Legacy is filled with some truly wonderful professionals, but it is struggling for footing in today's health care world.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Portland, OR

ProsLegacy Health has a laudable mission, many dedicated and highly skilled professionals, and a desire to do the right thing in the community. Amazing work happens within the hospital walls every day. The quality of medical care and human caring is high.

ConsSomething is off balance about the system's culture. Perhaps it is the result of trying to knit together six hospitals that, in some senses, compete against each other for limited resources. Yet all the hospitals and system office staff are supposed to work together as one unified family. The organization has not yet found a way to make it work. The culture and leadership can be excellent at the hospital level, however, so your job satisfaction can really depend on the site you work.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more nimble. Be better at recognizing your talent and giving talented employees new opportunities and appropriate pay. Take at look at your executives: Do they have the leadership skills the system needs? Seek ideas and input from your front-line workers. Take a voluntary pay cut when you are involved in a RIF.
