Charge RN (Current Employee) – Langhorne, PA – October 11, 2015
I am a well rounded experienced RN who is very organized and able to multi task. The most rewarding part of my job is caring for a patient who is frightened with their hospital stay and through education, emotional and hands on care I am able to provide a positive experience for those I care for.
E.R. and Outpatient Coder (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – September 28, 2015
I would normally come in early in the morning. Start my computer get everything ready and begin my data entry. I would have a 90 min break in between my 8 hour shift then back to working on the computer. I learned to be precise and fast in the workplace.
The management was a pleasure to have.
It was a quiet workplace but the co-workers where a pleasure to talk to.
The hardest part was making the deadlines for difficult paperwork
The most enjoyable part of the job is when all the paperwork is finished.
Employees are great - great benefits. Very slow on hiring people once people leave. This leaves us short staffed to complete follow up needed.
Customer Service Team Leader (Current Employee) – Langhorne, PA – September 27, 2015
As the department's supervisor, I begin most days by coming in to the office early to make sure everything is ready for our customer service agents to start their day. This includes any work challenges from the previous week or any company e-mail updates that impact our department. I also review our staff schedule to check for any changes. I respond to any messages in our customer service system, and walk the Manager through any concerns I have. The majority of my duties include assisting patients on the phone and help address any issues. I work with patients to find solutions to their billing concerns and provide education when it comes to their health insurance policy and how it works with services they are seeking from our hospital. This pattern is similar most days of the week; however, one day a week, I lead a staff training on a variety of topics, ranging from effective communication with patients to new healthcare protocols. I enjoy providing this communication weekly to my staff as it is a way to improve my leadership and presentation skills. I realize that it is hard work to be at the top of your game everyday, but is is also rewarding when you see people benefit from the information you provided to produce a positive outcome not only for the customer but for the employee as well.
Free Coffee - nice employees - team atmosphere amoung colleagues
Family oriented where you learn something new everyday
Unit Secretary/CNA (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – September 13, 2015
Starting out with sweet good-mornings from the team. We then go on to out morning Safety Meeting. This is to go over any safety concerns of the day before, or any new ideas we may have. Checking voice-mails and returning calls and answering phone calls last through-out the day. Some calls are tougher than others to handle. Then some call are enjoyable, when you can help out someone in need. And that is when you love you job the most!
RN (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – August 31, 2015
St. Mary's was a small group that worked well together. Diverse patient population that made for a variety of needs. It's been 18 year's since I worked at St. Mary's and I still have many fond memories.
Critical Care Registered Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Evansville, IN – August 13, 2015
I enjoyed what I learned from working at this hospital. I learned about open heart surgeries and how to care for the patients afterwards, critical thinking skills and assessment of critically ills patients, and pediatrics. I would not however recommend friends to work for such as hospital due to the fact that they have a poor admin staff. When you ask for help theres no one there to help you. When you go to your director, they are not willing to listen nor help if there is a problem with a supervisor. I was yelled at several times in front of patients, other staff, and family members by a supervisor, and the director refused to do anything about it. So I would not recommend anyone to go to work here.
operational assistant in social services (Current Employee) – Hobart, IN – June 16, 2015
I work as an operational assistant. I put together "packages" on various patients who need some help or rehab after discharge. I fax the packages to various nursing homes which are dependent on each patient. I follow up with the nursing homes to make sure they received the package and log any response. I can make transportation reservations for patients through ambulances for a example. I answer the phones and help with getting needed answers.
Good fellow employees, interesting work
I would rather work at a position where I had more interaction with patients and families
Lead Education Intern (Former Employee) – Long Beach, CA – June 13, 2015
My internship with St. Mary Medical Center was one of the best experiences. I learned so much by working directly with director of the department I was in. The most enjoyable part of my internship were the professional relationships I built while I was there.
Emergency Room Technician (Current Employee) – Apple Valley, CA – May 18, 2015
The problem with SMMC is that management keeps changing and we really dont have a family there at work anymore. We used to. I love most things about working here but always feel like i am walking on eggshells. At any minute someone is waiting to fire you. So that they may hire someone whom they would paylots less. Its all about numbers. its sad!
A very interesting diverse place to work. Always on the go.
Phlebotomist/Lab Assistant (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – May 13, 2015
St. Marys Medical Center is a great experience especially all the trauma calls. Management and co-workers are wonderful to work with. Management always wanted to hear our input on making things better. I am proud to be part of the St Marys Medical Center Team.
Free movie tickets for working some overtime. Special catered dinner for 5+ years of service.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Portage, Indiana – April 21, 2015
Poor pay for anyone other than a RN. Very strict on the point system, will get docked even if 30 seconds late! Management doesn't understand that you have a life at home as well and things happen. The company spends money on non-irrelevant things, when they should be paying their employees better. Everyone feels disposable. There are some good perks, but with the poor pay, it doesn't balance out.
MSW Intern (Current Employee) – Long Beach, CA – April 14, 2015
This is an acute hospital that serves the vast population in the city of Long Beach and surrounding areas. A typical day for a social worker begins in the participation of interdisciplinary meetings to identify possible patients that would need a consult. Additionally, referrals are made to social workers.
