Unit Secretary Nephrology Care Unit Day Full Time (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – February 12, 2016
A typical day as a full time unit secretary on NCU at Vassar Brothers Medical Center is always a new experience depending on the day! In order to balance the day ahead, I am always a productive worker with solid work ethic who exerts optimal effort in successfully completing tasks which I am assigned. Also being a team player is a deal breaker in the world of working a major hospital. I also believe that being a dependable, responsible contributor committed to excellence and success is key to working in such a hectic work environment, which working on a dialysis unit with very ill and uneducated patients it tends to be on a daily basis. Being enthusiastic, knowledge-hungry learner, eager to meet challenges and quickly assimilate new concepts are all attributes I try to follow throughout the day. The most enjoyable part about my day is knowing that I am helping others as a team!
Caregiver (Former Employee) – Flushing, MI – March 27, 2017
Working for Health Quest was a great experience. I loved the people I worked for along with the ladies I talked with during shift changes. Management was always helpful and understanding, they were willing to help me with the schedule I had to work around. I honestly would recommend this company to anyone who needs the extra care.

Site Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rhinebeck Medical Practice – June 2, 2014
Nasty environment. Supervisors are given all the responsibilities but none of the power. As a result staff does not respect site supervisor. Upper management encourages staff to report anything about site supervisor. Management does not back the site supervisor. Site supervisors are paid hourly rather than salary and are then criticized and disciplined by management for working 10 hours a day to get the work done. The management encourages culture of back stabbing.
Manager (Current Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – December 2, 2012
Ingrained culture inhibits progressive movement in culture. Operationally, a challenge due to unionized environment. Throughout years at hospital, there is valuable knowledge and experience gained. Support is high from peers and majority of leadership.
RN, staff (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsie, NY – May 1, 2016
Daily to day care of patients in a hospital setting. Co-working were stressful at time, but when emergency happen everyone worked together. The most important part of working together with the co-workers and the education.
Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Poughkeepsir NY 10601 – September 25, 2015
I did enjoy the work at Vassar especially my main boss and the inpatient prescription medical billing and coding. Inventory was challenging for a large hospital. Mostly because of the drug shortages at that time. The situation I wasn't in with was there was a high school behavior from grown women. It was very caddy and childlike and every was in a clique like behavior. It was very hard to accept.
My boss and i did enjoy the work I did.
Fellow employees behavior that was never taken care of by the management.
Manager (Former Employee) – New York – December 5, 2015
Overall, it was a good place to work. The employees were great. Health Quest has extremely high expectations of its employees, especially managers. The minute you do something wrong, you feel like you wear a target on your back. They are very good at pushing people out, especially when upper management doesn't agree with you or your opinion.
