Registered Nurse (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – April 20, 2018
I enjoyed working here, the staff was nice. For a seasonal employee we received a 401K paid by the hospital. This place does get extremely busy. Some resource coordinators are very young and not helpful.

Patient Access Specialist (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – March 1, 2018
I worked at YRMC 3 times! First time full time for 8 years and went back twice part time. Your coworkers become a second family. I had a great boss and supervisor most of the time I was there, especially when I was with the ERBO.
Lead Patient Transporter (Current Employee) – Yuma, AZ – March 1, 2018
It is a good place to work if you are in the medical field. Management is really bad for some departments not all. It has its busy seasons. Not a great place to work if you wanna move up unless you have a college degree or certification
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – February 22, 2018
I worked for YRMC for 5 years and most of them on night shift. What I learned is that it is important to be a team player and that the patient comes first.
The workplace environment is very diverse and was mutually satisfying to all. We could learn many things from the different cultures and appreciate the difference.
The hardest part of the job was the night shift, it would become very hard to stay awake during the 3-4 am time period, and so the increase of drinking pop that had caffeine was necessary to stay awake.
The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the patient improve and return to their own home environment.
I had a great time helping patients get checked in for their surgeries and visits as well for labor and delivery.
Front Desk Receptionist (Current Employee) – Yuma, AZ – February 8, 2018
Volunteering at the hospital was a interesting and fun experience. I enjoyed helping patients with their appointments and accessing the computer for visitors at the labor and delivery. As well I helped patients with wheelchair and take them to get checked up. I also handled answering calls at the front desk. I have great communication skills.
PACS Customer Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – January 2, 2018
Encourages getting a degree. Keeps up to date on laws and training regarding HIPPAA and OSHA etc. Excellent vacation time and sick time. I learned many computer programs and getting around in them. The hardest part of the job was getting laid off. Learning was the most enjoyable part of the job.
Advancement was only given to family members of upper management.
Registered Nurse II (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – December 21, 2017
Unfortunately Yuma Regional Medical Center is the only hospital within several 100 miles so there are no competitors. The organization has also refused to allow the employees to go union to represent their benefits, making all the wages and benefits uncompetitive to the market.
The only hospital within miles
The only hospital within miles and they do not have competitive wages/benefits for employees.
Unit Secretary/Telemetry Technician (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – December 11, 2017
The staff are well trained and work together extremely well. Always willing to lend a hand if they are able. This includes the travelers. The middle management are knowledgeable, understanding and compassionate. The upper management is more concerned about cost than patient care. However, they are concerned about staying current with technology and equipment.
Social Worker (Current Employee) – Yuma, AZ – November 9, 2017
Case management is stressful, yet the hospital culture is focused on reducing stress by providing many activities for employees to be involved in outside of work as well as wellness programs during work. Unfortunately, staffing is always short and sometimes there is not enough flexibility with work schedules, i.e.. able to work 10hour days in the case management department. Staff is supportive of one another and management attempts to hear concerns and address them-as with most organizations, change is slow. Salary and benefits are good, but not based on structure of case management at YRMC.
Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – November 7, 2017
I loved the place but after just having my baby they wanted me to return to work at 4am when I told them ahead of time I would not be able to work that early. All of the staff was very welcoming though. There was always a little bit of drama like any work place.
Registered Nurse (RN) (Current Employee) – Yuma, AZ – October 11, 2017
I have been employed with YRMC on and off for many years. Starting as a Clinical Associate, then surgical technician, and now returning to the O.R. as a Registered Nurse. The current department administration is fantastic. This facility is a regional medical center and offers challenging patient populations and yearly population spikes due to the warm weather during the winter months. The proximity to San Diego beaches is a bonus!
Clean, technologically advanced, ensures we have everything we need to perform any task
Facility is sometimes not competitive due to it being the only hospital for 60+ miles
Analyst (Former Employee) – Yuma, AZ – October 7, 2017
At one time YRMC was a great place to work, however that has changed immensely. They are extremely top heavy and continue to hire upper level positions while cutting from the bottom. Doesn't matter how many hours you work per week and or how much you stress that you need help, they will hire another Director, Admin Director or VP before they hire front line staff. It's all about the bottom dollar and their end of year bonuses. Very sad. After working there for over 15 years I said enough!!! I've seen some cut throat decisions made lately that were appalling and did not want to stay one minute longer. They will cut positions in one area that is continually over worked just so they can create new departments that offer nothing more than fluff. It's sad how low this hospital has become over the years. At one time they really cared about not only patients but also their staff.
Discounts and pay scale.
Over worked, not enough help. Lack of leadership. Every man for himself.
