SNAP REPRESENTATIVE (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – November 18, 2015
A fun and steady work place with good management. Always willing to provide room for growth and learning advancement. The most enjoyable part, is being able to do multiple projects in order to learn a variety of different job titles.
transport (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – November 10, 2015
This is a great work place with great co workers. The management is very understanding to your schedule and works with you to your needs. It is hard at first fitting in but you are not there to make friends. Everyone is very nice and the shifts are great. Lunch is always healthy but tastes great too, a lot of variety. The only problem is lack of pay for what you are doing in the job and the fact that you have to go through HR before you can get to the actual people who are going to be hiring you.
Benefits, Extra additions (i.e. gym, cafeteria, childcare), flexibility
Generalist on the Day (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – November 5, 2015
Valley Health has become a very hostile workplace environment.Senior management shows no compassion or consideration for the general employee.Ideas and innovation are crushed under the weight of their self serving attitudes.Would discourage anyone to work there even for a short period of time.
RN (Former Employee) – Winchester – September 24, 2015
In over 37 years of nursing with the last 6 as advanced practice, I would run away from this hospital system, especially their home health department or you will be their next victim!! There is quite the high turnover.
The management is all over the place and are unable to focus. I am not sure how they stay employed but then that could be the culture of the hospital itself. Several nurses have gone to administration without positive outcomes. They are unsafe when assigning patients and promise 5-6 per day but 8-10 are the norm.
One feels stress and bully-type behaviors from the time one walks in. There is much "he said, she said" behaviors and the orienting staff will report you to management for things that did not occur, most likely to keep their own jobs--several other colleagues have had the same experiences in the past year.
I have had feedback from over 12 different colleagues and think this is a notable number
Great equipment to work with and many supplies
job security unheard of and micro- management or no management
WARREN MEMORIAL HOSPITAL-Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Cumberland, VA – September 20, 2015
I enjoyed working here but yet again I could be bias because I was a co-owner here. It was hard work but the pay scale and working with family is nothing short of wonderful. In the end I do regret that my ex and I had to sell the business because of personal issues.

Assist surgeons-as an RN...see resume. (Former Employee) – See resume...Winchester Medical Center. – September 2, 2015
Phlebotomy is where I started in the medical field. Loved the interaction with the patients. Management was top notch in the department. Everyone worked hard. No complaining. Helped each other. Alot of work to do besides draw blood. Specimen collection and processing, orders, paternity testing, etc.
Nursing was great also..worked in the ER and loved that type of work. I was also flight nursing with the military. Trauma nursing was great.
Registered Nurse II Critical Care Step Down unit (Current Employee) – Winchester, VA – August 28, 2015
I was hired fresh out of nursing school to the Critical Care internship followed by a full-tme position in the Critical Care step-down unit. The internship was a great educational experience and a fantastic way for my to apply my skills and knowledge learned in nursing school. My time in the step-down unit had its ups and downs. At first I felt like I was thrown to the wolves. Being a high acuity and high patient turn over unit the first few months felt overwhelming. Looking back over the last two years, I wouldn't trade this experience for anything. I learned to care for a variety of critically ill patients and also learned the importance of strong team work.
Nutrition Service Associate (Former Employee) – Winchester, VA – July 12, 2015
I started working in the Nutrition Department here while I was in high school and continued to work here after graduation. They worked around my high school schedule, while still being able to have enough time off for myself. Although there is a lot to learn, a pretty heavy workload for one person, and short on staff, I believe it is still a well-paying job for high school students and young adults.
Well-paying jobs for students, good first-time job
Short staff, sometimes hours/work can be overwhelming.
Lab (Former Employee) – Winchester, VA – June 15, 2015
The culture of this facility was a great fit of that of a small minded community eternally stuck about twenty years in the past. Thinking was discouraged and not welcomed. The corrupt members of management and HR continually looked the other way at the general staff's cries for help against the bullying by other management members. Anyone that disagreed with management's views were labeled as negative and belittled on a daily basis. Most of the staff are just so broken, beat down and overworked that the quality of work that is produced is frightening. Working here is like being In abusive relationship, people feel trapped into believing they have no where else to go and think it's ok to allow others to treat them like garbage. The only way to get ahead here is to lose your self respect and integrity before walking into the doors of this hospital.
No follow-up or follow through by HR and/or management
