    Pros

    It's been enjoyable in the past, as I've been at RWMC for a long time, and I am comfortable here. People are pretty welcoming, for the most part.

    Cons

    Lately, the hospital has struggled on many levels. No raises for the past 3 years, no money for appropriate training, facility is deteriorating. Lots of internal political turmoil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs some solid, strong leadership. This has developed into a huge and potentially fatal problem for this organization.

    I have been working at Regional West Medical Center part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Regional 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Streamline 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.

    Pros

    Salary 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.

    Cons

    Management 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 ManagementAdvice

    Review CIO's performance
    Hold townhall type meetings to engage staff

    Cons

    Pay is lower than most hospitals. They believe they are the only jobs in scottsbluff and therefore can pay less

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are not the only hospital. So many nurses go to school locally but everyone leaves account the low pay

    I worked at Regional West Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Great 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.

    Cons

    This 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 ManagementAdvice

    Invest 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.
