    I worked at Froedtert Health


    Excellent focus on patient care, sound fiscal practices, respectable pay/benefits, appear to value their employees


    competition/growing pains, (at the time) change in management was rather shaky, fierce competition from other major systems compel them to cut corners.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on what you do best - patient care, the rest will follow. Trust in your skilled help to do their jobs, and give them the tools and the freedom to do it right!
