Stressful environment with horrible management and team leaders
EVS Technician (Current Employee) – Fishersville, VA – October 10, 2018
If you enjoy having to do everything under the sun for low pay and no hopes of a raise anytime soon, terrible management who can’t stop what they’re doing on the computer to talk to you, rude team leaders who talk about you with others, and some employees who don’t carry their weight and don’t get in trouble for it... then the Evs department is for you.
Hospital Security Officer (Current Employee) – Fishersville, VA – July 24, 2018
Absolutely love my role at Augusta Health but the have many sources apples in my department. Females are not treated with the same respect as men or held as high when the do the same job. Want to advance but doesn't seem like an option. Want to learn but nobody will teach you. Low pay for what you do. Benefits are not affordable.

Clinical Team Leader/EMR Manager (Former Employee) – Waynesboro, VA – July 25, 2018
Typical day can be enjoyed being side by side with paitients and making a difference as a team player. Not always able to use skills to fullest. Like being a behind the scenes person making a difference.
team, nurses, patients
no support or advancement, not able to use all my skills
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Fishersville, VA – September 4, 2018
Augusta Health has been one of my favorite places to work thus far. All of the staffing (nurses, EMTs, physicians, NPs, directors, nursing supervisor, etc) worked cohesively and everyone supported one another through teamwork while allowing complete autonomy, It was an environment that bred knowledge and constantly taught without belittling anyone. The physicians were wonderful teachers and us nurses also were very receptive at teaching one another.
Housekeeper & Floor Tech (Current Employee) – Fishersville, VA – September 22, 2017

management does not want to accomodate with you and will not communicate good
The absolute pit hole! Director of Radiology is very inadequate.
xray tech (Current Employee) – radiology – June 4, 2014
Management is only interested in patient satisfaction ratings and could care less about the employees. Employees are overworked, understaffed, working thru lunches, etc. Environmental services is so understaffed they don't even have time to clean bathrooms.
It's a shame that the Director of Radiology and the CEO of this hospital are outright ruining this place. Small town hospital with big boy politics. They are not interested in improving the work environment or in keeping employees happy. Physicians are allowed to yell at, and demean the workers. Same employees keep getting written up & getting warnings without any action, yet other employees are treated the same. You are just told to smile and "wow" the patients so they give the hospital a good review. Bad review means no raise...they hold that very seriously over your head. It doesn't matter about the quality of your work, how well you get along with co-workers, or how much you do above and beyond your normal duties - none of that matters, ONLY the patient satisfaction reviews matter to them.
If they were that interested in us "wowing" our patients they would do more to keep us happy and not overlook problems and would solve them! Total waste of my professional time to work here. I've never worked at a place that cared so little for their employees.
Director of Radiology rings the bell for Salvation Army and looks as if he is "volunteering", but he is getting paid to do it.... not my idea of volunteer work. Director of Radiology actually tells his personal friends to go to RMH to seek orthopedic services.more... Very unprofessional. If we were to do that, we would be fired on the spot! He literally fell into the position and isn't qualified to do the job, but really, what does it take to sit at a desk and go to meetings?! He's a smart alec with a big attitude. Don't cross him or he will make you miserable.less
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Fishersville, VA – October 30, 2015
The phlebotomy supervisor is only out to benefit herself and not the team. Most all the team members there are only out to get you...in other words they make up anything they can, bring it to the supervisor and they work out a plan to get you fired. You have to be part of the 'it' club to succeed there. That's why there is such a HIGH turnover rate in the phlebotomy department. It's the management encouraging gossip, back stabbing and lying. Other than that, this company is great to work for. Just DON'T work in the phlebotomy department.
Medical Laboratory Scientist (Former Employee) – Fishersville, VA – November 27, 2012
Augusta Health is a very pleasant place to work with a strong culture, good benefits and high patient satisfaction. The only drawback would be that it is a community hospital and if you want to advance or strive for more learning opportunities there are less available than in a setting of a teaching hospital.
management has went to the dogs in the department of patient access
patient access representative (Current Employee) – virginia fishersville – January 24, 2017
benefits are good but other than that they really are not a family community hospital anymore it has changed and left employees drained and feeling unappreciated management in the patient access department are pushing people to their limit that some have quit and others are looking for more jobs.
short breaks, management is horrible, meals are expensive
Operating Room Nursing Attendant (Former Employee) – Fishersville, VA – April 20, 2018
A day's work varied based on how busy we were, but we were overall understaffed and struggled to get everything done. Despite my experience and degree, finding work that commensurated with this, was challenging.
Overall breakdown in team dynamics, short staffed, overworked
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) – Fishersville, VA – October 10, 2014
My typical day at work starts from opening the office and answering phone calls to clearing the fax machine. Addressing any urgent needs before the "day starts". I then assist patients at check in by verifying their name dob address phone number and insurance information, collect their copay or any paid on accounts if needed and let the nursing staff know the patient is ready for them. I also check the patient out after they have met with the provider and set up additional appointments if needed along with any needed blood work to be done. At the end of the day I enter and total all charges and collect all the money from the day, then enter all necessary information on to the bank deposits and excel spreadsheets.
I truly enjoy my co-workers in every way, we have all become a family. I not only enjoy my co-workers but I enjoy my patients as well.
The hardest part of my day is having to relay bad medical information to patients.
