Management (Former Employee), LaPorte, IN – May 1, 2013
Pros: cafeteria food was very good!
Cons: the above review
Always short staffed, management had "you don't like it, get out" mentality. Overworked, doing two people's jobs and still getting disciplined about minor things. Too strict, tense environment. Hospital is in poor financial status. No job security. Very unhappy there.
Audiovisual Coordinator (Former Employee), La Porte, IN – October 14, 2013
Pros: very clean professional environment
Cons: hospital wide and system wide reoganization and position realignments.
I enjoyed my job at IU Health very much. I had much autonomy in my position. I had learned a lot about the audio visual industry and healthcare in general. It was a very busy but professional environment. My co-workers were great. Very friendly and helpful. The people there were amazing. The hardest part of my job was the increasing busyness of it. – more... I was a "one man show" in the audio visual department, and with all the meetings, classes, in-services, and outside events, it was hard to keep up at times, but I was successful in doing so. The most enjoyable part of my job being able to work with a variety of audio visual technologies, and also work with a variety of professional people. – less
Former central scheduler (Former Employee), LaPorte, IN – April 23, 2013
Cons: high turnover rate, no support from managers or staff, department is always inadequately staffed
This department has an extraordinary turnover rate, is extremely stressful and always understaffed. You will never received support from management or HR regarding employee concerns and favoritism runs high.
Nurse (Former Employee), La Porte – April 20, 2013
Pros: most coworkers are nice
Cons: no support from administration for compliance with standards of care
I came to work here because of the IU Health name. If IU wants to keep its name synonymous with good care, good value, good outcomes it better send an operational team to La Porte and Starke ASAP to take over and give some hope to patients and staff. I have worked at several hospitals over the course of my 30 year career and this is the first hospital – more... I refuse to receive care from and refuse to let any of my loved ones receive care from either. I have received a job offer from a well respected hospital and will be resigning from here first thing Monday. Do not accept a position here. Everyone I talk with here is also looking for other positions and hoping to escape ASAP. I venture to say with certainty that this hospital will be forced to close within five years if it does not improve drastically very quickly. – less
Medical Assistant (Former Employee), IU Health – April 7, 2013
Pros: benefits and local discounts
Cons: poor moral and management
I left a good organization to work for this company because I thought it would be a good opportunity for advancement and it was closer to where I lived. However, despite the many warnings from my peers (one's who previously worked for the organization before it was bought out by IU Health) I decided to take a position with them anyway which ended up – more... being the biggest mistake I could make in my career. Not only did I not know what I was getting myself into, but at the time I was also unaware that the position I was getting hired into had a high turnover rate and a shady history. Despite my best efforts to succeed and advance in my position as time passed, I was never given the adequate opportunities I was promised in the beginning because the work environment there was very unorganized and lacked good moral and competent management, and was very cutthroat due to unfair favoritism and biased management. It was unfortunate that my fears after working there such a short time had become a reality and I hope that some poor soul considering this position will see this as a warning and ignore all these biased and ridiculous testimonies by these recruiters whose sole job is to get you to apply. – less
Business Development Specialist (Current Employee), La Porte, IN – February 21, 2013
Pros: opportunities for advancement, friendly environment, great benefits and perks, accessible administration
I recently returned to work at IU Health La Porte hospital after a brief stint away. I had always loved the organization and felt the environment was very much like a family. Though the opportunity I left for was great, it was no match for the organization that I have grown to love. I was extremely happy to return.
Over the last roughly five years – more... I have been given numerous opportunities for advancement and constantly feel challenged to better myself and those around me. The colleagues and teams I have interacted with are all committed to each other and the communities they serve.
I have experienced immeasurable growth in my short time here and look forward to much more in the future. I would recommend employment at IU Health to anyone with a passion and a commitment for being the best of the best. – less
previous Customer Relations Rep. (Former Employee), IU Health Neurology – February 14, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: not the best benefits & "higher ups" are always right w/no say so from employee
This was my favorite job when I was employed by IU Laporte Health. I worked there almost a year and it was GREAT. Everyday was new and had a challenge It was a new practice & there was a misunderstanding that I somehow got caught up in with a strong position holding "higher up" & a practice admin. and they took my world away without PROPER investigating, – more... NOR taking into consideration my good reviews and customer satisfaction w/me AND without talking to me about the particular situation in which I was discharged. I won my unemployment and the Law Judge said they had NO PROOF of what they discharged me for - yet it didn't get me my job back. I would have loved to just get my job back!! I thought I worked for what was a great place, with compassion and an "open door" policy that treated ALL FAIRLY - NOT AT ALL. very disappointing. – less
