Pharmacy (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – May 13, 2015
The management has turned this once-decent hospital into the worst I have ever worked at. Banner has just bought the hospital, so it is too early to tell if anything will get better. As of May 2015, I would advise someone to start here only if they cannot find work anywhere else.
Patient Care Technician II (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – February 23, 2015
As of right now, management is not very good. As a tech, you are over worked and under paid. They float us all the time, every week to a different unit and give you the crappiest patient assignment. We will be under new management soon with Banner and I pray to God that things change because I will be looking for another type of job if it doesn't. We're more like maids and waitresses than patient care techs. Also, haven't seen a raise in a very long time. Lowest paying hospital in town.
Echocardiographer (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – February 22, 2015
My experience as an employee here was nothing but positive. Starting a new family was the only reason I left as I no longer wanted to work full time. The people that I worked with were all exceptional and I would change nothing about the experiences and opportunities I had here.
comaraderie and muual respect between physicians and employees
being on call for emergencies was not conducive to family life
Telemetry Monitor Technician (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 7, 2015
A typical day/night as a telemetry tech starts with report. It is a time to find out about the patients that you will be watching heart monitor on. The shift starts at the same time as the floor shifts so there is a lot going on with the patients at that time and it is very important to extra attention during times of higher stress for the patients. During the course of the shift we will complete 3 sets of 6 second "capture" strips that tell what rhythm, rate, and abnormalities the patient has in their heart rhythm. The hardest part of the job is having a patient "code" and the actions taken are not able to save them. In contrast the most enjoyable part is when a patient "codes" and because you alerted the RN of the events, the patient survives.

Externship through Pima Community College (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – March 10, 2014
As a university hospital, they have provided great knowledge and experience that a educational institute should. The utilization of student volunteers is wonderful for those who want to get an early start and foot in the door.
Telephone Operator (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – February 1, 2014
A typical day at work is making sure your ready to answer and listen to all needs of your call, what I learned is patient, understanding of peoples needs, management is good, my co workers are all team players, the hardest part of my job is learning all the new Physcians that are coming thru and making sure your saying there names right for professionaly purposes, the most enjoyable part of my job is being reconized on your work.
Excellent hospital that really focuses on pateint care
Rev. Cycle Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – January 31, 2014
I really enjoyed working in the patient placement and physician resources department. The job was very fast paced. My daily duties included constant contact with physicians from the hospital and in the community. I felt that everything we did there really impacted a patient's hospital stay.
BMET 1 (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 19, 2013
Learning something new everyday. Management is professional, and employees are easy to get along with. Hardest part of the job is to find parking. Satisfaction of the job is knowing your job is important.
