    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    This is an amazing hospital! If I were needing medical attention I would have no hesitation about coming here or bringing my children here. They put patient care first priority and all aspects of the jobs.

    Cons

    Because patient care must come first, (which includes watching out for the budget to keep costs low for the patient) sometimes an employee may feel they are second. However, I think that comes with the medical field.

    Advice to Management

    More positive or encouraging notes from management to their staff (privately or as a group)

    I worked at Ridgeview Medical Center part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive co workers and appreciated by other departments, they see and how hard the job is and appreciate what we do.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership, not enough staff, inflexible, scheduling challenges and lack of support and appreciation from upper management. This has the potential to be a great department with positive supportive leadership.

    Advice to Management

    This department needs positive skilled leadership , has potential to be a great department.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Ridgeview Medical Center (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Clinic is close to home, short commute. Current position aligns with educational background. Many talented people who genuinely care about patients.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. Lack of advancement opportunities. Deplorable communication at all levels. Management does not support workers and patients.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employee concerns. Do not offer bonuses to management for staying under budget. Adhere to human resources policies for all employees. Make patient care a priority. Hire management staff with health care education and experience.

    I worked at Ridgeview Medical Center as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got paid to do homework
    Good Job for Students

    Cons

    Not alot of communication
    A lot of downtime

    Advice to Management

    Make sure communication is clear and frequent to those "in between" positions. I was a Nursing Student and heard about this position from my Instructor. There was a lot of downtime which was great because I could catch up on my homework. However, I worked there a year and had no direct superviser. Nurses were not very friendly. Job duties were not laid out clearly. I spoke more with the scheduling office than anyone. Several of my co-workers quit due to lack of communication.
