Director of Operations (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 4, 2016
If you were to look up "the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing"....... you will find Dignity Health number 1 on that list. In 30+ years of employment, have never seen anything like it. Additionally, I have never been treated in such a disrespectful manner.
There was not one system in place that worked well or was useful in any way whatsoever. The HR department was extremely dysfunctional. Everything I went to them for was seemingly trial and error for them. Never any solid answers or information that they presented could be perceived as accurate, appropriate or professional. It felt as though they were always starting from scratch and re-inventing the wheel.
Pay was adequate/appropriate for myself. Their policies on how much one should be paid leaves something to be desired. They do not understand the concept of previous employment and that experience should count for something when determining an appropriate rate of pay.
Coordinator (Current Employee) – Bakersfield, CA – February 1, 2016
Overall, great organization that really strives to be current and offer a competitive edge in the community. The downside is that the hospital is Unionized by the SEIU for Allied Healthcare positions (LVNs, CNAs, Medical Assistants, Surgical Techs, X-ray Techs) and the CNA union for RNs. I am a non-union employee and I really do not like how the Union & it's employee representatives, are always fighting the change that leadership is trying to make- for the good! Grant it, clinical staff is not guaranteed to work 40hrs a week- but the standby, the time and half call-back pay, continuing education hours freely given, constant incremental raises, make up for it. Most of the time, this hospital is short-staffed, but I genuinely believe it is because Bakersfield is a difficult market to sell to RNs from Los Angeles (the area and the pay is not comparable). The Union protects the worst employees who breed a culture of bullying and negativity, at least in my department.
Benefits: FREE HEALTH INSURANCE, Tuition Reimbursement, opportunity for growth among other Dignity Health facilities.
Bakersfield Memorial Hospital Cons: Union Hospital. Physicians get away with bad behavior, senior admin. will let them have their way even though it affects our department budgets, staffing levels, and contrary to our own policies.
Health Information Clerk (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 1, 2016
I was hired in 2010 to work for the HIM Department. Come 2011 we were told the department was over staffed by two FTEs. Unfortunately our positions were eliminated. The question is why hire people if you are over staffed to begin with? As far as my supervisor,director and manager go, they were great people to work for. I wish them the best. I heard the director was outsourced to an outside company while leading the HIM team.
Pay and benefits
Can flex and cancel when the census and discharges are low.
Receptionist- Preforms registration duties (Current Employee) – San Andreas, CA – January 23, 2016
It is a very busy atmosphere, registering patients, answering phones, faxing. The hardest part of the job is trying to compose yourself when the patients are upset and don't feel well and they tend to take it out on you. But you just have to be empathetic and understanding to there situation. The most enjoyable part of the job is that the people you work with are like a second family, we all care about each other.
Radiology Clerk (Former Employee) – Merced, CA – January 16, 2016
director of radiology wasn't very friendly and was always walking in and if you weren't on his "good" list he didn't say anything to you. Always trying to be intimidating and definitely had his favorites.
The supervisor was awesome! She would do anything to help her employees.
Housekeeper (Former Employee) – Cedar Rapids, IA – January 15, 2016
loved communicating with the patience. learned different duties to do on every floor that was different. kept in touch with my co-workers throughout the day and asked questions when I had them. I would have to say there really wasn't a hard part of my job.
RN PIU (Former Employee) – Glendale, CA – January 6, 2016
Despite the great staff and good compensation and benefits, the culture of work is such, that administration consistently employs unprofessional and incapable managers, which makes the work place extremely stressful.
IT Contractor (Former Employee) – Redding, CA – January 5, 2016
This was a fast paced, always changing, IT environment in a hospital setting. The management and attitude was positive and high energy. The benefits were competitive. My coworkers were personable. It was a great job to have.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – January 5, 2016
Each day I would work the front office, check in patients, collect copays, check insurances, etc. I would also work the back office, take vitals, chart results either in paper charts or electronically. I would do this for several different doctors a week.
Office Coordinator/Surgery Scheduler (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 4, 2016
Fine place to work, good benefits. The hospital I work for really needs electronic health records, without this we lack the efficiency potential. It leaves room for error and creates a larger work load.
Director, Business Intelligence (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – January 4, 2016
Dignity Health has done an excellent job of growing in a difficult industry. They have focused on growth without losing focus on providing care to those in need. Employees are treated well and it is overall a very good place to work.
Human Resource Assistant (Current Employee) – Memphis, TN – December 31, 2015
It has been a great place to accommodate and work in the department. There is a lot of team work involve and communication is always best in any place of employment; however it is our focus to give praises and help each other as much as possible.
Yet, as the new year come; we are loosing a great team member and asset to our department the first of January. We all have meet and know that we now; have to pull together a little bit harder to get things done in our department!
This is why I love working at Saint Francis Memphis.
