    Former Employee - Patient Liaison/Event Management in Louisville, KY

    I worked at KentuckyOne Health full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Loved the people I worked with...most really cared about what they were doing

    Cons

    Company has a long way to go. Nobody ever seems to know what the next person is doing. Poor management hiring decisions. Many are hired from the 'good old boys' group and don't really know what they are doing. I left a great position to take on a new position - then was let go because the position was deemed unnecessary. This was not fair to me or the people that I was working with/overseeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Being a good therapist does not make for good management skills. Make sure when you hire someone it is for their knowledge and skills of the position, not to 'fill a need' for something/someone else. Too many chiefs...not enough Indians.

    I have been working at KentuckyOne Health full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with patients to be sure their needs are met at discharge, that part is rewarding. I also enjoy most of my coworkers. I think the case management department really does care about doing a good job for the patients.

    Cons

    It is supposed to be a no overtime department, unless they are short-staffed and need you to work an extra day on the weekend, HA! They are almost always short staffed and expect you to do the work of 1.5-2 people on a regular basis. There is a lot of turnover in the department. The manager that just left was very difficult to deal with, critical, very little people skills. The new manager has better people skills, but is more interested in utilization review that case management, not sure how that is going to work out down the line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hospital really needs to step up and provide better psych coverage, more services on weekends, adequate staffing for case management in order to keep the length of stay down where they want it. The hospital recently closed down 2 units and laid off 80+ staff, morale is down...

    Pros

    The pay was ok. My coworkers were nice people and made me feel welcomed.

    Cons

    The amount of work that was put on one person was unbelievable. I was expected to clean the entire building by myself.

    Appreciate the hard working employees

    I have been working at KentuckyOne Health full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good employees, good managers in Louisville,, room for career growth, good pay.

    Cons

    Too much chaos after the merger with CHI. Too many issues with CHI's software that are not being dealt with. Senior management in Denver is unresponsive and makes unrealistic demands. Job cuts put too much work on remaining employees. Very, very stressful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your local management. You will get much better results if you deal with problems now rather than ignore them. Fix the problems or increase staffing to deal with them.

    I have been working at KentuckyOne Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is an organization that is trying many innovative ideas

    Cons

    Unfortunately, they lack the ability to execute on these ideas. The organization is lacking transparency, leadership, direction and compassion. Rapid turnover at key positions has left vast swathes of the company without direction. Senior management does not communicate priorities and directives with staff. There is a distinct lack of trust among legacy employees from the three partner organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a toxic environment. Most employees I interact with have either left or are actively looking for another job. Show us leadership and provide a singular direction. Give your employees a reason to believe in you because right now they do not.

    Pros

    Benefits are descent and affordable

    Cons

    don't care about the people that work for them, just the money - in healthcare - there is more to a business than the money..there is a person behind it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to treat people with loyalty - there is none of this at KentuckyOne Health.

    Pros

    Great local facility caregivers who love patients and want to give quality care. Caring physicians who want the best for patients.

    Cons

    CEO is great politician but terrible otherwise. Very emotional decision making at the top with little respect to values of the company. Just take a look at the last CFO who lasted all of a few months and destroyed the finance department. Others aren't much better. It is more of who you know at the top rather than competence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace the entire senior team.

    Pros

    Most co-workers are nice and it provides decent care.

    Cons

    This hospital was wonderful until a shift in leadership rewarded politics over quality care. I question their integrity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recent choices have pushed out leaders and staff who care about quality care, while rewarding those who will step on others to get ahead. Very sad to watch a good hospital go downhill and people who committed their lives to good patient care get driven away.
