Catholic Health Services of Long Island Reviews
Rating 4 out of 5 5 reviews
I love working for CHS. It is a very calm environment. I came here in 2014 and I have never regretted my decision to join the team. If you are new in your career, this is great option. I think they should work on diversity. The have quite a few African American nurse managers but only one African American in senior management. The other part I think they need to work on is how they promote employees. I feel the senior leadership stays forever with no real changes but they talk about changing the culture of the hospital and trying to become more innovative. I don't know how they expect to be more innovative but they keep old people who are stuck in their old ways and keep their old ides.
The staffing shortage and lack of an acceptable solution by upper management leaves staff and patients in a precarious position.
I'VE BEEN AN EMPLOYEE WITH CATHOLIC HEALTH SERVICES FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS NOW. I AM A COUNSELOR FOR DEVELOPMENTALLY DISABLED INDIVIDUALS THROUGH MARYHAVEN. THIS IS TRULY A GREAT WORKING ENVIRONMENT AND A VERY REWARDING JOB! CHS IS GREAT TO THEIR EMPLOYEES!
I've been working at St. Francis Hospital for almost a year now, and I can honestly say that the transitioning process was the worst part of it. Every unit within this hospital is like a family, and so they're very cautious to newcomers. I am fortunate to have the opportunity to work in a position where I'm exposed to countless procedures, patients, and coworkers from all different positions. The best part about working for such a big company is the compensated time-off. If you're sick or plan a vacation, you'll be compensated for your time off. For that, I think that CHSLI, overall, takes care of their employees.
Great Long island location. Interesting and challenging work in a large healthcare delivery system. A bit old fashioned.
