    Pros

    Progressive, general striving for excellence, beautiful area to live in, part of wider health system;

    Cons

    Pay not the greatest; they always seem to be in some kind of a financial crisis; few other job options in the immediate area should you move there and the job not work out; with management and salaried employees, expect much overtime work.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the nurses!

    I worked at Queen of the Valley Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent hospital to learn and prefect my skills at. they are very busy and work by the book with no shortcuts. I am proud to have served my last clinical rotation there full time in ten hour shifts. I was able to work with minimal supervision and this helped me rely on my own abilities.

    Cons

    Most technologists were working per-diem and no benefits. I understand that our economy is in recovery and Obama Care is hard on California and (I hope) should be worked out soon.

    Advice to Management

    None

    Pros

    Wonderful medical staff, good pay, benefits. Largest employer in area. Place to be if you are ill.

    HR unhelpful to employees, let older staff go, keeping younger staff during layoff. Some department managers are mean

    Treat older workers with respect they deserve.

    I have been working at Queen of the Valley Medical Center part-time

    Pros

    Excellent pt. to staff ratio 4:1, The benefits are excellent, and the wage more than adequate. The hospital stands behind their employees. I like the 12 hr. shifts. I would much rather work 2-3 days a week than 4-5 days. They supply a good range of education that is free for the employees. and the upkeep/maintenance of the hospital is good.

    Cons

    If someone wanted to live near the hospital, Napa is a wealthy area (generally speaking) and the cost of living is higher than in many other places, I commute. The nurses recently voted to go union.(California Nurses assoc.) It will take a lot before the benefits of belonging to a union outweigh the personal cost. Like all of the hospitals I have worked in you occasionally have to search for specific equipment (on night shift) but over all they have what you need available including a couple of amenities like a bladder scanner on the units. The hospital is a little bit heavy in the administrative staffing, But there is always enough staff to give good pt. care.
