    Challenging and interesting - the best hospital in the region

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

    ProsMany opportunities for nurses to be involved throughout the organization.
    Patients are sent here when their cases are too complex for other hospitals, so there are often very interesting and/or extremely complex cases.
    Ranked in top 50 hospitals in the nation.

    ConsNo such thing as calling in sick without getting "points" against you. 3 points = formal write-up.
    Hospital does not negotiate with nurses's union; therefore, union is powerless.
    All premium pay for night shifts and weekend shifts is being eliminated.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUnderstand that how much you pay nurses reflects how much you value them. Refusing to increase pay while continuing to build and build and build new offices demonstrates a lack of appreciation for nurses.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Best Hospitalin Kansas City to work

    Staff Nurse (Current Employee) Kansas City, MO

    Prosgreat health care benefits, ample opportunity for advancement and growth, nurses input on standards of practice is very important and appreciated,

    Consyou have to play the same beurocratic games at this hospital that you would anywhere else. All over town you play the same game, just in a different place.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open to hiring more nurses to fill open positions. The amazing growth of the hospital needs more nurses to work the floor to prevent burn out. Many nurses are tired and stressed out.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
