Health Unit Coordinator/Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – September 1, 2016
In a typical day I would work along side 10-20 nurses. I would assist the nursing managers and the directer of the Intensive care units. My co- workers were extremely pleasant to work with. The hardest part of the job was encountering families of patients that were on life support. the most enjoyable part of the job was when a patient got to go home from the intensive care.
Care Manager (Former Employee) – several – January 2, 2017
Not a supportive management when trouble hits. If you never get sick, never miss days, never have a patient complain about you (EVERYONE does), never ask for help, never make waves or suggestions, never expect to go home on time, "40 hours is a suggested weekly time frame"(email from current manager there), then you will NEVER have a problem unless you age past 45-50 and are still working there.
some patient care at expense of staff
poor management too much middle management, not enough RN staff with dementia patients
Family Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) – Arlington, WA – July 10, 2016
Great company with excellent benefits and supportive management. Learned how to register patients and bill insurance companies as well .This is a convenient care walk-in clinic located in a RiteAid store.
Great work environment where everyone is working for a common goal
Cardiovascular Perfusionist (Current Employee) – Tacoma, WA – January 18, 2016
Working at MultiCare Health organization is great. From the CVOR staff to the administration, everyone always seems to have a positive attitude with patient care being our top priority. I am extremely happy to be doing what I do with the team that I work with. The work/life balance is great and I am pleased at how involved MultiCare is in our community.
great benefits, work/life balance, great area to work in.
Multicare was taking over the private dr.s and employing them as their own.

Staff RN (Former Employee) – Puyallup, WA – October 22, 2014
A cold and Standoffish environment. No support given by management. It's their way or the highway. You walk around feeling like you have a black cloud over you the entire time. So happy not to be working their!!!
Long hours, incredible nurse patient ratio which decreases the amount of time you can spend with each patient
Medical Receptionist/Surgery Scheduler (Former Employee) – Auburn, WA – April 23, 2013
This was Internal Medicine Practice with 8 physicians- I would check in patients, verify insurance, schedule patients for gastroscopies/colonoscopies, deal with healthcare insurance approvals,etc. I was very active in extra activities for staff, fundraisers, and benefits. The hardest part of this job was my commute.
This is the most dysfunctional corporation imaginable
Physician (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – March 30, 2015
Stay away from this " Health Care System". All of the employees are used as pegs. You would have absolutely no input into your own practice of medicine and you would have all of the liability. They could care less about the physicians or any of the employees. Yes they adjusted the urgent care hours. They are now closing the doors at 730 PM instead of 8 PM because all of the physicians wanted to quit. The administrators with very little education run the roost in this organization and physician engagement is at 9 %.
91 % of the physicians in this organization are unhappy. That should speak volumes. Run away. This is not an organization you want to join unless you went to medical school so you can be in middle management and you want to practice in a dangerous environment where you do not have the tools to take care of your patients.
Many doctors get roped in by their supposed core values. They do not live them. They are a lie
nothing is good about this group unless you like abuse and totalitarianism
absolutely everything, this is a horrible place to work .
Specimen Processor/Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Tacoma,WA – August 26, 2012
Laid back work environment with knowledgeable staff. The on the job training programs were second to none and allowed for employees to advance their careers if they so desired. Supervisors in the laboratory were generous and respectful; making sure to go the extra mile to make sure their subordinates were happy with organizational policies. Staff from different departments had smooth communication and treated each other like family. A genuine desire to provide world class patient care could be felt by fellow employees and patients, as well.
The Patient Access Technician (PAT) (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 18, 2012
A typical day was very busy, if not there was always something new to learn. I have learned to have compassion for the customer, and provide excellent customer service. The management was very personable and always provided help when needed. I enjoyed my co-workers, we made lots of memories. The hardest part was leaving, and the best part was knowing I was somewhere I was appreciated and a place where I could grow.
Great company, needs some overhauling in the manager department!
Patient Transporter (Former Employee) – Puyallup,WA – January 15, 2015
I loved working for this company but there complete lack of disregard for the welfare of there employees has left a sour taste in my mouth! Loved the patients and my job while there. Moving on to better opportunities!
Laundry worker (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – December 14, 2013
I first I had some hard time with the people because you had to prove yourself to them, for them to accept you. They were a hard group of women to work with, but once you have proven yourself, which made it easier to fit in. I had a great learning exsperiance here and I enjoyed working with those people.
They are a tough group of people and expected a lot out of you.
Internship (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – May 14, 2015
A real joy to be an intern there. My managers were fantastic people, very understanding and sensitive to make sure I had valuable work to do, and made sure I was challenged. My responsibilities increased as I demonstrated my capabilities. The weekly huddles were great opportunities to voice issues and give updates for my work. They got to know me and really listened to me, which didn't happen at previous employments. For an unpaid internship, it was worth every minute in the experience I gained and the fantastic people I worked with.
