Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – October 30, 2017
OSF is overall great to work for. They have great benefit packages and pay is fair. I loved having the opportunity to find my roots as a nurse. I discovered that I am not one that likes to work on the med/surg floor. They have great staff and management. Hospital work was not for me.
PATIENT CARE LIAISON (Volunteer) (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – September 7, 2017
Working here was a truly unique experience. The visionaries that created the company operate it with the same passion that they have put into the products themselves by focusing on the work-life balance of their employees, and creating a positive and relaxed work environment that still meets high demands and hard deadlines
Non-clinical (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – August 2, 2017
You have heard the phrase, "Before you tell me how to do my job, first, you have to know how to do my job". Unfortunately, you have people walking around with three piece suits and clip boards trying to look important and HR personnel working in directors positions who do not have a clue as how to run anything efficiently. Yet, these very same people will tell you how you are supposed to do your job even though they do not have the slightest idea of how to do so. The multi layers of management overseeing departments portrays the epitome of micro management and they refuse to let you do what you need to to be successful in your position. Identify a deficiency and you will be told it isn't in the budget. If you are looking for personal growth, this is not the place for you.
Senior Health Information Management Intern (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – July 7, 2017
The organization allowed me to practice coding hands-on and assisted me with career development activities. They helped me sign up for my RHIA and answered any questions I had. Everyone was so sweet and it was overall a great experience.
A typical day in the office could change depending on the calendar.
I updated Policy/Procedure policies for the Nursing Directors. I scheduled any meetings or appointments necessary for management. I attended and completed meeting notes when requested. Contacted personnel when needed for Administrator, Nursing Services or Medical Director. Completed forms for reimbursement for E.D. Physicians.
Learning much with medical terminology
No cons - had 4 child; child care costs to high to continue to work.
Cardiac Screening Assistant (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IL – January 20, 2015
The Center for Healthy Lifestyles at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center is a wonderful place to work. My co-workers are innovative and creative. They are always thinking of ways to help the employees and the community lead healthier lifestyles. A typical day of work includes entering data, managing personal wellness profiles, screening community members, and producing wellness challenges. I enjoy interacting with community members and diverse populations. The Center for Healthy Lifestyles strives for a healthier workplace and community.
Respiratory Therapist, RRT (Current Employee) – Bloomington, IL – August 19, 2014
A typical night at work is providing excellent patient care, following physician orders, administering respiratory care, and working as a team with all departments. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching someone that came into the hospital ill get better and go home.
Center for Healthy Lifestyles Intern (Former Employee) – Bloomington, IL – September 6, 2013
OSF is one of the best places to work. I was an unpaid intern and it was still one of the best experiences in my life. The women in my department were helpful and supportive with anything I needed. The management and my coworkers were a joy to work with.
