Pre-Arrival Admitting Representative (Former Employee), Tulsa, OK – July 14, 2014
While working at Saint Francis Pre Arrival I learned a lot about many different medical insurance companies and the processes to go through to get authorizations for medical procedures. The hardest part of the job was learning all the different rules and regulations. I enjoyed speaking with the patients the most and relating to them on a personal level. – more... I did not care for to collecting the patient’s anticipated financial responsibility because I would feel sorry for those that couldn't afford to pay. The hospital was a great company to work for because they took care of their employees and were always pushing for you to improve yourself and growing your career. – less
Good opportunity for advancement, but get ready for the life style
EMR Implementation Analyst (NextGen) (Current Employee), Long Beach – July 9, 2014
Pros: opportunity for advancement
Cons: office politics
I have been given many opportunities for advancement and growth. I have learned a lot here and am eternally grateful for everyone who took the chance on me and was willing to help me grow into my positions. However, leadership is highly unorganized and inconsistent. The way people are allowed to talk and treat each other is mind boggling at times and – more... if you are not part of the cool kids club... you're going to have a bad time. I believed that no matter where you go you are going to have the office politics so I have stayed with the company for many years, but friends who have left say that there is nothing like the Dignity Life Style. – less

PCT (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZ – June 30, 2014
As a pct, a typical day at work consisted of starting vitals, bed baths, and cleaning patients. Night shift is different then day shift. Night shift deals directly with the patients because PT, OT, ST, Doctors and visitors were usually not with the patient's like they are with day shift which lead for more time being spent with the patients. The management – more... team at dignity health was great, if there was an issue it was solved immediately. Co-workers worked well together to get the job done.
