The standard of practice was met. But standard practice is disappointing.

I worked at Avera McKennan Hospital full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Potential to be a 5 star place to work.

Cons

Flying by the seat of their pants, and growing too fast. Failure to step back and plan, implies they are planning for failure or mediocrity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Local administrative management sets the tone of the facility, and the tone that was set was negative.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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!
