    top heavy

    Non-clinical (Current Employee)
    Scottsbluff, NE

    ProsRegional West is the largest employer in the area with many long-term, loyal employees. Overall a good place to work but employee morale has been slipping the past year or so.

    ConsThe organization appears top heavy with several more VPs than is necessary. Management fills their days with meetings yet nothing ever seems to be accomplished. Caters to physicians at the expense of the rest of the organization.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStreamline at the top and let managers manage without multiple meetings every day. Think outside the box with job-sharing and other creative ways to get and keep both clinical and non-clinical talent.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    CIO is not qualified for the position

    Information Systems (Current Employee)
    Scottsbluff, NE

    ProsSalary is decent for the location. However, pay raises are based on cost of living and not employee performance. Annual reviews are a waste of time.

    ConsManagement does nothing to maintain current employees-all the focus is on Physician recruitment and retainment.

    CIO focuses solely on meeting dates and not on patient safety or employee needs. CIO is not engaged with the IT department and meets only quarterly with staff. Feedback is not encouraged, rather it is disregarded.

    Project management is lacking and often focused on the result without planning on the front end.

    IT staff is hourly versus salaried

    Advice to Senior ManagementReview CIO's performance
    Hold townhall type meetings to engage staff

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Only health service in the local area

    Middle Management (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat facility with similar specialized care to larger organizations. Some really great co-workers that are passionate about their job and the patients. The pay is monitored through market analysis and is good for the region.

    ConsThis organization does not have a strong, long lasting culture. The idea of company culture is foreign to this organization. They change directions every couple of years. It seems that they invest in the short term not the long term. This has been detrimental and a public relations nightmare. It is stressful on the employees, patients, physicians and most of the middle management because no one is focusing or investing in fixing the issues just using band-aids as short term fixes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in a solid culture, buy-in, employee engagement, and physician engagement. Update training models and hold your middle management accountable for issues. Invest in middle management and allow for communication up and down. Clean house of the supervisors, managers, directors, VP's that are not supporting the organization and the mission, vision, and values of the organization.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
