Nurse (Former Employee) – Plymouth, IN – January 31, 2018
There is no structure. Management is worthless and unavailable. They don't care about their patients or their staff. They hire only new RNs so that the poor souls no nothing different and then try to make them believe that the horrible things that they do are "normal."
Non-management employee (Current Employee) – South Bend, IN – December 29, 2017
Culture is very top-down. Suggestions for improvement from non-management level people is not encouraged or accepted. If you like to keep your opinions to yourself and just do what you're told then this is the place for you.
Registered Nurse (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – August 25, 2017
Faith based care is real, and it is what has kept me there for so long. The culture is changing though. The newer nurses think the nurses station is where they work like it is home base, they run in the room and do a task and run back out to the desk to be with their friends. Nurses are hired to care for patients. Patients are generally in their beds in the rooms. This might be happening at other hospitals too, could be a generational thing. But stronger management would help to keep nurses at the bedside caring for the patients as they are being paid to do.
We are not given break time to enjoy the beautiful grounds.
Security Supervisor/Officer (Former Employee) – Nicholasville, KY – June 30, 2017
Was the best company until Ky one Health took over and made wrong financial decisions that resulted in letting the entire Security Dept in all Kentucky One Health sites being laid off in October of 2016. That's why I'm looking for a job now because I need funds to help pay my bills.
anonymous (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – June 9, 2017
It is a large organization with many different managers some of whom are excellent, and others not so great. I have had three totally awesome managers/supervisors, and three not so great. The organization has implemented "just culture" philosophy. Overall, the organization values their employees and their diversity. It is a faith-based organization which I really appreciate. The cafeteria food was great when I started, but now it is terrible most of the time. The wellness initiatives sound good, but don't actually do anything to promote employee wellness. The building and campus is nice, though they are always short staffing EVS and the kitchen. In general, the organization stays pretty up to date on technology relative to other hospitals. Overall, the organization is a great place to work. I would stay there if I had a better opportunity for advancement. The lack of opportunity is particular to my area of expertise; there are lots of advancement opportunities for those with a clinical background.
Oncology Research RN/ Clinical Research Associate (Current Employee) – Mishawaka, IN – August 27, 2016
Grew working here. Management is ok. Coworkers are nice to work with. Generally not bad, but middle management are often under stress to produce results and sometimes don't have all the necessary tools to do so.
I loved working for Saint Joseph Hospital. I learned so much there and had fun doing it. Our management team was absolutely stellar, kind and appreciative of the hard work we put in. The culture of Saint Joseph is one of kindness and laughter. I looked forward to work every single day and sometimes would even hang around after work just to spend some more time with my wonderful co-workers. I have no complaints about working here at all.
stellar management, great people, easy workflow, wonderful doctors and nurses
