Pros

They express a desire to be a top rated hospital.

Cons

Consistently changing of unit director/managers about every two years creating chaos and uncertainty. The CEO is a visonary who generally selects autocratic executives in a continuing effort to achieve his "vision".

Advice to Management

The board should take a long hard look at the disaster they have created based on their lack of oversight, and also consider the impact on medical and support staff. The essence of any good organization is the manner in which they treat their staff, and that treatment is reflected in the concern and care for their patients.

    Pros

    The ability to learn and grow with the company was a nice way to keep the job interesting. The management were very supportive of students and very flexible with their needs.

    Cons

    I did not feel that human resources was very interested in the people that worked for the company.

    Advice to Management

    The upper management were not very accessible and were at times distant with the employees. It felt awkward to be around them which is not good for morale. The director of the department where I worked was wonderful and my supervisors were great. Some of the radiology technicians were mean to students which I think management should be aware of, bullying is wrong, especially to adults in the workplace.

  2. Great hospital for patients, very poor hospital for non-senior employees

    Pros

    CRMC is very people focused, both in treating people as patients with illness or injury, and as treating people as customers and meeting or exceeding expectations. As the only public access hospital in the county, CRMC does not rest on its laurels, but is all the time trying to increase what it can offer to the city of Cheyenne and Laramie county. Many of the employees that work here are friendly people who enjoy taking care of others

    Cons

    Bottom Line Up Front: If you are not a physician, a senior nurse or senior administration, you aren't making the hospital big money and are therefore easily replaced.
     This attitude comes from many of the senior positions such as charge nurses, practice managers and department heads. It is *especially* prevalent towards allied health technicians, lower-level administrative personnel and nurses that don't have a specialty. Medical assistants, LPNs, receptionists, imaging and lab personnel often get this 'fact' thrown in their face directly or obliquely. Eventually, this dissatisfaction of not feeling valued by your department/floor/clinic ends up washing over onto patients, which is very sad, but very human.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management creates program after program, launches them afloat, and then simply just leaves. There is very little interaction with 'the man in the ring', which is where senior leaders would actually get fairly accurate advice as to how to *really* improve patient care and customer service. But when your new CEO doesn't even *live* in the area, this is not a surprise. The upper management is significantly out of touch with the non-physician people who actually have face-to-face contact and care with our patients - and this is a significant problem.
