CULINARY ARTS TEAM MEMBER (COOK) (Current Employee) – Georgia – June 6, 2018
Working at CTCA is great for the departments that produce money or income for the company not so much for the back of the house employees. The chances for promotion is virtually non existent. The pay is not bad, but the cost of living increase are minimal. The benefits are amazing however for the line employees it is becoming increasingly expensive. The culture is good however has declined in the last 2 years due to restructuring of the company.

Survey Research Associate (Former Employee) – Zion, IL – February 15, 2018
My typical day involved interacting with patients and their caregivers. I learned that people deal with adversity in different ways. The management was very helpful to me by making room for my talents. The hardest part was dealing with death on a daily basses. The most enjoyable part was seeing people leave cancer free.
stakeholder (Current Employee) – Zion, IL – December 31, 2017
Unfortunately the hardest part of my job is poorly utilized personnel and lack of effective leadership for the manager. The culture of the company has been deminished due to unexpected and seemingly unfair layoff of quality personnel.
Patient Care Technician (PCT) (Former Employee) – Tulsa, OK – December 15, 2017
This job was one of my favorite. I loved taking care of my patients and meeting their family members. Often my patients would expire and I would take it hard, but then other patients would come to CTCA and I would have the chance to care for them also.
Uncertain future, great clinical staff, declining census, layoffs, uncomfortable culture
RN (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – November 1, 2017
Working with patients was the best part of the job. Physicians and nurses collaborated well and were respectful, friendly and collegiate. The clinical staff was by and large competent, if not excellent. Patients were universally treated well. The relationship between nurses and patients was warm and caring. The job was very satisfying in that regard.
The relationship between staff and new management was poor though, and the culture became uncomfortable despite the camaraderie among the staff.
The patient census dropped sharply and there were several runs of layoffs and resignations. It did not feel like a stable place to work after a while.
Specialty Care Tech/ Monitor Tech (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 17, 2017
As compared to other facilities the work load was far greater and had a far more vast job description but pay was not equivalent to the increased work load. The management was great but were often not honest about the current condition of the organization as a whole and hid layoffs until day of. The workplace culture was stressful but rewarding knowing we do the best for people.
CHARGE CAPTURE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Zion, Illinois – September 24, 2017
-Busy from start to end of shift -Management was not as good when I left as when I started. -The hardest part of the job was leaving all the people I formed long relationships with. -The most enjoyable was meeting all the patients and working with them.
Great place to work if you do not care about Advancement/Growth.
Registered Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Newnan – September 13, 2017
There are no opportunities for advancement for Medical Assistants. They will allow you on any committee to offer ideas for improvement, but you will never be qualified enough to work in other department. Also the Medical Assistant do the same work as RN/LPN and will not compensate appropriately. RN/LPN are under utilized.
Great for people that does not care about advancement.
Pay is not competitive, No room for growth, Job duties increase without pay, constant decrease in bonus.
ICU Special Care Technician (Former Employee) – Zion, IL – September 11, 2017
CTCA Zion was an interesting place to work. The ICU was small, but busy, and most of my co-workers were incredibly dedicated to their jobs. Hardest part of the job was having shady management and a for profit company, best part was the patients :)
Laboratory Courier/Receiving Clerk (Former Employee) – Zion, IL – September 7, 2017
CTCA has a great culture for excellent patient care and customer service. Stakeholders put the patient first and teamwork is good within departments and between departments. Stakeholders are encouraged to bring forth ideas and management is visible and listens to ideas.
Changes in healthcare marketplace have affected staffing levels
Inventory Control Specialist (Former Employee) – Newnan, GA – August 24, 2017
I was honored to have the opportunity to talk to patients dealing with cancer and even encourage them through faith and prayer. We are encouraged as employees to interact and talk to patients, regardless of your position with the hospital, without any reprimands.
