Pros

attractive public areas and outside grounds. medical surgical nursing unit surgery suite, emergency room, radiology and administrative areas are new or renovated . Good parking, Community wants a good hospital. Community is supportive of hospital. Great schools and athletics. If you are a doctor or outside consultant you make a buddle of money and bonuses.

Cons

IT technology is lacking, micro managment by senior leadership. New doctor's are recruited without thought or concern to upgrade staff skills to support new doctors. continuing education is non exsistant. CEO brags how great things are but he does not live in city. He has no involvement in city. CEO only lives here mid monday through mid day friday. Much of the hospital needs renovation. CFO road blocks improvements. Administration does not allow you to improve the area. Housing is difficult to find. Rent is VERY expensive. House prices are above average market. Violence in community is high.

Advice to Management

Hospital is managed by CHC. The corporation needs to replace the ENTIRE ADMINISTRATIVE group.

    I worked at Artesia General Hospital full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pro: Recent hospital renovations resulted in comfortable, inviting, public and patient care areas with a modern appearance. The public and patient care areas were very clean, floors shined! Great Mexican food locally. Close to Carlsbad Caverns and quirky Roswell for a fun time. Go Aliens!!

    Cons

    Con: Areas not seen by the public were not renovated and looked neglected. Food Service, Purchasing and especially the Facilities departments are in need of major renovation. The hospital is not accredited by JCAHO or AOA. The Medicare audit when I was there, resulted in a number of deficiencies, many in Food Service, others areas with fewer line items. They state gave them less than 30 days to make corrections which they made and passed. The general population is extremely conservative. The town has built up around an oil refinery so the area doesn't smell that great. Rent are high as locals have bought up homes, renting to law enforcement personnel attending the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center who receive a high allotment for living expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend that hospital executives not place personal orders for supplies and have them shipped to the hospital, especially ammunition as it needs to be stored in a safe and secure location. Hospital executives should not lecture managers on political views during department meetings. Recommend that executives not tell managers to be careful who they vote for or what action they might have to take if a certain political faction were to be reelected. It's also rather insulting for an executive to tell you how great the state you came from was until the political tide shifted against their beliefs. There are certain things you don't talk about at work and politics is a big one.
