Patient Services Coordinator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – November 7, 2017
At Swedish my role was a registrar for the emergency room. I worked at several campuses and enjoyed the fast paced environment. We had to register patients under two minutes and be efficient and accurate with all patient demographics and details. I would have stayed and continued employment there but we decided to relocate to another state.
Patient Financial Representative II (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 18, 2017
I loved working for Swedish medical center, had no problem in and out daily, getting along with management made my day go fast, like I was never at work. I think if you tend to be negative it kinds of throws you off the atmosphere. I meant I think its best you choose what you really want to do in life workwise, because if you don't well its overwhelming.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Edmonds, WA – October 14, 2017
Since I came from being working for more than five years in one of the best hospitals in the northwest and possibly, in the country, (University of Washington Medical Center) I started working at Swedish with some doubts. At the end I can tell you that the experience was amazing. As a CNA, the duties are about the same everywhere, just taking vital signs, cleaning and grooming, and overall supporting the patients emotionally and advocating for them, showing them how important they are for you as a person and as a team as well. I learned that never doubt when you face a new experience. It's true that the unit I worked in is part of the old building, but even though the spaces are well distributed and easy to work in. The hardest part, of course, the patients whom you can't do anything else to save their lives. And the death.
Putting the patients first.
As everywhere I think, some stuff (nurses) are not that helpfull as they should.

Certified Volunteer Technician Specialist (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – October 6, 2017
I've been told that it's not fair I haven't been offered a position with the hospital after volunteering for a little over 8 years. I would really like to stay with Swedish Medical Center - First Hill Campus, at least a Part Time employee with the department I continue to help in.
Validated parking as a volunteer, allowance for lunch.
Haven't been offered at least a Part Time position.

Swedish is a great company to work for. They offer great benefits. I've gained a tremendous amount of customer service experience here. Swedish management really makes sure that their employees are happy and in a comfortable environment.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Englewood, CO – September 6, 2017
I really enjoyed this job but I think I was too young to appreciate it. It was very emotional for me and I felt a little thrown to the wolves. I was a brand new CNA and was put in the float pool so a different floor every day. I was overwhelmed by some of the floors I had to work on and it freaked me out. I think now would be different and I would love to work in the hospital again. I love helping people but at the time I was in a little over my head. None of that is Swedish fault, I would recommend it to anyone!
