DCH Healthcare?

  1. Hi,
    I'm going to be relocating to Tuscaloosa upon graduation this May. I was wondering if anybody had any information on DCH Healthcare. What is the reputation of the hospital and what benefits do they offer. Any information would help me!!! Thank you!

    You would make more money with better benefits to drive to B'ham.

    Do you have any idea what area/floor you plan to work in? Do you have shift preferences? I have not worked for DCH personally, but know many who do/have signed contracts. Base pay for RN is comparable to Birmingham, but shift diff. at DCH is BETTER than the good hospitals up the interstate. I have heard that DCH does more for their employees, (you do not pay to park, they have a new cafeteria), mainly little things, but sometimes it's the little things that make the difference, ya know.

    I'm finishing up nursing school in Tuscaloosa, and have lived here since 2001, I don't know how far you are moving from, but if you have any questions about town, feel free to ask.

    Congrats! Welcome to T-Town!
