What Our Employees Say About Working at Firelands
Wondering what it's really like to find a career in Sandusky, Ohio by working at Firelands Regional Medical Center or Firelands Physician Group? Read what some of our employees had to say:
- "I am new to Firelands after working in a large health system for about 30 years. One of the first things that impressed me about Firelands is that everyone I met said, ‘you’re really going to like working here’ and I have found that to be true. Everyone is very welcoming and employees are very engaged when you pass them in the hallway, always making eye contact and saying hi.
The depth and breadth of services provided by Firelands as an independent, community hospital is impressive and I have seen that employees are very passionate about providing excellent care to our patients. I’m proud to be a member of the Firelands team and fully appreciate 'Big enough to care for you, small enough to care about you.'" - Pharmacy Department
- "I met one of Firelands' employees through a friend. He was telling me about his career here and how they were looking for therapists. He gave me Steve’s phone number and told me to get a hold of Steve to talk to him about a career opportunity. Three days later I received a phone call from Steve telling me more particulars about the position and if it was anything that I would still be interested in. Later that week, I was able to have an interview with Firelands and within two weeks I accepted a job offer.
The aspect that brought me to Firelands was that everyone that I talked to within those two weeks was very helpful and friendly. I talked to three members of the team that I would be working with and getting to know them along the way so when I started I didn’t feel like I didn’t know anyone. I had other interviews and job offers from other agencies in the area but none of them were as personal as Firelands. It didn’t seem like I was just a number. It felt like I was going to be a valued member of a team. Since starting, I have been welcomed by my team who has all been very helpful in teaching me different aspects of my job." - Behavioral Health Department
- "I was a stay at home mom for nine years and decided to go back to school for phlebotomy because I had a two-year associate degree for medical secretary from Terra Community College. I just wanted to try something different. I was placed at Firelands for my clinicals. I was highly encouraged to apply for the open position for a phlebotomist in the laboratory. I accepted the position and it gave me a lot of experience.
I am happy with my job here because I'm very busy. I love to stay busy! We recently went to 10 or 12 hour shifts. This is great for my family and gives me an extra day off during the week. We also have new phlebotomy carts which help with patient identification and safety. They make our job much easier. I've worked here for almost nine years and plan on staying for some time to come." - Laboratory Department
- "When I began looking for a job as a nurse, I applied at two different places. I was offered a position at both, surprisingly since I was also 8 ½ months pregnant. I was torn between which one I should take, since both seemed like pretty good places to work, but admittedly, one paid a little bit more an hour. Strongly leaning towards the one that paid a bit more, I scheduled an employee pre-screening. The day I was scheduled to get it done, I went into labor. I called from my hospital bed, and told the recruiter about my situation, and that I was going to have reschedule my screening. I was met with a lack of enthusiasm, and the person seemed almost “put out” by my circumstance. After hanging up, my next call was to the Firelands’ recruiter. I told them I would be happy to take the job, but under my circumstances it might be around 9 weeks before I could start. The first words were “Congratulations” and followed by a concern for what I was going through at the moment, and assurances that I would be more than welcome after I was ready.
I think I might have been a very different nurse if I had “grown up” in any other environment. From the beginning, the people I work with have placed a priority on the connection with every person they encounter. While this is a business, from day one I have felt cared for and appreciated, more like a family. Anyone can get a job that will pay you, but when we have to spend so much of our lives in one place, why not do it with people who matter to you, and who you matter to." - Quality & Patient Satisfaction Department
