I have been working at Northwest Community Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

No vast unknown corporate entity not paying attention to us - we are all in one major campus. Small town feel, patients are community members - but many are from out of staff due to MD skill base. Education is encouraged, Nursing empowered.

Cons

Much change, many long term RNs (10+, 20+, 30+ years) are unsure of the huge shift, new leadership (Huge change, many had been here 20+ years). I say hold on & watch NCH take charge in the change of healthcare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think top leadership has a good vision, middle management - some are shaky and hopefully they will either upright themselves or replace with stronger candidates. Bruce is no longer CEO, information on site is incorrect. Do approve of the new CEO, Steve.

    Pros

    A lot of the high level management has left leaving room for new ideas. Epic is starting soon. Cafeteria is improving.

    Cons

    The IT is old and slow. The layout is complicated, people get lost all the time.
