Pros

Advocate is able to stay ahead of the curve in health care. Advocate is making changes to be a top healthcare provider in the region and in the country. Advocate Healthcare is also striving to be a leading employer. Some programs include; educational opportunities for staff $4000/yr. for professional advancement, a small pension, Heath Rewards program to improve employee health to name a few. Healthcare benefits are ok.

Cons

Advocate is expanding roles of RN's into Care Managers, Unit Managers, VP's, Middle Managers of other managers... Many other allied staff members are under represented in management even with higher levels of education and experience. Managers should have a hands on aspect to their positions with less time spent in back door meetings and more time on the floor. Organizational leaders should represent all aspects of the health care organization. Physicians and RN's are overly represented in meeting and committees in the Advocate Healthcare system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to all of Advocates valued employees to improve outcomes. Advance allied professionals into management level positions to inspire new innovations in health care. Advocate is filled with energetic, dynamic thinking professionals many with Masters and Doctorate level educations that are being underutilized because they are not RN,s or Physicians. A well rounded management team that represents the skills and knowledge and the entire healthcare team would be welcomed.
