I worked at St. Luke's Episcopal Health System full-time (more than an year)Pros
Used to have an excellent reputation. In regards to management: high senior management turnover. Immediate managers: results may vary.Cons
Managers feel free to make openly racist comments. Politics are also race-based. I was actually asked about race repeatedly by different managers. Management and their favorite stay follows race lines, followed by staff-sycophants. Do not expect that going above and beyond and/or being good as well as hard-working means anything. To be fired apparently is difficult: I guess they need proof that you intentionally killed a patient. However, they will chase you off if they think you might question practices (like parking patients in the hallway before surgery and leaving them there)!!
Benefits are TERRIBLE: expensive but cover little. If you need a medical leave, you are not paid for 30 days before they will even consider giving you partial payment. High deductibles.
The doctors that complain loudly are treated with kid gloves. One even said staff could be replaced with homeless people. Another would say he was going to "tell his dad" (a highly placed surgeon); did I somehow end up back in school? Quality is not rewarded even for surgeons, only the complainers get extra rooms, etc.
I do not recommend this as a place of employment or to allow your friends and families to be patients.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Keep a closer eye on managers: make sure they do not break the law or allow patients to be placed in danger. Also, just because "we've always done it that way", does not make it good practice. Don't reward surgeons based on length of tenure or volume of complaints.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookNo opinion of CEO
