EMT-B (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – January 31, 2016
The hospital was taken over my New York Presbyterian and they laid us off and hired from within their other hospitals. We were not even given the opportunity to apply for a position. We were very busy units within the city 911 system
Float team nurse (Former Employee) – Flushing, NY – December 2, 2015
Working at NYHQ was a great learning experience. I learned to work alone, without help from anyone, on the ED inpatient unit. Since there I was usually placed there by myself without any other RN's or even sometimes, without aides. A typical day at work at NYHQ consisted of AT LEAST 10 acute care patients, including those receiving blood transfusions, those on ventilators, and those who were confused and very high fall risk. Over half the time, the medical equipment would not work properly or wasn't even available. When I was privileged enough to actually have a coworker with me, it was usually still me doing the work. There was one aide who actually just slept the majority of her shift. I notified the nursing supervisor twice, and she physically saw the aide at the desk sleeping, but nothing happened! NOTHING!
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – New York – November 29, 2015
everyday is different as i deal with multiple ages and diagnosis ; for me it is a challenge every day that i enjoy very much. i am a team player which is important for any office to run effectively. the hardest part of my job is losing patients due to their illness. the most enjoyable part of my job is the smiles i am able to put on my patients faces at the end of their visits.
Senior Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 8, 2015
I love working at NY Presbyterian. Patient and employee satisfaction is high. They do everything they can to keep everyone happy. It is a great balance and the hospital is great. I would stay if I could, but I need to be closer to home for my baby and my growing family.
Unit Assistant Secretary (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 26, 2015
A place for growth and development. An emotional yet rewarding environment that teaches me who I am as a person. I am exposed to people, collegues, patients of all ethnicity, race, environment, religion.My environment is very fast pace, critial thinking is a must and patience is a plus. The reward is knowing that I helped in saving a life or I helped make a patient or family member happy and satisfied with they stay.
Certified Surgical Technologist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 9, 2015
The only hesitancy I have is that in the higher pressure areas of the OR, as a CST, you are more likely to get stuck in cases due to lack of relief...which is great for OT, but bad on those days you just want to go home on time. Otherwise...they take care of their staff very well.
Intern (Former Employee) – Pre Surgical Testing Unit – June 27, 2015
As you enter the facility, there was always something to print or fax to surgeons and other doctors. In addition, print patient bands to place around the patient's wrist. I learned to keep up with the fast paced environment as well as manage my time. My co- workers were always willing to lend a helping hand if I needed and I was willing to do the same. There was lots of team work in my facility. I loved all the aspects of my job. The most enjoyable for me was interacting with the patients.
Volunteer for the Pre-Med Program (Current Employee) – New York, NY – June 19, 2015
This is an educational experience, and I am able to meet new people as well as learn new things in this area. The people are very helpful, and you get to meet new people and speak with the nurses and patients.
housekeeper (Former Employee) – 622 w.168th street – June 4, 2015
good place to work but a bad atmosphere when dealing with co-workers. very local. a fun and great place to work. little to no room to move up. management was not great at all. hardest part of the job was dealing with the co workers. most enjoyable was meeting new people and the diversity the job provided.
Clinical Data Analyst (Current Employee) – Queens, NY – June 3, 2015
Job is decent, but not what I was promised. Management started to stray from their words and it goes against my beliefs. They are taking way more tasks than they can accomplish with the amount of staff we have and expect too much from us with no sort of reward what so ever.

Biomedical Technician (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 22, 2015
There is a reason they are consistently rated number one in ?NY and on top top 10 in the nation. NYP successfully created a great structure where an employee does not feel like it is a dead end job, hard work and dedication is always rewarded.
Great work environment and room for growth.
Management sometimes seems bit clueless and some have managed to be rather persnickety.
