Valley Baptist as a whole.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee), Brownsville, TXFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: great co-workers, experience in a high paced environment, awesome management, and great benefits.
Cons: all cons were fixable and not too bothersome.
In the emergency room there isn't a "typical" day which I loved nothing is the same as the day before. The regular things I would do is register patients, obtain all the necessary information to complete account and billing information. Management was very understanding and easy to speak to, my co-workers are the best we work fluently together like – more... a well oiled machine we found the more effective way to work for the patients as well as our productivity. Sometimes the flow of patients are very high but you just need to take a moment to recollect and breathe then get it done. I love working with my Valley Baptist family the nurses are very great to work with, also my 12 hr days seem to breeze by most of the time. – less

Always the opportunity to learn something new
Patient Access Specialist (Current Employee), Brownsville, TXJanuary 25, 2014
Pros: healthcare, pto hrs
Cons: na
Fast paced environment, always something new to learn,
What I have learned so far is that each and every person has
to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their social or economical status. Our patients,families, and friends deserve the
best treatment and customer service possible. During the years
that I have been working at Valley Baptist, – more... there has been several
changes and three different managers. I have been able to adjust
to new changes and policies.I am always open for a change. In
reference to my co-workers, I am always willing to help them.
Since there is new group of employees, I was assigned to
train them. For, I am proud and happy for the confidence placed in me.
The most enjoyable part of the day is to see that the job has been
done and that I have taken care of my patients. – less

An excellent place to develop nursing skills
Fulltime Rehab RN (Former Employee), Harlingen, TXDecember 20, 2013
Pros: employees recieved a shift differential for working nights
Cons: too many cut backs in supplies, shift differentials, and raises
I particularly liked that obtaining higher education is encouraged and has a tuition reimbursement program and scholarships available. Management works with your schedule so you can attend school. There is a retirement program which the hospital contributes into for the employee that participates with their own share of contributions into the plan. – more... The hardest part of the job was dealing with the hospital being sold to two different companies twice within one year. The culture changes were frequent and overwhelming. – less

Ultrasound Technologist (Current Employee), Harlingen, TXDecember 11, 2013
Pros: on breaks when days are slow
Cons: working holidays
A really nice place to work for experience. VBMC has the best doctors and co workers to work with. Some days are educational and others are full filling. Hardest part is working on holidays but the most enjoyable part is knowing you can make a difference.

Good Healthcare Program
Home Infusion Director (Former Employee), Harlingen, TXOctober 9, 2013
Pros: startup program was challenging and rewarding
Cons: leadership who did not understand home infusion requirements
I did not work in the acute care side of the healthcare program of Valley Baptist but instead the Home Health division. I had a great opportunity to start the Home Infusion Division from the ground up and was given the support needed to do so in the beginning but after a year, the leadership structure changed and the expectation of my role and duties – more... changed which lead me to make a change in employment. – less

CPE Resident- hospital chaplain (Current Employee), Brownsville, TXAugust 5, 2013
Pros: the culture of kindness pervading the hospital.
Cons: long 24 hour on-call shifts
A typical day at work as a CPE Resident involves seeing patients on assigned floors and responding to emergencies within the hospital. I learned about leading families in crisis situations. My coworkers were amiable and concerned with my welfare. The hardest part of the job are the long on-call shifts. The most enjoyable part of the job is rewarding – more... interaction with patients. – less
