The environment provide an opportunity for career growth
Floor Register Nurse (Former Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – August 5, 2019
The hospital is very clean and takes patients; care very seriously. However, they have a very significant nursing shortage thereby making the workload extremely heavy on the nurses and thereby compromising patients' care,
Great day working at Ottumwa Regional Health Center
Accounts Payable Clerk (Current Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – April 16, 2019
Coming into work and knowing what is expected of me daily is nice. I know what needs to be done to do my job well and am left alone to get my work done. Management is very good at leaving us to do our work and not micro manage us. I enjoy all of the people I work with from regular staff to the CEO. Its a good atmosphere to work in.
ARNP- Emergency Department (Former Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – January 16, 2019
Very busy ED 24/7. Great physicians, nurses and other support staff. Typical patient acuity for NP's range from 2-5 with 2 being the highest acuity. Very collaborative group to work with. Learned more about referral to specialties for various types of patient diagnoses. Hardest part of the job was the physical environment needed to be larger to accommodate patient numbers and acuity. Enjoyed the team aspect for providing best patient care.
Working with great physicians, staff and other professionals.
ICU RN (Former Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – October 24, 2018
I loved my co-workers and nursing supervisor. They were the best I've had the pleasure to work with but the company is for profit and it's abundantly clear in the way they treat employees. The benefits and compensation are awful. They don't even match 401K! We always worked short with mandatory overtime.
Inpatient Occupational Therapist (Former Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – March 1, 2018
I worked at Ottumwa regional health center as my first job after graduating. I really enjoyed working with all of my co-workers. I learned a lot about OT in an inpatient setting and now feel more confident in my abilities as an OT.
PHLEBOTOMIST (Current Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – February 19, 2018
Ok place to start but not a good place to work at long term. Always lacking supplies, no communication, always short on staff, minimal training. Set up for failure, they dont properly train new employees before setting them off on their own
Staff Nurse, Intensive Care Unit (Current Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – June 19, 2017
I work with an exceptional team. The people at this organization will keep you coming back day in and day out. The hospital is more specialized than most of the hospitals in the surrounding area, giving it a big hospital feel in a small town.
Enjoyable place to work with understanding and easy to work with management
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Current Employee) – Behavioral Health Unit – May 9, 2017
A typical work day is full of laughter and learning experiences. All of the staff is helpful to each other and enjoy making work a fun place to be. Management is always willing to work with you on scheduling and days off as needed. The hardest part of the job is finding extra hours to work as everyone is always willing to pitch in to fill in the gaps. The best part of the job is the fulfillment I feel at the end of each day, knowing that I truly helped my patients.
RRT (Former Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – March 24, 2017
Plenty of bad attitudes in this place, no support from co-workers. Management could care less unless you are one of the pets. Double check your paystubs as there is always an error. Physicians are mediocre at best. Not a good relationship between community and hospital. Keep looking.
Great employee hardworking and never appreciated for the hard work.
Food Service Worker (Current Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – February 12, 2017
No life balance Management unhelpful. Kicthen director hard to talk to rude and mischievous. Low pay for all the work you are required to conduct. Hard on good hard working employees. Only good thing is the benefits and enjoyment of other co works and presents of patients. Shift is stated to be 1st shift from 5am -130pm turns out you are working 6to 730pm shift no work and life balance.
Lots of good people, except in Admin. Too many "cooks" on day shift. No loyalty to employees.
Former employee (Former Employee) – Ottumwa, IA – February 2, 2017
This place has some wonderful employees that try too give their best. That is never good enough for upper mgmt. Mgmt in meetings ALL day, never able to help on the floor. Used to be a pretty nice hospital, but RCHP has allowed poor management to make this place hard to feel confident and appreciated as an employee.
