I would recommend Gateway as a place of employment
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – September 11, 2017
My experience with Gateway was I will always remember. Starting off as a cna I took pride in my work. Always went above and beyond. hospital would recognize and tell you to keep up the good work. The hospital had in house training that was beneficial so you wouldn't have to go else where I liked that. Hardest part of the job was when we were short staffed but we all came together and worked as a team to get the job done.Most enjoyable part of my job was making sure my patients got the necessary treatment and care they desired and encouragement for a great recovery and get home soon Gateway is a nice place to work. I would recommend anyone who wants to be in the medical field gateway is a good place to start.
Clinical Interventionist (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – September 6, 2017
Granite City is an economically depressed town hovering on the edge of Former Factory Town, but not quite there yet. Full of decay and homeless, the psych ward stays relatively busy. Therefore, they have hired only the finest psychiatric cases to head up their department for psychiatric treatment. I don't know if it's still that way, but it sure was that way in the old days.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – July 8, 2017
Excellent care in the Operating Room. Poor management. Long hours with high turnover. Call in the operating room was very difficult. Many a nights I worked well over 16 hrs and still had to work the next day. Management did not back their employees. Was told, "If you don't like it, go somewhere else." This was after being loyal for 16 years.
close to home at the time and high standards in the OR
Internship (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – July 5, 2017
I was only here for a short internship at their mental health department, but what I saw was good. The nurses seemed to care about he patients. There are few inpatient places left, and they seem to try the best they can
Psych units are full of bullies!!! Staff bullies!!
Behavioral Health Nurse (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – June 10, 2017
This place pays excellent but the recent change to require 12 hour shifts despite being hired for 8 hour shifts is poor management. The staff on the female psych unit is full of bullies. The staff plays one against the others and I was tired of crying when I left work due to immature idiots.
Financial Coordinator (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – May 20, 2017
I enjoyed working with my other coworkers. But they are always so understaffed they just keep putting more and more on you. I went from doing the job I was hired for to doing my job as well as 3 others jobs as well. The worse part is managers are not hired based on work. Lots of "its who you know, or who your related to.
They offer fun events for the staff diffferent times of the year.
You dont always get to participate because they are so understaffed.
Inconsistent workplace which does not treat employees in a consistent manner.
Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – April 4, 2017
A typical day at work was very busy with a generally high patient to nurse ratio. I learned a lot, something each shift. Management which worked with us directly were helpful when the floor became very busy. The staff was very supportive of each other, helping when others were busy. The hardest part of the job was watching people when they were given a bad diagnosis. The most enjoyable part was the co-workers.
Physician practices (Current Employee) – Granite City, IL – July 27, 2016
No place is a perfect place to work. I feel at GRMC everyone tries to be the best they can be. I am glad to be a part of the team and feel that everyone works together to accomplish the ultimate goal of taking good care of our patients.
Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Granite City, IL – April 6, 2016
I have learned so much while working here, my co-workers are great and pretty helpful. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with patients and the variety of patients you see here. Being able to gain experience with rehab, skilled nursing, bedside, and outpatient all in one job is pretty amazing.
Unit Secretary Emergency Room (Former Employee) – Granite City, IL – December 13, 2015
The ER was like a family. Everyone helped each other and had each others back, That is very important to me. We had a big turn over with the nursing director position and the moral dropped. The hardest part of the job is not taking things personal. The best part of the job is being part of a top notch ER and being part of making a differance.
