I have been working at Overlake Medical Center and Clinics full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good commute, small hospital, pleasant upper management, aimed to serve a target population, apparent empathy and compassion for patients suffering.

Cons

Very deceptive in regards to the nature of the jobs they post. The supervisors are micromanagers that believe that procedures have to be done in one way only and that is theirs which they learned decades and decades ago. When it comes to empowering and embracing new ideas and focusing on the employees strengths to gain cooperation they are completely clueless and fearful. The old school belt and punishment to gain control type management reigns in the lab. This is a reflection of their lack of experience and insecurity as they have been doing the same job forever without exposure to modern management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Train the laboratory managers and supervisors so that they embrace the policies that upper management preaches. Verify that managers and supervisors follow the guidelines set up by human resources and not their own personal agendas.

    Pros

    Finally converted over to EPIC online patient records system

    Cons

    Strongly political. Leadership dislike thinking in a business mode resulting in poor discussions. Out of touch CEO recently announced retirement after Hospital failed to make yearly financial goals. Hospital feels adrift with no focus as replacement has yet to be identified.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't have to give up being good Dr and Nurses to also be a lucrative business. The hospitals that do will survive.
