Respiratory Care Clinical Resource Lead (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – March 18, 2019
Loyola is a good place to master your clinical skills. You will gain much experience in your medical field and have opportunity for advancement. Patient care is great but leadership can be absent and at the same time critical of your performance and duties.
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – Burr Ridge, IL – March 16, 2019
I left Loyola after Trinity bought them out. The new management had ridiculous standards for productivity and frequently sent me home early or did not pay me for patient cancellations. Often was taken from my PTO which did not allow me a full vacation. Ended up working longer hours with more to do on my checklist everyday.
Labor and Delivery Nurse (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – March 3, 2019
Loyola University Medical system was my first place of employment folllowing graduation. They truly embodied everything I had learned in nursing school in terms of treating the human spirit. They aligned with my mission and values as a health system.
Emergency Department Technician (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – February 27, 2019
I believe that Loyola strives for a great patient experience, but as an employee working in the ER I have to say that we are heavily understaffed. We would all perform better if we could have adequate staff and then the patient experience would improve as well.
Registered Nurse Clinician, Cardiovascular Surgery (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – February 12, 2019
At Loyola, the staff and providers that I had the opportunity to work with were not only great at what they did, but had compassion for all the patients they came into contact with. It is a great team at Loyola, which is essential in such a high volume facility.
Very punitive working environment. Management seems to look for ways to write up some employees, this negates having to provide a 2% annual raise.
Manager (Former Employee) – Main campus – January 17, 2019
The patient scheduling systems and insurance verification systems are antiquated and ineffective. Most is a manual process which is very timely causing delays of patient care. Email is Outlook 2010 and unsecured. Equipment is old and poorly maintained, breaking down often. Not the expectation of a university medical system. High turnover of staff. The majority of senior leaders resigned in fall of 2018 following an employee separation program targeting employees over age 50 with more than 10 years experience. The CEO also resigned. Now Loyola hires new grads without experience to save money. Not a safe patient experience. Loyola is in trouble financially and increases patient copayments to compensate. Added a “facility charge “ for outpatient procedures. Housekeeping is non existent increasing patient infection rates. Employees are expected to always be available and flexible with scheduled work hours with little notice and no additional compensation except for nurses. Nothing is done to follow through on employee satisfaction low scores.
Some good physicians
High turn over of staff. High cost of insurance. Parking is challenging. Management is ineffective, only care about nursing. Aged equipment.
Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – January 16, 2019
I began as a full-time employee and transitioned to registry. I currently work weekends and continue to enjoy my time there. As with most jobs, I wish my pay were a bit more. However, the job is flexible, fun, and I feel like I am making a difference. I enjoy my coworkers and the management team.
Excellent opportunities for professional growth and a rich and wonder cultural blend of both work professionals, staff and patients
Allergy Clinic RN, Burr (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL 60153 – January 14, 2019
Challenging, inspirational and rich cultural experience. Look forward to coming to work every day. A particular job experience and opportunity for growth has direct correlation to one's immediate Clinical Coordinator's support of nursing, style and level of experience.
Cook (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – January 12, 2019
This is not a good place to work because of the hostile work environment. You have to deal with harassment from workers and managers and human resources does not protect your rights.. I also had to deal with physical abuse by mangers.
Dynamic Scheduler (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – January 8, 2019
Scheduled appointments. Efficiently handled large volume of phone calls. Communicated closely with nurses and physicians. Verified insurances for government and commercial insurances. I liked talking with patient on the phone
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – December 11, 2018
Loyola is good for a first time hospital job. but no where to stay long term unless you live close. Management on 5news is not the best don't care if the floor is short. they will not answer if you call but get mad when you call off. doctors statements is not enough for this company you have to die before you can call off. over all 5news suck!!!!!
Shuttle Driver (Current Employee) – Maywood, IL – December 5, 2018
I choose to work at this location because it's close to home and it literally takes me about 10 minutes to get there and home. I enjoy having weekends and holidays off. I know the majority of the people I interact with and we share our daily experiences to keep each other in the know. My job is really easy and it's not stressful but at times there are minor issues that my manager resolves.
PHYSICIAN BASED CODER (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – November 29, 2018
While I wouldn't give Loyola five stars, I wouldn't say that my time working with them was all bad. There were a lot of great people that I worked with on a daily basis. I came to Loyola during a time of transition so things were up in the air in my department.
Accountant (Former Employee) – Maywood, IL – November 15, 2018
I would definitely not recommend any one to work in the finance department. It has a high turn over rate, people come and go. There is no structure, no training and the controller is out of control, unprofessional and constantly yelling...very unstable person. If you want a stressful job Loyola is the place. It is sad to see bad managers give a company a bad name...hope corporate makes changes, because word gets around that it is not a good place to work at.
