    I have been working at Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare

    Pros

    Great coworkers and a beautiful new building. My manager created a great atmosphere to work in. Good benefits and decent pay.

    Cons

    The pay doesn't cover your extra job duties that will be put on you. Advancement is either if someone quits or dies but mostly they just eliminate that position and spread the wealth. No training for future growth.

    A hospital that could be awarded a "Glass Menagerie" status if there were such an award

    I have been working at Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful building, Planetree theme is good, some long term employees in staff positions have heart, fast paced environment that is changing, and the Elmhurst community and patients

    Cons

    Top down model, integrity issues of senior leaders, finance drives all decisions, lack of a visible leader that represents the collective "nursing voice" at Elmhurst. Favoritism is rampant. Stifeling culture- Guilting, and fear should not be used as a motivator. This culture is established at the top, but trickles down to the bedside. Many actions of top leaders are for "show," and are interpreted as insincere. There is absolutely no work life balance, and requests for vacations are often rejected. Highest stress level ever encountered. High patient to staff ratios for RN's and CNA's. The glamorous facade that was desiged and created is starting to show holes....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good people are leaving. Resurvey your nurses and listen. Do not tolerate unprideful behavior from any level. Just because someone makes money for the organization or is favored by physicians should not be a free ticket to allow bad behavior. Don't be blissfully blind.

     Glass Door: Peter Daniels is listed as CEO and is no longer an employee of Elmhurst. He is one of many that left abruptly.

    I worked at Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare part-time

    Pros

    New Building, impressive operating suites, decent cafeteria and indoor access to Center for Health. There are a few decent coworkers that make it worthwhile to come.

    Cons

    Leadership is nonexistent and favoritism of certain staff members by supervisors rampant. At least 5 staff people and both supervisors should be fired based on bullying behavior to coworkers and unprofessionalism. One supervisor hides in their office all day and does nothing, and both will abandon ship when times get tough. Lots of catty, childish behavior, including staff and supervisors playing around and goofing off within earshot of patients and playing on smartphones. Witnessed stereotyping of patients and discrimination of student because of a disability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's obvious management is there for the paycheck. Try to step up and be an adult, for once. Stop playing favorites, and trying to be best friends and do your job.

    I worked at Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits for full time employes the nature of 24/7 work tends to build a team attitude that is only seen in a few places (this is a good thing), the building is beautiful and state of the art (for the most part)

    Cons

    In my department the pay was a bit to low to continue to justify the commute and schedule. Where as many support departments in other hospitals have rotating weekends, my department did not and was stuck with a rather poor schedule until someone moved up or moved on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider rotating weekends

    I have been working at Elmhurst Memorial Healthcare

    Pros

    wonderful co workers, newer facility, close to home

    Cons

    way too many middle managers, upper management out of touch with the employees who work at the bedside, compensation is low compared to other hospitals in the area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the people who have been working with the patients for years! they are what makes this place tick, not the fancy new hospital with all the bells and whistles. the people who work in patient care make this a terrific place to be. management is completely out of touch.

    Pros

    Management cares about employees and good training is provided for coders. Coders have productivity standards to meet which are attainable.

    Cons

    Coders don't have much opportunnity for advancement. Company is in the middle of a merger with Edward hospital so job security is an issue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create roles for coders to move into and get promotions.

    Easy job no real pressure deadlines can pass and nobody seems to really care. If your ok with doing just the minium you'll be ok. Also full interent privileges to help with the boredom.

    Cons

    Bad management, too much politics, no ability to move up.
