    I worked at SCL Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    SCL builds on a solid foundation of patient-focused values and safe care. As the corporation grows, so does the shift to business-focused and safe care. If you're good with that, you may well have a fine experience with SCL.

    Cons

    The years when C-Suite leadership interacted with staff, listened to staff, and saw staff as equally committed to the patient experience are gone. Leadership focuses on fixing everything but themselves. Such a disheartening change from the earlier years of SCL Health.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at SCL Health full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The patients kept me coming back for more.

    Cons

    Management/directors threatened our jobs on a daily basis. It was so toxic. If they weren’t attacking me, it was my coworkers. It broke my heart to see people getting picked on like that. Having that kind of stress makes us not want to come into work at all.

  5. "Overall good place to work"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Certified Nurse Assistant 

    I worked at SCL Health part-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, paid time off, ability to work flexible (1/2 shifts)

    Cons

    Like all hospitals, it depends on the unit you work on. Some units have a really great culture, others fall in to blaming other people for things. As a CNA, I experienced a lot of improper delegation from nurses which was frustrating.

  6. "Poor Laboratory Management"

    3.0
    Former Employee - Medical Technologist in Denver, CO

    I worked at SCL Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits, pay, locations, and coworkers are great.

    Cons

    Very poor microbiology management, and the workplace environment was extremely toxic. HR also did nothing to mitigate issues between management and staff, regularly siding with management before details of issues were known. Retaliation was almost guaranteed if staff spoke up about any lab matters.

    I have been working at SCL Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Senior leadership truly cares about employees, great foundation/mission.

    Cons

    Lots of “spinning of the wheels”, great intentions with little follow through. Your manager can make the absolute difference for you as each department is fairly isolated

    I have been working at SCL Health part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My colleagues are mission oriented and I never hear a bad word uttered about any patients. Everyone I work with really cares about what they do.

    Cons

    SCL Health has not, in my opinion, taken care of its employees well through this pandemic. I've been made to feel guilty about having to use time off to care for my children (during a pandemic, when there was no school or child care available and we are supposed to be social distancing!) There is a focus on productivity to the point of creating toxic stress for people who are doing good work.
