Fun workplace
Hospital Service Representative (Former Employee), 751 South BascomAugust 20, 2015
Pros: Free lunch
Cons: healthcare
Eye Clinic very busy office from elderly to young. Management was very professional with all employees. Register patients and verify insurances and take co-payments. File paper work and answer phones, scheduled appointments and verify appointments for the following day. The hardest part of the job was seeing the sick not get well and the best part of that job was seeing patients with new eye vision after surgery!

Work is a welcome family environment. I enjoy my team mates, and doctors.
Secretary/Receptionist (Current Employee), Lewiston, IDJuly 13, 2015
Pros: EAC(Employee Appreciation Committee), and the unity of VMC to help each other in a time of need.
Cons: Changes of the company, but all things change.
Typical work day would be: Main objective to make appointments according to the patient/doctor preference. Always welcoming new and transferring patients to VMC with ease through the transition of changing practices. I have learned the indepth side of EMR, Centricity, and ICD Coding. The management at VMC has had many changes over the last year, and VMC has worked hard on improving their management team and work environment. All my co-workers at VMC are dependable, and are more than willing to jump in and help. The hardest part of my job is upset patients, because it bothers me that I cannot always appease their needs to the fullest. The most enjoyable part of my job is to help someone out in their time of need, and get them what is needed. Just hearing the "Thank You", really makes my day. It is not the easiest job that I have preformed, but it is rewarding to help people.

I truly enjoyed working at Valley. The only Con for me was the commute. The commute up 167 was horrible every day and the employee parking is bad.

PSR/Lead Float Pool (Former Employee), Renton, WAJune 8, 2015
Pros: Drug Rep Lunches, Good Benifits, and room for advancement
Cons: Staffing Concerns
I truly enjoyed working at Valley Medical the manager, co-workers and leads all worked together to make sure things got done. A typical day at Valley would start at 8am working the front desk, to answering , phone or records. No matter what time of day it was there was always something that need to be done and someone there to give a helping hand!

Health Information Clerk, III (Current Employee), San Jose, CAMay 18, 2015
Pros: management listens
Cons: short breaks, poor cell connection
A typical day at work is fairly quiet in my area. I learned that certain groups of people always stick together during breaks. Management has their plate full and don't seem to take notice of certain things that should be noticed and addressed. Enjoyable part of job is having the ability to grow and show you can do well. Not so enjoyable is when answers don't come soon enough.

Patient Services Representative (Current Employee), Renton, WAApril 9, 2015
Pros: free parking
Cons: inability to advance in company unless medical/nursing degree or certification is obtained
I work at one of the primary care clinics as a PSR for 6 busy doctors. A large majority of the day is spent answering multi line telephones, taking Epic messages to relay back to medical staff, checking and responding to Mychart messages, processing referrals, checking in patients, collecting copays and verifying insurance. I enjoy going to work because of the great team that I work with. Everyone is helpful, supportive and we all have a common goal; making our patients first.

Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee), Las Vegas, NVDecember 13, 2014
Pros: free drinks, benefits, friendly staff
Cons: teamwork, no advancement, no challege
working at valley hospital was at time challenging, while at other times the best job I have ever had. visitors that come to the hospital to visit loved ones that were sick or having surgery it gives me reason to do the little things that I do. I have found that sometimes a simple smile or the littlest gesture can go a long way. I believe that Valley Hospital has molded me into more of a people person and more able to sense a person's needs before being asked.

Pros: discount lunches.
I worked with a lot of dedicated people that took their job seriously. That is important to me. I can't wait to work with them again in the near future. I love the location of this job because the commute was great for me and short. That made it possible to get my child off the bus when he got home after school.

For God's sake Med Techs don't work night shift at VMC!
Medical Technologist (Former Employee), Renton, WAOctober 8, 2014
Pros: nice updated equipment, true generalist work, good benifits, nice co-workers.
Cons: max stress, extremly busy, hostile and punitive.
This entire Lab is stressed to the max, but nights is the whipping boy. I've worked in other very busy stat labs but this place is horrible. I don't mind working my rear off, the day flies by. I loved the work, very much generalist work and they have a lot of nice new updated equipment. But the manager ruins the atmosphere. They're down 2 techs because the manager continues to run people off. (btw, they only advertise one at a time) When they hire someone they often don't last through the training period. You do lots here, nights/evenings do micro as well and it requires a 3 month training period and you need to be able to work short immediately for night shift. A major problem is that you're often put into positions where you can't follow protocol. I had 5 blood gases and 3 critical values in Chemistry and 4 critical values in Hematology. I was alone because the other tech was setting up a critical positive blood culture in Micro. There's no way to run the blood gases and call 7 critical values with in the 10 minute time frame allowed for each critical???

The manager rules with a negative attitude and pits people against each other. She encourages write-ups and has employees rate each other and tells you about random negative comments people say. The shifts are not treated equally and the leads tend to write up nights the most since they're writing up such trivial stuff they don't want to give them to the tech working next to them. The manager keeps an excel spread sheet with your mistakes, every one punitive and equal. If you entered a result wrong that counts the same as – more... putting dots (10.9.14) on your dates cause she likes slashes10/9/14. The Quality Assurance Reports where created as a learning process but they are all punitive. You work your guts out every night and in the AM all you see is angry faces, the atmosphere brings out the worst in everyone.

The Union rep says that she goes to Valley for more disciplinary reasons than all her other hospitals combined, that says it all. – less
