I learned much about new technologies,and management treated their employees respectfully
Medical Technologist (Former Employee) – Towson, MD – May 22, 2016
I enjoyed working here for several reasons, Management was fair and all of the company benefits were one off the best, for the most part my co-workers were team players and easy to work with, the company was very good about giving performance evaluations which helped communications
Great company benefits and worker respect from management
Raises were very infrequent, and often required to work double shifts
Emergency Department Patient Care Area Volunteer (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – November 12, 2015
Although it was difficult volunteering in the ER room, there was a lot to learn. Making rounds while ensuring all of the rooms were fully stocked was difficult. It was interesting learning about types of diseases just by observing the symptoms. For example, yellowing of a patient's skin indicated problems with liver. It was interesting to know to know as soon as code blue was called the entire team of nurses, doctors and ED tech gathered up together to help saves of many patients. Code blue indicated cardiac arrest. There were a lot of sepsis alerts. Even though a lot of precautions were needed, the doctors wore their gown, masks and gloves to observe the patients. It was such a tremendous experience to have.
Office Manager (Current Employee) – Yonkers, NY – November 3, 2015
A easy paced work environment with a great supportive staff which includes, RN, SW, clerical and administration. One of the greatest Home Care Agency that is located in Yonkers, NY. Our staff cares about patient quality and safety.

Planning relocation back to NYC/NJ area due to husband's job and seeking job in Day Surgery/Outpatient location.

Nurse (Current Employee) – Houston Tx – October 23, 2015
Turnover at Heights location very high. No appreciation of staff. Nursing management harsh, speak in disrespectful way in front of others. No staff input. Attitude that staff can be replaced , retention not important.
RN (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 18, 2015
One reviewer indicated that the hospital was bought out of bankruptcy. I do not believe this is accurate. Their parent company was indeed bankrupt, but I believe the doctors took over and they were doing quite well financially. The insurance was incredible, PTO was very competitive, and there was a family atmosphere. Unfortunately, IASIS bought the hospital and promptly made it a bad to horrible place to work--they combined sick/vacation leave to PTO and reduced the combined PTO to less than the original vacation leave; insurance changed for the worse; and at one point they took away the guaranteed 401K match that was $1:$1 for the first 5% then later made it $0.25:$1. A company that cares about its employees would never do this.
imaging (Former Employee) – downtown – September 29, 2015
This company was bought out of bankruptcy. CFO only cares about their bottom line and making profits. They have removed almost all managerial employees over the past year, leaving one or two incompetent overworked mangers to do handle the jobs of those laid off. They run understaffed and leave those employee who are working in an unsafe environment at risk of jeopardizing their licenses. In turn patient care is poor and patient treatment and safety is not a priority. Also they require too much from employees. Do not pay benefits to part time workers putting in over full time hours, including large amounts of on-call. May be good option for a desperate employee, not a place you'd want to stay very long.
Learned how to close an office and open two offices from the beginning.
Office Coordinator/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – September 19, 2015
Was the medical assistant for a Neurologist, an office coordinator and medical assistant for a family doctor and a neurosurgeon. Learned to operate all office machines, order all office and medical supplies and schedule surgeries. Answered telephones, directed calls and took messages for the family doctor and neurosurgeon.
STAFF NURSE ON BEHAVIORAL HEALTH UNIT (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – August 30, 2015
Nurse/patient ratio of 8 patients; learned computer charting, and managing meds and treatments of many different patients and psychiatric diagnoses. Those detoxing; those having trachs and gastrostomy feedings, along with the behavioral issues, etc. My co-workers were organized and helpful to work with; the hardest part of the job was to learn the correct/most helpful response to a psychotic patient. The most enjoyable part was to see a patient become so much better, and back to their former personality, i.e. in the case of electroshock having a very beneficial effect.
Those patients getting better, and families getting them back
Patients who would not get better, and families being in despair
