Volunteer (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – May 29, 2014
The volunteer work was fun and the people there were quite nice. They give you meals for you work and the meals are decent. It was a very nice experience and the hours can accumulate very quickly if that's all you are doing it for. The staff, while very busy considering its a hospital, were very nice to the volunteers and myself when we came into their department to work.
HIM Specialist (Current Employee) – Oakwood, GA – July 25, 2017
So far NGHS has been a great company to work for probably one of the best companies so far. The pay isn't all that great at all especially when it comes to what all they expect from you and I don't think it matters in certain departments if you have a degree or not your pay still doesn't change, well at least mine hasn't. I think you also have to take the initiative yourself to learn new skills and to inquire about it because so far it hasn't been pushed to employees to do that or to expand their knowledge. As with a lot of other companies management can be picky and micro-managed for whatever reason and can improve especially when it comes to reaching out and talking with employees and treating everyone fairly across the board. I'd still recommend NGHS as a place to work for especially as a stepping stone to get your foot in the door in healthcare.
Principal Trainer (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 19, 2017
Northeast Georgia Health Systems is a work place dedicated to their patients and employees. The company offers a variety of benefit packages and classes focused on employee advancement. I highly recommend any open positions with this company.
Senior Application Analyst (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – June 28, 2017
The IT department is top heavy in management and not enough worker bees. Of all IT departments I've worked at from both large national organizations to smaller companies, the NGHS IT department is the most unstructured fly by the seat of your pants department I've seen.
Be prepared to leave NGHS with the same skills you brought, they hire talent, but don't do anything to develop it. Extremely poor education and new hire process.
Growing company but sometimes hard to promote within, some departments have bad management
Surgery Scheduler (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – June 7, 2017
I believe and like the company but some departments are hard to work in due to poor management and physicians that don't acknowledge the staff with respect, it can bring down the office moral and high turnovers.
can charge you meals to your payroll deduction, as well as prescriptions, low rx cost at the employee pharmacy
yearly compensations, need to be easier to promote within
Registered Nurse in med surg unit (Current Employee) – Braselton, GA – May 19, 2017
at northeast Georgia hospital, the day shift nurses lack team work ethics and communication skills. and the techs do not help their nurses, the nurse is responsible for vital signs and blood sugar check.
RN (Current Employee) – Gainesville campus – April 25, 2017
After working for over 20 years in the nursing market in Athens/Augusta/Atlanta, I came to work at NGMC-Gainesville in 2016. I've been so pleased to find a practice environment with complex patients in this relatively quiet town. We have a busy open-heart surgery program, and we get quite a bit of level I and level II trauma patients. I like the team of nurses I work with in critical care, and my boss seems to care about me as a person. I would recommend this hospital to anyone looking for a challenging position in a busy ICU.
good nursing teamwork
if you are used to the city, you might not like living here
Director of Managed Care (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – April 15, 2017
I was recruited away from NGHS to join the start-up BlackfinIQ. I loved the people and the culture. My direct supervisor and VP were great people who managed a great deal with little resources. I was proud to have been a part of that team.
Unit Secretary (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – March 18, 2017
This was the worst experience I have ever had as an employee. I felt as if I worked with elementary school aged children.The manager hired me on a schedule that required working every other weekend but changed it to every weekend after I started orientation. This does not follow hospital policy but HR never enforced the policy. I walked out after 4 weeks and wouldn't go back if they quadrupled my salary , gave me a company car and provided housing. It's that miserable.
Core Tech (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – February 1, 2017
Continuum allows you to get to know a patient on a personal level! You are the face that patient sees when they wake up and sometimes the face they see before they fall asleep! The sweet lady I had the pleasure of taking care of will forever be my best friend!
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – January 27, 2017
Have worked here for over five years with great personnel. Friendly staff and overall good environment to work in. Haven't had any problems except career advancement issues where the manager was biased against the school I attended. Workplace culture is pretty diverse. Hardest part of my job was physical labor and stress. Most enjoyable part of the job was the patients and their personalities.
