Absolutely grateful for the time I worked here. I learned so much and enjoyed my coworkers. Working here allowed me to finish my degree and move on with so much knowledge of Hospital daily operations. I had the best supervisor you could ask for, she was skilled and knowledgeable in all aspects of her job. I worked in the main hospital lab and the outpatient lab doing phlebotomy and specimen receiving. Totally hated I had to leave

Great facility with good benefits, but they need to match the cost of living in my area. No increased pay for specialty areas like ICU or ER either. Could be an excellent job if they would step up the salary.
A great place to work and would love to continue working for Christus. A typiocal work day is okay, have learned alot there, hires people of all cultures, catholic enviroment, loved working in the operating room.
Teamwork is a great part of this facility. We go above and beyond to help each other to insure our patients get the best care as much as possible. I strive to be a great team player on every shift work.

Management is absolutely terrible. They don't know how to do your job, but have absolutely no problem telling you how to do it. Expect you to give certain responses to upper management but don't tell you before hand. They reprimand you twice (two months apart) when the right response isn't given to upper management if they FEEL like you don't think you did anything wrong. They expect you to to smile at all times or as I was instructed by management "fake it til I make it". They are so short handed they pull you from your job constantly even when your the only nurse for that job. They overwork you to the point it's exhausting and discouraging. They will not hire more help, but will make promises to do that they won't fulfill. The hide behind a Christian facade. They don't practice what they preach. Even if you have a nursing license they treat you as if you don't and are not qualified to make nursing decisions. They make doing your job absolutely impossible. They expect perfection without returning it to you. Terrible company to work for I would honestly suggest running the other way.
No breaks, no paid holidays, bad management, and terrible to employees

I love working at this facility!! My coworkers are now family and are very encouraging! There is always room for improvement but honestly, I really wouldn't stop working here unless something better comes along, which seems kind of tough.
The case load for nurses may be a lot at ttimes but there are always other nurses or CNAs and even the nurse manager was there to help when it wasw really needed. There were times it was stressful, but was manageable.
