Pros

Health, dental and vision benefits very good.

Cons

Paid time off is 20 days a year or so including official holidays. Management spends money on "marketing" the President while laying off people in the facilities and corporate offices. DH promtes hello humankindness aa if they invented the concept of kindness. Kindness starts at home not in advertising spots in newspapers and tv. Management treatment of people very, very poor. Managers in my department treat staff with disrespect. People are starting to leave now that more jobs are available rlsewhere.

Advice to Management

Corporate leadership should Reduce your salaries and bonuses and use the money to improve services. Stop the junket tours to Italy, London and elsewhere and use company's money for patient care.

    Why the name change from Catholic Healthcare West?

    Pros

    none. Although, they do have charming portraits of nuns from days of yesteryear

    Cons

    Approximately two years ago a surgeon was in the process of attempting to save a troubled pregnancy. It appeared the fetus would have only a 10% chance of survival if the delivery proceeded. The woman on the other hand would have a 40% opportunity to live.

    His decision was to abort the fetus thereby saving the woman's life, to perhaps have a child at some future date.

    Remember this was "Catholic" Healthcare West. The surgeon was fired on the spot, at which point an entire name change to "Dignity" Health took place over a weekend. Then a rather porkish representative (try a better lifestyle), made a live appearance on the media stating that the management felt "Dignity" better represented the organization's profile.

    Right...

    Advice to Management

    No advice to management, but rather to the Board of Directors of this For-Profit organization owning 42 or more hospitals -- there is a reason many private sector individuals in the Silicon Valley would not set foot in a healthcare institution. The IQ from physicians down appears to be shaped as an inverted triangle.

    Pros

    The hospitalists and nursing care, in general, are exceptional. Highly impressive inpatient orthopedic joint program and inpatient cardia surgery program.

    Cons

    Middle management, as with many companies, could make it happen to turn around departmental employee satisfaction, if it were a high enough priority.
    CNA's are overworked. DH is listening and addressing EVS issues.

    Advice to Management

    Promotions for all departments, not just nursing.
