Pros

the few remaining employees who still try to give great patient care despite the avalanche of garbage they're trying to withstand, co-workers seem for the most part to support each other

Cons

every day something else happens, feeling like you're walking into a minefield every day you go to work, has decimated the morale of the workforce, employees feel like management does not care about them at all, more demands on fewer staff while the number of CEOs seems to multiply.

Advice to Management

If you can't figure out what you're doing without running to consultants, can't communicate with staff because you don't know what you're doing, can't staff units to provide quality patient care, then get out of the health care business.

    Pros

    UC Health isn't afraid to spend money on patient services like high tech equipment and fancy buildings and high end décor. If you want the latest and greatest technologies this is the place.

    Cons

    Completely left customer service as a thing of the past. Great customer service in health care allows a person TIME to process and heal. But it's all about money now. Under previous CEO Rulon Stacey the PVH system was a coveted place to work with very high employee satisfaction and a stellar reputation that health care providers were top notch experienced care givers. Now it's scared mangagers, new grads (because they are cheap and hungry and in debt), and employees that can't leave. After the UC take over PVH lost it's soul. Such a shame. Patients get the shaft in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Experienced health care providers are worth the extra money in salaries. People (patients) aren't widgets and can't be processed like a factory. The prior model of patient and family centered care is what made PVH great. The new model will most certainly doom the whole hospital to eventual take over by another bigger corporation. Remember the burning platform???
