Patient Access Specialist (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – November 19, 2018
It's a joy working around the children every day and seeing the smiles on their faces along with hearing stories and seeing how confident they are in life. Very few co-workers are a joy to be around and will help you. The insurance is way more then expected and then previous jobs. Some employees expect to much out of you and are lazy. I agree with others when stated how communication is a joke....the word you want others to hesr or it needs to get to others is lack of communication!!

Admirable mission. Rewarding to know you are helping kids and their families. Insurance world has gotten so very difficult to manage which is hurting reimbursement; this flows down to staffing budgets.
Helping Kids, Great Bens, Strong 401K plan, Regular Evals and Raises
Location changes all the time, seems without much forethought. Parking.

Children's is a GREAT place. It really is, and I think if you work on the medical side, the experience is probably quite a bit different from the IT side of things. In IT, it felt a bit toxic, definitely clique-ish, and a few too many employees that weren't willing to go the extra mile, the efficient or correct way, for their customers, the docs and nurses utilizing the software. Something always felt a bit "off" about the culture.
Love working at children's hospital, I love working with people, Eyes and ears open mouth shut because it can get you in trouble because of what someone thought you Said. Over all I really enjoyed it even though I no longer work there I hope I can go back someday.
Every other weekend off, Life insurance, Hospital insurance Easy to get along with everyone
Increase in pay, Don't always repeat what you hear.

top heavy management at Children's. always making cuts on the floor level while hiring new middle managers that make six figure salaries that don't make beneficial changes to the units or improve patient care. bottom line is what matters to this company. managers are poorly trained, only incompetent or outside applicants with no experience become managers at this place. negative culture where managers act like high schoolers and feed into toxic behaviors of staff. if you want to work with your worst bullies from high school and junior high then apply here. the health benefits are worse than being uninsured. family health insurance costs $600+ a month with a $8k deductible, nurses literally have babies and still haven't met their deductible.

Nice Organization but Lacking In Professional Development
Business Analyst (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – January 15, 2018
Children's Hospital & Medical Center has a strong culture of caring for the children and working towards the right thing but it lacks any kind of real professional development for non-clinical employees.
Centralized Scheduler (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – January 13, 2018
Children's Hospital was an incredible place to work. I enjoyed going to work every single day and the people I got to work with. Every day was something new and getting to meet new people (patients and their families) was a plus! I would recommend this facility to anyone. My family and I relocated to be closer to family, otherwise I would still be employed with Children's Hospital.

Surgery Scheduling Coordinator (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – June 14, 2017
The hospital is an amazing gift to children everywhere. The staff and medical teams are caring compassionate and highly dedicated. The care of these children is the number one focus. Teams will routinely do whatever anything to ensure a successful outcome.

While I believe Children's hospital has the best of intentions for the children, I believe that unfortunately, the operations of management is to hire part-time or casual as much as possible to avoid having to give their employees health insurance....which is sad in the health care industry. Staffing is also noticeably short many days, so much so ...that a worker can walk on the floors many days and never see a nurse. Small children and babies..particularly on weekends are in their rooms alone with little or no supervision. This is not the staff's fault...it is the management cutting costs and believing this is okay while advertising the excellent quality of care that Children's is supposedly well known for.
