Departments Providing Frontline Patient Care Are Very Short-Staffed.... and getting worse.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for more than 8 years

ProsHistorically 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.

ConsPlenty 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 Senior ManagementIf 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Good coworkers who lately are more , and more unhappy and distanced because… 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… Advice to Senior Management: You need to really start to care more about patients and people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

Please considered other hospitals for your surgical needs

PCT (Current Employee)
Elk Grove Village, IL

I have been working at Alexian Brothers Medical Center full-time for less than a year


Pros: Ability of place acute care experience on your resume before… Cons: Please do not believe the positive reviews. Multiple patients are unhappy with the care, thankfully their are other choices if you require surgery. … Advice to Senior 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… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
