The medical and executive administration at St. Francis was a family, and sincere culture. Well managed, entire population of staff happy to work there. New administration came in from New Britian and brought there own staff, much disappointment in the culture. Previous medical director and sister was most professional and this hospital was one of the best hospitals to work for. Not any more unless culture of administration has changed.

Working at the hospital was an incredible learning experience for me. I filed charts and dealt with patients of every kind. I acquired strong skills of organization and leadership, and the work environment was extremely productive and efficient. Having done extensive research for the type of work I would be doing, the difficulty aspect of the job was small, I deeply enjoyed working there and I would recommend this job to friends or others.

I had gotten an internship through a program in my High School. It was fun to be out there and help the nurses or patients and feel like you were actually making a difference or making the day a little easier for the busy nurses

This place is a JOKE, the head tech thinks she's above it all. A bunch of followers who treat patients like numbers and not as individuals. The Rad staff gossips a lot with a bunch of females that are unprofessional with mood swings.
Stay away from Saint Francis Hospital there is nothing Saint about the staff.
Management sucks, gossip clicks, not friendly at all

I really enjoy working at SFMC I have been blessed to work with a well rounded drama free team, we all share the same goal of 100 % patient care, Its a place that excites your hunger to learn more. I would recomend it to anyone who wants to pursue a health career
Management in business office absolutely terrible, including director, your not given proper training nor the proper tools to succeed. Culture in office is discriminatory. I would NEVER recommend working in the business office! Horrible atmosphere to work in! Dissappointment 100%.

I stop working at Saint Francis Hospital because I wanted to RETIRE. After almost a year of being away I'm ready again for the challenge. Always enjoy working at the hospital...enjoy sharing the vision.
MEDICAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Hartford, CT – January 19, 2018
Started in the medical clinic and learned a lot. Had a great experience with resident doctors and rotated in different departments. Co-workers were nice but a lot left and went to other practices. The hardest part of the job was definitely not being able to leave on a certain days on time. Which made going to school definitely harder. I liked the hands-on and enjoyed it very much. I also enjoyed a lot seeing my patients getting well.
Nice co-workers, great place to start out.
Long hours on certain days and only a 30 minute lunch break.
Working 40hrs/week, a 30 min/day lunch break is rare. Pay rate is low compared to others surrounding places. Supervisors and managers feel entitled and don't have a friendly environment. Great experience with fast paced work flow, ER, OR, trauma experience, but wears on you.

Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center is a great place to work and to be taken care of medically. I enjoy working for the hospital themselves. It all depends on what department/career field you are in
A typical work day at St. Francis Hospital involved the follow-up of claim status via website or phone. In addition, to resolving denial of claims. I had the ability to train new employees, work both work compensation claims and commercial.
