MAA.II case manager. special population (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – May 24, 2018
I have alwayz been a compassionate person. Love my patients. They loved me. Everyone is out for them selves. No team work. When you get written up for a trash can, you know they want to get rid of you. You learn what you can then leave. Pay is bad, compared to other clinics. $20 per hour is what. Medical assistant should be starting.
Medical Receptionist (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – January 17, 2018
As a newbie to Colorado I appreciate getting the honor to work at PCHS. It is a fun and fast pace working environment. Of course every job has its downs but the experience and the opportunity to grow here are endless. Unfortunately, my stay was short due family issues but if I could I would have continued working here for years. The front desk manager was one of the sweetest and understanding person anyone could ask for.
Physician Assistant-Certified (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – December 28, 2016
This institution lures you with promises of a supportive and caring environment but its actions prove otherwise. There is no support from the physicians for advanced practice providers. The EMR system is daunting and there limited education. The patients see multiple providers even when their provider is available. Strongly recommend against working here.
Physician Assistant (Current Employee) – Pueblo Colorado – January 8, 2015
expectations are high and support is minimal. uses next Gen EMR. Patient visits are high as is staff and provider turn over. multiple programs and grants for which documentation must be completed. visits are 10 per half day with no administration time for providers. EMR confounds the paperwork issue with redundant files and duplications of work. workflow is inconsistent and middle management is in flux
Providing care to an underserved population
poor insurance coverage and work flow, poor training
Physician (Current Employee) – Pueblo, CO – October 27, 2014
I work here part time. I like that it keeps me well rounded and up to date on many different aspects of family medicine. I see a wide variety of patients and complaints. I have my own MA. It is nice to serve a population that is in dire need of care but, occasionally the combination of the complexity of cases and the sheer patient load can be daunting. Still, the staff and administration are supportive and provide a challenging and rewarding work experience.
flexible hours, support staff, healthcare offers, loan repayment, see a wide variety of patients
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – July 20, 2014
A typical day at work consisted of being on the phone triaging patients' symptoms and scheduling them accordingly. Hardest part of the job was having a large call volume and no enough available appointments available.
Management is absolutely terrible! Be warned- do not get involved, you will regret it.
Employee (Current Employee) – Pueblo, CO – February 20, 2014
This organization is one of the most disorganized and unprofessional places I have ever seen. Most of what they do is simply to look good on paper and for when they get inspected, which is not nearly enough.
Now that Obamacare is in effect and the patients have a choice of where to be seen and not trapped having to go to them, they are starting to leave. I don't blame them one bit. I would too.
Do yourself a favor and don't get involved! I had heard that it used to be a good place, but that was before the new CEO took over. He is running the place into the ground.
Management is absolutely TERRIBLE!!!! Do the bare minimum and just to look good.
Mgmt (Former Employee) – Pueblo, CO – January 18, 2014
I used to work for PCHC and wish I had never left. They have the utmost respect for employees and patients, and patient care is their number 1 priority. The management and employees are great to work with and the medical staff is the best medical staff I have ever worked with.
They have the highest integrity of any company I have ever been employed with, which makes it very annoying to see an ex-employee bash PCHC on here just because they are disgruntled. Anyone who bashes them like that are either knowingly lying or could use PCHC's excellent Mental Health services.
Highest of quality care, great people, high integrity
Doctor (Former Employee) – Pueblo, Co – March 26, 2013
Beware!! This organization is very corrupt and unprofessional. Management and board work together to legally cover each other and hide unethical and illegal behavior from the community at large. Was a provider there for many years and saw directly on multiple levels the biased and unethical activities. Nepotism, mismanagement, negligence of patient care, and compromised quality are rampant. The staff members either ignore or don't recognize the behavior and everyone is afraid to say anything to anyone in the higher ranks for fear of being fired. In the many years I was there full time, our department never had a staff meeting initiated by the director. The only organizational templates generated were those implemented through requirements for FQHC, or grants and not to increase either quality or efficiency of patient care. It is a complete shame that this is the only healthcare option for so many Puebloans. We deserve better.
don't have to work hard if you don't want to, can do what you want

I enjoy a busy enviroment. Whether i'm working the office, clinic, or as a tech in billing and coding. I always put my proffession before my personal life. So if i'mever asked to stay later or come in on my day off, i'm always available. I get along with eveveryone, even if they don't like me. Again, proffession comes first.

Professional and caring compassionate place of employment
Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – 300 Colorado Ave Pueblo Colorado – August 29, 2012
A Typical day at PCHC- very rewarding I learned the value of being a valuable team player that follows procedures with precision and accuracy. Management- Compassionate, caring, professional and family oriented, they care about the staff. The hardest part of the job was having to part ways. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the patients and the staff.
working for pchc you were respected as a professional well you got to care for people
