Downward Spiral with Penn Medicine Takeover
RN (Former Employee) –  West Chester, PADecember 31, 2016
Since Penn Medicine has taken over the hospital, the motto is do more with less as patient to nurse ratios have increased, providing ancillary nursing help has decreased, and nurses have less input in regards to decisions made by nursing administration and product purchasing. A once lovely place to work has turned into a culture of make money for the Penn System.
Pros
Good place to start as graduate nure
Cons
Big corporate feel

Excellent nurse/patient ratio, management involved in nursing
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  West Chester, PAOctober 3, 2015
Assignment as almost never more than four patients. We had a daily "huddle" with our director and nurse manager, who communicated important information and wanted feedback on any pertinent issues on the floor. Team work was incredible, especially in a code situation.
Pros
Strong support from all disciplines, an equality based relationship with the Doctors, NP's an PA's.
Cons
Many discharges and admissions in one shift

Monitor Surveillance Technician (Current Employee) –  West Chester, PAJuly 16, 2013
As with any job in healthcare you will only go as far as your educational experience will carry you. Management is typical; the same I have experienced at a myriad of different employers. Staff is friendly; small town feel.

Nursing Assistant/ Patient Care Tech (Current Employee) –  West Chester, PAJuly 12, 2013
This company does not make an effort to keep nursing assistant/techs on as RNs once they finish school. They let valuable people leave and seem to keep the ones that care very little for patients.

Registered Nurse (Current Employee) –  West Chester, PAApril 2, 2013
TCCH has an excellent culture and supportive management team.
The toughest part of working in the ED is the overwhelming patient load that often occurs. The Chester County population has exploded in recent years, and the hospital has struggled to keep up with this growth. My co-workers have been fantastic at jumping in and helping when needed!
I enjoy helping patients.
Pros
supportive co-workers and management
Cons
large patient loads
