    I worked at Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare

    Pros

    There are many changes going on in healthcare in general, however this company seems like they are not interested in the people that built this organization.

    Cons

    Overall culture of this organization needs an overhaul. Not a good environment for growth. Often looking over your shoulder for the next layoff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on your people, they are what can make or break your organization.

    I have been working at Jewish Hospital & St. Mary's HealthCare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Highly educated, dedicated professionals. Great people to work with at the patient level,esp on nights. Great place to get experience esp if you're a self starter and like autonomy.

    Cons

    Now a part of CHI-decreasing practice of best care standards,laying off RNs and RTs,laying off all RTs in their outpatient ERs. Very busy downtown hospital often understaffed. The benefit of being downtown is being surrounded by a strong staff when help is needed immediately. Upper management is no longer a benefit,but a burden. Rumor of more cuts coming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk with the workers to develop plans,implement plans and develop new strategies. Too much upper level mismanagement that translates poorly at the patient level, too much outside contract 'advisor' management has correlated to extremely poor financial performance,lack of direction,tardy market decisions, low morale and less attention to patient care as well as less staff for more patients. Management is not giving educated, dedicated professionals at the patient level proper consideration. Upper management is taking the 'care' out of 'patient care'.

    Pros

    I hve been working at jewish for 3yrs. The things that I have learned really has helped me. If you make it at jewish you can make it at any hospital.I have learned so much, wouldnt trade it for anything.

    Cons

    The pay is very bad, you have to really like what you do to work here. If you focus on the pay, you wont be here very long

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more, show you appreciate your employees by paying them a decent salary
