Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – New Lenox, IL – March 16, 2017
Wide variety of patient caseload. Beautiful new hospital to work in. Documentation can slow progress and efficiency which management doesn't realize. Too much emphasis on patient/family satisfaction and more worried about them then their employees.
great co-workers, facility, and benefits
not enough management support or competative wages
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – New Lenox, IL – February 18, 2017
I have worked at Silver Cross Hospital for over 5 years now and it's without a doubt the most organized and well ran hospitals I've ever worked for. The management is very helpful, not overbearing or rude. Everyone has a greeting attitude and seems to enjoy working there. All the doctors are knowledgeable and kind, bou still have your a-holes doctors just like anywhere you go. The pay is good. The benefits are great!!
positive environment, productive and also great people to work with

A typical day of work at Silvercross hospital is sometimes can be overwhelming but with a great team, work turns out great for the day, you learn things everyday which is great for furthering your work skills and or education if I had to pick Job of the century it would be SilverCross hospital
Silver Cross at the time I worked for them as a staff nurse management did not support their staff.
Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Joliet, IL – January 23, 2017
I enjoyed working for Silver Cross Hospital. I had a patient load which I was aware of going into my work shift. Towards the end I did not have House Supervisor Support and my patient load was a 1:12 ratio with 1 aide and no unit secretary and 6 of the twelve were new admissions. I requested additional staff only to be told there were none. The safety of my patients were an issue that is why I left. I assume Silver Cross Hospital has changed it's policy since I have never heard of a similar situation in resent years.
Currently a Magna hospital, new facility, good physcians
Management did not support their staff and patient safety was an issue.

Working for this hospital was an awesome privilege. As a new grad, working here gave me a great wealth of job experience and motivation to want to pursue higher degree in nursing. Most enjoyable part was on the job training, and friendly co-workers. Cons was the lack of daytime hours for work/life balance.

I learned many things from working at Silver Cross Hospital. Being in the medical environment taught me how to handle stressful situations, deal with difficult people, work quickly and effectively, helped me appreciate life, and so much more.

Outpatient Coder (Former Employee) – Naperville, IL – February 12, 2016
I liked working at Silver Cross very much. The management team was very organized and supportive. I feel like I gained great coding work experience. My Lead was always very helpful and knowledgeable she had a great coding background. I loved that they gave me the opportunity to work from home. I was working thru a temp agency and unfortunately my contract was completed.
I made friends and I was very comfortable with all mangers and the employee's and I was able to work at my best at all times

The management was amazing at Silver Cross. I did have some family emergence that came about and I was able to make up my time with no problems. I never left any of my hours worked and they have worked with me, Again another company that I would have to continue to work for however it was only temp through Medical Staffing Network.
