    Pros

    A hidden gem among an outcropping of smaller hospices. Very selective about hiring the "best of the best". No 'On Call' required ! Very manageable case load, feel good about providing being able to provide quality care, Excellent supportive upper management and nurse supervisor aka DPCS. No heavy laptop to lug, CM's use lightweight I Pad.

    Cons

    Guess I'd call it "growing pains", hiring staff to keep up with admission and pt's. Word must be getting out and providing such excellent care to our families/clients is paying off.

    Advice to Management

    Add sign on bonus to attract more candidates. Shorten EMR routine assessment

    Pros

    Its great that Silverado actually replies to some of the reviews

    Cons

    Where there's smoke, there's fire.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't do something about your culture and how Management handles its employees, you might not have many good employees to hire in the future. Word gets out fast is all I have to say.

    Pros

    Good benefits. No surprise drug testing (pro or con?) I'd say about 4 amazing workers. If you like cliques this is the ideal place

    Cons

    Immature coworkers, uncaring administration, only in for the money, very dirty place, not paid enough for the amount of work, unprofessional and pushover admin. New management looks promising but always disappoints in the long run. They dont give raises, you can work here 4 years and just get 20 cents. Just stay away, no good comes from working with adults that have a high school mentality. Very fake attitudes especially from the so called "lead" if you aren't part of a clique be prepared to have everyone ignore you when you need assistance.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your staff. Don't just stay locked up in your offices. Don't talk to staff about clients families.

    Pros

    Can be fun, rewarding and educational

    Cons

    Gross misuse of the "love is greater than fear" motto. Very fake at times, not who they say they are culturaly and as a company.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership members work hard and should be rewarded for it, not just the Administrator and Marketing.

    Jun 29, 2015Vice President of Human Resources

    We are very proud of our operating philosophy of LOVE is greater than fear. Coming from love is rarely ever easy and it a philosophy that we certainly attempt to put into practice everyday.
