i am so glad i came here

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Arlington Heights, Cook, IL

Prosthey actually "walk the talk" by that i mean that upper management treats us like we are supposed to treat our patients.
for example: when we had a bad snow storm a couple years ago, freezing cold. the CEO and HR Dir. were in the garage thanking people w/ a blockbuster gift card. then they walked thru the hospital doing the same thing.
i came from a hospital which :said: "Patients come first" but actually their message was "make it look like patients come first and closely control the $$"
not that my hospital hasn't had the typical downturn in this recent economy, we have. but spirits are high, vacancies are very low. and even when we had a freeze on raises they made it palatable.

Consno on-site child care, [nevertheless we were awarded 100 best places to work.]
they are slow to make changes. we just got computer charting 2 yrs ago. and we are still not totally paperless yet. ex: computer Dr orders are still gradually being phased in.
meals are rather expensive- except breakfast.
we are going to consistent uniform colors [that can be good but also $$ in transition]

Advice to Senior Managementkeep up the good work. continue to be visible. and even more when the economy is slow

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
