Great staff to volunteer with. I was able to be put to use, and learn so much about working within a hospital environment.

lab tech (Current Employee) –  LabJanuary 16, 2016
I was very unsatisfied with my employment here. The lab is always understaffed and the turnover is the highest in the hospital. The management lies about everything and covers up mistakes to allow themselves job security. The employees in the lab are some of the nicest, hardest working people you will meet, minus a few control hungry trolls that just need to be put out to pasture. Phlebotomists work ridiculously long hours and are not compensated AT ALL. Lead phlebotomist and section leads are amazing, but don't get any credit for their hardwork and are often reprimanded or punished for very small things. Managers turn a blind eye to problems that could easily be fixed if they chose to follow hospital protocol. Hopefully one day, they will get it figured out.
Pros
Nice lab workers
Cons
Managers that lie, department that is always understaffed

In my opinion the employees and the atmosphere is what make this hospital great. My patients and co-workers are the highlight of my day and make coming to work enjoyable. I constantly get compliments on the friendliness of everyone involved in the patient care.

RN Internship (Former Employee) –  Sycamore, ILJuly 6, 2012
Even though it was an internship, in one short month I was able to get to know the staff pretty well. They were great to work with and willing to help out a future RN. I thought it was a great experience and would love to continue to work there.
Pros
