MLT (ASCP) (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – February 11, 2017
Fresh out of MLT school I moved from Portland to Denver to begin my laboratory career. Lucky for me, that chapter began at Platte Valley. For 5 years I had the pleasure of working with some great people: techs, phlebotomists, supervisors, and an awesome lab director! I began working as a PRN and soon after landed a full-time position. The people in that lab were like a second family. Lots of laughter and arguing, but at the end of the day we looked out for each other. I gained so much valuable generalist experience: hematology, blood bank, chemistry, and microbiology. Several years ago I decided to return to school and enrolled in a MLT-to-MT program. My supervisors and lab director were supportive every step of the way! They helped me with course work and took time out of their busy schedules to proctor exams.. Everyone went above and beyond to help me succeed. After becoming a Medical Technologist in 2015, I moved out of state again, but I'll always have good memories of working at PVMC.
fair supervisors and lab director, fun co-workers, good food, great benefits
Patient Care Tech/Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Brighton, CO – January 2, 2017
One of the best things about working at this hospital are the patients. They are so sweet and so polite. You not only help the patient but you cultivate a relationship since it's such a small community.

Paramedic/ED Technician (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – December 7, 2013
Always busy work to be done, patient care, and stocking. There were always seminars on "work place bullying", mainly because it was such a problem there in several departments. There are security issues for employee safety that have yet to be corrected. The best part with working with some of the most amazing health care providers I've ever met, as well as fellow techs and nursing staff; its a very close knit group, and can be clique to work with.
as of Feb we always get our lunch breaks
you have a target on your back for most of your time employed there
RN BSN (Former Employee) – Kearney, NE – December 2, 2013
Typical day of work included providing RN duties in a clinical setting. Other duties required returning various test results via telephone, faxing documents, and contacting patients with questions and/or answers. I learned to manage my time, interact with co-workers in a team environment and the knowledge required of a nurse who works in neurology. Co-workers looked out for each other and were a pleasure to work with. The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the high volume of patients that my physician provided care for. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with and the fact that I was taking care of my patients in a positive and timely manner.
Surprised to see negative comments. Have been in medicine for 40 years, and this is the best employer I've ever had. Equipment is tops, commitment to sick people and their families is real and consistent, lots of opportunities to contribute ideas. No kidding, I can't complain.
Staff Nurse - Emergency Department (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – December 3, 2012
Small community hospital where it is hard to not know everyone. Trying to establish an identity in the community, but competition is moving into the area. Lacks surgical backup for any trauma or critically-ill cardiac patients. Most interesting cases get shipped to larger facilities.
Fairly new hospital, with old culture,sub-standard care.
MED TECH, RN (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – June 19, 2012
This was a very scary place to work. I saw very Mean and scary things at this hospital. Staff is Old. The old platte valley should have left their Old ways of doing procedures and business at the Old hospital. Instead its too many accidents and Too many "cover-ups" . Staff is not willing to learn Better ways to be more efficient, save money, Reduce accidents in or, er, l&d, get it! It's your Staff attitudes, too many not willing to do what's Right! I was told many times "don't you need this job" I left pv very dissolusioned. I drive pass pv on my Way to parker, where the staff here truly care, No games are tolerated here. I feel safe here. This hospital is in need of a good housecleaning. You are all in denile!
Small town feel that is a wonderful environment to work in.
RN (Current Employee) – Brighton, CO – April 28, 2012
Enjoyed the fact that you get to know everyone in that hospital and they treat you like family. I have never worked for a community hospital before and I recommend it to anyone. The financial compensation is the best I could find in the Denver area.
