Pros

Competitive salary. The number of health care professionals (vs finance professionals) at the corporate office is growing, which is an attempt to redirect the focus of the company on the importance of population health management rather than solely hospital operations management.

Cons

The company is short-sighted on profits and willing to compromise care to achieve the needs of Wall Street. Corporate management has deferred to the expertise of physicians practicing within the hospitals, rather than an interdisciplinary approach to patient care, which is leading to significant profit wasting, conflict with the supporting staff and low employee morale. Values are merely listed on the employee brochure, but are not woven into the culture or expectations of employees. The HR focus is disproportionately in favor of recruitment rather than retention and employee development. Turnover amongst the C-suite executives at the hospitals as well as at the corporate office create much disruption to the success of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support quality care initiatives focused on improving health outcomes and the money will follow - we no longer live in 1975, and the business model should evolve accordingly.

    Pros

    It was a pleasure getting venders and their clients equipment needed to get patients on the road to recovery. It was a great feeling to see the patients and their families smile after you have brought them the latest technology for improvement.

    Cons

    Long hours at times while on call and long mileage trips in all kinds of weather, but that's the price to pay when in the life saving business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More facilities Statewide to have more adequate coverage to increase proficiency.
