Medical Staff Coordinator (Medical Staff Office) (Current Employee) – Hammond, IN – August 10, 2017
My experience as an employee at Franciscan Health was a very rewarding experience, as I learned a lot about my position from my co-workers and developed strong relationships with medical staff, allied health and other employees.
Franciscan Physician Network-Munster (Current Employee) – Munster, IN – July 30, 2017
The office that I work in is a very busy office. Typically patient range is 85-160. Since this is a fast paced office the day goes pretty fast. We have no management in the office itself yet, and it would run smoother if there were one. I like the people I work with and we all work well together. The most enjoyable part of the job is the patients. Most of the patients are in pain and I love to make them laugh. If I can make one person laugh or smile during the day then I have reached a goal.
Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) (Former Employee) – Dyer, IN – July 25, 2017
Enjoy working with the great staff building relationships that last a life time.with Nurses and other Patient tech's. Typical day at work taking care of the patients getting them ready for their day of physical therapy, updating patient information in the system. The hardest part of the job was at the end of the shift after being on your feet all day your feet what to fall off. My most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that my patients where well taken care off.
fast paced focused environment, with you occassional laugh
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Munster, IN – July 21, 2017
My experience in pediatrics was quite enjoyable. Children are a blessing and deserve to be treated as such. I learned a lot about vaccines and the appropriate ages certain vaccines need to be administered.
The toughest part I regretfully have to admit was dealing with the parents. Although, I feel I always managed to handle each and every parent as well as I treated the children.
always being busy
not enough hours in the day for the children that needed to be seen
Medical (Current Employee) – Munster Indiana – July 17, 2017
I love working for this Clinic. My coworkers are amazing and the doctors I work for have been wonderful. They say you'll never work a day in your life if you can do what you love and I really love what I do. On the downside the pay isn't the greatest and it's obvious the supervisors are overworked. Also the point system is not realistic it's like you get punished for being sick. But in spite of this I'd rather work here then somewhere where co-workers aren't a team.
PCN (Current Employee) – Crown Point, IN – July 11, 2017
I enjoy working here, I learn a lot and the nurses on my floor are extremely helpful My first job with benefits and it is great. The Franciscan values are something that I can follow and it is a very understanding place to work
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Valparaiso, IN – July 8, 2017
This location has very poor management. Long hours, unfriendly staff. High turn over for staff. Manager likes to blames others for her mistakes and when you go above to discuss problems they just turn it around to make it your fault. Some of the doctors are very rude and yell at you in front of patients. Not a good office to be in when all day long you here the staff complain about the office.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Crawfordsville, IN – July 3, 2017
Management (from my experience) was not trained in management techniques nor leadership. I felt as though there was always a lot of turnover in the higher ups. Also had bad experience with new HR staff. They were out to protect the company and not support their workers.
Cardiology Technician (Former Employee) – Munster, IN – July 3, 2017
Enjoyed working with the patients and staff. When the Franciscan's bought out the clinic, the corporate structure made it a less enjoyable work place. The culture appeared to be more about profit and less about patients.
Service Excellence Coordinator (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 22, 2017
Our office took interpreting requests for all limited English and hearing impaired patients receiving services at the hospital and off site physician offices. We also handled all patient complaints/grievances.
Patient Access Receptionist (Current Employee) – Munster, IN – June 21, 2017
This place of employment creates an great atmosphere to work in the individuals that are employed have such an pleasant helping and hardworking attitude. Franciscan Alliance is one of the best working environments I have been apart of. Very Professional.
Radiologic Technologist (Current Employee) – Dyer, IN – June 11, 2017
The biggest issue with this company is their complete lack of job security. I have worked with them for years at different locations and they always bring in consultants and fire large number of staff. In fact they have decreased staff too much on more then one occasion where they had to hire many of them back because there was not enough staff to do the jobs required.
In radiology we are so understaffed we cannot even fill all the shifts even with everyone working more than their required hours. We are very overworked with only 1 or 2 people covering In house patients, ER patients, an outpatient center, surgery, pain clinic and fluoro exams.
This is a bariatric center so if you cannot move 500+ pound patients with little to no help and no patient moving devices except a slide board, you don't want to work here.
The pay and benefits in this organization are substandard. I make 5 dollars less than I did 6 years ago at another organization. They refuse to hire people for full time and so we are mostly part time employees and therefore the benefits cost about 40% more than full time employees. As part time employees we don't get pensions, our PTO is accrued at as lesser rate and we don't get many of the perks full timers receive.
There are some very good points to this location (Dyer) as well. The coworkers are fantastic and a very fun place to work. The manager and director are the best I have ever had. They are not afraid to get their hands dirty and always help out when needed. They also will fight for you and not through you under the bus ifmore... something happens.
All in all this is a nice place to work if all you want is a part time job and you are not going to use their benefits. If you need full time employment or need good benefits look elsewhere for a job.less
