Security Officer (Former Employee) – Chelsea, MI – November 25, 2017
Chelsea Hospital is a good place to work at. Most all people are professional and very nice, even upper management/administration are all great people.
Problem is: The Security Sergeant/Supervisor is a loud mouth with a hot temper. He is totally unfit to manage which is probably the reason he was released from his past job. This is a person who knows nothing about the hospital he works in, refuses to be of any guidance to his staff and pretty much just sits in his office all day instead of doing anything! I guess if you can get away with getting paid for doing nothing than why not?
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.

RN (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – October 5, 2017
it's a great place to work. the focus is on the patient, yet work-life balance is important to the leaders there. that's one of my favorite things - the leadership model has always been transformational, even before that was 'popular'
plenty of parking, nice campus, nice people, great doctors
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.
Patient Service Representative (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI 48106 – August 7, 2017
Good learning basis for working in a hospital. I has medical experience in working in a physician's office, but no prior hospital experience. There is a lot to learn. There are many opportunities to work in other sections of the hospital.
Building Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, Michigan – August 2, 2017
I have been at SJMH since 1984. I have worked in 3 departments as an aspect of perspective of how it works in healthcare. The last 20 years I have been in Maintenance. The role I have is important even though I don't have direct patient access in this current position. The atmosphere is upbeat and caring with staff. I enjoy my position because everyday is different because the uninspected can and does happen. The most challenging of my day may be serval departments needing my services at the same time. I would prioritize from emergency first to non emergency. Management is comfortable and trust my decision making concerning the facility and my duties.
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.
Patient Services Assistant II (Former Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – April 5, 2017
I left because the atmosphere of the department was to young. and was not offering any more money, but wanted to add more job descriptions and the management was not understanding why staff was so angry
This was my first time exposed to a marketing position and to be the brand ambassador to a major company. St Joseph is a well respected brand int the Brazos Valley area and I enjoyed my time interning with them.
