Cancer Registrar (Former Employee) – Idaho Falls, ID – October 31, 2016
I worked here and did an amazing job for 7 months in a position which needed a certification. They gave me a 10 cent raise after I passed my boards and acted like they were doing me a favor.
I exceeded all expectations of even a seasoned employee but management was far too obtuse to know it. Their quarterly hospital gatherings were all about how they could change the perception of being so inadequate in the public eye.
This was the only place I ever worked where everyone in the city had a horror story about how terrible the patient care was. Employees with 20 years experience broke down in tears after the horrible treatment when needing to use earned sick days/PTO...they have a convoluted criteria for how you can use the benefits for which you work, and when I left they cheated me out of $700 of my own money which I had saved in my 401k.
Its hard to believe that an employer would treat its people like that let alone get away with.
Health Information Management Director (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – October 26, 2016
Would recommend HCA to any healthcare specialists. Company has facilities in many cities and there is room for advancement. Salaries are also great with yearly salary reviews during performance evaluations.
Regional Director Performance Improvement (Current Employee) – Henderson, NV – October 16, 2016
HCA employs many highly talented individuals who contribute to the best practices that have been deployed throughout HCA facilities nation wide. These individuals are very educated and work hard. Management tends to work very long hours without additional incentive.
Many talented front line individuals to include in one's professional network.
Very political with many layers of management that are disconnected.
Unit Secretary Oncology Med/Surg (Current Employee) – Hermitage, TN – October 15, 2016
Very nice place to work.if I weren't moving back to Michigan I would stay there til I retired. Everybody is nice so is the work atmosphere . The doctors are very knowledgeable and very friendly. Easy to approach and ask questions.
Case Manager (Current Employee) – Port Saint Lucie, FL – October 11, 2016
I review my caseload, review new patient history to get a needs idea. I visit all my new patients, assess for needs, inquire about preferences. I visit my established patients. I ensure they have received the requested or required services to assure they have a successful experience. I assure every patient meets or exceeds their expectations of their stay. I review utilization for needs for continuation of care. I assure every discharged patient receives the services I have requested for them.
Strive for customer satisfaction. They bake cookies for patients daily.
Not enough assistance at times to handle high patient volume.
always being drilled about reducing costs to improve profits
Director of Development (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 30, 2016
Scary hospital with very old equipment. Much thought is given to remodeling and not touching certain walls to not have to bring care up to today's standards. I worried that I could be admitted some day.
Coding Manager/ HIM Director (Former Employee) – Florida – September 29, 2016
Health benefits at this company are not available (no health insurance coverage) for the first three (3) months. HCA and Parallon are self insured. The problem is that in 2015 several health care employees used their health insurance for things like minor outpatient surgery, pregnancy and were promptly terminated as 'at will.' If you want to keep your job at Parrallon or HCA you need to have outside health insurance with a spouse or just not use your health insurance. Pregnancy or a disability will result in job loss in the HIM field. (I had an excellent 6 th month job review, but than I went to the doctor -gone in 2 weeks). Both the immediate Director and CFO involved in termination no longer work there either but I cannot be rehired due to health history
Great benefits if you do not have a medical condition
Great facility to assist the RT's with career advancemnt.
Director of Cardiopulmonary/Sleep (Former Employee) – Palatka, FL – September 13, 2016
I had the opportunity to see the RT department grow and be productive to the point we were respected by most everyone in the facility. I maintained productivity, budget, staffing, and committees and kept all in ranges required. We had one of the best directors that I have had the privilege to work with and one of the few places there were no silos between departments. The hardest part of the job was trying to maintain productivity/acuity standards while cutting staff. The most enjoyable was to know that I made a difference in the RT department reputation, winning awards, etc.
Making a difference with patients and staff
Cutting staff and maintaining productivity vs. acuity
I answered phones for approximately 20-15 physicians on a daily basis.
Medical Specialist (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – September 7, 2016
While at The Frist Clinic, I answered phones and scheduled for several physicians. I learned that in any given situation you have to listen and try to understand what others are going through. I enjoyed working with my co-workers daily and trying to help them accomplish daily tasks so that at the end of the day we could say that we had a great day and were able to work together. The hardest part of the job was having to call patients and reschedule their appointment if something happened and the physician was not able to be there for the day. The most enjoyable part of my job was that at the end of they day I felt like I was able to help other people.
I worked here for 8 short months on a contract and absolutely loved everyone. They made you feel comfortable all the time and it was a great work environment. I miss everyone so much and working there felt like a family.
