Good place, nice people
Behavioral Health Specialist (Current Employee), Pueblo, CONovember 3, 2014
It's a nice place to work if you are full time. PRN's like me on the other hand have to work pretty undesirable hours such as nights and weekends, which is fine if you don't have children or a family.

The job is hard at first until you figure out the routine and then it's pretty cool. Co-workers are helpful. Management lacks something to be desired, – more... they don't seem to ever get anywhere.

Hardest part of the job is making sure you have a thick skin, the patients can be difficult.

Most enjoyable part of the job is facilitating groups. – less

Steady work crazy days
Patient Transportation (Current Employee), Pueblo, COJuly 26, 2014
Pros: discounted lunches
Cons: short breaks/ lunch
Steady work and a lot of it to go around, during the busy times it is non stop and there is a good chance of overtime. This of course depends on the department. The problem here is that it is hard to connect with coworkers because there may be too much work.

A great stepping stone:
Physician Suport Service (Former Employee), Pueblo, COJune 29, 2014
Pros: working with electronic medical records, many differant fields
Cons: to many managers, changes in office function
I really didn't have a typical day, I was a float, so my day was different every day. I was exposed to several different fields of medicine, form surgery to family practice. To go with the diversity in work I also had a handful of managers. Working with all these different managers was challenging at times, however was also rewarding. I got to work – more... with some of the best medical staff out there. Which was a terrific learning experience for me. The most challenging part was that I would learn how that doctor or office likes things, then I was moved to a new location. Although I did learn quite a-bit in different specialties and that I enjoyed. – less

Great team-work, never felt alone in critical situations
Staff Nurse (Former Employee), Pueblo, COMarch 27, 2014
Pros: team-work and high morale
Cons: long hours
I could not have worked in this high-acuity environment without the great team-work that was encouraged by the unit manager and various leaders. The hardest part of the job was the long hours, but that was balanced out by the opportunity to experience a complete day with patients and the time off between work days.

Excellent medical care for patients but staff is treated very poorly. Some departments are worse then others in terms of working. Alot of seasoned employees are leaving their postion because of the hostile enviroment.

Surgical Tech Intern (Former Employee), Pueblo, COFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: employee food discounts
Cons: as a prn job, there are no medical benefits (only for part time and full time employees)
A typical day involved focusing on the patients' well being and their families, first and foremost.
Given the high stress atmosphere of the hospital setting, it is daily humbling reminder of the value of health (mentally , physically and emotionally)
As I worked in 2 different departments (one administrative and one medical), I found that both extremes – more... always need to coexist in order to provide the best possible outcome for the most valued resource, the patient.
The hardest part of the job is the constant focus that needs to be placed in order to do the job at hand successfully and this as well was the most enjoyable part of the job from the sense of satisfaction in delivering a job well done. – less

Much turmoil
nurse (Former Employee), Pueblo, COFebruary 18, 2014
Pros: pay is fair, you will stay busy.
Cons: honesty is one of the hospital values, but it is not appriciated or acknowledged. doing a good job is not appriciated.
Its not what you know, its who you know , for any advancement.
Management is bloated and paralyzed,it is difficult to implement any new concept across the departments. Very little teamwork among different departments. Older coworkers are more professional and work oriented, younger ones more clannish and at ease.
The most enjoyable part of the job is – more... taking care of the patients and families. The most difficult part of the job is meeting or exceeding expectations of the patients. Poor training in all areas of the hospital, when new things are rolled out, make it extremely difficult to succeed and do a good job. – less

Accounting Clerk I (Former Employee), Pueblo, COJanuary 16, 2014
Parkview was a great place to work. Every day was a new adventure to learning something new. Everyone was always willing to help each other out. The hardest part of my job was leaving it. I loved working with my co-workers and management. I loved going into work and knowing I was going to learn something new each and every day. I loved that the company – more... listens to it's employees and always tries to find ways to accommodate the needs/wants. I loved that there were always new opportunities arising that allowed individuals to expand their knowledge and venture into new roles. – less

Miss working there!
Health Information Services Assistant (Former Employee), Pueblo, COJanuary 6, 2014
Pros: rewarding to help others
Cons: managment could be hard at times, but most are
I loved working at Parkview for two reason, 1 Parkview has a good reputation in town compared the the other hospitals, and 2 the staff and visitors are very friendly. It made it easy to give good customer service, but I liked that Parkview focused on giving good customer service as well as keeping everyone healthy. I used to work in the Medical Records – more... department, and loved it. The work was demanding at times, but was rewarding as well because you know you were helping others. The office environment is like any other. It was relaxed enough for you to breathe, but not enough to let you get lazy (which is good). I would re-apply if I ever move back to Colorado. – less
