Strictly business here. No foolishness from staff and managers here. Money is great. Schedule is stable. I have been around the blocks and it seem that this place has the greenest grass. Sometime you wonder ,"Is there life out there?" I have learned the answer to this question : No. The good life is here at St. Luke's Hospital. People are not as nice anymore. I feel safe working here. I can put out an honest day work and I won't receive any harassment from my boss and co-workers.
I will never quit working here. Management crew is the best in Houston Texas! You have to be physically fit to work here b/c there's lots of deliveries to be made. It is an hospital for adults meaning there will be lots of IV fluids to be delivered in the pyxsis. The legs, feet, and back muscle must be at there best! Don't think you can take your sweet time. Fast Moving place. There will be days without lunch. That is just how the ball rolls. Best part is that you can put out an honest day work and you will not get harass from anyone....Pharmacy management team and pharmacy staff are all great to work with. Strictly all about business here. No B.S.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – April 9, 2016
They have a very lovely volunteering program where I was given the opportunity to learn about many different facets of the medical related field.
I had gone into the program wanting to be a doctor in a hospital. While I was there, I had the opportunity to realize that being a doctor was not the right profession for me. I found that I don't actually like general hospital environments and that, while I did and still do want to help save lives, I don't actually like dealing with the patients.
So, in this way my experience with the volunteering program at St. Luke's closed the door on my inclination to be a doctor. However, where one door is shut, another is opened, and, through a seminar given by Hospital for it volunteers, it introduced me to the world of Biomedical Engineering, where I am much much happier.
So thank you St. Luke's! You've changed my life for the better.
very supportive co worker to work with. A typical day was very busy mostly with taking care of patients and documenting. The most important lesion is to treat each person as you will like to be treated, with love and care all the time. working together as a team always help a lot.
The management were not too supportive with our daily routine , maybe because themselves they had a lot in their plates.
The hardest part of my job was to see someone pass on due to illness that was preventable, and telling the family that they loved ones has gone.
The most enjoyable part of my job is to discharge patient knowing they know how to take care of themselves. Educating patient how to take care of themselves.
I come in greet my co-workers, we do rounds on the patients and get report. Pass meal trays out when they arrive. I assist patients with there daily needs and change there linens when they take a shower. I learned how to put a catheter in a patient, and use they machine that tells you how much urine was in there bladder to make sure they urine wasn't backing up inside the patient. .Management was great. My co- workers were great. we always pull together as a team. The hardest part about the job was watching the patient deter ate. The enjoyable part was making a difference in the patients day.
unit secretary (Former Employee) – Houston Tx. 77030 – September 4, 2015
Every day I learned something new. Whether it was from a patient, physician, or even a co-worker. The hardest part of my job was having one of our patients pass away. The why i say that is because our patients was like one of our own family members. The most enjoyable moment was when our patients was told that they was now in "REMISSION". And you see them walking around, doing things that they have not been able to do in months.

RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – Houston Medical Center – August 23, 2015
I am a case manager in the Emergency Room at CHI St. Luke's Medical Center where there's never a dull moment. Fast paced but an Excellent continued learning opportunity. The job keeps me busy with not only adequate documentation requirements and status accuracy but with continued community resource referrals. I love the hype, I love the quieter days and I love my co-workers. The company was recently bought out by Catholic Health Initiatives and is going thru some administrative and staff changes. However, I believe in our leaders and trust them to turn the current situation around.
Great coworkers and benefits
I have to work every third weekend, evenings, and I would rather have a job where I come early and leave at a reasonable hour..
Patient Care Assistant II (PCA) (Former Employee) – Houston, X – July 18, 2015
Enjoy working for this company. Management was very professional and provided an open door policy to its employees. Gained a lot of knowledge working in the Cardiovascular Recovery Room. Very rewarding Job.
Working for St. Luke's was a energetic job with multiple challenges. I enjoyed working with the transplant physician's to teach them to document on their patients using the electronic medical record, Epic. It was challenging to work around their schedules and to focus my teaching plans to their specific needs.

Patient care assistant II (Former Employee) – Medical Center – April 30, 2015
St.Lukes is a great company to work for. They taught me how to tohave the best bedside manner and to obtain vital signs,draw blood and EKG's in a timely manner. My co-workers were the best ever. the hardest part of my job was seeing patients in pain after a big surgery. The most enjoyable part of my job was making sure my patient was pain free, comfortable and in a safe enviroment.
I worked at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital for 7 years. Overall this is a good place to work. I think they spread the staff a little thin at times, but overall it was a positive 7 year work experience for me.
