The staff at Kootenai Health are my favorite part of working here.
Kootenai is one of the few hospitals that has stayed in the black while adding cardiac and neurological advanced services. The company is progressive and growing rapidly. Financially it is well managed.
Many staff members, like myself, have worked for many years at the hospital and like knowing their co-workers and management. We work as a close-knit – more... team and that adds to job satisfaction and encourages accountability for performance. I work with some fine people and staff in all positions.
Unfortunately, like many healthcare facilities of recent, they work employees the benefited hours without benefits. A few actually choose this option but overall I believe it to be a new business practice.
The most enjoyable part of my job is working directly with the patient and the public. I can make an impact on a persons coping, disease management, and education for a healthy lifestyle, and I can see the results, then that is immensely satisfying for me. – less
