Does anyone work at these hospitals? I've been applying for open positions, and I'm just curious if they are enjoyable places to work?

Are you from the Youngstown/Warren area? I would work there over ValleyCare Health System (formerly Forum) in a heartbeat. With the entire transition of ValleyCare, there are bound to be some troubles underneath the table.

Also, St. E's is where the most serious and severe cases go usually. So, if you are looking to work in the ER or ICU, I'd definitely choose them. They are both part of the same system, so same benefits and rules probably apply. St. Joe's hospital has more of a small town feel, while St. E's hospital gets the main traumas in town and has more of an inner city hospital feel.

I've never worked at either, but I did work as an aide at Forum. So, I cant actually say if St. E/St. Joe's are nice places to work, but I'd pick either of them over ValleyCare.

My father works at the St.E's building on the Kindred Floors, he LOOOOVES it there! He said he has great a great staff to work with and everyone in the building is friendly. His staff is also very friendly with our entire family.

I cannot speak from professional experience, but my brother was in both (I guess they are related hospitals). I found the nurses at St. E.s to be angry, hostile, crabby, and generaly unintrested in patient care. The nurses at St. J. on the otherhand were generaly up-beat, positive, with a strong focus on patient outcomes. I found the medical departments of both hospitals to have both good and bad, but for my money I'd want to work at St. J.s. I know my observations are only for one patient, but the difference was striking.
