CT Technologist (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – April 30, 2017
MY day usually started at 10: AM, I would check my work e-mail and then I would check the Patient board to see what was to be scanned that day, I would usually do betwenn 15_20 exams a day with the most being 32 exams. I learned how to perform various CTA exams)as I came from a outpatient clinicl with a scanner not capable of performing CTAs},Management was okay, the controlled the cultur in the number of exams being done, St. John's, being a Catholoc Hospital in the HSHS healthcare system had as their Core Values; Respect, Care, Competence, and Joy. The fast pace is the hardest aspect, but I was able to handle. The people I worked with were the best, everyone helped everyone. ;
Evening Shift Security Supervisor (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – March 6, 2017
At that time, neighborhood could have been considered hazardous. Job responsibilities varied based on shift assignment. My experience, the Hospital Sisters cared about their patients and visitors. Additionally, they could be a direct asset in a potentially bad situation.
Not as progressive as needed considering all the healthcare changes
Radiology Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – January 27, 2017
I liked it that it had a strong spiritual angle to the whole operation. It was also what made it hurt for us who got laid off because we were blindsided with no opportunity to possibly transfer to other departments. I was surrounded by good people in the workplace. I'm not sure how engaged upper management was!?
Always ready to help the needy.
Didn't adjust/change with the times. It was getting left behind compared to the local competition.

Central Supply Technician (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – January 13, 2017
Here I help with hospital supplies and equipment. When used equipment would come in, it was my job to clean the equipment and get them ready for the next time. I would also help to deliver the supplies and equipment that the nurses and doctors would request.
Pre Access Services Representative (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – December 5, 2016
Poor management leads to overworked,underpaid employees with limited resources. Requests of any employee working off site are ignored by those responsible for responding to those needs on the main campus.
patient account rep (Current Employee) – springfield, il – October 27, 2016
I have worked here for 3 1/2 years. I like what I do but there is no room for advancement. The managers have never performed my duties so they do not always understand how things work. And when you try to explain it they do not comprehend and make you feel like you are the incompetent one. There is a lack of recognition. Employees do not get any type of recognition for doing a good or great job. Everyone gets the same raise weather you give 150% or just 50% effort. My coworkers are great for the most part but there are a few that are just lazy and do not perform their job well and there are never any consequences. We are not in the hospital anymore and our fax machines/copiers are all way out of date. We have stacks of paper correspondence everywhere and no scanning system. If you are not directly involved in patient care then they tend to forget about you and not care to give you the tools to do your job properly.
I only volunteered here for a few months but I loved it. It did get boring at times but after awhile it was fun if you were engaging with the patients and workers there. You're not allowed to have your phone on you but I did anyways and they didn't really mind. As long as I was able to not be distracted by it and was able to still help the patients. I volunteered in the Emergency Room and so I saw a lot of people come in very injury and with just a slight cough. They were all pretty optimistic though about their conditions. I would come back and volunteer here again someday when i'm not so busy.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – March 29, 2016
Unfortunately, this hospital is a nightmare to work for. Overwhelming nurse/patient ratios, terrible management, and severely understaffed units. I wish there was a good thing I could say about having worked here.
Nurse Technician (Former Employee) – Springfield, IL – August 24, 2015
During my years of being with St. John's I've enjoyed every day working there, especially with the crew of the 6th and 7th floor. There were days that it was hectic, but at the end of it we all pull through.
