Working at Frisbie has been a great experience. It helped me advance my nursing assistant skills and has given me many opportunities to learn. Frisbie has a community feel and everybody works as a team.
Medical imaging Multi modality tech (Former Employee) – Rochester, NH – March 24, 2019
The radiology and CT lead techs spend more time mapping out their vacations than they do working. Very unprofessional speaking poorly about staff to other staff. They also share other employees disciplinary action with everyone. Several of us have left in the last few months and they still refuse to make any changes from what I’ve heard. The director is useless and if you have a problem or concern he turns it back on you.
LNA (Current Employee) – Rochester, NH – March 7, 2019
The pay for LNAs here is crazy low. Their PTO would be great if you didn't have to use it all the time because of being cut from shifts. They took away the 401k match, no more holiday bonus, and it now after hiking insurance premiums it costs us $200 a pop to walk into our own ER.
RN (Current Employee) – Barrington, NH – February 19, 2019
There have been many staffing and management restructuring changes since I have worked for FMH. This is not the patient care environment I prefer for my career. The camaraderie within the staff and the relationship between staff and providers make it an enjoyable work place
I did not formally work at Frisbie, however I did 3 clinical rotations there at their cardiac care unit, geriatric psychiatry unit, and Spaulding. I enjoyed all three clinical rotations and found the staff to be very educated and approachable.

With all the hospitals merging, Frisbie is one of the last small hospitals. It really felt like a family environment. You walk down the halls and everyone says hi or smiles at you. So welcoming. Management is consistent and fair. Wages are a bit low.
CNA (Former Employee) – Rochester, NH – April 3, 2018
I worked on the Gero-Psych unit and it could be stressful and demanding or it could be quiet and relaxed, it all depended upon the patients on any given night. The staff for the night shift was excellent and worked together very well as a team.
I enjoy drawing blood, especially when a patient is very anxious and after the blood is drawn they thank me and tell me it was a lot better than they thought. I also never tire of a patient saying, "I never felt the needle". I will say that I have never worked for a company that went above and beyond the "micro-manage" spectrum. The management in the laboratory are very quick to shoot down any ideas that the phlebotomists have to improve workflow and efficiency. There is a lack of respect among co-workers and I believe that starts at the top. The goal of the immediate management in the lab is of how fast you can get a patient drawn rather than making the patient feel comfortable with the procedure.
Phlebotomist (Current Employee) – Rochester, NH – December 30, 2017
I have been employed with Frisbie for just under 20 years.... It has always been a good place to work.... they give us great benefits and the hospital is small enough so most everyone knows everyone in all the departments...
There are a lot of amazing people who work here and I’m glad I had the opportunity to be able to work in this environment. Everyone feels like a part of your family but unfortunately you can’t go far being in housekeeping.
Scheduler (Former Employee) – Rochester, NH – November 23, 2017
Great tend patients for appointments, scheduled follow up appointments. Answered incoming calls forwarded to correct department.. Patients were so pleasant to work with. The physicians were very nice to work with.
I took, placed and delivered meal orders to the patients. I didn't much. Management was clueless. The workplace culture was cutthroat. The hardest part of the day was going to work and the most enjoyable part was going home.
