Physician Relations Liaison (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – November 14, 2017
The Catholic organization that succeeded on the values of joy, care & respect over the last 150 years no longer perform or demonstrate those values in the care and treatment they provide to patients and family members or to the staff. Providence is preparing for a major change, which led administration to reduce staff and services. The organizations presents such uncertainties, it eliminates positions/employees abruptly without notice. I enjoyed working at Providence for 11 out of the 13 years I've served. The changes in leadership throughout the last six years has caused overall decline in the organization's success and rating.
Wonderful mid-level and lower-level staff
The lack of respect leadership has for staff, decisions are made based on personal feelings instead of professional oulook.
Registered Nurse (RN) Oncology Certified (Former Employee) – Medford, OR – November 13, 2017
Started as a new grad from Nursing school working nights, when a day shift position became available I was able to go from 12 hour nights to 8 hour days. Continual learning is encouraged and always lots of in-services. The company encourages you to advance in your career and get certified in what ever area you would like and you are rewarded in many ways. Was guided to become charge nurse and when that position became available I was promoted.
Lots of learning gained more experience working with the Dr's and other disciplines. Had to become more organized and able to multi task. The employees there are very professional and encouraging.
Had several managers while there from ones that were great to ones that used the position as a stepping stone to other jobs.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 10, 2017
Case management on medical floor. The staff on the floor and in the case management department were wonderful to work with. The teamwork and camaraderie was excellent. Working with the patients trying to ensure they had a safe discharge plan was the most enjoyable part of the job. The most difficult part is trying to come up with plans for patients who may not have insurance or funds for their medications etc...

Buyer (Current Employee) – Renton, WA – November 10, 2017
I enjoy working with my customers and vendors. There is not a lot of flexibility with your schedule and it is more hands on training. People are extremely nice to work with and you feel like you make a difference.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Burbank, CA – November 4, 2017
I worked at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center and I can not say anything bad about this place, everyone is treated special employeers and patients and visitors. This is the best place to work and with the benefits of course even better.
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – San Pedro, CA – November 3, 2017
I was injured at work and was never properly treated after becoming injured. I worked until it was no longer an option. Manager just kept telling me to hang in there until it was too late. She did not care about my pain and future health. I am still suffering 4 years later.
Materials Management Manager (Current Employee) – Olympia, WA – November 2, 2017
The ACA is affecting most health care systems and Providence is no exception. Lots of cost-cutting initiatives and emphasis on efficiency improvements. Problem is that they are impacting ability to maintain service. Great mission statement if we could get back focused on it.
Nurse Practitioner (Former Employee) – Lacey, WA – November 2, 2017
It depends on clinic you work for, they all have different managers. Mine was awful! She had no managerial experience and was constantly micromanaging both your time and clinical practice. Felt very invasive.
