Employee Testimonials

What was it that made you choose PIH Health over other hospitals?

 “I chose to work at PIH Health after I did my rotation at another hospital and PIH Health. Upon observing the nurses at both hospitals, the nurses at PIH Health were much happier, smiled, and did not complain. The nurses at the other hospital appeared to be very unhappy and dissatisfied. It was very clear they were not content.  Also, the staffing at PIH Health was much more desirable than the other hospital. For these reasons I decided to apply at PIH Health and I feel very fortunate and proud to part of this hospital.”

What are some positive experiences with training and professional development?

“The management fully supports staff advancement in education, training, and is willing to accommodate school schedule. Tuition reimbursement as an incentive for the staff that furthers their education proves that PIH Health recognizes staff advancement in education and career. The management also provides necessary training to the specific job assignment until the staff is comfortable with the new assignment.”

Tell us about your career path at PIH Health

“I started as a student intern and then transitioned as a new grad on the medical surgical unit. I was very involved in my department. I was an active member of my unit’s partnership council and after a few years I was my unit’s council chair. I then was given the opportunity to collaborate with the multidisciplinary team to educate new patients regarding their total joint replacements in the joint venture class. I trained other educators and eventually began precepting new hires and new grads on the unit. I then went on to train as a charge nurse, transitioned into the Assistant Clinical Director position on the post-surgical unit, and am now a Clinical Director. So I can tell you first hand, that there is definitely opportunity for growth in this organization. The biggest take away is that you just need to have the passion to want to continue to grow professionally and ensure your team is growing with you.”
