    Pros

    They care about your thoughts and feelings. They promote growth in the company. They provide excellent patient care. I would bring my family here for treatment. You receive support from Corporate down and you are not just a number.

    Cons

    I would like to see the company continue to grow and become number one in the nation.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rewarding the employees and holding people accountable and promoting team work because we know it works.

    Pros

    I worked in the medical coding department. There was a good work-life balance. The coding lead/managers were always helpful and supportive. The people I worked with in my department and at the corporate office were all great. When I worked there, there was excellent time off/vacation. I was able to work 8 hours a day everyday, and when my time was up, I was done for the day.

    Cons

    The health insurance progressively got worse. There was pressure from upper management in regards to medical coding that felt like it could become noncompliant over time. As a medical coder, the field wasn't well trained on clinical documentation needs, which could be problematic when need to get information clarified.

    Advice to Management

    An improved clinical documentation program would make a world of difference on revenue and compliance.

    Pros

    Smaller hospital very easy to manage if CEO and management was supportive.

    Cons

    There was no support from the CEO or management. I was hired as an EVS Supervisor I came in working very hard to whip things into shape. The hospital's housekeeping department had no order,there was never enough towels,linen, or shower curtains in stock. There was not even adaquate cleaning equipment there, and yet the CEO's only concern was to coddle the EVS employees, so that no one ever got mad with her, she wasn't concerned with the continued cleanliness of the hospital.There were repeated on-the-spot call ins and no one was ever written up, but yet I was called in and written up because of a miscommunication regarding an employees work day. This place is the pits and the CEO and management will run this place in the ground. The CEO even talked about sexual indiscretions of the former Supervisor and I found that to be very unprofessional. The CEO and management was very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    There should be a CEO and management in place performing their job duties, but instead they are sitting in their offices allday playing on their iPads and iPhones. Learn to support positive work environments.

    Pros

    Staff and immediate supervisors are great to work with. I met some really wonderful people in the time I worked there. There were also some great educational opportunities.

    Cons

    The people in upper management had a lot of turnover in time that I worked there. 3 CEO's, 3 DON's, 3 HR managers in less than 2 years. There is a culture of employees blaming each other and stabbing one another in the back. Gossiping is widespread; it is a very toxic work environment if you are not in with the popular crowd. I have never worked in such a place that felt like I was back in high school.

    Advice to Management

    Address conflicts and gossiping. Having a policy of "Zero tolerance" means nothing if you allow slander and back stabbing on a daily basis. Listen to the staff. Recognize that staff needs support in order to do the best job.
