OSUWMC has been the best organization I've ever worked for. OSUWMC works hard to promote from within and the management I've worked for has promoted a balanced work/life culture from allowing us to flex time to working from home if no meetings are scheduled.
Business Manager 2 (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – June 11, 2018
I would love to stay at OSU but need to move to IL for personal reasons. I have learned a whole new set of skills and have management experience. Have been promoted several times in my employment here.
My position is fast paced environment and a lot of multitasking which I like because it keeps me busy. I have two days of week for clinic where I see patients and get future test, labs, follow up appointments and surgeries scheduled. Management can be a sore spot because they seem helpful but then problems don't get solved that occur.
need to train there techs better with one trainee not 5 or 6. didn't thank management cared for employees very good. the hardest part of the job was being on call. the most enjoyable part of the job was all the patients I got to meet and help through out my time at OSU
I came in with over 30 years legal experience but had not worked for a medical center before. I learned a lot about the workings of a hospital and the associated issues. Our job was to represent the medical staff - doctors, nurses and others who treated patients when they were sued for malpractice. I maintained the 180-day notice files, I arranged depositions and deposition prep sessions, working closely with multiple attorneys and doctors/assistants. I managed calendars, travel arrangements, payment of invoices for medical experts, performed timekeeping tasks, answered phones, distributed mail. I drafted documents for signature, worked in a document management system WorlDox, prepared documents in PowerPoint and Adobe.
Lots of changes in management, kind of an upheaval.
Unit Clerical Associate, The Ross Heart Hospital (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – May 17, 2018
Issues w management from top down. Poor work culture - retaliation and vindictive culture. No top down communication. Subversive actions against entire departments. No pay increases by market indicators for years. Not able to communicate concerns without fear of retribution. Ongoing, very public lawsuits have cast pall over mgmt that was deemed by vote to be a 'no confidence" to Board. Nothing has changed - staff leaving in droves, and poor replacements with no ethics come in. Young, and stupid.
Read up on pending suits and who has already won. Huge ethical problems at OSU and the hospital system.
Director (Current Employee) – Columbus, OH – May 16, 2018
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has provided me with the platform to help make life-changing differences in people’s lives as the Director of its Strategic Growth and Facility Operations for Ambulatory Services.
I’ve been able to find happiness and purpose in helping each member of our university and medical center team to create a positive patient experience, expand our available services and access to care into the community within Central Ohio, and ensure that our building operations are as efficient and accommodating as possible.
As a leader, I believe each person on a team needs to be held accountable without being micromanaged, but truly need to work hard. I recognize the value in hiring talented people and collaborating with them on projects that will most benefit from their unique skills.
My typical day involves simultaneously spinning the plates of preparing budgets, planning strategically, providing professional development, measuring performance metrics, and overseeing daily operations across our facilities, among other duties. A visitor could see me attending to a parking issue at one building, then later that day directing construction at another building before I head to a meeting to help design high-level growth strategy programs.
My most rewarding accomplishments at Ohio State have been: - Gathering clear metrics to measure our success - Aligning our team and facilities to provide greater access to care and get more patients back to the activities they enjoy - Collaborating with experts from the university and medical center
I learned and achieved more than I ever thought I would with OSU. While working underneath Management that pushed me to go for all I could and learn more than I needed as a daily job function inspired me even more so to learn several departmental functions, as well as leadership and Management/Director one on one reporting.
Medical Scheduler/Secretary (Former Employee) – Columbus, OH – May 15, 2018
loved my job. Worked with great doctors and staff in plastic surgery. Loved working with our patients and helping them with schedules and decisions they talked about Problem was poor manager and treatment of employees
OSU Wexner Medical Center has taught me a lot in the respect that it was my first experience working in the medical field. OSU has its own set of policies and procedures that must be followed. These guidelines are in place for a reason. But once you learn what these procedures are and what they are used for, things go a lot more smoothly. Everyone has a job to do and everyone fits into the puzzle for a reason. You may question it at first, but it makes sense once you learn how it all comes together.
Multiple opportunities to broaden horizons. Just by nature of being a nurse, if you are bored with a certain area, other choices are unlimited. You can choose where you want to work, what speciality, how much you want to make, what hours to work. OSU gives you unlimited choices.
