Admissions Clerk (Former Employee) – St. Helena, CA – April 22, 2017
Sometimes it could be a little clique-ish. They are a Seventh Day Adventist Hospital and tend to stick to their own even though they hire outside of the Church as well as inside. At first, I felt like an outsider until I got to know people better and worked there or a while. I grew close to the staff and really missed them when I left. It is a learning hospital and I learned a lot about the profession that I wanted to go into because the staff knew I was going to school they took the time to explain things to me. The hardest part was keeping up with the fast paced environment and trying to cater to several people at one time. The most ejoyable part was being part of a team that thrived on giving excellent care.
Team environment, fast paced, variable experiences
Being the new person when most of them know each other from outside the hospital.
Not the place to work if you want a life and stable environment

CEO dishonest with little regard for HIPPA or ethics if it gets in the way of bringing in $$. Other "top"Administrative staff only concerned with their $$ and entitlement, as are most of the doctors. Good management and staff turnover is high: good managers who are concerned about their employees, working conditions, safety and ethics last a few months. Bad managers last forever and then get promoted. Most employees care about their work, but backstabbing is widespread as is nepotism and unethical practices, which are supposed to be against hospital policy, but the entitled, good ol' boys rule this loser hospital that is considered to be the worst entity in the Adventist Healthcare system; it is an honor earned.The pay is actually below low income standards for the area, while system CEOs, CFOs, VPs are big on touting the raises they give employees; like 3 or 4 cents an hour every few years. Stay away.
Pretty surrounding area.
Pay, management, work environment, no paid time off
Management (Current Employee) – St. Helena, CA – March 9, 2017
I have worked here for over 10 years and don't regret it one bit. If you want an opportunity to grow and challenge yourself this is the place! I have had opportunities here I never would have had working somewhere else. I have referred many people over the years to work here and all of them love working here and don't regret it!
Great Benefits, Great work environment, Gym Access

The place cares more about their money than the patients or employees. Lots of politics, make very poor financial decesions which affect the employees and their families, for example they laid 250 people off and two months later we all recieved raises. The pay is about 9-10 $ less than other hospitals in the area. They bend rules and break laws that are there to protect employees rights.
nice co workers family enviroment
management, pay, unfair, dont care or protect their employees
Friendly co-workers. Efficient customer service. Fast Paced Environment
Patient Concierge (Current Employee) – Saint Helena, CA – January 29, 2016
This company does a great job at serving it's patients with a friendly and positive disposition. Though there is little room for advancement and a disconnect between co-workers, it is a great environment to hit the ground running. You are able to put many different skills into practice. I came into work everyday knowing that I am in charge of myself. I knew what needed to be done an was given the freedom to complete it in any way I felt was most effective.

Mediocre department management. Supervisor vanity is all important, the more you praise,the better your treated. Women are second class citizens and usually looked down on.Large turn over of staff in 2015.
Beautiful location, non management workers friendly.
A great facility to learn about CABG, PCI, and shunts.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – St. Helena, CA – December 22, 2015
THe employees had their own job which made it convienent to exercise on breaks. Also it was a great teaching hospital. It was difficult with a low salary because I lived in Napa and my rent kept going up but my salary did not. The most enjoyable part of my job was meeting different people and making a positive difference in their life.
Nurse Coordinator (Current Employee) – Saint Helena, CA – October 6, 2015
This hospital is a rural hospital with a lot of wonderful people and in a beautiful setting. I have had to make a move and now looking for a new position closer to home. I work at a part time position but I am looking for a full time position. The most enjoyable part of my job are the patients and my co-workers. The hardest part of my job is not being full time to get all the task I need to get done in a day but doing my best to prioritize each day, all through the day! I truly enjoy being an RN and give my best to the co-workers and my patients.

Work was standard had a small team. Scheduling was not consistent. Did not like the drama in the work place. Learn from my coworkers. Enjoyed working independantly. When management was there they were good.
