Billing Representative (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – September 9, 2014
Pros: many activities, fitness centers, rewards for work well doine
Cons: can not think of any
A typical day was to accomplish as much as possible to get the claims paid in a timely manner. I learned about hospitals billing as compared to provider billing. The management is excellent and very caring as I saw it. My co-workers were pleasant and helpful people. The hardest part was trying to transition from provider based billing to hospital based. I – more... enjoyed the people I came in contact with on a daily basis. – less
Senior Accountant (Former Employee), Bethlehem, PA – August 27, 2014
Pros: fantastic supervisor, great work environment, mission & vision
Cons: structure/functions compartmentalized
The health industry is a very rewarding industry. I was afforded development outside of circle of responsibility due to completing assignments ahead of schedule, willingness and ability to take on many roles and functions with minimal direction. The environment was professional yet there was camaraderie amongst all staff which was around 21 in the accounting – more... department alone. – less

Technical Partner (Current Employee), Allentown, PA – August 18, 2014
Pros: very good benefits
Cons: often times are short staffed
A typical day at work involves taking care of 10 patients overall needs involving: phlebotomy, specimen collecting, vital signs, catheter care, blood glucose monitoring, wound care, bathing/toileting, physical therapy, and EKGs. I have learned how to present myself in a professional manner, multi-task, and work as a team player. Lehigh Valley Hospital – more... is managed very well, and there are always new changes which are implemented well by our management staff. My co-workers all work very well together. We have developed a team approach and depend on each other to accomplish our tasks as a unit. The hardest part of my job is when we are short staffed. It is a little more difficult to accomplish the tasks that need to be done in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am helping people during some of their toughest times. If I am smiling and friendly it helps the patients stay positive and smile. – less
Financial Planning Analyst (Former Employee), Allentown, PA – August 11, 2014
one of those places where 10 hour days are the minimum expected and bringing work home regularly is an assumed duty. All professionals work in tiny cubes in large opened area. Absolute silence is expected, etc. Just horrible.
Professionals working together to provide excellent care...
