    I have been working at Ephrata Community Hospital

    Pros

    The people are great, Very friendly / caring

    Cons

    Recently merged with Wellspan Health. Values do not match. Wellspan is much more the Big Corporate attitude and it is infecting Ephrata.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ephrata Management needs to reverse the infection to instead make Wellspan a friendly / caring place to work.

    I have been working at Ephrata Community Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits.
    Some good people.

    Cons

    Management.
    Human resources.
    No communications.
    Hostile.
    Low pay.
    No work/life balance.

    Departments laid off with very little to no notice makes everyone nervous as Wellspan already laid off some paramedics already in York. And now an EMS department has been disbanded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees from all levels. Don't have separate meetings for an entire department. "Oh some people can't make it to the meeting?? Well they'll find out". No let them have a say.

    I worked at Ephrata Community Hospital full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best parts of working for Ephrata Hospital are the compassionate care givers working for the hospital. Some people give everything. These people can make things happen for great patient care.

    Cons

    Some people came there to be comfortable. They have stayed too long. Therefore everything returns to way it use to be. They are non engaged especially after 6:00 PM Weekends and holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with best practices and work with credentialed people. Respect the people who actually are hands on managers.

    Pros

    Rewarding, you can make a difference every day.

    Cons

    Pay scale doesn't match the responsibility level. Too much time training new people because many experienced employees go elsewhere for better salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your loyal and skilled employees so well that they don't want to leave. A good work ethic is hard to find and training new people takes years. By retaining folks with a great skill set, you keep patient loyalty.
