My experience there was good. I was pulled in many directions but quickly learned to manage my duties and time well. I had a good attitude and liked helping people but the hours were long and tiring. It could get stressful at times so I made sure to take my breaks.
Houston Methodist is a decent place to work. The best thing about working there is that some of the employees make it a pleasure to work with. The environment is pleasant as well as the décor of it,as it is aesthetically appealing.

Medical Social Worker (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 21, 2018
There is little to no management support of the staff. High turnover rate of directors a in the Case Management and Social Work department. Limited continuity. Loved working with families and patients.
As a Transplant Coordinator I manage about 110 patients and it grows as new transplant are done. I see patients in clinic on Mondays and Tuesdays and see them for follow up care and any post transplant complications. there is a Transplant Protocol for the institution and I make sure it is followed unless there are certain exceptions for the patients. I coordinate the care between the patient, social services, financial as well as patient assistance to be able to to provide the best care for the patient and there families. I also participate in research as well as Grand Rounds. Continuing education is very important to us in caring for our patients. We work as a team and we work well together and we earned the No. 1 Heart Transplant program fro CareChex for 2017.
The co-workers are friendly and the hospital is a great place to work at.Great bonuses and reasonable benefits. They have great 401ks and good health insurance. Good Vacation time. And excellent discounts for all employees.
Huge hospital, therefore my experience is different compared to the others. My supervisor gave me the great liberty to organize my working schedule freely. Overall good experience, long weekly meeting but I can't complain about anything else.
Show up on your floor only to find out your being pulled to a floor you've never worked and someone else was pulled to replace you from another floor. Learned that being FT didn't mean on the floor that I was hired for... Management: has been a disappointment because job description is now is different then when I was hired. Changes being made without collaboration of employees.
Intern (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – February 14, 2018
I had a good experience at my internship and learned a lot. People here are generally friendly and helpful, which is something that is ingrained into their overall culture. However, their onboarding process is cumbersome and the employees who handle it are rude and unhelpful.
Certified Surgical Technologist II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – February 9, 2018
There is a strong team environment with most coworkers looking to help you. Some cases will be challenging. The surgeon culture is becoming more modernized and appropriate for today's age. The new building will hopefully make things much easier. The department does need more surgical technologists to meet the demands. Magnet recognition. A good teaching hospital to learn in. I learned cardiac, thoracic, vascular, and transplant services.
This is an excellent place to work. Management is supportive, the working environment is diverse. The nursing team is collaborative, and the the education department is very supportive to nurses and help them achieve their goals.
