It is for profit, therefore we worked short handed most of the time , I loved my co workers, during review the nurse managers spoke anyhow and got away with it. Almost everyone I worked with left. It is a beautiful hospital I hope it has gotten better.

Las Colinas Medical Center is a clean and caring Hospital. There's room for Improvement. The enjoyable part of the job is teamwork and flexible schedules. The hardest part of the job is work overload. My co-workers are very kind and friendly. The management is very organized. What I learned is to work together.
Secretary- Part-time Medical Staff Services (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – January 19, 2014
Everyone is very friendly. Nobody passes anyone without speaking to one another. I've been able to learn how many different departments throughout the hospital works because in addition to my department. However, this has also been a disadvantage because I am only a part-time employee and when the position would be filled I wouldn't be able to earn more hours which effected my income. My co-workers are very supportive of my professional and personal life, always willing to help and make sure I maximize my work experience at all times. The hardest part of the job are the constant changes to policies not being relayed to the employees outside of Directors/Managers. The most enjoyable part of working at Las Colinas Medical Center is that it's a beautiful, well kept campus that's always being updated and the employee engagement activities that are available to ALL employees.

FULL TIME/PRN (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – September 14, 2013
Management's priority was census vs employees and often RN's were required to work understaffed. High priority placed on patient education and discharge follow up. On-Call hours allowed for autonomous patient care and critical thinking.
high priority placed on education for patients and employees
A typical day at work consisted of the following: Reviewing calendars for the office executives Preparing all the materials and information necessary for their daily meeting, Fielding all incoming calls to the Administration office Updating policies and procedures Contract management I learned to use Compliance 360 to create, track and update policies, I learned the contract management process, from creation to implementation. My management team and co-workers were more like family than bosses and co-workers. The hardest part of the job was handling patient complaints; however, finding solutions for their problems and seeing their gratitude was one of the most enjoyable things of the job.

A typical day, working as a therapy coordinator, involves everything from answering phones and greeting patients to communicating with Dr.s and staff regarding patient treatment details and specific instruction for treatment. Maintaining this position, for two and a half years, has taught me how to multitask, prioritize, communicate, organize, and follow specific instructions and procedures. I have direct communication with all therapists and a close working relationship with the therapy supervisor. When any of the therapy staff needs information, instruction or help with tasks, paperwork and the like, they come to the department coordinator first. The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to make a difference in a patient's day. A smile, joke and word of encouragement go a long way.

Registrar/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Irving, TX – August 31, 2012
the patients are what keep you going, there is always a new face, someone to help and something to do. the management team is not what i would consider to be "fair". Beautiful work environment but the ethics of some employees is very discouraging.
