    Pros

    Palomar Health operates a beautiful new hospital in west Escondido, plus Pomerado Hospital and other satellite locations around north county.

    Cons

    The health care district served by Palomar Health faces stiff competition from hospitals. This can sometimes mean that if census is down, hours get cut.

    Pros

    The patient is our number one priority in the O.R. and the my coworkers make everyday worth while.

    Cons

    I believe that some of the supervising staff is a little excessive and that some are lacking general O.R. knowledge to be in a supervisor position.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure people are competent with the general areas of their job before hiring them. I believe that the care of the patient is the number one goal so praise those who do it well!! I love working for this company!

    Pros

    Management treats staff fairly. Staff are friendly once they get to know you. Health System striving to be competitive in todays fought health care market.

    Cons

    Few opportunities to advance. There does not seem to be any interest in developing current staff into future leaders.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to see the executives/ decision makers out with the people their decisions impact on a more frequent basis.

  9. The only hospital employer I've ever had

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Escondido, CA

    I have been working at Palomar Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A nearly brand new hospital, so the equipment works and the facility is well maintained. Its a beautiful place to work.

    Cons

    Since moving into the new hospital staff feel more anonomous, almost as if we are part of the equipment. Patient care staff are spread out and isolated with no central nursing stations, so professional comraderie and cohesiveness have suffered.

    Advice to Management

    Staff need to feel that you know your job is to support them in their endeavor to provide excellent patient care. In this arena, management works for staff, not vice-versa. Valued staff that take pride in their work = high patient satisfaction!

    Pros

    The staff are amazing. Organization is innovative and embrace technology.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance or get promotions. More about who you know rather than what you know.

  11. Overall has been a great company to work for as my first health care employer!

    I have been working at Palomar Health full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Before being hired full time, I spent about 18 months as a student volunteer. The staff has always been very helpful and receptive towards me. The training was thorough and educational. Palomar Health has a great atmosphere!

    Cons

    At this point I do not see anything negative about this employer. (Most employers are experiencing challenges in todays economy. Palomar is no different..)
