I love my job, but I definitely do not make enough money. That is my only problem with Doctors once my benefits began coming out of my pay check it felt like I was working for free. I work as a CNA for the experience, and help that I receive on the job while in nursing school. Everyone I work with is great, and going to work is fun. I love being told that I am great at my job by co-workers and patients it makes me feel so good. I love making someone in a hospital feel better when they are have a tough time. Going out of the way to make a difference for them. The nurses that I work with have no problem jumping on the floor and doing a tech job.
Supportive team members, Great upper management, Supportive environment
Certified Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA – March 25, 2016
They are always open 24/7 365 days a year Good management high stress jobs and difficult to balance work and life. Opportunities to learn skills and knowledge of multiple departments. Town Hall meetings are given every quarter to inform employees of any new developments and goals of the Hospital.
Unit Clerk (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA – January 4, 2016
It is not compatible with the normal pay scale for the medical field. It has a large turn over ratio. It actually takes away benefits and incentive pay from employees. They need to be more competitive with other medical facilities.
Intern (Former Employee) – Edinburg, TX – August 22, 2016
Working with the patients and learning about different mental health diagnosis. I enjoyed networking with different health services. I am passionate about psychology, counseling, and individuals that have special needs. Working here really encouraged me to continue my education by working for a Master's degree in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling in hopes to become an LCD.
I enjoyed working at Doctor's Hospital because I got along with patients, nurses and doctors. Unfortunately, a co-worker would come in at 3:00p and have to go home or she would come in at 11:00p and have to go home so I'd have to work her shift.
I enjoyed staying busy and got along with patients, nurses, and doctors
A co-worker always had to go home when she came in. I'd have to work her shift. It was stressful.
An above average private hospital. Good management, excellent employees that are treated fairly and retention is good. Even though there are many other hospitals to work in. I recommend the care there. I hold Doctors as the best hospital in Sarasota. Even though my son works for their competitor. The local so called community hospital has tried to outshine them and effect their existence but due to their quality they keep pace. Best hospital in bay area except Mortan Plant.
great care, goodpatient ratios, private rooms, employees treated with respect and dignity.

Rehab/Med-Surgical Charge Nurse (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA – June 9, 2016
A typical day at work is filled with new experiences and challenges. The environment is team spirited and an opportunity to build life long relationships. I have had an opportunity to expand on my clinical skills and bed side manners. A typical day is always busy fun filled and patient centered.
Small community hospital focused on individualized patient care as well as friendly approach toward personnel. Great opportunities for advancement and development in the healthcare field within the company. For-profit facility focused on productivity and efficiency.
worked there fresh out of school, worked EVERY area except in OR. Planned on retiring from there. closed my unit. we floated all over for 1 yr. but because my yrs there laid us older [years high]. then combined with another hospital. I wanted to stay but pushed out. HR it not hospital anymore it is a business.
Multi Skilled Technician (Current Employee) – Augusta, GA – January 25, 2015
A typical work day would consist of caring for, anywhere from 10 to 20 patients, from giving a glass of water to changing a bed, changing and cleaning soiled briefs. Collection of blood specimen, EKGS, telemetry, transferring patients from chair to bed, positioning and re-positioning. Checking glucose and taking and recording vitals. Run errands, answering phones and call lights. During my time and experience with Doctors Hospital of Augusta I have learned to take nothing for granted and that all lives matter. The management team is great to work with as well as my coworkers we all have the same goal and that is to give our patients the highest quality of care. The hardest part of the job is working the long hours with no breaks or short staff. My most enjoyable time while working is the ability to assist and talk with patients especially those that have little to no family, giving them comfort and conversation, a warm smile and a few jokes goes a long way.
no breaks, short lunches and short staff no incentive to work extra or longer shifts like nurses
