Medical Technologist (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – January 2, 2019
Some areas work better than others. Chemistry has serious instrument problems that have been going on for years, hopefully, the problems will be fixed soon.
Employee parking is a struggle. The closer employee parking lot is generally full and its spaces are not reserved, so the few available spaces are often taken by visitors. The company offers the upper floors of a parking garage... 4 blocks away, which is a problem on rainy days. Parking during rainy days also involves getting feet wet in flooded streets. However, you can be fired if you get caught 3 times parking in non-employee spaces. Upper management has other employee unfriendly rules that inspire employees to leave.
Better pay than most other hospitals in the area.
Upper management is punitive in its rules, does not try to make the place a better place to work.
The “worker bees” are not appreciated. The boss has her favorites, to whom she listens, & favors. Benefits, such as tuition assistance , are appreciated. Usually too busy to take the 1/2 hr. Lunch break.
Gift Shop Volunteer Service Teenage Volunteer (Former Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – October 2, 2018
I think this is a great opportunity if you want exposure to the hospital setting. I enjoyed that for every 4 hours of volunteering you received a meal coupon. I also enjoyed the fact that there are multiple locations that you can volunteer
I was a clinical student at Boca Regional so my main job there was to follow a tech , start the patients vitals and make sure they are comfortable. I would also start the exam and take pictures before the tech came in. The tech would make sure I got what they needed.
This is a good place to work, but the pay leaves something to be desired. I took a substantial pay cut to take my job here. Some of that was that I needed a job at the time and some of it was because I like my manager. He was supportive and didn't micromanage me. He allowed me to take care of my employees the way I saw fit, but if I needed help he would be there to support me. However, I was promised a significant pay increase with this budget cycle and didn't get it plus I have decided to take my career in a different direction so I chose to leave BRRH. The benefits are great, but the pay not so much.
This is a great facility. Lots to learn. Management is very efficient and knowledgeable. Every member of the staff works well together. Also, this hospital is near the beach so after a hard night, a drive to the beach does the trick.
Health Unit Coordinator/Clinical Assistant II (Current Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – August 1, 2018
Great team of people to work with. Directors and Clinical Mgrs. are super awesome! The Directors are very accommodating if you're interested in attending school, and most will allow for your schedule to reflect this choice! Overtime is readily available if its season, and its great for your OT pay!
Great coworkers but focused more on satisfaction than healthcare
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Boca Raton, FL – July 25, 2018
I love my coworkers here and day to day enjoyed working here. Unfortunately, the higher ups are always more focused on satisfaction scores from patients than the actual healthcare being provided. Instead of worrying about the working environment and respecting their employees, administration was constantly pleasing snotty rich Boca Raton residents who often treated the inpatient areas as a seven star hotel instead of a hospital focused on getting sick people better.
Worked in very serious environment due to nature of work pathologists performed. Overall work culture was very professional and stressful. I did learn a lot about pathology and its role in overall patient care. Hardest part of job was to perform duties perfectly and under a lot of pressure to never make a mistake. I did not care for the most recent manager and felt she was not effective as a manager. The most enjoyable part of my job was feeling I was providing an important service and assuring the best patient care possible. I enjoyed my overall job and felt like I was contributing to the overall care of each patient. Breaks were very short (30 minute lunch) and work was performed with much scrutiny.
