Transition to Hartford Healthcare is very bumpy

Senior Distributed Programmer Analyst (Current Employee)
Hartford, CT

I have been working at Hartford Hospital full-time for more than 8 years

ProsThis was a reasonably good place to work and some good people are still working here but many are leaving.

ConsPoor management, no clear sense of direction, IT systems are in complete disarray and new hires in this area lack management and it skills

Advice to Senior ManagementOutsource Finance and IT departments, Complete the move to an EPIC integrated EHR and the system might have a chance to compete.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Painful overhaul with new management

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Hartford, CT

I worked at Hartford Hospital

ProsMy direct supervisor was a true mentor--helped me immensely to grow in my field. The benefits were quite good. Most of all, the majority of the clinicians were skilled and dedicated

ConsThe worst aspect was the top-heavy, tone-deaf senior management (hospital administrators who had little or no clinical background). There were Office Space-like meetings to indoctrinate staff in the new corporate philosophies--"the Seven Pillars of Excellence" or some such nonsense. There was a constant mantra that feedback was welcome, yet departmental meetings were chaperoned by administrative lackeys. What staff needed was more time with patients and tools to make documentation and communication easier--instead, we got key chains with the logo "you are the key to Hartford Hospital's success!"

Advice to Senior ManagementAdministrators should walk a couple miles in the shoes of clinicians (rather than spending lots of money on outside consultants and logos--neither of which seem to have been worth the investment). This is an institution rich in world-class health practitioners and mental health clinicians--LISTEN to them (and not via a minion/chaperone).

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Okay, could be better

Research Fellow (Current Employee)

I have been working at Hartford Hospital

ProsGreat work ethics and hospital is located in downtown hartford

ConsLocated in a not-too-good part of town. Safety is an issue.

Advice to Senior Managementhospital is going through a lot of remodelling - structurally and management wise. They recently merged with surrounding hospital. Management does a great job of carrying all the employees along with the renovation and various changes
