Biller (Former Employee) – Anderson – September 18, 2018
This company is all about outsourcing to cut costs. They have lost their focus on being loyal to their employees who have been dedicated and loyal to St Vincent. I have lost all respect for this organization.
Switchboard Operator (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – July 18, 2018
I worked almost in every department at St. Vincent's Hospital. I started in patient transport, then switchboard operator, to a couple of private doctor's offices. I am looking forward to continue my job search here because it's one of the best hospitals in Birmingham.
Radiologic Technologist (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 7, 2018
I enjoyed my time at St. Vincent and learned so much from those I worked with. I felt valued and supported in my role there. The management was good at communication and setting proper expectations for patient care.
Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – May 15, 2018
St vincent provided a lot for f experience , training and knowledge. They are currently in the process of transitioning revenue cycle to R1 and job is not secure. I live 30 miles away and it was becoming harder and harder to make the drive and get in requires hours.
Great benefits, understanding management, good environment, holidays
Transition to R1, only located on the north side, no work from home options
Medical Assistant MA-C (Former Employee) – North Vernon, IN – March 1, 2018
When I started here things were incredible. That was in 2013. As the managers started to leave and new ones where hired in it went incredibly downhill. I only received 67 cents in raises in a 4 year period. Was expected to work 12+ hours with no lunch, break, and no downtime, even in flu season. Once moved from immediate care to family medicine things improved but quickly went down hill as it was a sorority house and I didn’t plan to fit in to it. I was more worried about my patients than their games and that was clearly not their worry. The constant changes from corporate was terrible as we were rural health and did not serve the same client base. Once bought by ascension everything went downhill again. There just was not much good to say ahou working here except the work experience you gain because they were always short staffed.
Patient relationship, charity benefits for patients, providers.
Patient Access Specialist (Former Employee) – Frankfort, IN – February 26, 2018
I enjoyed working in patient access. I worked in the emergency room area on the night shift. It was a fast paced, stressful environment but it was a rewarding job. I enjoyed helping patients and their families. We were like a close family with everyone help each other. Often stressful.
RN Staff Nurse (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 29, 2018
I work in a fast paced environment where staff need to work together to take care of the patients. Flexibility is important as situations can change fairly rapidly. I may begin my day in prep and be pulled to assist another procedure. At the end of the day I may be asked to assist in recovery or again assist in a specialized procedure where not all nurses are trained. Patient post calls are an important part at the end of the day as well as stocking supplies. Working independently is also important when I assist in Bronchoscopy procedures as the staff support dynamics change in that area. Taking call is also required about two times per month. The hospital also ensures we have continuing education via web based training.
trains nurses to speciality procedures, able to volunteer for committees if so desired, has monthly staff meetings to keep up to date on the behind the scenes running of the unit
occasionally need to take Voluntary time off as patient census ebbs and flows, occasionally has less than 30 minute break in a 12 hour shift
St Vincent went from excellent to poor during my years there.
Data Specialist (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – January 26, 2018
I have been allowed almost complete self-direction in my role which I greatly enjoyed. At the end of my time, however, I did not perceive that my values of excellent patient care and accurate, reliable data were shared by leadership.
Athletic Trainer (Current Employee) – Erie, PA – January 16, 2018
Working at St. Vincent is a rewarding and challenging career. The working environment is inviting and upbeat where the day seems to go fast and days are enjoyable. The doctors are all around great people and don't look down on you like your some lower person than they are due to their credentials.
I would without a doubt recommend St. Vincent to anyone as a career choice.
