Co-worker were fun and helpful sometimes. But some managers hired real losers and we had to train them and be a "team" with them.
Reg/Sch (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – December 30, 2015
When Dean was a stand alone company, they did right by the employees and customers. When they let SSM buy them out. The Dean founder's would be ashamed of what and who they have become. Employees are of no importantance to the SSM system. Management is very poor, uncaring, lacking in true spirit of what was once Dean. I do NOT recommend this SSM Dean - St Mary's Company to anyone! Once run buy Nun's who were caring, now carry a metal rod to beat you down. Not kidding.
Great work environment, staff was very kind and willing to help me.
CMA Extern (Former Employee) – Wisconsin Dells, WI – January 16, 2015
Everyday would start with greeting and rooming patients. I learned very quickly that it really helped to review a patients chart before arrival so I could properly and efficiently set up the room to the needs of both the patient and the doctor. I learned about different types of procedures, how to give injections and even how to draw blood. Management was great and very helpful with anything I needed. My co-workers who mentored me were exceptional in training me how to work as a cma. The hardest part of the job was leaving because I really enjoyed it and I became really close with the staff and the patients. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to do the hands on stuff I learned like injections and vitals and I really enjoyed getting to know my patients and the people I worked with.
friendly staff, long lunch break, always something to do to help me learn
not getting to work there after my externship because they weren't hiring.
data quality analysis (Current Employee) – corporate office – October 16, 2013
The employes are very friendly and are true to the mission at Dean.. My time of 2 years taught me alot, however the main lesson was dealingwith politics and learning trust and truthfulness was not honored in management. All I can say is if it smells fishy... it is and the politics are in full force. If you decide to take a position make sure they have a game plan.
Medical Administrative (Current Employee) – Madison, WI – October 1, 2013
I have worked for Dean for almost a year. I enjoy being able to work with clinical staff as well having the chance to help out patients with their appointments and any other needs I might be able to help with.
Lab Assistant/Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Janesville, WI – August 1, 2013
A typical day at work is challenging but rewarding. I enjoy dealing with people and am good at making them smile and feel better when not feeling well in the hospital. The hardest part of the job is seeing people Pass.
good food that the girls bring into the lab
can be hectic at times, requiring patience while multitasking.
Clinical Manager (Former Employee) – Portage, WI – July 30, 2012
Travel from site to site to assist staff with day to day operational issues that came up. Hire, mentor, train staff. Assist the staff with training of new procedures, conduct staff meetings, implement performance improvement projects.
The hardest part of my job was having four clinic locations to travel too. This made it so that it was near impossible to be at a site more than once a week on average. This is difficult to manage staff and ensure that the clinic is being run efficiently.
The most enjoyable part of the job was the staff. They were all very receptive to me as a manager and the projects that we did to improve patient satisfaction and safety.
