    Not for profit, faith based Hospital serving downtown Denver

    Staff RN (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsNew building in 12/2014, lots of community feel, generally good teamwork with fair staffing. Upper management communicates well and are visible and accessable.

    ConsCurrently in the process of merging all facilities from Exempla into Sisters of Charity of Leavenworth Hospital System. Lots of changes. St. Joseph's will be moving into a new (nice) building and it will be exciting but as always stressfull. Middle management appears stressed to keep up with the changes. Managers are not keeping staff informed causing a loss of commitment and a rise of poor morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake better efforts to have managers treat staff like humans and not numbers. Acknowledge staff that are weathering the changes and giving their commitment to make things better.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Overall Good Experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Lafayette, CO

    ProsNice environment and the majority of people working there are pleasant to work with and professional. Emphasis on doing what is right for the patient and their families.

    ConsNot a lot of advancement opportunities. An attitude of if you are not an "RN" then you must not have much to bring to the table.

    Rapid Ascension, Positive Overall Experience

    Site Director, Supply Chain Management (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsImproving the quality of patient lives. Educated work associates, high, but sometimes unclear expectations, manage under a myriad of tiered responsibilities, otherwise, a pleasurable and productive environment.

    ConsOverwhelming workloads, Long hours, low tolerance when asking for additional resources, little understanding when unclear expectations are not being met.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe clear about expectations, Be understanding about volume of workloads

    Unpleasant. My coworkers did everything they could to make my job harder and management did not help.

    Certified Pharmacy Technician (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsI loved the challenging atmosphere and it was never boring. The shift went by quickly and I loved the 12 to 8:30 shift.

    ConsAs I said my co workers. I also felt the pharmacists took us for granted

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more proactive in dealing with bullying

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of change, but headed in the right direction.

    Comm/Marketing (Former Employee)
    Wheat Ridge, CO

    ProsThe benefits, compensation and leadership of the organization was great.

    ConsGetting people who had been there for some time to accept and embrace changes that occurred with the new owners and changes in the healthcare industry.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReach out even more - connect even more with your employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Started there as a travel nurse...

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)

    ProsLutheran is a great community hospital. The staff are very friendly, the patients always comment on how great their care is; Computer system is 2 thumbs up

    ConsManagement not so supportive, or approachable

    Advice to Senior ManagementFelt very discouraged / cheated, when you got rid of middle mmgt like they were last weeks' leftovers.

    Weak management, allows bullying among staff. Wants 5 star service yet unwilling to staff for success. Worst job ever.

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsIt seemed ok at first, but this didn't last long.

    ConsUnskilled management. It is clear that the staff means little to the management. Intimidation and bullying rampant. Non medical managers trying to run medical staff. Do not back their staff. Allow toxic environment/behavior. Employees are NOT valued here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWorst management i have ever seen. They don't even try to pretend to respect those that work on their teams. Instead of looking at what they can do to promote teamwork, they lead through putting the responsibility of The Survey's onto their workers, who are stretched to the max already. Will scapegoat their staff and will lie to cover their mistakes.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Poor management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsAmazing on floor staff makes you feel right at home.

    ConsManagement! Its a good old' boys / girls club. Managers and supervisors should learn to lead, and they should lead by example.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAppreciate your good employees. Help the bad ones become better, or let them go. Bad employees don't help when short staffed.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Culture is for managers/directors to be rude and demeaning to employees

    Not Applicable (Former Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsHealthcare benefits are acceptable for the most past.

    ConsManagement ignores how employees are treated by supervisors/directors

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more concerned with broken departments rather than the "unsightly" cracked flagstone in the entrance

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
