshing change.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – June 25, 2014
Working evening shift can be hard, especially with a commute involved; nonetheless, the job was manageable as were the patient assignments. On average each aide was assigned seven to 10 patients, and was required to obtain vital signs, assist them with ADLs, collect specimens, etc. I learned a lot working at this job, especially since it was my first cooperative experience through Drexel University. This was essentially the foundation of building my nursing skills which only strengthened from clinical rotations and job experiences thereafter. The nursing staff was always friendly and helpful when it came to patient care which is one thing I really admired about this work environment.
Children's Hospital was a Temporary position which was good and very heartfelt position
Patient Service Representative (OB GYN) (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – July 18, 2014
A typical day at work would be greeting Patients and there families for there Cardiology visits. Collecting co-pays and scheduling any other appointments such stress test, CT scans. Management was good co-workers were team players. Everyone were just great. The hardest part of the job was to hear when the children would pass away from various heart diseases. That was very difficult for me because I have children and just can't imagine being without them. The most enjoyable part was seeing the children still smiling when they were dealing with so much and fighting to survive. They inspired me so much within my own life and I thank them for that
