    Pros

    Some great people, former CEO was long tenured and in touch with staff. Non profit with for profit outpatient imaging.

    Cons

    Financial losses, layoffs, outsourcing, no raises/bonuses, staff morale low. Competition in local community with stronger marketing and financial resources.

    They do NOT appreciate nursing staff! Prepare to zip your lip or be pulled into HR. POOR management.

    I worked at Mary Washington Healthcare

    Pros

    Good pay, okay benefits, flexible scheduling. Good teamwork in some units.

    Cons

    Beware of starting a job here. Note the date of this review. Management has no moral courage. Nurses are getting written up for ridiculous reasons that have nothing to do with quality of care or how well you take care of your patients. The CNO is a joke. They want to cut costs everywhere except in upper management/executives. I hope they get bought out. iCare standards are ridiculous when they expect you to perform like a robot. I got sick of hearing, "It is what it is." If something is making your staff unhappy, then fix it! ICU's nurses are frequently tripled and the only reason the patients get reasonable care is that nurses stick together as a team. Management doesn't care. It's common to hear, "We are working on that," and nothing ever happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so punitive with your nursing staff. You have seasoned staff that don't deserve to be punished for piddly things. Get managers in there who know what they are doing. Value the staff that you have and stop looking for reasons to come down on them. HR is not responsible for dealing with your staff. Managers need to take initiative to fix things and act like managers.

    I worked at Mary Washington Healthcare

    Pros

    None. I found that out during my first week. The place was only a stepping stone.

    Cons

    Everything. Until management is replaced (since the current management has an attitude of "Well it is what it is") nothing will change. HR is a joke. I saw that during my orientation. Management and HR play by their own rules. They habitually violate HIPAA on their own employees to gain information to write you up to fire you. Employee Health and Medical Arts Pharmacy both violated my privacy rights. The Radiology Dept is a total disaster. 1 or 2 transporters to service 5-6 modalities! Management is disrespectful, demeaning, and belittling to staff and they don't care who they do this in front of - other employees and patients. This place is the perfect example of how NOT to run a hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until you take the suggestions and solutions to your problems and get rid of your "It is what it is" attitude, nothing will change. You will continue to have a revolving door of employees. Respect your staff. Don't dish out what you can't take in return.

    I worked at Mary Washington Healthcare part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They had pretty good benefits and once I finished high school they immediately made me .5 status which gave me benefits, including tuition reimbursement. After the first semester they actually paid the tuition up front and as long as I got at least a C in the course it was completely paid for. They also worked with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Steady went down hill. The turnover at the upper management positions was incredible. Sometimes they had absolutely no idea what was actually going on. They play a lot of favorites and there are a lot of relatives that have each others back. Sometimes they would complain because I stayed an extra five minutes on my break. But some people that were related to the managers would take their thirty minute breaks and then come back for a little then leave the hospital to go play the lottery. When I went to complain about that the would say don't be a snitch. But it was those exact people leaving to play the lottery that would be telling on me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and treat all your employees equally. If the job description says that you must be able to lift forty pounds and you can't lift it you shouldn't be working their. And stop letting certain people be lazy while others work extremely hard for zero recognition.
