Cook/Dietary aide (Current Employee) – Coupeville, WA – June 12, 2016

Health Unit Coordinator (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – May 19, 2016
My daily tasks consisted of interpreting and entering physician orders as well as auditing patient's records. I very much enjoyed the interaction I had with patients and staff. As communication is important in every environment, lack of said communication is my only complaint about being employed as a Health Unit Coordinator.
Manager (Former Employee) – Pharmacy – April 12, 2016
Very toxic environment with administration and management dysfunction. If you bring forward any discrepancies in care, documentation and or billing or question any of their new policies set forth with the latest regime,I.e to include alcohol to wine and dine potential doctors (on tax payers dollars) you will be targeted,labeled and eventually terminated on trumped up claims. Tremendous amount of cover-up dreadfully unethical.
No cohesive team work. Work is driven by fear factor of being terminated
Full time Radiologic Technologist and CT per diem (Current Employee) – Coupeville, WA – January 22, 2016
I've worked at this hospital for over 5 years. I've enjoyed it until recently due to new management and policies that have changed it. The hospital is poorly funded for whatever reason. Equipment is old, the interior is outdated, and getting things fixed or replaced is near impossible despite the fact the hospital charges more for services than comparable hospitals in the area. If you live on Whidbey Island, this is the only game in town and is an ok place to work. If you live elsewhere, I wouldn't advise relocating for a job here as there are plenty of other hospitals that are managed better and have the capital to replace equipment.
CT/MRI/XR Tech (Current Employee) – Coupeville, WA – November 19, 2015
Whidbey Island is very beautiful. The staff are wonderful to work with but Whidbey is going through many changes in management. This causes change upon change. If you adapt to change well you will love it.
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – July 22, 2015
Can be a difficult place to work for staff with an administration that is anti union. The RN and CNA staff do a great job with a great manager. The upper level administration is too heavy handed and does not communicate well with staff.
Great experience - except that it was a temp position.
Clerk IV - DI (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – February 11, 2014
This was a per-diem shift, so I helped in several departments. I greeted, registered, and ordered diagnostic tests for patients. I would print the mammogram schedules, pull the films, and make reminder phone calls.
I enjoyed everything about this job. I love my line of work. I am good with patients and office support positions.
Community Relations Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – February 1, 2013
My time at WGH was wonderful (1998-2000). Executives were very in tune with keeping employees happy. I was blessed to have a very motivating supervisor, who I continue to look up to. Cafe had wonderful meals! Before I left, the CEO was resigning and they were headed towards a patients first vision.
cafe, short commute if you live on island, support continuing educatiob
in small town...different mentality if you are from the city
Health Care Assistant Certification (Current Employee) – Coupeville, WA – May 23, 2013
Whidbey General has been a good place to work, it's been good to me over the years but it is time to move on. The culture is not what it used to be and is declining in support for employees. Administration does not have employees best interest at heart, they will stab you in the back in a second. My advice to you if you were looking for a job here is to keep looking, you will be unhappy after a while and there is no real chance for growth within.
good benefits however really look at the fine print
no successful management teams, disrespectful attitude toward one another, always breaking federal guidelines
Student Radiographer (Current Employee) – Coupeville, WA – December 5, 2012
While working at Whidbey General Hospital I have learned all of the things necessary to become a successful radiologic technician. My day usually consists of several outpatient exams in the morning along with flouroscopic examinations. The evening shifts consist of more emergency department exams. Throughout my time working here the co-workers have been professional and courteous in their work.

Medical transcriptionist (Former Employee) – Coupeville – October 14, 2012
Administration by intimidation. Current CEO is not in touch with community. Place is falling apart and is old. Think long and hard before applying here. They never pay OT consistently. Outsourced transcriptionists in most unprofessional way - where were their standards of behavior then? Lab staff leaving and fed up.
Self Pay COLLECTOR (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – October 1, 2012
The Mediical Professional's are exactly that,top notch and the care they give to the patients is outstanding. While employed at Whidbey General there was 3 different CEO'S, the 1st CEO was the original when the Hospital first opened he and the 2nd were devoted to all fascets of operating,expanded growth and creating a valuable and reputable institution on Whidbey Island. With the hiring of the 3rd however this has truly been the demise and distruction of Whidbey General. The Management team and the many Directors should be ashamed and disgusted with themselves for the manner in which they have HANDLED BUSINESS it is a travasty and will take more then words to formulate any kind of admission of failure on their part to correct all the wrong doings they have inflected on their employees. inflected on their employees
support (Former Employee) – Coupeville – January 28, 2013
While the pay and benefits were very adequate, the management has gone downhill steadily, and currently is on a mission to remove or drive away full time and union staff. Dishonest and unsupportive. My advice would be to stay clear of WGH until there is a major overturn in middle and upper management.
Respiratory Therapist (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – November 29, 2012
I enjoyed working at WGH. All of the employees that worked there were very friendly and always willing to help each other. The hardest part of my job was when it got really busy at night because I worked alone.
small hospital. job included many different areas of respiratory.
driving to work in the snow, but i still enjoyed even that.
Want to be a slave to the system and work for a company that can care less about problems you may have?
Clerk (Former Employee) – Coupeville, WA – June 27, 2014
During orientation I accidentally fell asleep, I had been up for over 24 hours by then. Then there was a problem with me wearing sneakers when I told one of the hr girls I was gonna wear what I normally do for my previous job since I was going straight there to work my last day. Had she said no I would have gladly put them in my car until I was done. When I was reprimanded for being tired I was told shape up or ship out. No concern to any unforseen circumstances going on at the time. I shaped up, I conformed but they already had it set to get rid of me and I am not eligible to apply with them ever again. They make a big deal during orientation how they chose us as employees.
on call positions get bonus pay in lieu of paying over $200 for their medical.
absolutely no concern for anything going on in your life. if you are an employee, you are nothing more than a slave.
An organizaiton in the midst of a transformational culture change.
Learning and Performance Coordinator (Current Employee) – Coupeville, WA – February 24, 2013
The organization continues its journey; going from a good hospital to a great hospital. Action, alignment and accountability are the three tools in the tool box to execute such a profound change to its culture. It is a great place to work.
