  • I worked in the ICU department(s) in the hospital. Newberg is a great little hospital. 44 beds with a whopping 4 bed ICU that usually has one legit ICU patient and 3 fillers to keep it staffed. Judged on it's own merits, it'd be 5 star for everything but the cafeteria food (looks like we're all on cardiac diet!). They even have a quiet staff room with a massage chair. The problem is with the partnership between Prov. Oregon and Cross Country. You'll be expected to float between any/all Prov. hospitals in OR without an orientation shift. In my case, that means I'm oriented into a rural general ICU and had to float to St. Vincent and Prov. Portland CICUs. And start the shift with a full load, not knowing the people, layout, phone numbers, doctors, etc. Also, it took their centralized IT 3 extra days after I was scheduled to start before I was given EPIC access. And then, the week before I was due to leave, it randomly expired necessitating several calls to the department manager at midnight to get it back. So yeah. I loved the unit and the people I worked with, but the hassles and the sub-standard pay weren't worth it. Oh yeah, for some reason they pay you about $200 a week less than at the city hospitals and wouldn't budge when I tried to negotiate an extension. I pretty much broke even for the assignment. 02/08/2016
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Deveraux Glen. Housing was located in city of Portland. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4. Nice apartments. I think this is where Cross Country sticks pretty much all their staff in the Portland area. The commute to Newberg was a pain, but it's right next to St. Vincent if you take an assignment there. The hot tub nearest my apt was closed about 1/4 of the time for maintenance because it's outdoor and floods if it rains too hard (this is Portland, mind you). Really nice when it worked, though.
