Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 3, 2015
Tucson medical center is a very excellent hospital for patients care!! Since I worked here I have learned a lot of medical termanology, medical protocals. I have also recivied different certications, Neuro Reds, Cardic Arrest, DVT. I love my co worker!! We are always helpping one another, one team one heart! The best part of this job is knowing I helped doctors and nurses figure out what is going on with their patients. The down fall of my 9 years working here is we have only gotten raises 3 times. Management and Nurses have got raises each years.

TMC truly welcomes all new hires. They are family oriented. They want you to have a life outside of work and have many family activities, both day and night. I was given a very large raise in pay when I moved to TMC. They value their employees, which have kept a low turn over rate.
Locally owned and the only Community hospital left in Tucson
My first medical job and I knew medical is what I was meant to do
PATIENT CARE TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 29, 2016
Checking in patients, assisting in taking and developing x-rays, drawing up injections, calling for referrals, etc. I learned how to be a great asset to the medical field in putting my skills to use. My co-workers were great team players.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – March 25, 2016
Typical day varies depending on the areas you have and the team mates on shift. Team work was great at times other times you were on your own to deal with varying difficult situations even with a charge there. Good thing was that you were placed in differing situations, one moment your dealing with an 81 yo copd pt and the next a neonate coming back in with rsv needing ventilatory support. The place makes you strong.
PCT/CNA - Provide personal care and assist (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – November 30, 2015
I worked on nights and I loved it, couldn't have a better team. Management was a little difficult to deal with, I was jumping through hoops which was set higher than anyone else. favoritism was a big deal on the unit.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – September 28, 2015
Organizing and restocking food and drinks. Refolding shirts and pants. My co-workers and management make working a very enjoyable experience and so do the customers. Making deliveries to patients rooms.
Free water and coffee. 15% discount off the store for volunteers.
Certified Lead Nurse-(August 2004-August 2011) (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 14, 2015
typical day at work was very busy. Most of the time there was no time to take lunch. Most of my RN experience was here. I moved up the ladder very quick. I think I took on positions too fast and that is why I had to learn stress techniques. My co-workers for most were very enjoyable to work with. hardest part of the job was upper management always wanting me to fill beds that were either still occupied or not enough staff. The best part of my job was caring for patients. I would be tickled when I was able to take a patient load myself because as a charge nurse there was not time for that.
taking care of patients, co-workers and the phyicians
upper management staffing by numbers and not acuity
Mammography Technologist (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – February 11, 2013
I was full time but never had full time hours. I was treated as per diem, with hours going to favored staff mammographers, including per diem mammographers. Any advancements went to a per diem employee which included many out of state seminars that were paid for by TMC. The seminars were also available to favored staff members, but never to me. There were many more reasons that I left TMC employment, however, the fact that I was denied a exit interview by management, I think says it all. I also want to say that the supervisor treated other employees with disdain who were not her friends. Upper management allowed this behavior to go on the length of my employment in the breast department. When people would complain it was ignored for the most part.
Enviromental Services Associate I (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 12, 2014
Tucson Medical Center is a very good place to start a career in many healthcare fields. The staff are friendly and helpful at all times even to the newest individuals on a team. Without a doubt co-workers and management will work together to ensure success in any field that you apply to at Tucson Medical Center. The most enjoyable part of the job is the satisfaction of watching patients and staff work together to solve the many healthcare issues that face our population today.
I have learned a great deal at this institution and hope to carry the knowledge on to future jobs.
Excellent place to work , face pace learning environment
Emergency Room Admission Associate (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 14, 2012
A typical day at TMC would be to obtain patient information and collect patients deductibles or copay. Enter in patient information to the company billing system. Assisted EMTs and Paramedics with information need. Also admitting patient and reviewing benefits with patients. Answering patient and business phone calls, Filing paperwork. Hardest part of this job was the overnight on call requires hours. I enjoyed work with my fellow associates and management.
Phlebotomist/Processor (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 17, 2015
Worked here as a phlebotomist and as an Emergency Room Tech. Loved both positions and would go back if possible. Not a bad place to work as far as hospitals go. Management made it easy to communicate with them and it was always a team environment.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 10, 2015
I started out at Tucson Medical Center as a new graduate nurse. The patient population on our unit consisted of neuro/ortho patients. We also had an intense observation unit on our floor, consisting of 2 nurses and 4 high acuity patients, who required eyes on them at all times. A typical day would begin with getting assignment, receiving report from the off going shift, and building a nursing care plan based on vital signs, assessments and the immediate needs of the patients. The condition of the patients continuously drive the order of the care plan and can change very quickly with these patients. Starting IV's, placing foley's, medication administration, preparing patients for procedure or OR all had to be done with effective time management skills. I think the greatest challenge of this job was utilizing creative ways to keep patients safe from falling and at the same time minimizing the use of sitters. One of the most rewarding things in this job was seeing a patient make a full recovery after a debilitating brain injury.
Emergency Department Registrar (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 4, 2015
Entering physician orders into computer for lab and other diagnostic testing. This was a rewarding and very challenging job. Being able to prioritize tasks between critical patients and non-critical patients and see the positive results at the end of the ER visit.
I enjoyed working in the emergency medical field.

Power Plant Operator/Maintenance Mechanic (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 24, 2015
Great place to start. I have learned a lot of skills that will help me with my next job. C0-workers are good, management needs help, very un-organized. A good place to start or wind down, Pay is low compared to other areas.
