The culture is hostile, toxic and full of bullies. HR and management is a joke. Extremely un-safe staffing and high burn out rate as well as high turnover rate. Scheduling has no method or system. The insurance was cheap and the union protects staff, but also protects the bullies and poor-performers. Nursing assistants are treated horrible and receive zero respect from other staff and little to no help from the nurses. Retaliation is very real and feared.
Cross campus connectivity could sometimes be a challenge.
Pharmacy Manager/Clinical Pharmacist (Former Employee) – Haverhill, MA – April 22, 2019
Holy Family Hospital is a friendly place to work. Each department worked with the others to help make the patient's stay comfortable. Patients felt their needs were being met and that the staff was listening to them.

Org is keenly aware of our strategic business objectives and has delivered spot on coaching and consultation to our leadership team. Senior management is supportive and provide adequate resources to the junior staff
Data Auditor - Materials Management (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – March 6, 2019
I started in radiology as a patient transporter, then moved into materials management as a stock clerk. Then moved into the position of Inventory Control/Re-buyer. We implanted a new computer system and I moved into a Data Auditor position.
RN ICU (Former Employee) – Manitowoc, WI – March 3, 2019
Since healthcare has changed, all hospitals are short staffed per their budgets. Would not suggest working here until they are bought out by another corporation. Unsafe working conditions, no back up from management.
Pharmacy Buyer (Former Employee) – Methuen, MA – February 13, 2019
Holy Family Hospital is a Union Hospital. While the union provided inexpensive healthcare, schooling for those who wanted it, it also took 2 percent dues every paycheck. Plus, you could never rise to the top no matter how great you worked or how little you did. Everyone was the same.
Workplace allowed for stabilization and appropriate allocation of services for clients post discharge
Clinical Social Worker/ UR, Steward (Former Employee) – Haverhill, MA – February 8, 2019
Psychiatric unit had significant turnover of patients over 48 hour period. Social worker was able to address acute issues on the inpatient unit in this short time. The psychiatric unit provided group therapy and strong evidenced based treatment.
Clinical Social Worker/Case Manager (Former Employee) – Methuen, MA – January 17, 2019
A mostly supportive and interesting work experience. Compensation was consistent with similar positions regionally and solid benefits package. Hospital Social Work is a complex and challenging setting. Holy Family is a mid-sized hospital in a majority Spanish speaking city, so Spanish language fluency would be a big plus.
teamwork is encouraged, good benefits and compensation
RN (Former Employee) – Spokane, WA – January 2, 2019
I worked nights so teamwork was essential. I enjoyed the interaction with the patients. Patient load was 2 patients. . .could be very busy if both patients were intubated. Loosing a patient was probably the hardest part of the job.
