My typical day at work required being on the floors with healthcare professionals and providing them guidance on how to navigate a new system and help them do their job, which is providing patients with optimal care.

Unpredictable portion of the day is the most interesting. Work days depend on donor interaction. Team involvement is very important and essential within the Foundation. Fundraising event involvement is enjoyable.
Pros
lunches and Christmas gatherings and activities

It all depends on what you do, I was a volunteer for a little while so I didn't get to witness the whole employee outcome. I did however have an amazing staff assisting my work and even took suggestions when I had a few in mind.
Pros
Great Staff, Great Hours, Flexible
Cons
Wish it was longer

The UOHI is an amazing place to work. They do incredible work there and everybody from the housekeepers to the CEO are fantastic. Being apart of that team feels great, and getting to connect with patients is the best part.

I have worked here the past 6 years and have found UOHI to be a great place for an RN to work. Funding is provided differently to specialty hospitals and with that we are able to have better equipment and better nurse to patient ratios.

UOHI is one of the best hospital in the world. I work with a pioneer cardiac surgeon, who is a clinician and basic researcher as well. I have learned a lot from him and other researchers, nurses and technical staff.
