Clock in, get report and take care of my patients. Learned alot of organization skills,computer skills, communication skills. Management was not the best, they where not fair with everyone. workplace was alright. The job was not very hard. The most enjoyable part of my job was taking care of the patients.

I have been here for over 16 years and staff from top to bottom works together. Communication between co-workers is very good. Seeing someone outside of work that you took care of years ago and having them remember you and thanking you is something hard to describe, it feels so great.

Confluence Health is the organization created by the joining of Central Washington Hospital and Wenatchee Valley Medical Center. The monopoly has had a negative impact on health care as a whole for the valley and for both facilities as an employer. Employees of both facilities preferred their working situations before the affiliation as did the health care consumers in the Wenatchee Valley. Benefits and wages have deteriorated because the leadership has control of the whole local job market. There are good people from both organizations who strive to do good work, but the expertise required for management of a large organization is lacking in all levels. The current state of disorganization may be explained by growing pains which are solvable by conscious investment in experienced leadership from outside, but the problems of monopoly are likely permanent. Confluence Health needs to be more concerned with real solutions for patients and employees than with mere impression management.
