Nutrition Call Center Associate (Current Employee) – West Reading, PA – November 17, 2018
It is hard to judge how everyone in the field feels about feels about working here because there are so many departments. Personally, I am so lucky to work with a great group of colleagues and supervisor.
Strictly Buisness and no room for patient satisfaction
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – November 8, 2018
I worked for Tower Health/ Reading Hospital for just under 13 years. In the beginning, there was compassion for patients and staff. As the years passed and chief/presidents came and went, the compassion followed along with them out the door. I stayed at my job for more than just a paycheck, but for the passion I had knowing that I was appreciated by my patients. I went to work for the patients and refused to treat them as a number, but rather as loved ones. I am glad I have a medical background because I know that too much has gone unrecognized and fatalities and medical errors are rising due to overworked and unhappy staff, along with insurance companies dictating health care. Now with the hospital growing and taking on more facilities, the staff is treated even more as robots and replaceable. It is time for me to move to a smaller famikyof team members and I hope to further my passion for helping patients.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Phoenixville, PA – October 25, 2018
Nurses are burned out and staffing levels are too low to safely care for patients more often than not in my assigned unit. A few doctors seem to be stuck in time and unwilling to progress to patient centered care. The nurses keep the place going despite all the challenges they face every day from within the hospital.

Patient Transporter (Current Employee) – Reading, PA – August 23, 2018
You have to be ready for anything. Being a people person and knowing how to talk to someone is really important when interacting with the public. If you know how to respond or react to a person in a given situation, then you can be successful in making that person's day a little bit better.
Meeting and Interacting with many different types of people
Unit Support Coordinator (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – August 15, 2018
I liked the position I held at Tower Health. I enjoyed working with my coworkers (most of them). Worked in their "new' State of the Art facility. Pretty good comradery overall. Several opportunities for job change and/or advancement.
nurse (Former Employee) – Coatesville, PA – July 19, 2018
This healthcare system is dysfunctional and appeared unethical. You never know the whole story, but I would not want to work for this system again, nor would I receive healthcare. Sub-par staffing, sub-par management, sub-par equipment.
Licensed Therapist (Current Employee) – West Reading, PA – July 9, 2018
Reading Hospital has been a great place to work. With recent acquisitions and mergers, particularly changes within mental health, job security and questions about future services have gone unanswered. The culture has quickly changed as a result.
salary, benefits, Pto
lack of information about future, concerns about job security
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Coatesville, PA – June 26, 2018
You work 12hr shifts and few days a week but not practical for parents of young kids. Nice group of co-workers and nurses are not afraid to help. Your assignment is always changing within a shift so you need to be flexible and good with changes.
Certified Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Reading, 19608 – June 11, 2018

Emergency Observation Nurse (Current Employee) – Reading, PA – June 1, 2018
This is a great place to be a new nurse. They have excellent nurse educators and ample training. They also have an advancement program that is labor intensive but fair. I also really like the education compensation program.
Working for Tower Health is wonderful! I use most of the skills learned in nursing school. Management is looking out for your best interests as well as keeping in mind organizational goals. Workplace culture is good, everyone is nice.
