    I worked at Providence Health & Services part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was a privilege to work at Providence Newberg Medical Center! Its a pretty small hospital, which can be both a pro and a con, but I appreciated how everyone knew each other throughout all the departments. The care given to patients is excellent and hospital staff consistently receive positive feedback from annual patient surveys, I believe it was above 90% every year I was there. PNMC was the first "Baby Friendly" certified hospital in the state of Oregon. In addition, the building is a LEED certified facility with special parking for hybrid cars and charging stations for electric cars.

    Cons

    I didn't like how there were no guaranteed hours for on-call employees, although I did know that when I was hired. They no longer offer extra pay incentive (time and a half) for working on short notice and/or picking up extra shifts, so at times it can be difficult to find coverage or people to come in when it gets busy.

    I have been working at Providence Health & Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At Providence Holy Cross Medical Center in Mission Hills it's like working in a dream. I've worked in Post Partum for almost two years now and I couldn't be more elated. Management is wonderful and they're super flexible with my schedule. It was easy to go from per diem to full time to part time. Every staff member I've met from other CNAs to RNs to Houskeeping to the cook are absolute angels. It's easy to feel at home quick.
    The work load is never too hard, even when I go to other units. Staffing will always try to float you instead of cancel your shift - but it's not uncommon to be flexed off if you want it. Management is always helpful and supportive of my continuing education. The patients are very kind and appreciative - many are Spanish speaking only so keep that in mind.

    Cons

    Having to take annual Patient Safety classes/etc. (and now you can only take these classes at your designated hospital, you can't go to other Providence hospitals).

    Advice to Management

    Everything management is doing exceeds my expectations!

    I worked at Providence Health & Services full-time

    Pros

    Good people with good intentions among the masses

    Cons

    Unfortunately, many core values seem to have eroded over the years as self-absorbed management and administration do not reflect the Mission that the Sisters of Providence had built

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful and visionary.

    Pros

    Good pay rate, decent benefits, paid time off, good team work in lab departments

    Cons

    Too large of a company, losing touch with patients and employees. Upper administration is no longer local, cannot talk to Human Resources or benefit specialists in person.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the employees, not just the bottom line. Use the knowledge base that you have available within your organization instead of contracting out for solution ideas.
