Fast paced and ever changing days at work. Provides endless opportunities for career advancement. Support for management and co-workers. Constant change is hard for some people, you need to be up for the challenge. Patient and staff interaction, making a difference in someone's life.
Beautiful work environment, supportive healthy lifestyle.
Great exposure to health care in a trauma 1 facility
Anesthesia Technician (Current Employee) – Stanford, CA – July 18, 2016
Stanford Hospital provided a great place to learn about the ins and outs of a trauma 1 facility. My typical day exposed me to heart transplants to gun shot victims to radiation therapy. My work had my in every department of the hospital (operating room, endoscopy, cath/angio, orthopedics, emergency, etc.) I have aided with the intubation of patients, provided chest compressions on patients in cardiac arrest, provided assistance to the anesthesiologist during code blue emergencies; and set up and maintained all anesthesia equipment in the hospital.
Patient Companion (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – July 18, 2016
My personal opinion once they get you into a position and you show that you are great at that position that's where they want to keep you . I wish the advancement was more attainable, for example I had shown myself to be an excellent patient companion but once I had graduated CNA school and wanted to further myself in that field, I felt stifled. Everything else about Stanford is pretty awesome!

Assistant Nurse Manager of E3 (Former Employee) – Stanford, CA – June 23, 2016
This Hospital was my Stepping stone as a young nurse manager. II learned so much not only about being a nurse manager but what it took to be a nurse manager and what my nurses needed from me as a resouce on the floor during the shift. I quickly learned to multli task and get the most done with in my 8 hour shift while keeping my staff calm under the most stressful of situations. The hardest hardest part of the job was being a young nurse manager and having to prove myself but the best part of the job was being able to do just that, prove myself.

Talent Acquisition (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – May 27, 2016
I have worked for Stanford Health Care for a number of years. I chose to join Stanford to be a part of the leading edge care and research happening here. My family has received lifesaving care at Stanford; which makes this place all the more special to me. It is easy to connect the work you do each day to improving the lives of our patients. The vision and values of the organization resonate personally with me.
The Talent Acquisition team (Recruitment) at Stanford is the most talented and engaged team I have ever been a part of. We have an amazingly diverse team. The varying backgrounds and experiences of this team promotes a wealth of wonderful ideas and opportunities to enhance our work and make us stronger as a team. Did I mention we have fun? We have a very positive team that enjoys going to Giants Games, Warrior Games, walks and spending time with each other outside of the workplace.
The new director has created flexible work schedules and advocated for the best systems and resources for our team. She has respectfully challenged the status-quo, which has helped the team garner trust and respect from our hiring partners and hospital leaders. Most importantly, her positive attitude and approach has improved engagement within our team and the entire HR function.
With Stanford on your resume, it enables a lot of advancement
Assistant Director Housekeeping (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – May 22, 2016
Stanford is very metric driven; cleaning of regular discharges and terminal cleaning is completely monitored and timed; you are either in the Red (unacceptable) or in the Green (acceptable) based on times in and out of the room. I have participated in writing a lot of "Standard Work" to make processes consistent and focued down to the smallest detail; nothing is taken for granted or assumed. My supervisory team is a very close knit group and look out and support one another. The most challenging part of the job is that you are tasked with multiple projects and expectations of quick turn around times on projects and writing of Standard Work as well as completing the daily work already under your supervision. You must be very organized. This has been the most focused and intense work setting I have been involved with in this business. If you can thrive and survive at Stanford, you can go anywhere. There is a great recognition program here and it is very impressive.
