Software Analyst (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – January 20, 2016
Sturdy Memorial is a wonderful hospital to work for. There is a family like atmosphere that helps make the work day easier. On most days I would come in contact with many friendly faces and always felt as though my opinion was appreciated. Even on days of stressful tasks, when it seemed the day could only get worse there was the support of co-workers to lean on. Management at sturdy is very approachable and very involved in all aspects of projects and solutions. The hardest part of my job has been at times when we, as a department, are unable to come to a solution for a problem. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we are able to help others to work more efficiently which in turn improves patient care. The hospital makes great strides to move into the future of patient care which gives employees exposure to new and modern concepts.

Management is horrible, Everyone is married to someone which makes things more difficult. Pay is great and end of the year bonuses are great. Would never go back due to management issues human resource managers should not be married to other units managers.

I worked for this facility for a year. I very much enjoy providing patients with care. I was able to communicate with many patients, I valued there opinions and stories. Communication is an important part of the healing process

Unit Secretary (Current Employee) – Attleboro, MA – December 3, 2014
I enjoy working with intelligent coworkers and learn something new every day. The most enjoyable part of the job is dealing with patients and their families, especially the ones that return for care. I call them my regulars and tell them they're my favorites. The most difficult part of the job is making follow up appointments while continuing to greet patients as they arrive for labor checks as well as outpatient testing. Because we're a self contained unit and as such a specialty, we're left to do our jobs with little oversight and the staff works so well as a team that it's a pleasure to look forward to each day.
the trust the staff has in my ability to do my job

Quiet, quaint office with a handful of associates.
Telecommunications Operator (Current Employee) – Attleboro, MA – July 29, 2013
The department has a very low turnover rate, the employees they have worked there for years. A typical day would be taking calls from both hospital and doctor offices, signing them in and out for lunch, and again at the end of their business day. Taking messages for offices and paging the on call physician for their patients. Handling alarms and making sure the appropriate personnel (in-house and out)are informed.
Transport Aide - Volunteer (Current Employee) – Attleboro, MA – June 30, 2013
On a typical day, we may either be running around like crazy or we may have an incredible amount of downtime. When we receive a call, we head to the patients room and transfer them onto a stretcher. Sometimes this is simple and the patient is very coherent and able to walk but other times the patient may be completely helpless. Regardless, there is a lot of communication with the patients and the nurses. The most difficult part of the job is when patients tell you the results of their tests that they are very upset about and there is nothing you can do to change or fix it. The most rewarding and enjoyable part of the job is ensuring that the patients have the most comfortable stay at the hospital possible. I have become close with my coworkers and they are all very hardworking and caring individuals.
