I've worked at Hartford Hospital almost my entire young life it was my home away from home. Now that I have reared my children I'm hope and pray that I am given the opportunity to rejoin the Hartford Hospital family so that I may continue my life long passion which is patient care.
Department of Medicine, AAIII (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – November 9, 2017
For me, a typical day at work would include scheduling meetings with higher level executives and the Chief of Medicine, managing the expenses and budget, preparing reports, inputting resident and attending schedules into our on-call directory, requisitioning/ordering supplies through PeopleSoft, approving time cards, physician verification letters and academic promotion paperwork for UConn Health Center. I have learned a great deal about the healthcare system and it's ins and outs; how to work together as a team for the benefit of the patient and their family members. I have also learned a great deal about myself and what I can handle and have improved my abilities to interact with people from all walks of life. The Corporation tends to be a bit top-heavy; however, I believe they have the best interests of their patients and employees at heart. They provide excellent and competitive salaries and benefits. They recognize that it takes all employees to run the facility and rely on us to do our best every day. It's such a diverse culture with employees and patients from all backgrounds. The employees and contractors are friendly and will to lend a hand. It is the most diverse employer I have worked for. The hardest part of the job is knowing information that is privy to the executives but not to the rest of the staff. Knowing that there might be lay-offs or someone might be terminated. Seeing anyone let go from a company is always hard. I most enjoy the people I work with...from the physicians right down to the environmental services staff. They all make coming tomore... work worth it and enjoyable!less

Medical Assistant Associate (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – November 2, 2017
Fast exciting place to work in, never a dull day. Multiple ethnicity groups and different cultural range. I have learned to be compassionate, demonstrate empathy and consideration towards co-workers and clients/patients. The hardest part of the job is not being able to provide more services to help the community in their needs specially the minorities. Healthcare is very important for the growth and the development of the families within our communities specially in this part of town. Coming to work every day; enjoying my co-workers, these ladies have made me feel so loved and comfortable that I see them as home/family. Plus, the clients/patients need all the support that we can give them. I enjoy the patients and their kindness. Yet, not all are kind but they all have a sorry to tell. Hartford Hospital/the Specialty Clinic is a great place to work in, is going through some changes with new management but it is going to be for the better. Buy educating myself I am looking for a better future in which I can continue to grow, have a voice for the less unfortunate and make my family family proud. That is why I am graduating in may with my Bachelor's Degree in Social Work. Moving forwards for my Master's Degree.
I have always had an unconditional understanding of my co-workers and administrative staff.
People need to be more possitive in the way they see and resolve problems.
Requires the ability to exercise discretion and use good judgment to perform duties promptly and consistently with little direction. Work is subject to general review only and requires considerable accuracy and responsibility. Ability to maintain confidentiality at all times. Requires the ability to recognize problem situations and refer them to the appropriate staff member.
Support of Managers getting employees trained to assistant in performing jobs, advancing to different levels, and areas. within the hospital. There is a great network system of upper management to help each area / unit. Very similar to community. very supportive.
Great teaching hospital with excellent teachers. I learned my ER nursing through 3 physician assistants. although I had a nurse teaching me what I needed to do working in the ER. The PA showed me how and why patients required the care needed. I was most grateful for their tutelage.
Had no problem waking up early to go to work mainly because the friendly environment coworkers treat you like family here. You get the opportunity to help people no matter what role you play which is another great aspect working for this hospital.
Great place to work, great staff, great management, I loved this job! I made slot of great friends! No micro managers! Team work from top to bottom! Nothing negative to say! I really enjoyed working there and with working with all the staff!!
Patient Care Associate PCA (Current Employee) – Hartford, CT – September 6, 2017
Hartford Hospital is a good place to work. Many times short stuffed but they have great nurses and nurses aides. The hardest part of the job is seeing very sick people every day and sometimes there is nothing you can do for them except to keep them comfortable.
Hartford Hospital is a very fast paced environment. You learn so much that will become beneficial if you are interested in a Healthcare career. Working in a hospital has taught me how to appropriately approach and communicate with people of all ages.
