    Pros

    Well intentioned people trying to do their best and are trying as they define qualify to give good patient care.

    Cons

    Second rate, banana republic culture. The innovation and market attitudes of the old Southwest were ignored. PH is lulled into the experience and myopia of one-hospital markets. Healthcare reform is going to eat them alive. PH employees are known as caregivers rather than employees or staff members. One of the gifts from the mission based PH leadership when they merged with Southwest was to kill-off the old Southwest defined benefit pension plan for Southwest caregivers -- leaving many employees at mid career out in the cold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The CEO, Alan Yordy is a 30-year PH employee. He knows no other culture or experience other than PH. PH does not bring in new talent to lead, and if they do, it is from other Catholic outfits. The notion of looking to the broader market for new ideas and leadership is an anathema. (In fairness, I believe that this is a challenge for many Catholic run hospital organizations). The Board Chair, Sister Andrea is very tough and likely likely comes from the same cloth that gave us nuns with rulers. I had first hand dealings with her and I left those encounters with doubts. Sister Andrea and Yordy live in a room of mirrors... they think they know best and they do not. Management and control is highly centralized. Delegation is limited and a lot of jobs end just being routine and lacking opportunity.
