Our Caregivers

The patient experience is not just about the quality of the clinical care we provide or the comfort and cleanliness of our facilities. Patient experience is about the relationship between our care givers and our patients. Our health care team is made up of more than 1,500 people who are experts in their fields. In every clinical area, you will find highly skilled, specially trained individuals who have chosen United Health Services as their preferred place to work. We have very high expectations of each member of our staff, and it is these same high standards that make us a desirable employer for dedicated health care professionals.

Our health care team includes:

  • registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and unit technicians;
  • clinical staff members who are responsible for such specialized services as taking X-rays, drawing blood, running lab tests, counseling those in need, and helping patients recover through rehabilitation;
  • staff members who work behind the scenes to provide nutritious meals, ensure a safe and clean environment, keep our technology up to date, maintain patient accounts, produce educational programs, maintain a safe environment, and provide other support.
  • In addition, more than 400 physicians practice at United Health Services represent 25 medical specialties. All have gone through an intensive credentialing process in order to practice here, and many serve on committees created specifically to oversee the care provided. Internal and external physician experts also continuously work with other doctors and hospital staff to employ the best medical practices in the treatment of our patients.

At United Health Services, Our Employees Are Our Most Valuable Resource

United Health Services is the largest employer in this area, and we also strive to be the employer of choice in our region, so it is important to measure employee opinions about how they like working at United Health Services. Results from the latest survey whose results we have, conducted in 2007, were quite positive. United Health Services employees report a high degree of job satisfaction. Overall, survey performance far exceeded national norms. This high level of employee satisfaction has translated into a turnover rate far below state and national levels. We are waiting to receive the results from the recently completed 2010 survey.
