I have been working at Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The nurses are doctors along with patients are much nicer than you would expect to meet in a similiar situation

Cons

The nurses, receptionists and housekeeping are very underpaid since mercy along with Iowa health has a monopoly on health care jobs. Since there are only two large employers they work together to artificially suppress wages for anyone less than a doctor or mngmt.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider showing your employees respect in the form of wage compensation not just hollow words.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse  in  Des Moines, IA
    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Des Moines, IA

    I worked at Mercy Medical Center - Des Moines part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great salary, reasonable paid time off, insurance benefits are respectable.

    Cons

    Mercy is owned by a corporation and it completely changes the goal of patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is easy to let employees under mid management get lost in the crowd. I can only imagine how difficult it is to juggle the needs of the patient with the requirements of corporation. I don't know how you would remedy that. This may be the new direction of health care.
