Patient Business Services - Contractor (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – June 3, 2018
I really enjoyed my time at Stamford Hospital. The company strives to provide a healthy lifestyle and work environment for its employees. It also offered a lot of fringe benefits such as discounts at local delis andon site massages for its employees.
An ideal facility which encourages autonomy, development, setting no boundaries between management and workers! all decision are based on the decisions of all; allowing all levels to vocalize their need and ambitions!
employee parking 10 minutes away by shuttle but very much work the ride lol
Customer service (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – May 7, 2018
A typical day at work I need to Support staff to Patient registration, Customer service, orientation to patients within the hospital , answer phone calls. Working as a support for patient registration helped me to treat people from different cultures. A very quiet and very organized work environment. The hardest part of this work was to make the patients understand that we had to follow a work procedure established by the Hospital. The most enjoyable part was seeing the patients satisfied by the service provided
A typical Day at Stamford Hospital is very, very, very fast paced. You will learn a lot being at this hospital. My manager was a tyrant. workplace culture was okay. The most enjoyable part is the staff and the great patient you get to meet everyday while working.
Management make changes w/o the employees knowledge how will affect the job what we do. No communication. Upper management is very difficult to establish a relation with employees. It is their way only, I am not talking about direct supervisors or CEO.
Very organized and structured the physically close quarters permit team work which ensures productivity...Attention to detail as required as efficient programming of equipment is essential for immediate response.
I enjoy working at Stamford Hospital. Staff gets along great, we work together as a team The reason I am looking elsewhere isn't to necessarily leave this company. I would love to stay with this company as I am treated well, but the hours I am working no longer fits my current circumstances. It's a great place to work.

No job is perfect, no co-worker is perfect, no manger is either but here at the hospital you can make a huge impact on those patients in need. You go to work and work hard but you leave feeling good. Being a member of the Stamford community my whole life, I was proud to help assist my fellow neighbor. You meet a very diverse group of people and you serve them all equally. You see all the different thing people can go through in the world and you learn to be able to relate to them all.... Maybe a little too deep and maybe not enough detail about the day to day hustle and bustle but that is my review of working at the Stamford Hospital. I enjoyed my time there and I enjoyed serving the people.
We are truly, truly helping others in need
Despite being in a position to help others in need, some choose not too
Worked as a RN here for several years. Management is sub-par. Career advancement is not a priority, and opportunities for advancement are routinely withheld to benefit the needs of the particular unit you were hired for. Pay is becoming comparable to NY, but they are not unionized. I can count on two hands the number of lunch breaks I was able to take in the last 5 years that I worked there. They are barely holding on to Magnet status and the Planetree culture is a joke.
Provide emergency medical care to an average of 30 critically ill patients per shift within a 20+ bed Emergency Department. Ensure the provision of quality emergency medical care to patients requiring emergency treatment in accordance with physician orders, hospital policy, and standard nursing practice. Perform patient assessment and nursing diagnosis.
ER Technician (Former Employee) – Stamford, CT – January 2, 2018
The management here is some of the worst Ive ever seen. And I was in the military! Part of the problem is that management has no checks or balances. Nobody higher up seems to care. How else could you explain losing 80% of your staff to transfers, resignations and terminations and all the while upper management does nothing. To say that there is favoritism among managers would be a huge understatement. When I was there I saw one tech written up when he came in late 12 times while another was written up only after being late 25 times. And you can be written up for anything. Even being late 1 minute! The whole time I was there I felt like I was swimming with sharks. So if you are looking for experience, get what you need and get out! If you are looking for a career, don't bother.
