I have been working at Genesis Health System

Pros

The new CEO seems to be making an effort. I think he has been there 2 years.
Most work atmospheres are positive. CEU opportunities through Genesis.
My practice has very flexible physicians easy to work with.
Most do not agree with the way I am treated by the Medical Management and Corporation.

Cons

Physician Assistants are not given contracts this was taken away from us several years ago. Let that be your first warning sign in the interview process. The industry standard for all mid level practitioners and physicians is to have a contract. Wages are frozen for PA's but not for physicians. Your job may be changed at anytime without warning. If a new physician comes into practice all new referrals are given to the physician, unless you are very verbal. Of course your income depends upon how much money you make for the practice. Directors of the Medical Group are very Doctor friendly don't expect to be part of the group, while reimbursement for CEU's etc continues to rise for this group it will not for us has not for years despite numerous efforts. Mindset is you can and will be replaced. Plenty of new graduates to take your place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More respect for the midlevels. Bring back the contract. Bring pay up to respectable levels. Take a long, hard look at the people you have over the Medical Staff. How about Genesis as a Magnet destination for Physician Assistants and Nurse Practitioners? If safety and fiscal responsibility are important to you, this group should be very important to you. This group is the future of healthcare. They provide medical care to large portion of Genesis patients with good results. One day we may be taking care of you or one of your loved ones. Bring in the best to Genesis.

    Pros

    Working for a company that helps people. Cutting edge technology.

    Cons

    The health care industry is becoming a place that needs to improve efficiency but at the same time is not bringing in the money it used to in the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a time to cut costs and not spend a lot on improvements. Keep what is good and cut waste is the best way to stay on top.

    Pros

    They are better then Trinity and thats about it.

    Cons

    Where to begin. There's more managers then doctors which is a problem. They all seem to have no authority to make and decisions without talking to someone else. Even upper management have to talk to the CEO before the smallest decision can be made. Busy Doctors arent having contracts renewed and the hospital is under staffed in all areas minus management. Pay is the lowest in the state and lowest in the midwest.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys think getting rid of a couple executives helped? You need to get rid of all the middle management and give more responsibility to the ones you keep. You need doctors and surgeons to make money for the hospital so keep as many as possible and resign as many as possible. You cant run a hospital without them so stop getting rid of them.
