Analyst (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – September 16, 2018
Management is very unaware of any day to day activities that goes on within their teams that they are managing. They try to be a part of the groups by either micromanaging or constantly bickering for info. They may be certified or went to EPIC to get their proficiency / certifications, however they lack the knowledge of a trainer or builder, and just know their role as a corporate person (some do not even know how to properly manage). They push for work life balance, however expect you to do the impossible all the time. To finish work that cannot be done in a normal day, or finish projects that take more time than what is listed within their heads. Working with the other analysts / trainers who have the knowledge and understanding of the day to day job makes the role more desirable. Even having your SMEs having a complete understanding was a great bonus. But the lack of communication between upper management and their staff makes it an obvious choice why they have such a high turnover rate among the EPIC team.

Cardiac Rehabilitation Departmental Secretary (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 24, 2018
I enjoyed working with management, co-workers and attending staff meetings. Training in different departments was interesting. The hardest part of the job were the days I typed 6 hours. It was exciting to see patients get well and enjoy life. Being able to work out at Fit for Life was a plus.
PHLEBOTOMIST (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 23, 2018
in the lab department there was no use in voicing an opinion. The turnover rate was horrible. The pay was not competitive with other hospitals, The pay doesn't match the amount of work, This place basically wants you to be thankful you're receiving a pay check
Laboratory Assistant/Specimen Processing Lead (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 23, 2018
No communication between departments, laboratory totally forgotten, compensation is a joke, your opinions will never matter even after surveys are taken. Company cares more about making money than treating their employees like they need to be treated.
Specimen Processor (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 15, 2018
Overall I enjoyed working at NGHS. The one major set back was the pay we received as a Specimen Processor. We are responsible for patients lab samples (which in turn equals to their lives) and under very stressful work loads to work accurate and in a timely manner. The pay rate does not reflect the work load and the high responsibility that we were liable for on a day to day basis.
Registered Nurse-ICU (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 13, 2018
The facility, co-workers and unit managers are fantastic. The compensation is great. The education opportunities offered are good. The overall culture of the facility is very negative & depressing among employees.
Patient Care Technician/Unit Assistant(Secretary) (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – August 1, 2018
Working for the hospital gave me more than I could have requested in experience and coworkers. I've worked along side some amazing RNs who guided me and trained me in basic RN logic. One nurse in particular took time to train me how to remove IV and foley catheter from a patient before discharging them. Another RN had gone over basic medication symptoms when being mixed with another IV given medication.
Specimen Processor (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 29, 2018
The work atmosphere is structured and scheduled. Teamwork is highly motivated throughout this work place and strongly recommended. In my opinion, this is the perfect "middle" job for finding something else to move forward with during times of furthering your education. With little to no time for a personal life, however, scheduled vacations were never out of reach.
Paid days off, good commute, average pay for entry level job
Should not be entry level job, high stress, reliable for all mistakes without a strong education background
Medical Biller (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 13, 2018
I learned alot about the back side of ins companies not a bad thing just more information.I enjoyed working with my co workers and gained alot of friends. Most enjoyable part was being able to eat lunch with my co workers.
Radiology Clerk (Current Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 13, 2018
There were a number of things I liked best about that job. I enjoyed the level of open and direct communication. This moved things along quickly and few things were left unsaid. This meant that people had to detach themselves from the topic and not take comments personally or make personal comments. It was always about solving the business problems. Another thing I liked was your ability to learn new things and take on more responsibility. Everyone was in a constant state of growth.
IT Application Specialist (Former Employee) – Gainesville, GA – July 12, 2018
If you are not a local you are treated as such. Their mission is good but they don't stand behind it with how they silo employees. Promotions don't happen unless you are family or a local. They are closed minded when it comes to being innovative.
analyst (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 27, 2018
This is a good place to work. It's fairly busy but not overly so. The people are nice. Things run efficiently. There are at least two cafeterias to choose from. The food is good. Many happy smiling faces. They are continuing to expand and will likely be growing for many years to come. Traffic can be a bit of a problem but only for a while at peak times.
