All our units are self-contained with private courtyards, laundry facilities, patient lounges, and semi-private rooms.

Some employees were petty and didn’t know how to own up to their mistakes so they would point the blame to others. Luckily I had a manager who cared about his department and always had our back. Administration was messy and constantly stressed out their employees. The pay was awful.
Overall the culture is bad. Administration always seems to be angry and are not supportive. Poor staffing regardless of how much we would ask for. Staff are not held accountable for laziness or errors. Things seemed to be improving for a short time but then multiple administrators had left within a short amount of time and staff started leaving left and right.Turnover is very high. Terrible place to work.
In the practice or care, most of the nurses and MHWs are hard working. On the management side, they repeatedly made questionable, unethical, or greedy decisions for how to treat their patients and employees. Wouldn't ever work here again, and wouldn't want my loved ones to be treated here.
I rated this place a 3/5 simply because I LOVE the nursing and floor staff which whom I got to work with. Work/life balance is also good in the sense that we don't take any work home nor do we answer any calls once we have clocked out. HOWEVER, sometimes we do have to work weekends to be able to catch up (that is compensated through getting paid OT). There is little to no opportunity for growth within this hospital given that the next position is being the Social Service Director. You can however, request to be moved to the Outpatient program across the street if a position becomes available and it gets approved by your current director. Also, if you are trying to get hours towards your license (LMFT or LCSW), you will only get your 2 hours of group supervision (not paid for as this is done after hours) and it will be very difficult to get individual hours. This hospital has great potential for growth and upper management definitely has some areas they need to work on with being more supportive towards their staff members. Although this is a stressful environment to work in due to having strict deadlines on tasks and the high acuity of the patients, this is also a great learning experience if being a hospital social worker is your long-term goal.
Understaffed and no support from the CNO or CEO. Only a couple of the management actually care and show they care about the patients. I have seen co-workers push patients, drag patients, speak poorly of patients. The nursing supervisor doesn't do anything about it. Over worked and underpaid are understatements. The environment is terrible and just about everyone in the hospital feels that the CEO and CNO need to be fired.
