    Dedicated front line staff. Senior leadership is not visible or show care about their employees.

    I worked at HealthAlliance Hospital Inc

    Pros

    Dedicated front line staff who truly care about patient safety and satisfaction.

    Cons

    Nursing leadership is non existent and not visible. Many front line staff don't even know who the CNO is or what she looks like. She is not present at key events or in times of crisis and is seen as a negative, uncaring person when staff is let go due to a reduction in force. She has been known to lock herself in her office and allow others to break bad news to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul the nursing leadership starting at the top. HealthAlliance needs nursing leadership that is present, visible and caring to the front line staff.

    Pros

    Great group of comitted employees who really care about the quality of services they deliver to the Community.
    Very progressive medical practices. Dr's are very competent and current best practices are common.
    Overall friendly staff who treat each other with respect. Most Managers do not even treat each other with respect.

    Cons

    My opinion is based on my many years of experience working there.I believe my views are shared.
    Lack of Management Leadership-
    Sr. Management is inconsistent and lacks integrity in Policy Management-Trust is not there.
    Cutting Benefits last few years-Culture is not a healthy environment for many.
    Compensation is ok but not competitive in many areas.
    HR lacks consistency and credibility with many Managers.Very ineffective HR Leadership seems to be a common complaint.
    Attrition is probably highest amongst Nursing Services and Allied Health. They are lucky to have Union Representation for the Employees.
    Most Managers do not even treat each other with respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turn over many of your Senior Managers starting with long term ineffective Sr, Managers .My opinion is a widely shared opinion.The old boy network is strong and really needs some fresh, insightful and contemporary replacements for them.
    Put consistency in Policy Management and try to quit squeezing every last dime from employees.
    Morale is terrible in many departments and when the market improves you will lose some great talent in Patient Services and Allied Health.
