Lead Diet Technician (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – February 9, 2018
No job is perfect, no co-worker is perfect, no manger is either but here at the hospital you can make a huge impact on those patients in need. You go to work and work hard but you leave feeling good. Being a member of the Stamford community my whole life, I was proud to help assist my fellow neighbor. You meet a very diverse group of people and you serve them all equally. You see all the different thing people can go through in the world and you learn to be able to relate to them all.... Maybe a little too deep and maybe not enough detail about the day to day hustle and bustle but that is my review of working at the Stamford Hospital. I enjoyed my time there and I enjoyed serving the people.
We are truly, truly helping others in need
Despite being in a position to help others in need, some choose not too
Worked as a RN here for several years. Management is sub-par. Career advancement is not a priority, and opportunities for advancement are routinely withheld to benefit the needs of the particular unit you were hired for. Pay is becoming comparable to NY, but they are not unionized. I can count on two hands the number of lunch breaks I was able to take in the last 5 years that I worked there. They are barely holding on to Magnet status and the Planetree culture is a joke.
Provide emergency medical care to an average of 30 critically ill patients per shift within a 20+ bed Emergency Department. Ensure the provision of quality emergency medical care to patients requiring emergency treatment in accordance with physician orders, hospital policy, and standard nursing practice. Perform patient assessment and nursing diagnosis.

The management here is some of the worst Ive ever seen. And I was in the military! Part of the problem is that management has no checks or balances. Nobody higher up seems to care. How else could you explain losing 80% of your staff to transfers, resignations and terminations and all the while upper management does nothing. To say that there is favoritism among managers would be a huge understatement. When I was there I saw one tech written up when he came in late 12 times while another was written up only after being late 25 times. And you can be written up for anything. Even being late 1 minute! The whole time I was there I felt like I was swimming with sharks. So if you are looking for experience, get what you need and get out! If you are looking for a career, don't bother.
There are many great things about Stamford Hospital, but I feel that the pay is not competitive with NYC. I received a lot of experience there. However, looking back I was overworked. I did enjoy the committees.
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Greenwich, CT – November 29, 2017
I worked for SHMG the doctors take you for granted and get upset when you call out sick. They don’t appreciate all we do for no extra pay. They are always short staffed and can’t find coverage when it’s needed.
printing schedules, verifying orders for test, I learned how to read/identify scanned images. learned how to flush and pull port catheters. document procedure performed and outcome of patient. cleaned and prepped procedure room for next testing.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – November 27, 2017
I love working here. From an administrative standpoint there are opportunities to pick up hours on different floors. My manager is approachable and fair. The nurses and CAs treat me with respect and help when I have a question. Benefits are the best I’ve ever had. I honestly hope to stay here a long time.
Systems and Desktop Engineer (Former Employee) – Summer St. Stamford, CT 06902 – November 14, 2017
Worked for "SHIP" (Stamford Health Integrated Practices) and this was the one best experiences in my professional career. besides the very good pay, every one was very pleasant and i always felt to be working on a team! We had a dress code and i felt we were impressing each other every day with our attires. Would have never left if i wasn't relocating to another state.
Stamford hospital just opened a brand new building last year, we are all still getting used to it. It's a beautiful building. We do portable work going to patients rooms. Hardest part of the job is seeing the patients who are ill. The best part is meeting all kinds of wonderful people. Management is working on improving themselves.
Stamford hospital is a teaching hospital nothing is hidden from employees you start in one department and because you pay attention and willing to learn you're educated to move on to another department that fits your experience most employees are friendly and welcoming if there is things or department you don't know someone is willing to show you and if that employee don't know they will find the right employee that is able to help when you work for Stamford hospital you feel as if you're in school again every day you learn something new also you get lots of training I would encourage any and every one to apply to work for this hospital also use this hospital as there healthcare institution grant place to work and great place to be when you're sick.
all I will say is come see for yourself you won't regret.
Productive and fun workplace with. An amazing culture and deduction to customer services. The new hospital is such a great and amazing facility that would give you the impression that you are in a hotel.
