Family care Center RN (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – October 21, 2016
The unit staff are great and hard working. It is a very small unit with decor from the 70's. Management doesn't support the staff very well. The current manager does not understand the policies of AWWON and therefore the policies are broken. Most of the time the staff is put in dangerous situations and are expected to float during emergencies. The patients are great to work with and the unit staff work together.
Benefits are good. Great unit staff
Lunch breaks are viewed by the hospital charge as being lazy.
Senior Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – October 17, 2016
Healthcare is a tough industry going through some ground-shaking transitions right now. Mission-dedicated leadership makes all the difference at Providence. However that dedication needs to be present at every level of leadership. Wherever a leader is more focused on bottom lines than easing people's way, everyone underneath them suffers.
The good leaders are really really good and inspire the best in those who work for them.
Correspondence Clerk (Former Employee) – Torrance, CA – October 12, 2016
I had 10 years total with this company and was very happy in all of that time, I was able to learn many aspects of the medical billing field though careful training each time a new system was being applied. I miss it very much.
I absolutely loved this job and working for Providence
Admitting Registrar (Former Employee) – Seaside, OR – October 7, 2016
I would rate Providence Seaside a 10 all around. It was very refreshing to work at a facility that actually cared about their patients. It made my job easier. Infact when I transferred from working in the emergency department to the clinic, my usual patients wrote the hospital administrator stating they demanded me back with a petition of over 100 patients. Of course they didn't know it was by my choice. But it sure made me feel good.
Compassionate and caring. Very understanding of problems or illness.
Social Worker (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 5, 2016
Mission and Values of Providence ElderPlace are really great. Working with the participants was the highlight of this position. Very bureaucratic agency. Good ideas are not immediately implemented, but taken to a committee, then ultimately decided upon by the higher-ups.
Lead Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Providence Medical Group – October 4, 2016
Providence was founded by the sisters of Providence. It is truly unfortunate that now it is lead by un-compassionate leadership who has no regard for their workers who have direct care with patients. Not only do they have some of the worst director with no integrity, and leave their direct reports with no support, but have no second though putting their direct reports in front of fire trying to meet unrealistic expectations. Providence Medical Group is the worst example of this situation. Due to these situations, I would not allow my family go to Providence for care, please reconsider working for this organization.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – September 29, 2016
Working here was awesome . People you work with are always smiling and in good moods. Very fast but yet safe paced facility's . Anytime you needed to ask someone something . There would always be someone to help you.
Dietary Specialist (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – September 28, 2016
A typical day at work was very repetative, did the same thing every day. I learned alot about nutrition and using different nutrtion programs on the computer to keep track of the hundreds of patient's diets at the hospital to help them keep on track with their specific diet. The management was very poor. They were not good at communicating with staff members, many things were heard by word of mouth from coworkers.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA and olympia WA – September 23, 2016
Doctors think they are God, nurses are bitter chunky women with short hair who sip syrupy coffees all day and yell at patients then call security to fix their dilemmas.
I worked at swedish medical center in seattle and at st peters in lacey. Swedish was pretty racist from leads all the way to supervisors and they had their clicks while management twiddled their thumbs. Horrible work culture.
St peters is a mess. Thats hillbilly nation over there. My biggest thing was i was a Lead at swedish but transfer to st peters and they have a guy whos only been in security 6 months versus my 6 years on how to do security it was extremely frustrating , plus all the nit picking. Im a quiet guy and do my job they even would complain about me being too quiet and not enthusiatic enough. Bunch of slave masters.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Walla Walla, WA – September 22, 2016
I enjoyed my experience and the people who I met. Very organized and easy place to go to work each day. Assisting team members and physicians and working individually was a part of working in Urgent Care I found exciting and fun, not to mention rewarding.
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – September 21, 2016
Most people that I have worked with in Providence Health and services have been very welcoming and Kind. People Like to collaborate and work together. At times it can be a little too much talk and not enough action... it talks a long time for things to get through the system. The hiring process was very overwhelming to me, you will have email after email with all kinds of task they need you to complete before being hired. The nice part, is when you are in with providence they do like to hire/ promote within and make the transfer very easy for you.
Friendly, promote within
Hiring process is long and overwhelming, takes a long time to put plans into action.
difficult place to work. Management doesn't provide employees the tools necessary to succeed within the company.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – September 16, 2016
Not an excellent place to work. I love taking care of patients and maintaining a positive environment of care, that's not always what management prioritized. My fellow medical assistants were all good people. My trainers weren't given the proper tools to train me. They even complained to the management and nothing was done. I really, really enjoyed working with the Doctors and being involved somewhat in patient care plans. Drawing labs and doing other small procedures were enjoyable as well.
Short breaks, management not available to help employees.
