    Growing Large- Kinda like the population they take care of

    Account Manager (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsUCHS provides a stable environment as an employee. The offices, hours, and parking lots are nice. Clinical staff do seem to care about patients. Technical staff seems to be a bit overwhelmed.

    ConsLack of leadership shows, from the top brass getting their heads cut off, to the miserable employee engagement survey results.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFrom health care to health is a joke. You want people to get sick, and you want to get paid as much as possible.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Environment, focused on patient care and doing the right thing!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsLeadership, vision and mission. My immediate leadership was very open and engaging and maintained focus on the overarching vision and mission to provide the very best in patient experience and care.

    ConsLarge organization with rapid growth creating some inflexible requirements and guidelines

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep a small, nimble, dynamic organization attitude and approach as you continue to grow.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    RN

    RN (Current Employee)
    Colorado Springs, CO

    ProsThey provide tuition reimbursement for continuing your education.

    ConsManagement seems to be more interested in saving and making money, which does not get passed down to employees, than making sure patient safety is the top priority. They make budget cuts in all the wrong places and leave employees to be overworked, and to work in unsafe situations.

    Advice to Senior Management6-7 patients on the busiest and heaviest floors is not a safe workload for a nurse. 20+ patients for one CNA is not a safe load.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Going downhill fast

    RN II (Current Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    ProsStill some genuine caring staff that haven't given up and work together as a team. I like my direct supervisor.

    ConsPeople are leaving in droves because of the day to day stress of continual change and increases in nurse to patient ratios. The lack of caring exhibited when 5 hospitals merged into one huge company is astounding. They are dismantling their best hospitals piece meal. Pay is uneven across the company for equal jobs. After 10 years I'm finally considering leaving myself.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBack off on some of these changes before there is a sentinel event. Hospitals full of new nurses and clinical staff, overworked and understaffed, are sure to cause harm to our patients. I'd be surprised if there haven't been some already. Nurses want to feel good about the care they are giving. Equalize pay and shift differentials between the hospitals. Do you think we don't communicate with each other?

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Taking health care to it's lowest common denominator

    Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    Prosthe few remaining employees who still try to give great patient care despite the avalanche of garbage they're trying to withstand, co-workers seem for the most part to support each other

    Consevery day something else happens, feeling like you're walking into a minefield every day you go to work, has decimated the morale of the workforce, employees feel like management does not care about them at all, more demands on fewer staff while the number of CEOs seems to multiply.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf you can't figure out what you're doing without running to consultants, can't communicate with staff because you don't know what you're doing, can't staff units to provide quality patient care, then get out of the health care business.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
