Schizophrenic Leadership More Concerned About Plaques in Lobby than Patients
Manager (Former Employee) – Operations – October 7, 2013
There are some very smart, competent clinical people at this hospital. Unfortunately leadership is so driven for the wrong reasons. Is very cliquish. If you are not part of the Bedford/Chappaqua movers and shakers club you are on your own. The only reason they function is because they have money to burn. If they were held to the fiscal standards of any other small hospital, they would certainly fail in what they do. VP of Operations is a nightmare to work for. If you are seeking a low level or mid management level position, you should probably have a positive experience. If you have anything to do with operations and you want to work less than 7 days per week / 12 hours per day, look elsewhere.
When first joining the team, I loved it. Great atmosphere

Service Associate (Current Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – December 14, 2016
Managers never take the employees side during conflicts with other departments and play favorites with select employees. They unjustly write up and suspend people left and right as personal vendettas. The only thing keeping me there are the benefits. Very political place to work, I've never been so stressed in my life.
Staff Analyst (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – November 10, 2016
Although my time was limited there as a temp, I loved working there. When they say they are patient-centered, they really mean it. Every process behind the scene in every department has the endgame of creating not just great care, but also a pleasant stay for every patient.
Concierge (Current Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – August 9, 2016
Working at Northern Westchester is a great experience. The level of patient and family centered care is impeccable. I have never worked for a institution that is as innovative as Northern Westchester Hospital.
Cook (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – June 21, 2016
My job at NWHC was to go in and prep from my day or night, I then made lunch and dinner for patients. Some night were very busy and some night were busy slow. It was difficult to work with some of my co-workers, some were not properly trained and some did not care how the food came out, they were just their for a paycheck.
Histology Assistant (Current Employee) – Mt. Kisco, NY – May 3, 2016
I am responsible for accessioning all of the specimen from the operating room or other nearby out-of-hospital surgeries into the computer systems. It is important that every patient’s tissues are labeled and contained correctly. Throughout the day I gather tools and other materials for the histologists and gather slides or tissue samples for the pathologists upon their requests. As new slides from earlier in the day finish their specified staining processes, it is my job to take them to the pathologists so that they can diagnose what ailment the patient is suffering from.
Front Desk Receptionist (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – April 21, 2016
Promotions are based on favorites not skill High performers get stuck in their roles because their managers are afraid of losing them so they won't allow you to move to another role. No matter how many times you go to HR about your terrible manager, nothing happens.
Transfusion Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – February 18, 2016
Relaxed atmosphere although the work itself was high stress. Excellent working conditions and companions.Cafeteria was pretty average. The location was convenient to shopping, restaurants and bookstores. The best thing about it was the staff, the worst was the stress which is pretty typical in that field.

Case Picker (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – December 1, 2015
To be a part of Northern Westchester Hospital was a GREAT experience. I was always learning new things and equipment, the staff is very welcoming and supportive. For a new student just graduating out of Surgical Tech school I felt honored to be a part of a five star rated hospital.
NWH is a five star rated hospital, Overall the experience was great, i gained more knowledge of the surgical field and materials used, I always felt as if i was expanding my knowledge, learning something new everyday, co-workers and staff were very encouraging, NWH has ba warm and welcoming feel as soon as you enter the doors
The commute was a little difficult i lived 1 hour away, I also was working as a case picker and not as a Surgical Technician
Intern (Former Employee) – Mount Kisco, NY – November 28, 2015
Northern Westchester is a smaller hospital with a high volume of patients and extremely hard-working staff. They offer a highly diverse range of healing options from traditional Western medicine to integrative and holistic practices. The staff and patients seemed happy to be there. The doctors and nurses were very willing to help and teach.
Certified Hyperbaric Technologist (Current Employee) – Chappaqua, New York – September 15, 2015
At an outpatient clinic, you have the opportunity to really get to know your patient. For me, this is definietly the best part of the job. Working as a Certified Hyperbaric Technologist, you treat the patient everyday anywhere between 30-80 days. To some patients, this may feel like a lifetime to get through such treatments. I feel like it has been part of my responsibility to ensure they feel relaxed and addressing any needs they may have. However, it goes beyond that. When you are spending 4 hours a day for anywhere between 30-80 days, you get to know them more on a personal level. You look forward to when they came and in some cases, they look forward to coming as well. The patients we deal with sometimes are immobile or have to be confined to a chair for most of their day. They think of their treatment as social time, and often, sometimes so do we. I have found that this is what I enjoy the most. Whether you can make them laugh, or just listening to what they have to say can really make their entire day in some cases. This is the best feeling you could have as a healthcare provider. Its more then just delivering their treatment to a specific wound site, you are treating the whole person. That includes physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Sometimes all they need is someone to just listen. Its easier said then done but I have found that patients really appreciate this.
