I worked at Via Christi Health System full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The organization has a great mission and are driven in providing quality healthcare. Executive leadership was organizing and driving towards better health care and patient experience. Benefits were good and time-off was so-so but work life balance was encouraged and supported.

Cons

Some executive and middle-management leadership was archaic and paternalistic, but I believe the new CEO was addressing changing the leadership culture. Worst part of the job is Wichita KS. Not much of a town and situated in the middle of nowhere. The town's main industry, aircraft manufacturing, is faltering.

    I worked at Via Christi Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, higher than average salaries, retirement benefits, lots of employees who really want to make a difference

    Cons

    Lack of annual pay increases, inept middle management staff, poor auditing capabilities as related to vendor support and contracts, poor performing employees are not dealt with

    Advice to Management

    A hard look at your directors would prove beneficial, especially in IT. The moral has taken a nose-dive in the past 5-6 years, and executives seem to be oblivious to under-qualified directors and managers.


  2. An outstanding place to work

    Pros

    Via Christi is focused on providing excellent patient care, while ensuring that employees are treated well. They are facing the challenges of a changing healthcare industry head on, looking for ways to do more with less, while maintaining the best operating environment possible. Their focus on employees is shown in that for 2013, they chose to eliminate all pay increases for employees rather than lay off 350. Through shared sacrifice, they believe that we are all made stronger.

    Cons

    The healthcare environment is difficult and will only become more so.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share the vision, direction and focus of the organization with employees. Continue to listed to the clinicians and support staff as we work to make this the best healthcare provider available.
