I have worked at United Hospital Center since graduation. I have worked all three shifts including Special Procedures/Cath Lab. I have always loved my work and my patients. We have a Radiology Program and students rotate thru each modality. I enjoy teaching the students and helping them learn. I currently work at an off site Family Medicine Practice with 5 Providers. We have digital equipment and the PACS System to make getting results back quickly.
I worked here as a young adult. It was a good way to start out my career in the medical field. I moved away before I got to dance very far in the facility, but I felt if I had stayed I would have had advancement opportunities.
RN (Former Employee) – 5 north and 3 Center At old hospital – October 8, 2016
Working at UHC was a good learning experience and a good stepping stone. They paid my tuition for my Masters degree. I am thankful for that. I learned telemetry and how to manage my time effectively. RNs are treated as "scut workers" by some managers. If you aren't their favorite you can just quit now. You get the worst patients and the worst schedule if you don't kiss butt -- with some of them. Pay is good. Managers are not - from the top down. Always working short handed. Always being pulled to another floor. Switched from one team of patients to another.
Medical Transcriptionist/Editor (Current Employee) – Bridgeport, WV – September 20, 2016
A typical work day for working at UHC would be logging in and editing reports that the doctors dictated in voice recognition. Lots of interesting words come into reports when a doctor is dictating using voice recognition so transcriptionist have to go in and clean up the reports. I have been doing this type of work for 30 years and I have learned so much and continue to learn whether it be new terminology, the latest cancer treatments or new software to help us do our jobs more efficiently. I have had a great experience working for UHC. My coworkers who have been there long than me are always very supportive and willing to help in any way. The most enjoyable part of my job is really just working with good people and being part of a team who knows how to work together and help each other!
