    A great progressive place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Silver Spring, MD

    ProsMedStar Health is a leader in Healthcare in the Washington-Baltimore Region. The company is clinically innovative and working hard to move from "Good to Great." You should be proud to work for MedStar as it is very progressive and will be a surviver and leader in the years to come as healthcare evolves.

    ConsMedStar has grown through acquisition and as such the culture is still evolving. There is tension between the desire to have a single integrated corporate culture and at the same time to maintain autonomy between the operating units.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more assertive in developing an integrated organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
