professional and caring place to work, learn, and advance in job placements.
Nursing Unit Clerk (secretary) (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – October 29, 2017
Everyday is never the same as the day before, it could be calm and easy or it could be busy and chaotic. You never know what you are walking into but it makes the days go by faster and even when its very busy its a huge learning experience. Management is very understanding and works with you and your needs The hardest part of the job for me is the long hours but it pays off in the end. The most enjoyable thing for me is honestly the people who I work with, they help you get through the day.
The managers are willing to throw you under the bus
Pharmacy Tech (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – October 17, 2017
Despite good benefits, pay, and vacation time I wouldn't stay in the department I was in. The managers never allow you to take vacations if you don't have enough seniority. Select staff are untouchable no matter how wrong they are. There is a lot of backstabbing involved. Professional courtesy is a myth. In our department alone 5 people quit before they got fully trained.
Great pay and benefits
Bad attitudes, overworked, favoritism, can't take time off.
Guest Services/HR Representative (Former Employee) – Orange County, NY – October 14, 2017
I was a volunteer not a paid employee. The culture and work environment was very professional and structured. The volunteer department, however, was not as developed. Volunteer supervisors said they cared about all of their volunteers, but it did not seem that way. You were assigned to do grunt work that sometimes you were not even qualified for. Some days could be much more stressful than others when having to deal with emergencies. Employees you worked for were friendly, but took advantage of you sometimes. On the other hand, Management in various departments were very friendly and wanted you to feel comfortable. Even as a volunteer I learned so much about working in a professional environment.
Environmental Services (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – October 9, 2017
Love working here. supervisors are great. Everyone in this hospital is very nice and so full of love and caring characters. The only reason i am leaving is because i have my career now and its time to move on to better things.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – September 30, 2017
There is always something new to learn; most of the doctors are willing to teach; most of the bosses are encouraging yet stern and fair. Pay is good in my opinion but there are very few true full time positions. They do however allow you to work up.
Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – September 13, 2017
The only complaints that I've heard is that there is a lack of equipment when they are needed which is true. Its difficult for the Nursing Assistants and Nurses to get supplies needed for their job tasks
Clinical Nursing Supervisor (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – September 10, 2017
At ORMC I cover critical care and Medical/surgical units and because it is a relatively large hospital a typical day is filled with issues requiring immediate resolution. Through the leadership classes offered here I have learned a lot about management. The most difficult part of the job is staffing, with the many call outs, and the most enjoyable part of the job is successful resolution of patient issues. .
Very competitive, minimal opportunities for advancment
Patient Transport (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – August 17, 2017
Never enough staff, emergency department is constantly overflowing, transport requests keep coming and coming when there are only 4 transporters for the entire hospital. Management doesn't care and everyone knows it. Working here has left me burnt out and resentful. The only thing that matters here is ORMC's budget and milking patients for money. Stay away and find a better working environment because this place isn't it.
Technologist (Former Employee) – NY – August 14, 2017
Culture is unsupportive and back-stabbing Management is an absolute mess with manager having no clinical background in said department No feedback or criticism provided Many examples of standards of care not being followed Completely understaffed which results in overworked, tired individuals creating an unsafe environment for the patients
no breaks, no feedback or instruction provided, back-stabbing culture, no direction, unsafe environment for patients and staff
Certified Rehabilitation Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – August 13, 2017
Rehabilitation is a specialty field that ORMC undertook several years ago with amazing results and continued progress. I was also fortunate enough to have worked within the organization under another role which was the quality improvement coordinator; great learning experience.
Unit Clerk / ER Tech (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – August 11, 2017
I was given the opportunity to advance and given paid training. Once hospital merged it dampened the patient care. This institution black list you for any wrong doing 10years in the medical field I have down the drain no other hospital will hire me. Be mindful security director is out to make a name for himself. I now have a misdemeanor courtesy of that gentleman. They took what little I had and I had to pay for everything and the court fees. Worst time of my life
Paid training and education
Short staffed long waits. Barely any breaks for yourself
Student Nurse (Former Employee) – Middletown, NY – July 30, 2017
Orange Regional Medical Center has a very good program for student nurse. The staff were very helpful during my training. As a student nurse, I learned a lot working alongside the dedicated nurses and doctors at the hospital.
Great place to work for experience in patient care.
Progressive Care Unit (PCU) Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Middletown, NY – July 17, 2017
Orange Regional Medical Canter is a great place for medical work experience. the work environment is respectful and you feel like part of the team. Everyone works well as a unit in an interdisciplinary team for the patient's overall well being. All work rules and expectations are clearly stated in the beginning. The hardest part of the job is the sometimes high patient ratio, but with the amazing teams at ORMC you are able to do your work with confidence. The most enjoyable part of my job was the building of relationships with staff and patients. It was worth going to work everyday because everyday was a new day with new people. Being able to make a difference, big or small, was the best part.
