Pros

MedStar Health is a leader in Healthcare in the Washington-Baltimore Region. The company is clinically innovative and working hard to move from "Good to Great." You should be proud to work for MedStar as it is very progressive and will be a surviver and leader in the years to come as healthcare evolves.

Cons

MedStar has grown through acquisition and as such the culture is still evolving. There is tension between the desire to have a single integrated corporate culture and at the same time to maintain autonomy between the operating units.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more assertive in developing an integrated organization.

    I have been working at MedStar Health

    Pros

    Great benefits and great line staff. I have always appreciated my peers while working at MedStar.

    Cons

    The IT department has been underfunded for 10 years. This has caused a dramatic shortfall in technology that has put the company in a difficult position. This has left the company with no other choice except to outsource technology services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the employees below the management level. We tried to keep the IT infrastructure modern but our funding was turned down on numerous occasions. Now MedStar has to play catch-up to get where they need to be.
