    I have been working at Northwest Community Hospital

    Pros

    Housekeeping services staff are conscientious and truly do a superb job at keeping all areas clean and tidy.

    Cons

    The heart and soul of this formerly warm community hospital have been broken.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less bottom line- more staffing is desperately needed and recognition of the truly exceptional staff. Everyone is just trying to keep their heads above water.

    unhealthy place... horrible management team

    I worked at Northwest Community Hospital

    Pros

    Good co-workers, average benefit package and good neighborhood.

    Cons

    The new management runs this place by the fear. Very inefficient and worse management team; especially, IT. They do not have respect to their employees. Sick of RAT calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why the new IT managers started giving written warnings with stupid reasons to the people who have never had the warning for over 10 years? That was one of the worst experience. Please stop yelling at your employees, big guys. You are no better than the people who work for you.

    I worked at Northwest Community Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It is a job and has a paycheck. One thing you can rely on is the place will never change, if that is your thing.

    Cons

    Management is awful. No leadership. Nurses and PCTs are chopped liver. Awful place to work for. Remember it with goosebumps of horror.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employers are people too.

    I worked at Northwest Community Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Leaving, Leaving, Leaving, Leaving, Leaving

    Cons

    This place is the most toxic, unprofessional and amateurish organization I have ever had the misfortune of being hired at. This sentiment is echoed throughout many departments. When you discover someone else has also worked there, the connection of shared misery is quickly established. With all the RIFs of loyal lifers and 'walk outs' by smart newcomers, there is a buzz out there NCH is a place to be avoided at all costs. Countless employees lodge complaints, and "investigations" are conducted, but the same misguided bozos continue to sink the ship. Don't bother 'going to HR', with their wildly outdated processes and emotionally unstable leadership. Most of the nurses and support staff keep this place afloat, grin and bear it, and try to comfort the patients...but it needs to be taken over. When a medical staffer does something akin to negligence, they are 'written up' a few times, and nothing happens. I would not work here, nor would I receive care here. Consider yourself warned.

    I have been working at Northwest Community Hospital full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I work with some great people.

    Cons

    Lack of leadership; high turnover in several departments; too many new people; lack of strategic vision; work far too many hours; no work/life balance; eliminating too many people so there are too few resources to get the work done; salary does not match the job; too much concentration on EPIC implementation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized and start asking your employees what they need from the leadership team.
