Pros

Historically Alexian Brothers has built a good reputaion. It is a widely recognised name. It is a non-profit faith based hospital. The profits are plowed back into their mission - which is to serve the poor etc. A very noble cause.

Cons

Plenty of administrative staff (who rarely if ever see a patient). ---While departments providing direct frontline patient care are very short-staffed. I doubt that the Brothers (of Alexian Brothers) realize how out of balance this has become.

Advice to Management

If you are not providing direct patient care - directly to the patient at bedside, then you need to be giving great support to someone who is. Reduce the layers of adminitrative staff while increasing staffing of frontline positions. Consolidate administrative jobs with St. Alexus Medical Center (only 8 miles away from Alexian Brother Medical Center in Elk Grove, IL) This could be a huge cost savings.

    Pros

    Good coworkers who lately are more , and more unhappy and distanced because of work overload which is becoming bigger and bigger, who knows where will end.

    Cons

    Misery pay for hard and compassionate work, they don't appreciate good workers any more. Comes from new corporate who want others to make just money for them, so they can have great bonuses and rest are on minimum pay. They cut PTO hours in half. We get less and less benefits and less and less pay, and more and more patients to take care of.

    Advice to Management

    You need to really start to care more about patients and people who work for you. They need money and benefits to raise their families,

    Pros

    Ability of place acute care experience on your resume before moving on

    Cons

    Please do not believe the positive reviews. Multiple patients are unhappy with the care, thankfully their are other choices if you require surgery. Certain department provide inadequate care because the given work load and staffing problem. The department teamwork in 3E post-surgical is few and far between. The 3E surgical RN's are highly favored over the Techs, therefore the care that the techs provide are not adequate for the patients.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on care and not so much on profit. Its a shame that from past reports that the CEO makes roughly $240K per year with a $40k benefit package and the staff that helps him make that income is slightly about minimum wage. There needs to be a balance.
