Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – August 14, 2018
Enjoyed working here, it was a few years back... before the merger. I don't really know how it is now. I appreciated having the educational opportunities when available. Not sure about a merger....seems somewhat like a monopoly...which is never good. Competition is always good....good for patients and good for employees. If you are the only game in town, you can do whatever you want, and quite frankly, you don't have to be good to either. What choices would one have?
RN (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – August 14, 2018
Was hoping things may change with Ballad, but looks doubtful. They would prefer to hire agency nurses to work for nearly $50 an hour than pay in-house employees more than $18.13 base pay. Very disappointing and doesn't make a lot of sense from a business standpoint. Manager was also very unapproachable and cause a lot of anxiety/stress at work. Surprised she is still there.

It is a great work environment and you have so many opportunities to learn about the medical field and if desire they will help you go back to school to pursue education in the medical field. I have no complaints at all other than the low pay.
Management cares more for yes people than doing job correctly.
ICU Bedside Registered Nurse (RN) (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – July 13, 2018
Management was not easy to work with and personally I felt it was a hostile work environment. While I learned a lot in the facility (it made me a stronger nurse), I felt like every day was going to be the day that I lost my license.
Wonderful Co-Workers admit a Stressful Environment
Patient Care Partner (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – April 16, 2018
Absolutely lovely people to work with in an environment that can cause the worst to come out in people at times. Through all the stress and exhaustion in a sense of pride and generosity that is unmatched.

Inpatient Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee) – Johnson City, TN – March 5, 2018
Very relaxed atmosphere and always moving around the hospital. Very flexible working hours with a caring staff that encourages new opportunities for learning and growing as a team. Followed a typical routine workflow everyday to ensure quality assurance within the pharmacy department. Learned procedures of compounding, inventory control, medication-delivery systems and much more. Most enjoyable part of the job is being physically active moving around the hospital communicating with healthcare personnel and always learning something new within the pharmacy department each day.
Currently serves as Registered nurse shift leader (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN 37601 – November 30, 2017
great workplace if you have a lot of nursing experience. Managers do a great job! scheduling is great but you have to work a lot of overtime hours to have a great check at the end of each pay period.. clinical leaders are very caring and take good care of staff needs. team work is amazing depending on who your boss is.
Microbiologist (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN 37601 – November 8, 2017
The work atmosphere is very stressful and tense. Employees are disgruntled and very unsatisfied. Lots of backbiting, co-worker bashing, mostly from older techs dissatisfied with their positions and advancement. It's a very hard place to work, no team work.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Johnson City, TN – October 5, 2017
I enjoy my job and I love my coworkers. Management is truly wonderful. Depending on which department you work in depends on how busy it will be. Some are extremely busy while others are very slow. All in all, it is a good job.
Meet all kinds of different people.
It's impossible to move up without transferring to another location.
