Great "newer" facility; great menu offered in the cafe; vast majority of employees are dedicated to their care of patients and long term care residents; if you enjoy 4-seasons of weather, with great opportunities for winter activities too, this could be the place for you.
Organization plans to sustain and grow through current recessionary times are not communicated well by executives. It sometimes seems that short term actions are taken to address long term problems.
Advice to Management
Consider the welfare of your non-physician employees when making organization financial decisions because this group consists of the vast majority of employees and are the ones who make the organization work and have the community's "ear".
I have been working at Portage Health part-time (More than 3 years)
The staff are very friendly and easy to get along with. The clients have been absolutely fabulous as well. Any questions or concerns are always addressed as quickly as possible. Scheduling is very flexible. I was able to work the hours I wanted while simultaneously attending school full time and raising a child.
The work provided for some clients is much more intensive for some than others. Considering the degree of difficulty with some clients, it would be prudent to increase pay for aides. They do pay mileage, but only from your first client to each subsequent client. Distance from your home to your first client is not paid, neither is distance from your last client to home, unless those distances are greater than 10 miles, then any distance over 10 miles is paid. Mileage pay is around $0.50/mile, which could be more. Also, no room for advancement unless you obtain a higher degree, in which case you are no longer employable as an aide.
Advice to Management
Management does a very good job. The things I'd like to see changed are beyond the control of management.
