average care for average people, not-state-of-the-art

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Gundersen Lutheran Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

Prosmany outlying clinics in areas that need medical care available
some excellent subspecialists and physical therapists
some people care

Conscan't get seen in some departments for 6 months (as new patient)
patient care when it is convenient for staff, and staff want it to stay this way
people in management positions want things to stay status quo, don't want to bring care up to date
communication is terrible both within and between departments

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the people in management that don't understand that care needs to be up to date and that lying can't be tolerated and is unprofessional.
Get rid of staff that are not interested in being true, real patient advocates. Too many older employees are coasting instead of working hard for the patient.
Figure out how to get departments who can't be bothered to see a new patient for 6 months up to speed so that patients are taken care of in a timely fashion. People can't wait that long.
If you really want to offer state-of-the-art care then find out what that really, really means outside of La Crosse and then do it, or don't advertise that you are right up there with the best.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
