Children's Hospital & Medical Center – Why Work For Us?


Our History

Children's Memorial Hospital opened its doors on March 14, 1948. The hospital, located at 42nd and Dewey Ave. in Omaha, cost $850,000 to build and was funded by a community-wide penny drive and contributions made by 30,000 people in Nebraska and western Iowa. With the polio epidemic looming, Children's would go on to play a significant role in the treatment of youngsters throughout the area.

In 1981, Children's Hospital moved west to a new location at the corner of 83rd and Dodge Streets.
A new, state-of-the-art hospital built especially for children opened September 30, 2000, at 8200 Dodge St. just one block north of Children's former home. The 292,030 square-foot facility features a total of nine floors, including three medical/surgical floors, each with 24 single-occupancy rooms. The hospital also has an 18-bed pediatric intensive care unit and a 40-bed newborn intensive care unit.

On January 8, 2009, Children's introduced a new logo and a new name. Children's Hospital & Medical Center represents the hospital's growth into a regional pediatric and specialty health care center.

Indoor and outdoor malls, quaint shopping centers and unique boutiques cater to the shopaholic in all of us. If you're in the mood for some bling, one word-Borsheim's, America's largest independent jewelry store, owned by Billionaire Warren Buffett. Another Buffett gem, Nebraska Furniture Mart, you won"t believe the size of this place. Don't worry the Mart delivers and so does Omaha.

Whether you're watching, playing, or arm-chair quarterbacking, Omaha is one sports crazy city. Professional baseball and arena football attract fans from all over. In 2008 Omaha hosted Olympic swimming, March Madness, NCAA Championships and PGA golf. If you're the athlete there are plenty of hockey rinks, tennis courts, hiking and biking trails, swimming, boating and loads of fishing. Is fishing a sport? Walleye think it is. (Omaha humor)

    I have been working at Children's Hospital & Medical Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees generally have a very good attitude and seem to want to be there. Management keep employees up to date on continuing education.

    Cons

    All of the Child Care Partners on the Med Surg floors have to float to other units frequently without a pay incentive. If you are hired as a float pool CCP you get paid more, but you do not get paid more if you float as a CCP from a Med Surg unit.

    Advice to Management

    Stop making Child Care Partners float if they are hired onto a specific floor and not float pool, it really harms work productivity when you aren't comfortable with the unit you floated to. If you insist on continuing to float the CCPs, a pay incentive should be offered.
