I am curious to hear from other nurses on what hospitals have great images and possibly what hospitals need to a reputation overhaul! Thanks... Read More

    I work at the IHS hospital in Sacaton and love it; the nurses and doctors are great (for the most part). I started there straight out of nursing school and everyone was really helpful to me as a new grad.

    Sacaton???
    It's been a while since I've been there. Do you live close by?

    any thoughts on casa grande? lol
    I had clinicals @ Casa Grande Regional. Total chaos, unhappy nurses.

    I've heard good things about Scottsdale and St. Joe's, as well as Mesa General.....Casa Grande has a bad local reputation - I've never worked there but have heard enough horror stories that I never would.
    I was a pt at Mesa General while I was on a travel contract. I was in a lot of pain and had unusual s/s. The ER doc accused me of being a "drug addict" and of drug seeking. The ER nurse was downright hateful. I was charged $500. for a drug screen (neg, of course) that was done without my consent.

    I was later correctly diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, at another hospital.
    When I called the hospital to complain, Mesa General blamed it on the ER nurse being a traveler! They were very embarrassed when I told them that I am a traveler as well, and I have never treated a pt the way I was treated.

    I was 800 miles from home, all alone, and very sick. I really would have appreciated being treated like a human being at Mesa General, but I was not.

    I am due for deployment to Phoenix, Arizona (Maryvale Hospital) January 30 next year. I am a Filipino nurse. Could anyone tell me anything about this hospital? Thanks.

    Haven't heard great things about Maryvale ...... actually all the things I hear are pretty scary. But I guess it depends on which unit. Do a search though, I think people have mentioned Maryvale here on the boards.

    I'm in Florence, so about a half hour away. Where are you at?

    Does anyone know anything about pediatrics at Banner Thunderbird? I'm in the online RN refresher program through MCC, and I need to find a place to do my preceptorship clinical next semester. Thanks.

    LOL! I live in Tucson, but I used to live in Florence (many, many years ago). I suspected that you might live either there or in Coolidge if you know Sacaton.
    Did you go to school at CAC?

    I don't think Thunderbird even has a pediatrics unit. I could be wrong though. I have done some clinicals there in the past and I never noticed a peds dept there.

    I've been only in "Renal care group" in Chandler
    And I like it.
    Sadly, Renal Care Group was bought by FMC and doesn't exist anymore.

    I will be starting at Banner Baywood Heart in January. After things I've read I hope I'm not making a mistake. Any feedback??

    Don't know what their Heart Hospital division is like, but I can concur with a previous poster that Banner Baywood is in pretty bad shape. Their turnover is crazy, they lost a bunch when the Gilbert hospital opened and are anticipating another mass exodus when the new hospital in E. Mesa on Southern/Crismon? (forget the exact location and name) opens this Spring.

    I've done all of my clinicals at Banner T-bird and really love it. They do have a peds unit, but I haven't been to that yet, we do our peds rotation at Hacienda. Almost all of the people I've met at BTB have been really great, but again it depends on what floor you work on etc.
