Best healthcare organization to work for in the Chicagoland area
Staff (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – September 16, 2016
Best team of clinical dietitians! Loyola staff and management truly work by the organization's values of care, concern, cooperation, and respect, with each other and the patients they care for. Excellent network of resources throughout the medical center. There is always someone able/willing to assist - IT, QI, HR, infection control, policy, competencies, etc. It's a special place, unlike any other healthcare environment I have been part of in the past twenty years.
Nice place to learn about planes, always busy and always a great workout place.
Security and Safety Officer (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL 60153 – June 27, 2016
Swiss port is what you call a place full of dangerous equipment's you have to be really careful and be aware when a air plane is on the ground, when the engine is being turned on, and not standing behind the plane when it time for it to depart from the air port.

My days were very busy but fun. It was always something new to see and learn about medical conditions and patients. I was able to work on different units and co-workers were very nice. My hours fit my life great.
Registered Nurse- 5 Tower (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – October 18, 2015
Loyola is known for hiring ADN nurses which is hard to find these days. It has a wealth of knowledge to be had from peds, to NICU, to surgical ICUs, and wonderful med surg floors. Many sub specialties exist in this institution making for a well rounded nurse.

I am thankful to have gain hostipal experience from working here but the pay is not equal to work. Loyola don't pay their employees what they deserve . The nurses are lazy and make housekeeping job harder when they don't do their job and remove what they suppose to out the rooms.
Medical Technologist (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 2, 2015
It was so routine and boring...However, it did run like a well oiled machine. If you want to advance you have to push for it. If you don't fit in with the lab culture they will find a way to force you to leave.
Fast paced, high energy healthcare organization built around Christian values
Senior Registration Specialist - FCC (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – September 29, 2015
Working for a newly implemented department allows you the opportunity to assist with protocols that will be used throughout the medical center. Loyola is an amazing place to work, learn and grow both personally and professionally
The opportunity to learn all facets of the healthcare industry
Data Specialist (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – September 12, 2015
I had the opportunity of working several positions at Loyola. A lab assistant, operating room front desk clerk, and a data specialist. Each position I learned how to prioritize my time. Each position was fast pace and I learned many different things in each department. Assisting the medical technologist and assisting in controlling the operating room front along with the nursing staff, and being responsible for billing operating visits.
Surgical Technologist (Current Employee) – Maywood – August 25, 2015
The OR is run by mostly the RNs. It's difficult to be a Surgical Tech there. I have worked at other hospitals where the OR is run by the Techs and here the nurses seem to look down on you for being a tech. However you do see a lot of stuff you wouldn't see else where and if you can get into the good cases you will learn a lot. But the work/life balance is rough. You will take a lot of call time and the pay is not that great at all compared to other hospitals in the area.
You can learn a lot if you get the chance
Bad pay, lots of call, work to life balance is off
Patient Placement Clerk (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – August 10, 2015
If you're not in management or know someone in management it's hard for you tell excel and grow within loyola. This company only recognize it's doctor's and nurses. The pay is not as good as you would think for a university medical center.
I have noticed that to excel in any management position at Loyola they have one thing in common which is the ability to speak like they know what is going on within their departments and organization when they really don't have a clue. I cannot see how an organization can run effectively with so many management people with this mentality
enjoyed working there enjoyed the collegues
Health benefits one of the worst in the Health care industry
Excellent admirable place to work, very healing, patient focused hospital.
Patient Care Technician II (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – June 28, 2015
Admirable staff who ALL worked together, from the physicians to the housekeepers to guarantee that each and every patient was satisfied with their stay. I obtained many new skills at LUMC and there is always opportunity to learn more. The staff at LUMC really lives by their slogan "we also treat the human spirit" and really go above and beyond to make sure the patient was the most healing comfortable stay during their time of need. LUMC a doubt has some of the greatest, selfless staff that I have had the pleasure of working with.
Excellent teamwork, Recognition for hardwork, patient focused care
Again the only con I can think of is that at times we work short staffed as PCT's
