Defines Chaotic
Clinical Liaison (Former Employee) –  Sacaton, AZSeptember 10, 2018
The benefits are absolutely amazing - the healthcare plan is one of the best around. However, the environment is so stressful that you WILL wind up using all of your benefits plus. The tribe is hostile to non-natives (this includes African-Americans and Hispanic as well Euro-Americans and other tribes), management is absolutely dysfunctional and corrupt.

Community members are great but managememt is horrible and plays favorites
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Sacaton, AZJuly 8, 2018
I loved working with community members and serving them but managers were bullies if you did your job correctly. They reward people for complaining and noy doing the job correctly, and do not acknowledge hard work and team work. They will pick until they get you out. They do not resolve conflict but create it. Definitely a great place to work if they would find better managers
Pros
Great community members
Cons
Poor management

Medical Transporter (Former Employee) –  Sacaton, AZJune 27, 2018
It's been a month since I left & still have not been paid. In medical transport received text from office that gunshots were reported in area we were going to & be careful. Be prepared to work more than 10 hours a shift & know something about mechanics because transportation does not a fleet service department. Beware of bedbugs.
Pros
Wasn't there long enough to experience any pros
Cons
Starting @3am. Shifts longer than 10 hours, no vehicle maintenance service

Board of directors needs to oversee management better
Management (Former Employee) –  Sacaton, AZApril 20, 2018
CEO allows and promotes unfair labor tactics in different facilities throughout the corporation. Employees are not allowed to truly dispute unrealistic discipline from their superiors. Requardless of their years of dedication and honesty and hard work.
Comments are made behind closed doors that community members are uneducated and feel entitled and nothing is done about it when the truth is brought to the forefront. Not everyone just wants to get even for mistreatment. Gila River is an amazing community and lead by a great council. The health care corporation should not be allowed to continue operating without stronger oversight by council leaders.
Pros
Excellent benifits
Cons
Grhc leadership

GRHC is a customer service focused organization
RN Director Out Patient Services (Former Employee) –  Sacaton, ArizonaApril 13, 2018
GRHC is unique in that it is truly customer service focused. That is the bottom line.It is an amazing environment for a healthcare professional. The work week really is 40 hours, they do not expect you to work late/evenings. Patient care volume is low: expectation is to see 2 patients per hour. Staffing is abundant, each provider has 1 MA. 1 RN supports about 5 providers. This makes for a less stressful environment than most out patient settings.
Our goal was simply to provide exceptional service to our patients in the manner they desired. As a provider to the Gila River Indian Community we provided culturally competent care.
GRHC is a very collaborative and supportive organization.

Great Co-Workers But No Recogniton from Management for Your Work
Clinical Liaison (Current Employee) –  Sacaton, AZMarch 1, 2018
The clients are great to work with and the job itself offers great learning experiences due to the clients you get to work with. Management especially in the behavioral health department is another story. All they care about are the numbers and whether you achieved your productivity for the month. There is no recognition from management for your good work. All you receive on a daily basis is criticism and your need to complete one task or another. Very high burn out rate! Case managers are treated very poorly despite doing the majority of the work. The HR department is a joke and the pay is not comparable to the amount of education, licenses and experience that you have.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
Upper management, low pay, work volume

Toxic and abusive environment for case managers in behavioral health
Case manager, behavioral health (Current Employee) –  Sacaton azDecember 9, 2017
Unreasonable caseloads, unreasonable expectations, uncaring management/administration. . The numbers are the most important thing. The clients and case managers are at the bottom. Case managers are treated like slaves instead of professionals. Harrassment and bullying by management is the norm and allowed to flourish. It’s a challenge to stay healthy in such a toxic environment.
Pros
Nice coworkers, the clients are good to work with
Cons
Harassment, bullying, overworked, micromanagement

Behind the times
Director (Former Employee) –  Sacaton, AZNovember 29, 2017
I loved working for Gila River Healthcare and would recommend it to anyone looking to start or advance their careers; however, their policies and handling of employment matters is behind the times. It's a brand new world out there, GRHC, catch up.

Like most companies, GRHC is trying to operate lean but to their own detriment- turnover is incredibly high and employee complaints are petty/unnecessary (a product of hiring people ill-equipped to handle difficult situations). Changes were starting to happen when I left but there is much work to be done here. Example: Placing too much focus on covering tattoos is a waste of time (again, new world out there) and distracts from more important issues such as a dwindling budget for a multi-million dollar project that ultimately went belly up, leaving an empty building guarded by security officers (so much for operating lean).

All in all, great company to work for but they have much room for improvements. I loved the people who I worked with and would go back promptly if an appropriate position opened up.
Pros
Compensation packages are phenomenal; work environment is improving
Cons
Policies need to be in line with societal norms and not so 'big brother' in nature
