    I have been working at Valley Medical Center

    Pros

    Great patient population, organized, great facility, highly skilled and excellent practitioners.

    Cons

    Although thankfully improving, company culture can be a challenge. Critical and negative people seem to pretty much have free rein to bring down their colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ive noticed that people that are persistently unkind to their colleagues bring their negativity to patients, who we are responsible to protect. Its a bigger issue.

    My short stay at Valley Med

    I worked at Valley Medical Center

    Pros

    I felt that the atmosphere was mainly professional and it was a very clean hospital. I was there before computer charting but the flowsheets were simple.

    Cons

    There was chaos at the beginning and end of shift, common to every hospital, but worse here. It was hard to get assigned and I felt the assignments were too far stretched out

    I have been working at Valley Medical Center

    Pros

    They are very patient focused. Though budget is always a concern if you are publicly funded, they make way more emphasis on good patient care and prevention. Best group of employees. High long term retention. Appreciative to employees and staff with several recognition programs and high praise. People always say hi in the halls and always help lost patients or willing to go a step further. I have worked in another huge Co. And it is not even a close 2nd.

    Cons

    Hard to get people you refer for jobs to get called back. Sometimes makes me not want to tell people to apply.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try interacting everyday on a personal level. Visit employees, staff, patients make it really known you care to make a difference.

    I have been working at Valley Medical Center as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility in hours and supportive staff environment. Coordination of care among providers is well instilled at the Psychiatry & Counseling clinic. Focus on providing consistent and compassionate care to patients among all staff. PSRs are well trained and detail oriented which supports the back end consistently and efficiently.

    Cons

    The building facility at the Psychiatry and Counseling center is in need of major renovations, ie HVAC, sound proofing and better functionality of space. There seems to be a lack of funding and/or low prioritizing these improvements would make to employees and patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention when the same problem consistently arises and address it with a long term solution, not a cheap quick fix.
