HIM Level II - Document Review Clerk (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – September 5, 2018
Although this was a temporary assignment , the staff treated you as a fulltime associate. VCU is a excellent company to work for. Training class was overall great and job was worth the time and I learned alot.
Patient Service Representative (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – July 25, 2018
A typical day for me would include taking message off the voicemail. Print the schedule for the clinic for the next day. Check in patients, collect co-pay and have patient complete new patient paperwork. Schedule additional appointments, answer phone transferring calls to correct location. Enter charges get insurance authorization., pull orders for the next day clinic. What I enjoy the most when working with the patients is seeing them improving with the help of therapy.
Supevisor is flexible when you have to take time off on short notice
Child Care Teacher (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 20, 2018
The best part of my job was being with the kids. The management didn't know how to motivate employees. It seemed like the only time we heard from or saw our supervisors was when we were being told we were doing something wrong. The teachers love the kids and should be supported better in their positions.
Nurse Manager Support Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 10, 2018
This urban hospital provides care for many people in the Richmond Community. I was able to move up the ladder in the company smoothly after learning my current job thoroughly. I found that management is not always the best and the most qualified but those who knew the job were amazing and well rounded.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – June 10, 2018
It's a nice place to work at. I'm a volunteer so I can't give much detail but from what I have noticed it's a nice place to be working at. I have been there for almost 6 months now and it has been really fun and stressful.
Administrative Specialist/Office Manager (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 31, 2018
Very collaborative work environment at all levels of the healthcare system, from Doctor's, to nurses, to support staff, to security officers, to environmental services personnel. We all support each other in every way.

you learn to deal with a lot of diversity. you will learn a lot about the disease process and how to treat them. workplace culture is very diverse and the management makes sure that all cultures are treated fairly.
Seems like a good place to work but accountability standards vary per department
Outpatient Scheduling Center Supervisor (Former Employee) – Richmond, VA – May 9, 2018
This seemed like a really good place work. It was frustrating to be in a management position know that my staff was held to a different standard than other departments. The staff knew this as well which caused a strain on our department moral.

Respiratory Therapist (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 17, 2018
Benefits are great compared to other health systems. Great place to learn. Respiratory Therapists can sit ECMO pump after obtaining enough critical care experience.
Lack of support from leadership in the respiratory care department. Hospital administration/HR does not seem to care about staff that do not have RN or MD after their names. Hourly pay is extremely low, even for experienced staff members.
Management should listen to their employees when they raise concerns rather than trying to get out of having to address issues. Don't let other managers dictate what your employees can do - they report to you for a reason. Don't lie to staff members about clinical ladder pay and ECMO pay in interviews just to get a warm body in the door.
lack of career advancement for allied health team members, lack of leadership from management
Senior Cost Accountant (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – April 3, 2018
Great place to work with wonderful benefits in the downtown Richmond area. Flexible working hours and family oriented. I've learned a great deal since working at VCU Health System and met a lot of wonderful people. Everyone seems to have great work ethics which makes the work environment run very smoothly.
There are ample parking garages/decks that the transportation department will help you find one closest to your building. Very professional environment.
Security Officer (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – March 24, 2018
A typical day at work is very face paced but manageable once it becomes repetitive. We are open 24 hours 7 days a week so its very demanding. Management is fair not much room for advancement. Its very diverse culturally. The hardest part of the job working in a hospital setting is being around so much sickness and death, but it definitely makes you grateful and humble. The most enjoyable part of the job is bring able to meet so many new people with so many stories and being able to assist with them.
Patient Access Representative (Current Employee) – Richmond, VA – March 21, 2018
I personally would not recommend VCU health as a place of employment to others. I absolutely hate that employees have to pay for parking while employed here. VCU health seems to be a very unorganized organization and the pay is terrible.
