    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Crystal City, MO

    ProsPeople are friendly and very caring, close knit as a work force. Can count on all employees to treat patients like a family member.

    ConsNot enought staff in some areas. Too strict on absentism, better Insurance plan needed. Middle mangement isnt always seen in some depts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Physical Therapy Aide/Internship

    Internist (Current Employee) Pine Bluff, AR

    ProsPhysical therapists are a great group however they are not contracted by the hospital.

    ConsNot very clean
    hospital doesn't treat staff real well,
    patients always seem irritated by doctors

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat staff better. Don't overbook nurses and others. Help patients to feel stronger within their chambers and not so cooped up.

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

    Good position in a difficult city to live in. Need both excellent nursing skills and managerial skills

    Nurse Manager (Current Employee) Pine Bluff, AR

    ProsHospital is the only medical center in a large referral area. See's many patients with multiple problems. Offers all major surgical specialities except transplants. Very busy due to the type of patients in client area. Managerial support is fairly good considering.

    ConsDifficult city to live in, bad schools in city, average schools in suburbs. Shopping is terrible. Restaurants are few. Hospital is old with many new additions--spread out. Has very difficult medical staff and two few specialists in key areas to spread the work around. Senior management seems to be top heavy, but they are supportive. Good older population that supports the mission of the Medical Center. Patient mix is getting worse with older, Medicaid and Medicare clients. Many non-pay patients who are demanding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementToo top heavy, too much importance placed on getting advanced degrees for nurses (MS and above). Salary is commensurate with area but have a smaller pool of qualified nurses to choose from due to Little Rock being 40 miles away. Need to work on nurse retention. Need to work on Medical Staff respect for non-MD personnel. Medical Staff is too powerful and has ear of CEO. Too much money being spent on purchasing MD practices and offices.
