    I have been working at Franciscan Health System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great people work for this organization that care deeply about the mission and values

    Cons

    CHI (National Office) is out of touch with reality. Company is run by consultants in Denver versus folks who have worked in the trenches actually delivering care. Senior leadership at CHI is systematically outsourcing everything in an effort to quickly reduce costs without understanding the incredible impact this will ultimately have on the region's ability to deliver effective, excellent care to patients or retain top talent. The organization is a good 10 years behind the competition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to strongly advocate what is needed to provide safe, effective care in the markets. Remember you get what you pay for.

    I have been working at Franciscan Health System part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employees and physicians care about patients.

    Cons

    Cuts corners, lacks adequent password protection to patients records, physicians change studies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The goal of being the best place to work is lip service to the public. Your managers do not like meetings or email as they misrepresent and lie to staff. More damage is done by word of mouth and internet.
