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 a 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.

    I worked at Abrazo Health Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the nurses and ancillary staff are well educated, well trained, and warm, friendly people. They are in the minority, however. Several nurses continue working there just to reach retirement and to be fully vested. I hated to see them crying in the lounge They finally opened the kitchen at night so night staff could have a meal. Hopefully, Tenet can create a sensible, caring, and rewarding environment.

    Cons

    Being short staffed was a danger to the doctors, nurses, and most of all, the patients. Patients fell on a regular basis, incurring new or further injuries. Nurses were not given the opportunity to learn about new equipment in a timely manner, wasting funds by letting new equipment sit in a corner and not providing optimal care for patients. There was a great deal of "playing favorites" between mid management and nursing staff. At the time, the best way to get a good review was to walk into your manager's office with cookies and coffee and tell her how wonderful she was. Gossip ran rampant, and many innocent people were hurt. Cliques ran several units, and if you didn't "belong" life there was miserable. One new manager came into work, closed the door to her office, and we never saw her again!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hopefully, Tenet will start by realizing the staff is made up of PEOPLE. Staff deserves a pat on the back, a "thank you", a real raise that allows staff to live within the standard of living, and basic human compassion. Even now, unqualified people are being paid several thousand dollars more per year as managers, while the people who know how to do the job, and are doing it well, are being told,"Sorry, you've reached the maximum salary". A ceiling on salaries is ridiculous if management wants to retain intelligent, competent staff! Keep buying those other hospitals, just remember you need people to work in them! Look at the expressions on the faces of your staff at the end of a shift. If you're not seeing exhaustion, frustration, and disappointment, someone turned off the lights!
