Great place to work if you have never worked outside of healthcare
Director (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 20, 2018
Sutter has a tremendous potential to dramatically change healthcare. Unfortunately most of the management has not worked outside of healthcare and are lacking. Healthcare is about where manufacturing was with regards to quality in the mid 80s. The senior management for the most part might last a quarter in a for profit environment. The closer you work to the front lines the happier you will be.
The CEO is great and I think will really turn the ship.
Pay, benefits, people truly want to do a good job.
No reason to change, slow to act and rarely think critically.
General Radiology Supervisor (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – February 23, 2018
I worked at Sutter Gould Medical Foundation. The imaging team from director to student was awesome. A real family feel, with support from administration. I was so sorry I had to leave. If you get a chance, join that team. You will be a better employee, patient advocate and person for doing so. Thank you SGMF.
Technical Analyst II (Current Employee) – Emeryville, CA – February 22, 2018
A company that embraces technology to manage work flows. Always a challenge to find better ways to streamline things. The addition of mobile devices and their build and management has increased my knowledge of work possibilities.
Educator (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – February 13, 2018
I have been contacted by a recruiter from Sutter Health and I was so excited to work there but the director of the department did not communicate clearly the expectations they had. The workplace culture is horrible everyone is competing against each other, you don't feel like part of a team at all. You don't feel supported by any way from the management. I would not recommend anyone to work at sutter health.
great medical benefits
not so great retirement benefits, the pay is lower compared to other bigger facilities. Management is poor.
Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – February 12, 2018
This is a very busy ER pretty much all times of the year. Unfortunately, management is weak and incompetent. Though as the ER is expanding another 36 beds, there is hope of great improvement and new leadership.
Sr. Project Manager-3 - IS PMO (Former Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – February 9, 2018
IT leadership is not just poor but completely inefficient. There is A PMO that does not follow PMO methodologies - Unreasonable demands from Leadership supersede PMO best practices which makes the entire IT department and PMO a toxic environment to work in.
When the IT leadership forces a PM to provide a go-live date before a project team has been assembled, that is wrong!
When the PMO leadership says just provide a go-live date and if you miss it create a new date, that is wrong!
The IT environment suits paper-pushers and 'Yes-Men and Women'.
Case Manager, RN (Former Employee) – Roseville, CA – February 7, 2018
Loved the job and co-workers but supervisor and manager were hostile. The hardest part of the job was dealing with the supervisor and manager when I was on night shift and they were not available for assistance and guidance.
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – February 6, 2018
I have been a medical assistant for over 20 years and over 17 years of it with Sutter. After many years they informed me that my years of service did not mean anything when they changed there office hours and I could not work after 5 pm. They had a Dr. that was working 7 to 4 that needed an MA and they refused to have me work with her and made me work hours I was unable to work due to my child care situation. I can work until 5 pm. I then had to go into a office position that I was told I would get trained for and they have not been fair on the learning time allowed. I am not happy at a company that I had planned on staying with until I retired.
not employee friendly when it comes to work life balance
FINANCIAL CLEARANCE TEAM MEMBER (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – February 6, 2018
If you like change this is the job for your rules and processes change just about everyday. Don't get used to what you are doing today because most likely you will not be doing it tomorrow. At the Central billing office there is NO compensation for being bilingual.
Head Legal Clerk 5 years (Former Employee) – Centralized Release of Information for SMF – January 31, 2018
Sutter is a great company to work for.
I started out as a medical records clerk and when i left i was the lead legal medical records clerk. While i was there they went from paper charts to total EMR. I was part of the clinical side of the transition from paper to EMR.
Then went from there to part of the initial team for the Centralized release of information dept. Then on to the the complete centralized medical records dept for 7 counties in North Central CA. Where we processed all incoming records to patient EMR and the release of inforamtion dept.
Solid employment with great benefits but no room for advancement
Medical coder (Current Employee) – Sacramento, CA – January 30, 2018
The coders are not allowed to talk for the first 3 hours every morning although we are subject to the noise and chatting of other groups around us. We are held at a high standard. We must code a productivity of 300 or more radiology studies per day with zero error rate.Our studies include nuclear med, CT, MR, US, mammograms, biopsy of breasts, x-rays, and We do have a coding instructor in another department who brings the coders together during the year for advanced training in E/M and auditing classes for which we recieve CEUs.
Solid job with good bennefits.
No room for advancement and very low pay for professional coders
Cardiovascular Coordinator (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – January 30, 2018
I have only been with Sutter for about a year and a half and with my time here I can already see the opportunities for advancement. I, myself have been cross trained so have experienced that first hand.
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – January 30, 2018
Sutter has many pro's and con's when working for this facility. I would not recommend working at the Stockton Sutter Health but would recommend there outside facilities in Modesto, Sacramento, and Bay area.
Insurance, ability to grow.
Poor management, Company is losing many patients because of patient cost.
RADIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGIST (Current Employee) – Roseville, CA – January 28, 2018
Great place to work, very busy, demanding physically, high volume work flow. Great management. A lot of high intense volume of patients seen each day. Some very sick patients do come in for x-rays, some lifting involved and physically can be demanding. Its nice when you can help a patient and help with there medical care and see how you can make a difference in someone's life.
Patient interaction, Patient relationships, helping people
