Review of St. Joseph Hospital

St. Joseph hospital has always been a great place to work. It is family-oriented, cares about its employees, and genuinely wants its' associates to succeed. A typical day at work is giving patients the very best of care, to the best of our abilities. I learned how to interact with a diverse group of people while working at St. Joseph Hospital as well as how best to react, or not to react, to situations that would test anyone's patience. I love St. Joseph Hospital and will forever be greatful to this organization for giving me my start and providing me with a job when I so desperately needed one.

This is for Syracuse NY

In 30 years of working I've never been treated so bad. The culture has changed from a caring hospital to a business that only cares about making money. Employee turn over is terrible management is clueless. The places that patients don't see are old and run downNever time for lunch or breaks, I was sick one day at work and wanted to go home only to be belittled by my manager when I asked to leave. What does this say for a hospital?It's changed and I would not recommend this as a place to work, while I know there are many good people working taking care of patients. I'll never go there by choiceThere is a reason employee don't speak up with issues too!

A good place to work

I enjoyed working here, I was cut down to PRN work because they were down sizing. The only reason I left was because I was a newer employee and it was going to be awhile before they could get me full time.

I work at a small hospital with a great team of RNs and CNAs.

I look forward to coming to work everyday. I enjoy my job and my co-workers. We are a great team.
