I have been working at Catholic Health Initiatives full-time for more than a year

ProsLot's of sharp people and upper management is all about people working to succeed. If you work hard, you will be recognized and grow quickly in the company.

Great employees and culture

Project Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Catholic Health Initiatives as a contractor for more than a year

ProsGreat culture, work-life balance. Able to work remotely. EPMO is committed to streamlining with a robust training and education environment for PMs and evolve to remain relevant and flexible with the roll-out of huge projects.

ConsThe environment can feel somewhat unstable due to ongoing facility acquisitions, the changing healthcare environment, restructuring of departments and so many resources and management that are contractors coming and going.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo retain talent that you have already invested in and recruit a higher level of resources increase salaries or offer other compensation for lower than industry standard salaries.

Still a great place to work

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Catholic Health Initiatives full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWorking in a faith based organization reminds me why people like me are in healthcare: to heal the whole person. I enjoy the reminders of why we work here through artwork, reflections before meetings, and adopting language that is non-violent.

ConsDeadline pressures for ICD-10 and cost pressures from reduced reimbursement brought by the Affordable Care Act are placing downward pressure on all healthcare companies to be more LEAN. Like other large IDN's CHI is cutting clinical staff, medical staff, IT, and support staff in response to this loss of revenue. Every aspect of what we do is under scrutiny to reduce cost.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to communicate the challenges across all operating units and how each part of the organization is responding to the call for reduced costs. Help people understand that Medical Staff, Nursing, Clinical Support, and IT are all being asked to bring cost savings to the table.
