Community hospital with limited health care
Imaging Technologist (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 6, 2014
Pros: technically updated with the newest radiography equipment. including the pacs system.
Cons: sub par department management and a human resources department that does not care for the employees.
Norwegian American Hospital is a place I enjoyed working at. I not only worked there but also did some of clinical training there while in the imaging program at Wilbur Wright College. I also lived in the area near where the hospital is located. Unfortunately my director at the time believed me and my co-worker were too old to be working the second – more... shift by ourselves. And, replaced us with younger technologists. All my co-workers enjoyed my company and expressed their sincere gratitude in having me as co-worker on the second shift. The hardest part of the job came in the last days of my employment there. I could neither say or do anything to keep me employed there. Things were happening in the department of x-ray that went unattended other techs and the director were involved in suspicious and unprofessional activity. Of which me and my co-worker were no part of. Yet we two were the only ones singled out for not conforming to their ways. – less

poorly managed hospital
manager (Former Employee), ChicagoSeptember 21, 2014
Pros: hospital mission
Cons: hospital management
Senior management team doesn't fully support and equip front line to get the best job done for the patient. Management only cares about covering their own button not working together to make NAH a better hospital. Incredibly high turnover of management and nursing.

Medical Assistant Volunteer (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 29, 2013
Pros: great professional experience
A typical day would be my assignment to a medical office. Perforn patient vitals and document the results in a chart. Meet and greet patients. Schedule patients appointment. Set up the exam room and check equipment and supplies.

My co-wokers are very pleasant and happy to serve patients. My co-workers and I work as a team to resolve office schedules, – more... for example when office staff are on vacation or ill. We will agree to a change in schedule to accomdate all patients that are scheduled.

The most enjoyable part of the job is patient satisfaction. – less

Terrible Place to work unless you have zero experience and do not care for shorted pay.
CNA (Former Employee), Chicago, ILOctober 11, 2013
Pros: nursing staff
Cons: management, disorginization
This place was ridiculous. They have no concept of management or equality. They are lucky to not have already been shut down do to lawsuit, as there are numerous infractions and violations on a daily basis. They do not believe in supporting their employees, even though the employees give countless hours for them.
