    Misled about job!

    Program Director (Current Employee)

    ProsThe work is very rewarding. Being a part of helping a patient heal a chronic wound is one of the best feelings!

    ConsThe bonus structure is very unfair. Promises are made when hired, but when it comes to payout the rules change. Very disappointed in my overall experience and treatment as an employee. They tell you that you are salaried, but when needing time off PTO must be used. No comp time or credit for hours over 40 worked!

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management is out to further the company at all costs, even at the expense of their employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Fun team, hard working and focused on growth

    Director of Recruitment (Current Employee) Reno, NV

    ProsThe people I work with including the Regional VP's the Directors of Clinical Education and many of the front line staff who are so dedicated to taking care of patients and improving people's quality of life. It's a fun group and that's important when you dedicate so many hours to working for a company.

    ConsI think any company growing as quickly and in as many states as we are has challenges in how to build all the systems and processes to support the team. No company is perfect, but we continue to make investments and learn from our mistakes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvesting in a time to bring the leadership together to meet is important and I appreciate that you are making this investment for us to get together.

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

    Great Place to work for Physicians

    Physician (Current Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsGreat lifestyle balance, good compensation for physicians that want flexibility. Fast practice growth if you're willing to put in the work.

    ConsNeed to be entrepreneurial and focused to make sure your business grows, can't just sit back and not manage your practice

    Company does not honor contracts to physicians.

    Wound Care Physician (Former Employee)

    ProsPromising area of medicine with growing opportunities.

    ConsRecruitment advertisements promise significantly higher pay for their LTC physicians than was actually realistic. Within a few months after signing several new physicians to 3-year contracts with a base salary plus RVU bonuses, Accelecare insisted we sign new contracts which took away all base salary and transitioned us to pure RVU reimbursement. Even though all patients requiring wound care were seen, the income potential they claimed was not feasible within their advertised 40-hour work week due to limitations at the LTC centers.
         Meetings with the CEO, Mike Lester, left a lasting impression that he had no respect for nor was he concerned about the company's physicians. We were simply pawns for him to use for the company's benefit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHonor your contracts and quit falsely advertising the pay potential in the long term care environment. Better yet, stay in the wound care clinic arena where you obviously have more experience.

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

    Great place to grow

    Sales (Current Employee)

    Pros5 years of 25% YOY growth leads to some rapid changes. Infrastructure has had to evolve and grow to meet the new demands of scale. This leads to plenty of opportunity to grow your career if you can demonstrate your value.

    ConsGrowth creates change. Your role will change over time, if you are uncomfortable with change this may be a tough place for you.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep all energy focused on making the hospital and physicians happy and engaged.

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