  • I worked in the OR department(s) in the hospital. The OR was an amazing unit a lot of team work and help. It’s a teaching hospital so lots of residents. You do have to pay for Parking. 04/10/2021
  • Housing was approximately 3 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Unknown . Housing was located in city of Galveston . On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. Everything was what the landlord showed and explained to me it would be
  • I worked in the Surgery department(s) in the hospital. This is a money position, if you need the money check it out otherwise check out somewhere else. On the plus side Houston is close. 09/25/2015
  • Housing was approximately 5 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was Campeche Cove Living. Housing was located in city of Galveston. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 1. Stay away from Campeche Cove Living, the hassle isn't worth it. CCL took my resident account down before I could I pay my last months rent, lost my paperwork, wouldn't answer the phone, & turned me in to a collections agency. don't go to Campeche Cove Living.
  • I worked in the M/S Float department(s) in the hospital. Great hospital especially for first time travelers. Hospital staff very used to travelers I spoke with a lot of nurses who said they started off as agency and never left or just came back. Nurse to patient ratio is very reasonable most of the time. The only thing about the ratio was on some floors the charge would have 5 patients and the other nurse would have 7. Doctors were very friendly and helpful but there where too many teams and residents. There would be times when you would speak to 3-4 different interns and residents for a patient on the same team in one day. Travelers are hired through an agency that hires for the hospital's float pool, prn staff, and sitters so they are very easy to get in touch with and friendly. Housing was through my company in a condo on the west side of the island. Plenty of things to do and shop off the island. Beaches are ok better in the Florida area. 08/04/2015
  • Housing was approximately 9 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was I don't remember. Housing was located in city of Galveston. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 4.
  • I worked in the L department(s) in the hospital. Small enough community to get around easy, island with good beaches, cruise lines right in town for anytime off (cheap too!). Hospital hard to get to know layout, too many residents, awesome schedule and staffing office. Parking a little tricky, so negotiate agency to pay(40.00/mo). Food expensive and not that tasty. Great places to order from that deliver though. Houston close by if you need a lot of shopping/excitement. Staff very friendly and helpful to travellers, facility a little old and in need of updating, but O.K. to work with. Would definitly work there again. 03/29/2008
  • Housing was approximately 20 mile(s) from the hospital. The name of the housing complex was found my own. Housing was located in city of Galveston on west end of beach. On a scale from 1 to 5, I would rate it a 5. I was familiar with the area, so I chose the stipend and found my own housing as I knew in the winter you could get winter Texan rates, and got a 3bdrm 2bath with w/d, hot tub and garage for 825.00/month. Trickier in other months as it is resort area. Housing offered by agency would have been on the seawall. A lot of housing incl apts are dog friendly. Good fishing and good weather.
