Housekeeping (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – March 7, 2017
I love working there, lots of cool people and co workers. Great work environment. They take care of their own. There was a time where I was out for a month and they made sure I still had my job when I returned
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – January 8, 2017
Great place to work! I've been a Phlebotomist at Stormont for almost 3 years and prior to that 1.5 years in their cafeteria. Stormont really gives several opportunities for advancement. I have found my calling in phlebotomy. I work on the first shift and have to say my supervisor is by far THE ABSOLUTE BEST supervisor around!! The hours are fantastic (0530-1400), the pay is pretty good.. could be a little bit better for the job we do and the work is very hard in the beginning.. but once you get the hang of it, it's like clockwork and becomes so easy! I go to bed each night ready for the next morning. When I wake up I am ready to get my workday started! I have made a family from my phlebotomy co workers. Really.. of pre the negative reviews. They are just mad that they failed at the job at hand, because Stormont, especially the lab, is a great place to work!
PCT (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – July 22, 2016
I have been a PCT in the PACU for 6 years. It is the greatest place to work. I did work in Pre-Op and I hated it. The nurses there were not very helpful. I left Pre-Op after I got pregnant with my son. I was very sick and the nurses were no help. I then went to Spine Center and it was way worse. Most of the nurses except for two that were former PCT's were of no help. Sometimes, I would have the whole floor which was 13 patients. Then on top of that nurses that were not helpful. I came to learn that a lot of nurses love that RN title so much that they forget the whole reason they became nurses. Overall, PACU was and still is the best place I've worked at Stormont.
Excellent care at Stormont Vail and the people are great to work with..Learned compassion and always to do my best...Working with patients and giving them care was most enjoyable..I worked at Cotton-Oneil Clinic for 20 years...working with wonderful people made the job fun.
enjoyed the pharmacutical luncheons and meeting the Reps
RN (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – April 13, 2016
I agree with previous posts. If they don't like you for whatever reason, they will push you out. I was told that I wasn't meeting expectations (even though my reviews were good) and was told that I would do better in another department and they would transfer me. I realized that no matter what I did it the situation wasn't going to improve. So, I agreed to transfer. Then, they presented a paper saying I was resigning, I was reassured that I had to "resign my position, not the hospital" in order for them to transfer me. After reluctantly signing, I was told to go home and "good luck applying for another position". I applied to other positions and rejected without interviews.
Stormont-Vail is an awesome place to work. Very fast paced but quality of care is excellent. I would recommend them as an employer to anyone that would ask. I only left there to work at my last job in hopes of one day owning the company when our boss retired.
Many employees had spoken to the management beyond our area about the concerns with management and care of clients. These were ignored.
They abolished our positions, so the job did not feel secure. We worked every-other-weekend. When we worked a weekend we did not have two days off in a row, which was really difficult to maintain connection in personal life.
When hired I was told there would be rotating weekends every 3-4 weeks. Be cautious if accepting a job at this agency.
RN (Former Employee) – Pre Access – April 16, 2015
I enjoyed my position working in pre access and I was very quality and detail oriented which was necessary to ensure the patient received correct care. Look out... If you're not "one of them" and they want to get rid of you they'll find a way and then deny you for unemployment. I worked there for 8 years and within the last 6 months, we lost 2 nurses to retirement which left 2 nurses to do the work of 4! Those 2 nurses weren't replaced! Always finding more work for less staff! To me, bottom line was $$$.
Basically a decent company, but look out for some of the staff.
Unable to get away from desk, except for bathroom breaks.
Started out working in the cafeteria then left to join the lab. I was royally screwed by the director and my supervisors.I was forced to quit due to the fact that I was not able to be perfect all the time and the managers favored other people more alot and expected me to kiss their butts and demanded unreasonable things from me. The girls are all two faced and will go out of their way to make you miserable.Very difficult people to work with overall.The work itself is not easy and gets worse.
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Topeka, KS – October 3, 2013
I currently work as a PCT where the typical patient load is seven patients, however that may be more or less depending on patient census and staffing. I work on a Med-Surg unit with fantastic staff that provide support when needed, are prepared and able to handle a variety of healthcare situations.
