Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Irving, NY – September 3, 2016
TLC was a wonderful hospital to work for, everyday was different from the day before. I learned the many duties that someone who becomes as phlebotomist must do everyday. I learned all the different jobs it takes to be a successful phlebotomist. Management is very Important job to have. You have to know and learn all the different tubes and stoppers for the many different testing. Whether the specimens need to be refrigerated , spun down or not. Working with other people in the lab can be difficult. My co-workers were enjoyable to work with. The hardest part of the job was keeping the patients calm when drawing their blood. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the patients I was working with.
Clerk (Former Employee) – Irving, NY – February 25, 2016
The one thing that would help the poor morale would be to start holding the managers accountable. Promotion of bad managers will chase away the good employees. If you are a thinker and doer you will quickly find yourself to be at the bottom of the pecking order by the VP's and Managers. Taking my talent else ware.

Staff Physical Therapist (Current Employee) – Irving, Ny – November 12, 2013
Great interdisciplinary team work between therapy and nursing departments. Management is sensitive to the needs of the co-workers life inside and outside of the work environment. Most rewarding part of the job is the opportunity to work across the: in-patient, out-patient, SNF and LTC disciplines.
Enjoyed my job as Unit Clerk where I felt needed by the other staff and the patients alike..
Emerald Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Irving, NY – October 22, 2013
It was a very rewarding job for me. I enjoyed the demand to file and document correctly for the health professionals I worked with, the need for confidentiality, and often to help find supplies to better serve our patients. The most interaction I had with our patients was at a relaxed mealtime or taking them to there specialized appointments as needed. During those times I enjoyed talking with patients and they were most grateful for any kindness shown. This was there last place on this earth for our Long Term Care patients and I wanted it to be as good as possible for them. The hardest part of the job for me was saying good-bye. So many of our long term care patients over the years had passed and it was always such a sad time for us all. We tried to comfort the family as well as keep out patients comfortable. The patients almost become your family after caring for them for so long.
I had learned to be more confident in dealing with people
Emerald Unit Clerk (Former Employee) – Irving, NY – July 30, 2013
I began my career at TLC Health Network with no previous knowledge of the medical field. Over the years; I have learned so much medical information from doctors, nurses and aides I was working with. I enjoyed the contact with patients and their families; knowing that we as a unit, where meeting their needs. I had the priviledge of learning most of my secretarial skills on the job, the importance of confidentiality, speaking on an overhead call system( the hardest part of the job for me), always helpful to all that approach the desk, and helping patients find staff to meet their needs, all while answering multiple phones. The pleasure I got from my job was knowing that I had made my nurses job easier by providing paper forms, supplies for treatments, organizing packets for admissions, and finding all that they needed each and every day so that they could devote more of their time to the care of their patients. The worst part of the job that I found stressful , was the phone calls to different insurance companies to get referrals for treatments. I found it to be the most difficult, by luckily the nursing staff was willing to take a call if the questions got to medically involved.
I enjoyed that each day was different but yet there was a basic routine to the day as well.
Staffing shortages sometimes required that we all step up to the plate a little more, sometimes doing some things that were not in your job description.
Administrative Assistant to COO (Current Employee) – Irving, NY – December 2, 2012
TLC Health Network is simply in a time of transition. The leadership is excellent in a time of extreme chaos. A typical day is rare, but may include scheduling difficult meetings, taking minutes, solving complex problems, and making sure the right leaders are involved in every situation. I have learned a great deal about healthcare and the skill and wisdom needed to lead in such an unsure economy. My co-workers are amazing!! They are dedicated and loyal. The hardest part of my job is my inability to do more. Without a clinical background and with a very strict budget; the need to move forward is imminent. The most enjoyable part of my job is working the one of the best leaders I have ever known in our COO. The deep purpose I serve and the honor of following.
onsite cafeteria, challenges, a great learning experience
