Health Unit Coordinator (Current Employee) – Portage, WI – March 9, 2014
Fast-paced smaller hospital. Nearby there is a ski hill, a state prison, as well as numerous lakes and the Wisconsin River, so there is always something interesting coming through the facility.
Really great staff and mostly very friendly, almost like a family is some ways.
Management tries, they are not perfect, but who is?
Hardest part of the job...the health insurance could be better. Pricey for an employee to go to the ER or Urgent Care. The current insurance does not allow employees to see Dean providers outside of the city of Portage
401k, employee healthy living programs, discounted fitness center, modern facility, free popcorn!
the food in the cafe is not the best and has very limited hours, needs better insurance
Rewarding work environment with hard working staff
Director of Materials Management (Former Employee) – Portage, WI – January 17, 2015
I started with Divine Savior as totally new to the healthcare environment. When I started, everything in Materials Management department was paper driven. Meaning if I wanted to find out where we ordered even basic supplies I had to search 4 drawer filing cabinets. DSH was open to improving and updating the department from the start. I was able to get a MMS to keep all information on computer. We advanced the process to creating orders for the buyer. The department grew from 2 people to 5.5 as we took on more of the purchasing and distribution of the hospital. In the 14.5 years I was with DSH I learned all there was to working in a Materials Management setting through hard work, new processes, working with sales reps and GPO representatives to stay current with contracts not to mention Service contracts and Biomed services. The most enjoyable part of the job was saving a buck or creating a new process that helped staff in the various departments to make things better for them to perform their job.
Beautiful Nursing Home and Assisted Living Facility
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Portage, WI – May 18, 2015
Great place to work. I started working in the nursing home and then transferred to the Assisted Living Wing. Every day is different when you are caring for people. I have enjoyed the emphasis on team work and problem solving which management encourages.
Rehab Aide (Current Employee) – Portage, WI – October 14, 2012
A typical work day includes pulling charts, doing my duties in inpatient (checking temperatures, cleaning, setting up rooms, etc), checking supplies in cardiac/pulmonary rehab (restocking if needed), cleaning, assisting therapists with ultrasounds and getting their patients started with treatments, setting up the wound care room (cleaning it after), putting in charges for the therapists, taking the mail to the mail room and bringing ours back to our department, putting linens away, among other various tasks. I have learned how to manage my time well in order to get all of my daily tasks done and how to approach difficult situations with co-workers/patients in a positive manner. Management is easy to get along with and to talk to, if there are ever any concerns. I enjoy working with all of my co-workers. They make it an enjoyable work place. The hardest part of the job is sometimes trying to juggle multiple tasks within a given time period. The most enjoyable part of my job would have to be working with such great people. It's also fun to work with the patients and meet new people.
wellness program, nice co-workers, good work environment, etc
Radiology Technologist (Current Employee) – Portage, WI – November 9, 2012
Divine Savioe has a well balance radiology dept. Most of the time a radiology tech. has the time to spend quality time with a pt. and perform good healthcare. I have learned what it takes to be a good radiology tech at DSH. But in a field like this one you never stop learning. My co-workers at DSH seem to really care about giving good care to there pt.'s. I have yet to find a physical demanding hard part to te job. But with most medical feild jobs emotional part of job can very depending on what or how the injury/illness is going to affect your pt. having a chance try and make a uncomfortable/scary/painful situation for a pt. and make it as easy as i can.
the ability to perform in many different area's in the radiology field like surgery, ortho, er, clinic, ct ex.
not having the chance to go from part time to full time.
