Medical Secretary/Transcriptionist (Current Employee) – Rhinelander, WI – July 18, 2016
Ministry Health Care started as a great, local healthcare company that really cared about its employees and valued their input. Over the past 10 years, the system was sold numerous times and implemented change after change, making it difficult to keep up and even more difficult to be productive and effective as an employee. Despite frustrations, there has been a core group of management and employees who have stuck it out and maintained a working department that strives to exceed expectations on a daily basis.
Decent compensation, some flexibility
Constant change, communication less than desirable
Case Management (Current Employee) – Sturgeon Bay, WI – June 15, 2016
Nice place to work as small type facility with good support systems of team members. Job is great with challenging situations and sometimes frustrating situations (but doesn't every place.) I learned so much about myself as a professional and what remaining compassionate can bring to the satisfaction of your job. Definitely allows for the personal contact with patients and family members as well as staff and management, this comes with long employment in one place.
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Neenah, WI – May 5, 2016
I worked for Ministry Homecare and hospice. I had an absolutely dreadful experience. The immediate supervisors and managers were horrible. You could not trust anyone as they were all out for themselves. This business was more like a catty junior high school than a professional health care organization. For a faith based company, they are the worst hypocrites. Do yourself a huge favor and stay far away!
Micromanagement, no integrity, dishonesty, hostile work environment, low pay.
Recovery Audit and Appeal Specialist (Current Employee) – Appleton, WI – April 7, 2016
During my time with Ministry Health Care, I was given the opportunity to learn how to be the administrator for the database that manages Recovery Audit information. I helped develop process and procedures, created workflow plans, instructions and provided training for new users.
My role continues to expand and I learned how to audit the system, create and generate report able information that is shared with high-level management.
Great work environment, collaboration within the departments has been positive
Many unknowns, staffing changes, organization structure
Registered Medical Assistant - Plover Clinic/Family medicine
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Plover, WI – February 6, 2016
Positives: large corporation, some co-workers helpful, great benefits, great mission statement, pay fair for position, patients, working with a variety of providers.
Negatives: mission statement not followed, long hours, never left on time, constantly rushed, under staffed, schedule always changing, nurse practitioners were rude and did care whether you got a break or even got a lunch, (there is a company policy regarding this but it was never enforced) 4 managers in two years, hard to get earned time off, high turnover.
PSR (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – January 12, 2016
I have never dreaded waking up and going to work more than I ever have in my entire life as much as I did while employed by Ministry. They completely disregard their mission statement that they claim to be such a huge part of their values. I felt unappreciated and there was tons of favoritism. Different rules applied to different people. Supervisors were stuck up if you weren't in their "club". The day i left was like a huge burden was lifted off my shoulders. They definitely do not treat their employees as a religious company should. The pope would be disgusted. Lol.
Weren't given breaks we were supposed to get. Unappreciative. Rude.
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Stevens Point, WI – November 4, 2015
I would never work there again - the entire culture in my department was the worst I have ever experienced. The best people to work with were the contract associates/consultants as they were always friendly because they did not know otherwise.
EVS associate (Former Employee) – Weston, WI – July 15, 2015
I worked in EVS for 4 months. Applied and got a job 40/hrs/week, but when started told I was a casual employee, even though I was getting 40 hours. This way they didn't have to pay benefits. Several people hired after me given 40 hours or 24 with benefits right away. Supervisor of EVS needs to grow up. Very juvenile, lies right to your face, then talks behind your back. The cliques in this department are TERRIBLE!!! People are targeted to be treated poorly. Very huge turnover in this department. If you are considering working here, RUN, do not even interview as it is not what is promised you at the interview.
Environmental Services (Current Employee) – Merrill, WI – April 28, 2015
Typical days are are not always smooth, very high turn over in housekeeper, co-workers very clicky, not a pleasant atmosphere. Hard to work when everyone seems to be stressed out. The best part of the job is there are a few really nice people who really get it, and know what your going through, with out saying a word, just a simple shake of there head, or a pat on the shoulder you know just what they are agreeing to in this work place. For a catholic hospital I would like to see much more happiness going around.
Overall a wonderful warm and inviting place to work
Graphic Designer (Current Employee) – Wausau, WI – June 18, 2015
My job may include the everyday run-of-the-mill to working on more creative items, pushing me to think "out-of-the-box) Ministry helped me and have found my time inspiring to grow not only professionally but also personally.
