    I have been working at Appalachian Regional Healthcare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are okay but if you do not use ARH facilities you will have higher out of pocket.

    Cons

    No increase in salary here. New hires wait 5 years to move to standard pay rate. Management team has not received salary increase in several years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If upper level management expect to retain qualified workers, especially supervisors they need to treat those managers better.

    I worked at Appalachian Regional Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    If you like learning on your own with absolutely no guidance, then you're all set. Personally, I prefer to feel welcomed and at least told what I'm supposed to do in a typical workday on my first day at a new hospital.

    Cons

    Each hospital in the chain is different, but in Hazard, the employees are stuck up and talk behind your back. Compared with what your profession would be compensated at other hospitals, you are VASTLY underpaid. There are too many pharmacists on staff, as well as trying to have a "residency program" and precept students, that it's just a cluster of confusion in the actual pharmacy, and on the floors, the students feel lost, and sometimes the pharmacists are just twiddling their thumbs to look busy. It's a waste of time and education to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Properly pay and train your staff

    Large system with small comapny feel

    I have been working at Appalachian Regional Healthcare

    Pros

    There is a sense of community and comradery at ARH that is rarely seen in systems of similar size.

    Cons

    ARH is a unique system that can appear a bit disorganized. Its hospitals are rural which is a whole new world for someone with an urban or midsize town background. It takes some acclimating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep things organized.

  8.  

    ARH home health cares for their employees and treats them with respect.
