    I have been working at Abrazo Health Care

    Pros

    Great Compa ny to work for. They consistently promote from within and are very forward thinking company in regards new technology and recruitment. There hospitals are one of the best in AZ, short wait times, great staff and very freindly to patients.

    Cons

    Has issues establishing their Corporate name Abrazo here in AZ. Vanguard aquired several currently operating hospitals in the Valley which already had established names. When the were aquired Abrazo added their corp name to each hospital such as Abrazo PV Hospital. Now after two years still the brand hasn't caught on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keeping pushing the brand name to the Valley. Sponsor local events to promote brand to valley....

    I have been working at Abrazo Health Care as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Most of the staff were friendly and welcoming. Everyone was helpful and never bothered when asked for assistance.

    Cons

    Challenging if you aren't familiar with Medical/Legal procedures and responsibilities. You have to be open to learn a lot of rules, information, and proceses very quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider contracted employees as you would interns. If you haven't decided to convert them from contract to full time hire, have the manager have an exit interview. Let this exit interview act as a review of the employee and how they have grown in their field. Then suggest to them what they can work on to better themselves to succeed in their future jobs.

    Pros

    The front line staff had a true sense of team work and effective communication.

    Cons

    Effective communication, honesty and cross-training with upper management was always an on-going concern. Each year, there was constant upper management turnover; employee would become aware of these changes through the "grape vine."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization should strive for new leadership with people who understands business strategy, values people and communicates changes timely.

    Pros

    The coworkers and staff are great- a very talented group of people. I have been in the organization 5 years and had great opportunities to learn and grow professionally and personally.

    Cons

    A previous bad reputation continues to follow us, though many of those things have been changed. Abrazo's future is very bright- there are lots of good things happening here!

    I worked at Abrazo Health Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people recruited but no one is developed or retained.

    Cons

    Turnover among system and facility leadership was 60% in 1 1/2 years. No latitude at the health system to develop into a meaningful structure. No control of capital. Leaders spend the majority of time trying to figure out what happened in order to appear knowledgable for their calls to corporate. No identity as a health system, no planning or engaging in strategic thinking. The most dysfunctional environment of which I have been a part. This is all meant to be descriptive not mean spirited. All of the people I worked with were well intentioned not cut throat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to think why they have a regional office. It offers little to know value. The hospitals do not exist in any meaningful way that indicate a system exists, except for maybe purchasing power for medical supplies.

    I worked at Abrazo Health Care full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most all of the administrators are willing to teach incoming staff. Almost always have needed equipment to do the job. Work environment was pleasant and staff cooperative when approached by someone to review a area where improvement was needed.

    Cons

    Too often there was not the correct matrix of staff to complete the amount of work that needed to be done. When this happens, discontent tends to grow, leading to unhappy employess, and not a desire to be on their best game every day---leads to not as many good outcomes all around--in patient care, in adminitration, all around the facility.
    Too much turnover of employees, unable to maintain a cohesive staff when employees do not feel valued, and look for other places to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If staff is valued by acknowledgement of not only poor performance, but good performence. it makes an individual strive to do their best. If people are aware of WHY there needs to be compliance in certain specific area, there is a better chance of cooperation.

    I have been working at Abrazo Health Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoy the coworkers on my unit. There is a true sense of teamwork and a desire to provide great patient care amongst the core staff.

    Cons

    Staffing problems and lack of some basic necessities to do our jobs make this hospital an incredibly difficult place to work at times. Nursing is a hard job to begin with, and when we lack the tools we need, or the staff we need, to ensure patient safety and satisfaction it is extremely frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit spending the thousands of dollars on outside consultants and programs in order to change this organization from the outside and dedicate the money and time to staffing, maintaining core values, establishing consistent policy, placing patient safety above all else, and to providing and maintaining the basic supplies needed to perform safe and competent patient care. You have some stellar employees here. Help us do our jobs.

    I worked at Abrazo Health Care

    Pros

    Abrazo offered advancement opportunties if you were willing to be pushy and continually pushed toward senior management. Despite the attitude of the market, the rank and file employees of Abrazo are committed to safety and quality care.

    Cons

    Senior Management is flat out inept. They are paralyzed by data and refuse to make decisions, in effect limiting their ability to do they things they need to do to compete in the market. They are too focused on the day to day to realize they must change now for the future.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A change is needed. A true leader that encompasses the balance between strategy and action, between decision making and having alll the data. New leadership is needed.

    There are some really good people who work here - mainly at the staff level.

    -CONSTANT upper management turnover
    -The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing
