Dreadful.

Employee of Saint Helena Hospital (Current Employee)
Saint Helena, CA

I have been working at Saint Helena Hospital part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe drive up to the hospital is lovely.

ConsI never have worked with such a large group of whiny, entitled, non-performing individuals until I came to work here. The administration is a complete joke. The nursing staff (with rare exception) comes from Pacific Union College (Adventist) it shows. If you aren't Adventist, you don't have a chance.. Below average skills with an under-motivated staff = deer-in-the-headlights "Stepford" mentality. The Doctor/Nurse hook-up rate is scandalous and not well hidden.. No one feels accomplished. Lots and lots of "yes men" afraid to lose their jobs.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet educations that mean something. Hospitals have too much management (such as yours) and run by undereducated RN's are bound to fail. You need business leadership, not cliques of middle-aged busy-bodies running around going to meetings. Maybe you could talk about this at the next "forum."Replacing Administration would be a good start.

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

Poor support, employees not valued, low diversity.

I worked at Saint Helena Hospital

ProsBeautiful location, but that is about all. Don't waste your time.

ConsPoor benefits, lack of communication, oppressive leadership. If you are not Adventist, you don't have a chance. Pay is much lower than competitors, employees are not expected to have a personal life and work-life balance is poor.

Campus has been under construction for years and employee parking situation is very bad. Employees must park far from the facility and wait for a ride which might take 30 minutes, but employees don't get paid until they arrive at the facility. The same situation applies to getting back to your car in the evening. Doctors and staff are all very unhappy due to lack of resources and sense of accomplishment.

Parts of facility have been shut down to improper building, and code violations. Some employees are forced to work in a builing 100+ years old that is not earthquake safe. Campus is difficult to navigate for patients and staff.

Human Resources forgets to remove jobs long after they have been filled and turn over is VERY high.

Leadership is untruthful and uses deceptive tactics with everyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe honest and embody your mission. Give employees the resources they need to do their jobs. Don't make people feel guilty for not praying at meetings and meals. Don't pay your friends huge salaries and bonuses, and cut the salaries of people who actually care for patients.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
