Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great staff. Previous CEO built a dynamic corporation

Cons

New CEO is weak. He is into PR but isn't a leader. Lots of promises to everyone but does not follow through. Last CEO not much on PR but built the system into the size it is and was an excellent leader.

Advice to Management

Need to stop worrying about their job and do what is best for the system. Their goal is to keep their high paying job and not doing what is best for employees and the system as a whole.

    I have been working at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership and training. Many opportunities to move up.

    Cons

    Tough economic environment for health care right now. Many budget cuts and "Lean" programs to save money.

    Advice to Management

    Talk straight to your employees about the money situations facing health care providers. Let them know that their jobs may be on the line if they don't do their part and shape up!

    I worked at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I absolutely loved the people I worked with. It made everything worth it. We worked well together on our unit.

    Cons

    I found that I never got off of work on time. With 6 patients overnight, many times we would have to stay and catch up on something. Some mornings we would also have to give report to 4 or 5 different nurses, so it always ended up going late. Also, if there were fewer patients for each nurse I know we could get to know their stories better.
