I have worked full time for PH for about 18 years. Sometimes things are good, but the last 3 years morale is down, it is so bad that I am looking for another job. They have been trying to achieve Magnet status, but bc nurses are leaving in droves that travelers are used everywhere. I am very concerned about the future.
Not great. Looking for another job.

Palmetto Health is a great hospital to work for but some things could use an overhaul. For instance, initial interviews are conducted over the phone with a recruiter. If you apply for several positions available you must have a phone interview for each one, even if you already had an interview via phone. Not very personable. Also, prescription drug plan forces employees to use Palmetto Health pharmacies for monthly medications. This mandate forces employees to leave their preferred pharmacy where the pharmacists know their clients then forces employees to use a pharmacist and interns that do not know the medical history which could lead to severe consequences. If employee desires to use another pharmacy to fill monthly medications they must pay additional costs per each medication.

The hospital is steadily growing and offers good job security, but there is still not much room for advancement in many departments once you're employed.
