We worked very well as a team.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – February 2, 2016
Taking care of patient(s) ensuring that the received the best and quality of care. I learned so much as a whole while being employed with Memorial. My direct manager was nothing more than an exceptional individual who really wanted the best for me. As for my colleagues, I thoroughly enjoyed each and everyone that I came in contact with. Nothing was hard for me honestly other than getting the job done itself. The most enjoyable part of the job was me being able to build a relationship with each patient I came in contact with.
psychiatric nurse/med surgery nurse (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – January 15, 2016
Fast pace work environment, Multi tasking, Charge nurse duties, admission, discharges, counseling ,Medication administration.
Throughout the night and day, we get referral's from hospitals throughout Georgia. I must read referral's then decide if the patient is appropriate for our unit. Call physician to discuss patients health history, help MD in deciding if patient is appropriate for our unit. All med surgery duties- we are a part of a med surgery unit.
The hardest part of the job is being understaffed. I have strong patient assessment skills. I rely on my emergency room back ground.
The most enjoyable part of the job is noting the measurable improvement's of the patients from the admission date to the discharge date.
Warning ! Stay away ! Unless your in the "White collar crowd"
Electrician (Current Employee) – Marietta, OH – January 12, 2016
The money that is wasted right in front of my eyes here is out of this world. But try getting a raise! There are skilled employees that have been here for 20+ years that don't make $20 an hour !!! If you work here and you're not in the "White collar crime crowd" you're nothing more than a bargain... a cheap bargain. The pay inequality is outrageous, but normal for America these days. This place is the KING of do less make more. If you proof read for they're website, well that pays $60K... but if you're charged with keeping the day to day operations running and maintained, well that pays a whopping $29K. I WOULD NEVER RECOMEND ANYONE TO WORK HERE !!! No matter what skill or trade !
Very low pay per industry standard. Support staff are treated like dirt.
Emergency Management Coordinator (Assistant) (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – November 13, 2015
Benefits are expensive for a family. But overall, it's a great place to work. Most employees are pleasant to work with! They have a purpose -- a mission -- that everyone understands. Even better, every employee can tell you the role he or she plays in achieving that purpose.
Medical Laboratory Assistant (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – October 3, 2015
Management works with you a lot especially when it comes to your school schedule. They are very flexible when trying to work out that aspect of things out. The interesting thing of my job is going to traumas that come in through the ER. It's sad but true. The night may start quiet and then it changes so quick with the call of a trauma.
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Savannah,GA – September 21, 2015

The roles and responsibilities of my job are fantastic, enjoy the group of professionals with whom I work. Our organization has had some challenging past couple of years, partnering with university, the patient will benefit greatly. this is a great hospital and continuing to work on Magnet status. I personally am ready for a change in the style of job, I love working with medical people and the obstacles we face every day.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – July 3, 2015
I have gained a lot of knowledge in the health care field during my work with Memorial. I work in a fast-paced clinical setting. I am capable of working in a team setting and able to work alone. The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of seeing patient thrive and heal. The hardest part would be leaving my co-workers.
Medical Laboratory Scientist (Current Employee) – Savannah, GA – June 22, 2015
This is a great place to start your career, but not for longevity. It is a learning level one trauma center so you see a lot of things you would not be exposed to at smaller hospitals. Unfortunately it is also an underfunded hospital so raises are small when you do get them (i.e. 25 cents after no raise for 6 years). It is very hard to rise the ranks in the lab as the management has been here for 15 plus years. This is a good thing because they are experienced, but is also bad because it leaves no room for employees to grow into management if they wish. It is also hard to change policy with the times as they are stuck in their ways or funding will not be given for updates, and upgrades.
great place to start, lots of learning experiences
SENIOR REIMBURSEMENT SPECIALIST II (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – May 16, 2015
I dedicated myself to the Memorial Health Systems for 25 years. And, if there is one thing I took from there that has helped me tremendously over the past 8 years, it would be what I learned from them about being a team member. In a working environment, if you stand alone, you will fail.
