Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 5, 2016
My first time visiting Washington Hospital was exceptional. The staff was full and very nice and understanding. I immediately wanted to work there. I wanted to be apart of a staff so awesome. My first day working there I had plenty of help offered that wasn't needed, but seeing that showed that team work is key.
Patient Access Rep (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – May 24, 2016
I love the benefits provided by the hospital. we get discounts on wireless services and discounted rates for various things like amusement park and car rental. Health insurance is great. the hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult coworkers and sub par management. The bet part is making a difference in a patients life

Medical Office Assistant III (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – March 7, 2016
Great hospital to work for. Supervisors were usually fair, and there was a good blend of folks working together in my previous office. I hope to be able to return to the Washington Hospital Center in the near future. I have applied to a few positions recently, as my position here at WorkforceResources, Inc. is ending on 3/31/16.
Good physicians/supervisors to work for in the Cardiac Arrhythmia Ctr.
Phlebotomist I (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – January 11, 2016
I work for Washington Hospital center when I came out of phlebotomy school, I learned so much from everyone there. Without WHC I would not be the best Phlebomist I am today! Thank you WHC for my life long experience that has granted me access to other great job experiences.
registered nurse (Current Employee) – ICU – December 31, 2015
Lets see how to best describe the institution -"arranging deck chairs on the sinking Titanic"... Patients complaints are through the roof and satisfaction is in the toilet. The upper level management does not care about their managers while they get hefty bonuses for a failing hospital. Every department operates in a silo - the atmosphere is one of rudeness and totally unprofessional. The employee surveys are very bad, there is absolutely no accountability among associates, middle management, and definitely upper management. A lot of things and patients fall through the cracks. The hardest part of the job is trying to make sure that every patient gets the proper care needed and afforded to them. The lack of apathy observed is just staggering. Another thing is that, they don't want any fresh ideas - they are okay with their 20-30 year practice. It is an unbelievable place. The CEO pretends to care, but he does not even leave his office to really see what is going on in his hospital - why should he when he is getting his huge bonus whether the hospital does well or not. There is nothing really enjoyable about working at Washington Hospital Center - got sick from day 1. The CNO state she wants her leaders to have a work life balance - while she tell them to show up 8-10hr daily(but she has work life balance). She says she values her nursing leaders, but last year during the nursing strike, they had to work 5-7 12hr shifts straight missing time with our families, and how did she show her appreciation - $10 starbucks gift cards. WOW,but she got her bonus. I did learn howmore... to survive in a dysfunctional institution. I hope this helps anyone out there...If you decide to seek employment at WHC - know this, you will be working for a extremely rude, dirty, and dysfunctional institution... Good Luckless

Extremely high turn over in nursing, senior nurses can't wait to retire to be away from this horrible place. Nurses are never appreciated but only punished with any small comments from patients by management.
