Swedish is a wonderful organization to work for. The collaboration and team work displayed by all disciplines was something unique. Everyone had their role and valued the contributions of those around them. This positive and supportive atmosphere created a safe and welcoming work enviroment.
Transplant Social Worker (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 12, 2017
Swedish is a fast paced environment and there is a manageable workload if you are efficient and achieve what you need. I have had a lot of pleasure working there, however I do not work closely within the hospital, rather in an outpatient clinic.
Patient Registrar (Current Employee) – Issaquah, WA – June 7, 2017
excitement, always learning something new management is pretty ok culture is very diverse and understanding of the time we are in hardest part of the job is not knowing what kind of patients will walk in the door and their issues the challenge of not knowing
Registration Clerk (Current Employee) – Englewood, CO – June 5, 2017
Overworked underpaid. Supposedly full time but constantly budgeted. If you are hired on as a full time employee expect only 30 to 35 hours instead of 40. No training after the repetitive computer training. Transferred from department to department, and hours switched at the dropped of the hat. . All about collecting the money and meeting the budget. No caring for patients or employees. Employees are micro managed and forced to sign documents.. Required to wear uncomfortable polyester uniforms. The co workers are great. The pay is decent. The benefits are acceptable.
Referral and Prior Authorization Coordinator (Current Employee) – Swedish Medical Center - Seattle, WA – June 4, 2017
Swedish is a wonderful place to work. The staff and managers are very welcoming. The hardest part of the job navigating the intranet. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping patients and family members in need.
Employees are committed and are willing to help their peers.
At times the clinics and departments communications are a bit disjointed.
Certified Central Service Technician (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – June 1, 2017
Hmmm where can I start. The place is very under staffed, cheap on supplies for work purposes,lazy employees and not team oriented. Case load can be from 70-80 cases a day very busy and overwhelming the add on's continue throughout the day. Compensation is horrible but yet this is the highest paid facility in the city of Seattle. Treat the employees throughout the department horrible you'll get a write up for any and everything even if you call off sick. Only allowed 3 sick calls a year this is ridiculous come on we're in the medical field. Don't even bother unless you're up to getting mistreated and disrespected. This facility have a hard time hiring no one wants to work here. Also too cheap to hire agency temporarily as well. Instrument sets just sit up for days on out WIP is as high as 500+ on lowest point is 200's.
Think this one out real well before applying at Swedish Firsthill! Best of luck!
MRI Technologist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 19, 2017
Swedish is a great place to work. There are multiple avenues for advancement and the pay is competitive with other hospitals in the area. I am always challenged at work but never overwhelmed and management provides the equipment and support we need to do our job most of the time.
