REGISTERED NURSE (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – September 13, 2018
I love working for St Joes in Ann Arbor. The facility is beautiful, senior nursing management is inspiring. Tuition reimbursement is lower than I would like. Benefits are not as good as I would like. Despite 13 years of experience, being certified, belonging to a nursing organization and chairing my unit based council and sitting on 3 other leadership councils I am having a tough time advancing my career. I'm looking outside of the organization at this point.
Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Ypsilanti, MI – September 4, 2018
I was hired as a social worker, but would "talked to" when trying to help patients access community resources. After a few months I went to HR regarding my supervisor and within 2 days I was let go. You couldn't pay me to go back.
Manager (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – August 27, 2018
Love the mission-driven compelling work that I do! So thankful for an inspiring leader who helps me to get resources needed, removes barriers and encourages me. Supports continued education - the tuition reimbursement benefits is so much better than any of my previous hospital employers! Since joining SJMHS I am so happy. My career has taken off, I love the work I do and the people that I work with and know that we are making the difference in the lives of patients and the community.

1st Year Student Radiographer (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – August 23, 2018
Being a first year student not knowing what to do and not wanted to screw anything up, i was really stressed out because of how much i beat myself up. I am thankful that the techs were patient with me as i tried to learn as much as i could in the one year i was working there. the manager was efficient and would jump into the department and help when needed. the radiologists are also patient with students which is a plus.
Location next to my school, Techs know how to teach, dedicated OR techs
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Chelsea, MI – August 16, 2018
A job I looked forward to going to. I worked with an incredible group of dedicated and caring Nurses. Every day focus was "The Patient and family" What we could do to help and make them as comfortable as possible Team Leaders that would work along side you and listen to new ideas. I like staying busy so I never liked to stand around. I would go back help make beds, stock, assist in any way I could to help the patient. I left only because I moved out of State to be near my daughter
Leave of Absence Coordinator (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – July 16, 2018
Great place to work. The people there are great but management is not the best. A lot of favoritism within the department. Need more advancement opportunities and need to hire a more professional and experienced department supervisor.
Office Manager & Medical Biller (Former Employee) – Bloomfield Hills, MI – December 20, 2017
Recruited and managed four physicians and twelve staff members Managed full cycle medical billing for the practice Handled payroll, bookkeeping, and inventory of office and medical supplies (immunizations, injections) Credentialed all physicians with insurance companies
Very fast paced med-surg. floor.I learned who I could trust to work along side me to meet the daily care needs of patients.I worked very hard to meet the care needs of patient so when I left at end of my shift I know I did my best. Hardest part was that not all my patients got the same attention as others because care needs. Best part of the job that I made a difference in someone's life
I was able to get along with the people I worked with
Home Care division-overworked, no respect, poor management
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Undisclosed – November 6, 2017
I left my job as a field staff nurse with this company after several years, due to a change in leadership, ownership and protocol for handling patient care. There is NO work/life balance. Field staff are sent large distances and productivity requirements are set with no regard or concession for travel time or visit acuity. Management is unresponsive and when they do respond to emails and calls, there is a complete lack of support or willingness to listen to concerns. Patients do not receive adequate care, visit frequency is underutilized even following hospitalization and exacerbation, due to both the company protocol that each patient is allowed a very low number of skilled visits, and also due to very short staffing, with the recent mass exodus of employees. Pay is consistent with the market, however, if one considers the number of hours required to be worked in a day to meet productivity, in a salaried model for field nurses, pay is highly inadequate. There is a major communication breakdown between office and field staff, causing visits to be missed, important lab work and treatments to be missed, and then when these issues are caught, field staff is sent out on a moment's notice to see patients who are already irate with the substandard handling of their case. I would not recommend this company to prospective employees or to patients.
Hostile and incompetent supervisor. Numerous patient safety issues .
Perfusionist (Former Employee) – Cardiac surgery – November 6, 2017
Incompetent and hostile supervisor. Management does not care. Nepotism and cliques. Power held by few individuals who will make your work life miserable. You are working at an institution that does not value you as an employee. If you are not part of the clique, then you have no place to go. Cardiac surgery department is the worst place to work. The work environment is very hostile and unfair. Be careful about bringing patient safety issues to light as you may experience retaliation and extreme hostility. Better look for a job elsewhere.
Poor management. Hostile coworkers and supervisors. Lots of patient safety issues.

Director, HRIS (Former Employee) – Orange, CA – October 2, 2017
St. Joseph's offered a wide variety of challenges and opportunity. I enjoyed working with the progressive technology there and the many interesting projects I was able to lead. I ultimately ended up leaving as I was recruited for a better opportunity.
INTAKE ASSESSMENT LVN (Current Employee) – Anaheim, CA 92805 – August 1, 2017
The workload is always hard but we have a team that works together to make sure that all patient needs are met and patient/ and family are satisfied. As an intake assessment LVN, we receive at least 30 new referrals per day and we spend 8 hours on the phone communicating with hospital liaisons, MD offices and Skilled Nursing facilities to help coordinate care. We process referrals at a timely and accurate manner to meet patient's needs. We value teamwork at our department which makes the job less stressful for us.
