Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 17, 2017
I loved going to work because it was busy and every day was different. DH made my days very interesting. Only reason I stopped working at DH was to take care of my new baby. I am planning on re-applying when I am ready to go back to work.
Admin/Billing (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – July 16, 2017
The management at DH are not only missing people skills but also lack the common knowledge to do their job. DH has allowed their management to create the culture of favoritism, unethical business, and a hostile work environment. The resources that DH provides for the community is amazing however due to poor management they have gone into debt with their high turn over rate in staff
I say it greatthe people are /good and cowork good
EVS Tech/floortech/batroom/house.keeping (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – June 21, 2017

Clinical Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – June 1, 2017
I would have liked the management staff to be more involved with their employees. when changes were made, Employees were not given accurate time to learn new requirements before being written up or given consequences.
Clerical Support Specialist IV (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 25, 2017
I was a shift-lead which was okay at first, but every day the rules were changing. This made it difficult because it caused to much confusion in the office.
The benefits are great as well as the pay.
Learning new rules everyday, explaining why everything was changing all the time, dress code always changing, medical staff was always complaining about the clerical staff, computers always shutting down.
CLERICAL & ED ASSISTANT (VOLUNTEER) (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – May 4, 2017
Typical day at work would consist of me working at one of the clinics feeling in for call in's, checking patients into their appointments, and helping them through paperwork. Then after about 2 hours would go down to the ER and assist patient and staff down there as needed.
I learned a lot, especially working in the trauma center. I learned how crazy things can get but also how easily the craziness could be handled if you worked together as a team.
The staff and management here, were amazing people. They really seemed like they loved what they do.
The culture was very diverse and open to helping anyone that needed help.
The hardest part about the job was feeling like you weren't helping enough. You always wanted to do more.
The best part of the job was that, rather you thought so or not, you got to help people.
50% off lunches even as volunteers, healthcare, great people
Was only volunteer work, ended too soon, short breaks for the work you did
Registered Nurse (RN) (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 3, 2017
Good people getting abused by patients who don't want to be helped, if you don't give narcotics to patients, you get an unsatisfactory patient experience.....They are broke, 36 million in hole, we had no urinals for a while, not kidding.
High patient ratios, clickish rn units, overworked, pay for parking, dangerous environment, nurses getting hurt, nothing done about it, patients transported to unit who are supposed to be in recovery room, oh well, you can do it, right?
There has to be a better, way, patient hotel for drug addicts and homeless people who hospital hop for a place to stay.
Clerical Support (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – February 26, 2017
Make bad financial decisions and the employees are the ones who pay, Like only giving 1% raises to "all non management employees.. etc" to meet the budget because of all the debt. Training is poor, management is uninvoled or overbearing no happy mediums. No sick time have to use pto if you're sick otherwise work sick. Definitely do not recommend friends and family to receive care here, the cheapest benefit option is a plan where you're only covered to be seen at Denver health had such horrible care and experiences as a patient I upgraded to a rediculously expensive heath plan option just to be able to get care outside of DH.
Co-workers, helping people with no other options for healthcare
Supervisor - Patient Information (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 24, 2017
I started as a secretary in Volunteer Services and my manager there was awesome. I advanced to Volunteer Coordinator then supervisor for Patient Information. My supervisor was excellent until they hired a new person who was controlling and not kind. It changed so much. It wasn't about the people anymore. I was always willing to help patients and their families and guide them to the right department. Everyday was a challenge and you new knew what you were going to endure each day but I loved my job.
Bilingual clerk (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 23, 2017
The hardest part of the job is to perform your duties without proper training. In my case it was clerical duties. I have learned a lot while working there. The management was very biased and unfair this is why I left. I do not recommend this employer unless you are fully trained top manager
HIM Dept. (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – February 9, 2017
Communication needs a lot of improvement, it's hard to work with management, there's a lot of favoritism, if your schedule to work and call in it's an occurrence or up to management discretion. PTO and Sick time are together. If your sick you need to show up and have them send you home to not have an occurrence. Co-workers are good to work with. There's no advancement you would need to transfer out of the dept.
