    I have been working at Sequoia Hospital full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    With any luck they will be taken over by Sutter.

    Cons

    Leadership has been on a steep decline. New COO implements the most nonsensical projects I have ever experienced. They all fail. Morale is at an all time low, people are fleeing. Too much time spend on trying to NOT accommodate patients on COVERED CALIFORNIA,, rather than how to accommodate them in this new healthcare environment. If I hear BOUTIQUE HOSPITAL one more time I will lose my mind. It's a hospital for goodness sake!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Forget the whole "hellohumankindness" and get back to basics. Providing healthcare. Time to retool the Senior Leadership OPS Team.

    Not many opportunities for advancement due to small size of organization.

    Better understand overhead costs so that cost reduction isn't just eliminating FTEs. Need to better align with physicians and adjust fee schedule to be competitive in the market.

    I have been working at Sequoia Hospital

    Pros

    This hospital has a very family-like environment because most people have worked here for so long that they've known each other for years.

    Cons

    One downside right now is the construction, which has caused the cafeteria to temporarily shut down, but this will all improve when the hospital has been renovated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop ignoring the people who aren't doing their jobs well and take action to either help them improve or find another job.
