    I worked at Excela Health part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is higher than other hospitals in the area and they are willing to hire individuals with little experience and train you, rather than strictly hire individuals with a higher level of experience.

    Cons

    The hours and benefits are less than excellent.

    Advice to Management

    Remain consistent with policies. If there is a rule stick to it and don't change it based on the day of the week.

    I worked at Excela Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great managers and coworkers. Immediate supervisors are willing to listen and work out issues.

    Cons

    Company going throw growing pains. Company needs to change with the times as far as flexibility with hours, shifts etc. Company could be more competitive with wages.

    I worked at Excela Health full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated staff especially at Latrobe Hospital, who are more than willing to go above and beyond to help you and take care of patients and their families.

    Cons

    Too many changes too quickly in nursing driven initiatives over the past 4 years. Exceptional staff left over these initiatives because they were overwhelmed with changes in policies or procedures that seemed to occur one after the other..... after the other..

    Advice to Management

    Taking care of the patient should be paramount and should not take a second seat to an advance degree pursuit or a seat on a committee. Change is better accepted when it is done gradually over a period of time so that staff can adjust and put their own priorities in order including work-life balance.

    Pros

    The people in my departments were tops. We helped each other and knew how to care for our patients and each other. Also, there is an onsite cafeteria and snack shop

    Cons

    Administration is now mostly financial with little medical input. You can not run a hospital system like you run a grocery or clothing store. They have taken the feeling of community away from the employees and the patients and their families.

    Advice to Management

    The board needs medical people who can help balance the financial decisions being made. Managers need to step out of their offices and comfort zones and spend time in the actual facility with the employees and the patients and families. Also, have people go into different departments as a patient or family member, like a secret shopper, and see what you find out.


  7. Coworkers were the one good thing about working there.

    I worked at Excela Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    My coworkers were wonderful. Helped each other out. Decent pay Loved the patients and loved caring for them. Enjoyed free parking.

    Cons

    ALWAYS understaffed. Poor morale overall. Decisions made about staff which detrimentally effected them but did not ask for staff input. Upper management turned a blind eye to direct complaints about people and situations that negatively impact staff and patients.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself why so many people have left/are leaving for employment elsewhere and if you're willing to ask that question, address and rectify the issues. Do not dismiss or ignore them.


  8. Very limited exposure to overall ops.

    I have been working at Excela Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you live close to the facility and salary and beenfits are not an issue, it will suffice.

    Cons

    Excela, sadly, does not value their employee, as demonstrated by their lack of adding points back for extra help from the employees above and beyond; coming in on a day off to help / working 55-60 hrs. a week in a salaried position, etc.. - no reward system for the good things done, but definite points off for any other infractions..

    Advice to Management

    Initiate the same payback system with "reward points" as you have with points off - point for point. Seperate out sick time, PTO & Holiday time off, raise salaries across the board. Value your employees!

    Pros

    Fantastic people to work along side of. Nice benefit package. Community focused care and involvment within the communities that are serviced. People really care about patients and co-workers.

    Cons

    As all companies, we can strive to do better with communications.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency and communications. This has improved, but we still have work to do. Changing culture is a very difficult task but we are achieving a more effective, patient centered care culture.

    Pros

    Generally great care for a community hospital, benefits package very competitive with exception of cost of living raises, overall friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Management is in constant chaos with revolving door of upper management, employment very unstable as priorities change, significant differences between campuses unresolved, definitely matters "who you are" as to how you are treated. Anyone having worked in a tertiary care hospital will despise the MD/RN relationship- no respect whatsoever.

    Advice to Management

    Physically GO to the treatment areas and talk to staff. Follow through. Keep promises. Keep everyone on the same page and accountable in upper management.
