Fun and creative mind looking for more than a Job
Perioperative Service Coordinator (Current Employee), St. Helena, CASeptember 22, 2014
Pros: family feel, free lunches, employee recognition
Cons: lower paid than most hospitals in the area, heavy work load
I love to come to work and it did not feel like a job. At St. Helena I have learned that working in a place that changes lives is investing in the future. I love the management team that place people in positions to be successful. I love working with my coworkers because these take their job seriously but still know how to have fun. The hardest part – more... of the job is the limited resources available to do your job. But St. Helena Hospital feels like a big family. – less

Awful, awful, horrible palce.
Clinical Lab Scientist (Former Employee), St HelenaMarch 21, 2014
Pros: none besides cerner lis/emr
Cons: poor training and competency, old equipment, horrible nasty dirty facility
Decent salary, 1st rate benefits but provincial, xenophobic, backstabbing coworkers who complain about everything and fear everyone who is new. Zero support from management, plan to fail. Northern CA hospitals seem to only want to continuously hire and fire in every department, and St Helena hospital is particularly bad. If you are white and a certain – more... age and male.... Just don't go here. If you are young, female, Asian, and willing to accept abuse, this is just the place for you, especially if you are a member of the Adventist organization too. – less

A facility with improved technology to complete evaluations. Great place to work and grow professionally. Limited opportunities due to the per diem

Pros: relaxed environment
Cons: not called in enough to work
8-4PM
Evaluations and write up 1 hour
Daily Treatments about 30 minutes
Learned how to produce an evaluation through hospital's record software.
Wonderful, supportive, co-workers
Most difficult aspect of the job was learning to navigate new software, and writing OT orders for physicians approval.

Family Oriented Place to work. Very fast pace.
Assistant to Director of Marketing (Former Employee), Vallejo, CAJuly 6, 2013
Pros: great clients
Cons: short breaks
Great place to work. I learned to have patience. The hardest part of my job was getting the Physicians to call back in a timely manner. The most enjoyable was getting to know my fellow co-workers and their families.

Interesting work, kind co-workers, worked independently
Credentialing Associate (Former Employee), Saint Helena, CAJune 20, 2013
Pros: time flexibility, i.e. if i had a doctors appt i was allowed to make the time up by either staying late, or coming in eary.
Cons: lack of communication with departement heads, lots of turn over.
In my capacity as a payer credentialing associate it was my job to on-board our doctors and mid-levels with our contracted insurance companies, including governmental contracts. The hardest part of my job was trying to lock down the doctors for their signatures. Everything was time sensitive so it was imperative I get the documents filed by a certain – more... date. My co-workers were very kind and supportive, but our positions were completely independent from each other. The best part of my job was being involved with, and getting to know all the different employees in our various practices. They were a great group of managers and support staff. – less

Wonderful place to work with free gym membership!!
Executive Assistant to Chief Nursing Officer (Former Employee), St. Helena, CAMarch 6, 2013
Pros: free lunches when we had hospital wide meetings. :)
Cons: very few breaks. no time to take one!!
I loved working at St. Helena Hospital! The people are amazing to work with. It became like a family to me. I loved each and every employee that I worked with. It was a joy to go to work. I learned so very many things working in Administration and Nursing Administration. Each meeting started with prayer which set the tone of the meetings. The hardest – more... part of the job was trying to handle multiple hospital needs besides St. Helena's. It was done with grace and I eventually was able to use a volunteer to help with some of the work load. What a gift!!
I think the most enjoyable part of my job was the wonderful people I worked with and came across every day. Each day I awakened to the wonderful thought of "I get to go to work today at St. Helena!" My job was cut back in 2011 otherwise I would still be there. My heart is still there with the people. – less

Some good, some bad
Nurse (Former Employee), CAJanuary 2, 2013
Pros: a lot of nice people
Cons: bad management in some dept's.
The HIM/Coding Dept. is great! The management of the Nursing and HIM/Coding Dept's. however are just plain awful.
Unfortunately in the hospital overall there is so much nepotism that it's difficult to advance even if you work hard. Some of the laziest people keep their jobs year after year...it's a shame.

Good place to work other than team work
CNA (Former Employee), Saint Helena, CASeptember 27, 2012
My Co-workers weren't the best at working together. I did not always get the help that I needed. Most enjoyable part of my job, however, would have to be the pure enjoyment of being able to help patients.

Security Guard (Former Employee), St Helena, Ca.August 30, 2012
Pros: working with people and diverce duties

You start your day doing one thing and it was something different all of the time. I really enjoyed working with the patients, and the staff. Worked sometimes in the emergency room which was quite interesting.

Thee Best Hospital, I have ever worked for
CNA/TCU (Former Employee), Deer Park, CAAugust 13, 2012
Pros: i think the adventist health care system, believes in treating the whole person, not just the injury or disease, and i learned to eat more healthy, since they have non meat products, and healthy fooods, also can swipe id badge, to have meal deducted from paycheck
Cons: i only have one, they don't utilize lvn's within the hospital, and i would do anything to go back there to work
I would start my day by getting report and doing rounds, taking vital signs. I have worked in many different hospitals in California, this is the best, the most serene atmosphere, and the staff is great to work for, no matter what department. I remember the first day working there, management and co-workers, thanked me for coming to work there and if – more... there was anything that they could do to make me feel more welcome, which I just was in shock, since I got a pay raise and they had state of the art equipment, which made my job easier, and I had less patients, I felt I should be thanking them. The hardest part is getting attached, and watching them fly the coup, but the most enjoyable part was knowing they were leaving because they were better in health. – less

Manager (Former Employee), Saint Helena, CAJuly 10, 2012
Pros: good insurance
Cons: lack of leadership, lack of professionalism and poor work environment
St. Helena Hospital could be a good place to work if they let ALL of management go and bring in new management to give a much needed revival to the hospital.

Forward thinking organization that rewards hard work.
Certified Nurse's Assistant (Current Employee), St. Helena, CaliforniaApril 18, 2012
I have worked for St. Helena Hospital for nearly two years. In that time the management has turned what used to be a rural outpost into a thriving destination hospital. Management at St. Helena Hospital is forward thinking and innovative. They take care of their staff who all work very hard.

St. Helena Hospital serves a mostly indigent population of – more... Lake County. The staff provides non-judgmental thorough care in a calm and peaceful atmosphere. I am very proud to work there. – less

Non-judgemental? Hardly the case with this place. Hopefully they have taken care of the management problems that was affecting this hospital.
