    Pros

    Great people who believe in the hospital's mission.

    Cons

    Culture resists change and does not always invest in new technology, specifically in IT.

    Advice to Management

    The "C" level needs to visit and work on the front lines more often. Go to Gemba!

    Pros

    Middle management terrible, upper management worse. They do not care about its employees. High employee turnover, especially nurses. Low pay in all positions compared to surrounding hospitals, possibly because of its Catholic Hospital status.

    Cons

    I like the employees and patients, however, there's just no money in it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat, and pay, your employees better !!!

    Pros

    The benefits were very good and a person working 32 hours a week had benefits.

    Cons

    Working with the nurses was terrible. The management did not care about the safety of the department when we had hostile patients. Privacy of the patients is none.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worring about the bottom line if you are a non-profit organization.

  10. Remember the Mission of Saint Francis

    Pros

    As an instution, I am proud to be in healthcare and I think there are some great dedicated health professionals who work here. The new mission statement of the hospital is the biggest reason I am proud to work here

    Cons

    Very little profesionnal growth opportunities. My department does not promote from within but hires from the outside for management positions.

    Advice to Management

    Take special attention and care of existing employees and provide a mentoring environment for them to grow
