Evansville. Deaconness or St. Mary's

  1. I will be moving to southern Indiana and would like any info on these two facilities, such as, acuity, pay, benefits, and working atmosphere. I'm an RN with 10 years experience.

    I'm from E'ville, and know both facilities pretty well. My mom has worked at
    Deaconness FOREVER and I was born there, so I am pretty partial to it. I have a couple of non-nursing buds who work at St Mary's. Both facilities are well run, clean, depends on the dept as to nurse/pt ratio, so that you will have to ask during an interview. Good luck on your move!

    I have worked for Deaconess and they treat their employees well. I was pretty happy with the pay and the benefits are good if you live in Evansville. I live about an hour away ao the benefits didn't cover much in my area. I don't know much about St. Mary's but I hear the pay, benefits, etc are pretty similar there. Good luck!

    I recently moved here and interviewed with both. I was offered a position at both facilities and chose St. Mary's Medical Center. I liked their mission, and how much they care about their employees. The pay was comparable at both places, as were the benefits. I don't regret it at all. I work with nurses that work at both places, and they say there are pros and cons at both. I think it just depends on your own personal preference. Good luck to you!
