Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Columbia, SC – July 13, 2018
When working at Palmetto Health they do not notify you when you are making an error. They hold all errors and then terminate your employment without you having a clue of you performing your job duties incorrectly.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – July 6, 2018
The CEO and president focuses on the mission of the hospital. Many leaders care about staff and will help to provide development. Patients care is always first and it is reintegrated during on boarding. Great organization to work fot
Limited opportunity for some to move up the career ladder. It's who you know, not what or how much you know
Acute Care Coordinator-RN (Current Employee) – Columbia, SC – June 25, 2018
I've held three positions at Palmetto health. The most gratifying was working in the community with the mentally ill population. Although, as the program grew it became very challenging-it was rewarding. The population is one that most people to do want in their neighborhood and they would rather forget. I was very lucky to work with two psychiatrists who had high standards, taught staff and was always available in urgent situations.

There is no future. You never get a raise and there is a large turnover in employees. We payed less than the cost of living in this area. We are treated as if we can be replaced at any time . I love patient care so I love that part of the ob. I would work there until I retire if I got paid enough to retire.

I loved working for Tuomey. It was family oriented until we became part of corporate. My department closed down when I had been there 20 years. I was planning on retiring from there and I thought my loyalty and excellent work history meant something.
Great atmosphere, treat patients like we would want our family members to be treated. Very family oriented the staff always look out for one another. Only con I have there hasn't been any raises in the last 3years.

It was nice sanitize and a healthy place to take your loved ones and enjoy the help and assistance that they were able to provide each family with. I also learned cleanest will help you recover and feel more better
A typical day at work consisted of answering the hospital switchboard and directing calls to the appropriate areas. I always had to be ready and alert because the next call I answered could be a life of death situation. It could be a code blue call.
The environment was conducive for learning at all times.
Management seemed to thrive on causing friction between co-workers
