    I worked at Alvarado Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    All staff work well together. Being a centrally located department (pulmonary) I had a chance to work in every department. I would definately go back to work there if I was still in the area.

    Cons

    The inter-departmental management was hands off occasionally when there was a need for a hands-on approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation seemed fair, leadership seemed fair with opportunities to lead as well, and work-life balance to me seems to be the individuals job, not the hospitals.

    Pros

    Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The managers were very kind and helpful and fair. Parking was easy.

    Cons

    Unfortunately change of ownership multiple times caused unease in staff members. Work hours were continually cut without informing you at home.

    I worked at Alvarado Hospital

    Pros

    It is a smaller hospital compared to other hospitals in the area and is therefore a good stepping stone for healthcare professionals.

    Cons

    When I was there, the hospital was still doing paper charting. It was a bit inconvenient and it was sometimes difficult to read the writing of other healthcare professionals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management had both good and bad leaders. After being on the floor for awhile you know who will make your day more or less stressful.

    I have been working at Alvarado Hospital

    Pros

    It's a job when they are hard to find.

    Cons

    Too much work for too little pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strive to lead the industry, strive to be the best, strive to stand out from the crowd. Be the hospital of chioce in the area, have the best technology in ALL areas of the hospital, not just a couple.
