Centra Health Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – 6 November 2017
Very face paced evening, this was a part-time job. Learned lots of different types of people. The management was very kind and understanding of the patients and staff. Very good team work. Hardest part of the job was when someone passed away. The enjoyable part of the job was that most patients appreciated what you done for them.
Medical Transcriptionist III (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – 10 December 2017
Good place to work. I was able to telework in my job. Typical day was 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. 5 days per week and worked 1 weekend per month. Very fair supervisor. Especially appreciated her working out a schedule with me when my mother who was dying was living with me and I was taking care of her. I would definitely work for this company again.
Staff RN-ER (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – 24 November 2017
Top heavy administrative staff with seemingly little regard for the staff. This was a very challenging position in which I was faced with blatant racism and disrespect. This staff position taught me the type of manager that I will not become.

Rehab Aide (Current Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – 8 November 2017
I have been with Centra for the past 6 years and have little to no complaints. Competitive wages and respectful management. Stressful due to the lack of staffing sometimes but everyone steps up and acts as a team to get through it.
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA 24502 – 30 October 2017
Typical day at work is going into patients rooms to wake them up and get blood pressures. Get them ready for breakfast. After breakfast give baths. The management was ok. Hardest part of my job was watching patients take their last breath and tag and bag to take to the morgue. The most enjoyable part of my job was listening to the patients and talking to them. It was so joyful to hear them talk about their childhood up to the present time. Giving hugs when needed.
RN III (Former Employee) – Lynchburg, VA – 30 September 2017
Worked for Centra for 7 years, no opportunity for advancement . Poor pay, the lowest in the region, as a RN working in the hospital, you only get 35 cents raise after your performance evaluation with ( Meets Expectation rating). Most of their RN's are going to Carilion/ Lewis Gale just 45 mins drive away and makes up to $5 more hourly. Upper management need to look into this. Am happy I left this hospital and happier now with my current job
Close to home
Manager favoritism, Bad Pay, lack of shared governance
RN II (Former Employee) – lynchburg va – 24 August 2017
Acute care management has some left-field Drexel online master's degree which was the only thing that qualified them for the position. Played games with staff like highschool. Poorly done and unprofessional. Lowest nurse pay in the Commonwealth and that's a proven fact. Pay is not worth being managed by incompetence.
Recruiter (Current Employee) – Ft. Lauderdale, FL – 23 August 2017
Healthcare staffing is a very competitive and challenging and career. My position at Centra has been a fulfilling and rewarding career opportunity. I have enjoyed my time while working at Centra Healthcare
