    I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and pay is very good.
    Management is very caring and encourages you to be your best.
    Leader in the healthcare system. #LVHNPROUD

    Cons

    Some negativity amongst employees.

    Advice to Management

    Offices are very busy. Try and let Physican offices schedule their own appointments, we are the ones in the office that know the patients. Patients prefer to speak with offices directly.

    I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time

    Pros

    Close to home. Familiar. Some coworkers like family.

    Cons

    Feel like a number and not appreciated. Feel taken advantage of. Fewer and fewer people to do the work and more and more expected from you.

    I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment. Everyone communicates effectively and they give great training for Technical Partners. Pay is fair. Understanding management and helpful resources

    Cons

    12 hour shifts
    No overtime offered and staying later because of admissions, discharges and documentation is frowned upon.
    Technical Partner to patient ratio is 12:1 making it difficult to provide quality care

    Advice to Management

    Offer over time as this is how some people survive. People shouldn't have to pick up a second job while working full time to make ends meet. It drives away colleagues.

    I have been working at Lehigh Valley Hospital and Health Network full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The cornerstone of our culture is the way colleagues support one another and the passion each of us has for what we do and our mission to heal, comfort and care for our patients and families. Additionally, LVHN has personally helped me grow and has provided opportunity through the years. I feel supported by fellow colleagues and by management. The organization is changing - because it has to - due to the disruption in healthcare. What isn’t changing is the dedication and resilience of our colleagues and our leadership. I’m proud to be an employee of LVHN and highly recommend both care and employment.

    Cons

    The benefits outweigh any cons. All organizations have room for improvement. I feel leadership has made progress in improving benefits, salaries and perks,

    Lehigh Valley Hospital is a network that truly cares for its employees! There are open lines of communication from the top down, and everyone has a voice.

    LVHN cares about its colleagues and the community like no other organization I have worked for. The work that they do in the community for the homeless and veterans is nationally recognized. Pay and benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    I can't think of any. So far so good! Excited to continue my career here.

    Continue to listen to your employees. They are your greatest asset!
