Gifford is a classic small community hospital. It has a warm family feel. The birthing center is amazing, with high quality family centered care. It's not big and shiny and there's not a tremendous amount of room for growth, but it has a lot of heart.

I loved the people! It was a great place to work with very sweet people! I hated my travel CT/Xray job was over. But 1 year is the max I could stay. And I did just that.
Pros
Great employees to work with!
Cons
Slower at times than I was use too.

Gifford is a relatively smaller community hospital but this allows for greater patient customer service as well as more of a chance to further educate patients.

I have worked at Gifford Medical Center for almost 20 years. It is truly a wonderful hospital and a great place to work. I appreciate immensely the fact that the floor is always well staffed and that the nurse patient ratio is usually at a safe and manageable level. I believe this helps to create a happy less stress environment and really gives the nurse the opportunity to get to know and understand their patients needs!

No chance for advancement here. No money. Back stabbing coworkers. If you are not one of Gifford’s finest you are no one here. Management plays favorites. You work while others sit and get paid.

Gifford is a great organization with lots of opportunity in the Central VT area. Many employees have worked there for years which speaks highly of the organization. Previous management and HR were left unchecked and there were many problems, but the organization seems to have straightened out the issues and has new management/HR.
Pros
Friendly and Convenient
Cons
Favoritism and pay disparity by former HR management.

One of the lowest paying hospitals (actually, I believe the lowest paying) in the state. Management seems to operate through a system of rumor and conjecture, and if you are not one of their favorites, it does not matter what the rumor is, or who is saying it, they will believe it and use it against you. The hospital seems to foster a constant state of unease. The Environmental Services team is looked down upon by all other staff in the hospital, and are viewed as untouchables. This is largely due to management in Environmental Services, their incompetence and the contempt that they hold for their own people and for the department.
Pros
None
Cons
Too numerous to list

not great pay for as much stress and pressure you are under. I was working under very strict doctors that each had different wants in how the office ran which made being the secretary very stressful and hard to please everyone.

Gifford is geared toward rewarding and keeping their medical staff. As a result, the support staff is often overlooked by management. The human resources department needed redirection.

Everything was pretty great, I learned a lot about how to deal with people, even the angry ones, I learned my way around scheduling, rescheduling. I learned filing and I did a lot with referrals, and putting them in the computer once they've been sent out. Everyone there seemed generally pretty happy, management was good, and the most enjoyable part was at the end of the day reflecting on how much you did and feeling proud and accomplished.

Worst healthcare organizations to work for. The new leadership is two faced, lacks professionalism and truly doesn't understand the meaning of ethics.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Everything (bait and switch)
