Pros

In general there are truly great caring people that work to serve patients. The top leadership of the organization is very good and is consistently working hard to communicate.

Cons

Too many demands on IS without a cohesive system-wide approach to the strategic plans of the entire organization rather than just functional areas.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IS Leadership needs to focus on priorities rather than switching directions every month. Follow the strategic plan.

    I worked at Memorial Medical Center (IL) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people to work with. This rural based hospital had a very family oriented enviroment. All the C-Class administrators were great to work for and personable.

    Cons

    In 2009 things changed for the worse. A highly respected CEO stepped down for retirement and the board hired a replacement. The replacement wasn't a good fit and caused serious tension amongs the staff at all levels. He was removed shortly after hire, but not after causing serious moral damage to the hospital. The board failed to see the error of their ways and when when they hired an interim CEO, more moral destructive issues resumed. To this day, the atmosphere isn't what it used to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hard to give advice. The major problem isn't with managment, but the board. The hospital needs to get away from being a county entity. It also needs to impose term limits to its board members. Members should not seat for nearly 20+ yrs
