Pros

The staff is great. The hospital has incorporated an electronic medical records system and has Pyxis machines for pharmacuticals. As the only hospital in town, it is hard not to recommend it as a place to work.

Cons

Senior Management recently seems to have shifted their focus to being driven only by profit, without real concern for patients or staff.

Advice to Management

Happy staff means happy patients.

    Pros

    fair pay decent benefits. A lot of room (too much really) for upward mobility There are MANY nice people!

    Cons

    WAY, WAY too much politics!!!! CYA is a constant battle. The culture is "keep everybody in check so they don't make mistakes rather than equip them so there's fewer chances of mistakes. A huge waste of human potential lost to CYA and politics. 50% of our time (at a minimum) lost, that could be for the better of all.

    Advice to Management

    Get a real CEO with vision, who can fix this wicked culture. A person who has actually operated a hospital in successful fashion. Keep and leave bean counters in accounting, not in management that requires conceptual, revolutionary and swift change. What is the goal here? What is the 5 year plan? What does the governing board expect from the CEO and when?
