    I worked at Southern Regional Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Busy, easy to keep clinical skills sharp

    Cons

    Nepotism and discrimination are rife. Starting with the CEO people are promoted way above their ability base don who they know. Evaluations are unfair. This is a place with so much promise but awful administration hat tolerates encourages cliquish behavior

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a real management team. Someone should not be in upper management because they have been around since dirt, or are personal friends and gossip buddies of the CEO. Someone should not be the CEO because of longevity or because they have a board made up of personal cronies, drinking buddies.

    Pros

    Great community backed hospital south of Atlanta with a focus not only on patient care, but the entire patient family experience.

    Cons

    Struggled financially in the same manner as all community based hospitals adapting to the changes in healthcare as mandated by the federal and state governments, but recent strategic planning along with community support has created an upward trend.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep all staff engaged and focused on the overall vision.

    Pros

    The Emory Healthcare relationship is new, but the hospital is starting to benefit in many ways. Access to nursing educational programs, protocols, and best practices from Emory is enhancing quality.

    Cons

    Like many hospitals, they have struggled a little financially but Clayton County residents recently voted to support the hospital and provide funds to offset indigent care. This should help the hospital recover and be stronger long term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The partnership with Emory Healthcare was a smart move. They are an amazing organization with so much expertise; I would like SRMC to have access to more of their educational programs.

    Pros

    One of the friendliest places I have worked. I have ample opportunity to expand my capabilities. Co-workers are easy to get along with and are supportive.

    Cons

    Healthcare everywhere is a challenge. Streamlining processes is challenging but pays off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain transparent and open regarding the challenges we face. Would like to see more positive publicity about SRMC from outside the organization.

    Former Employee - Insurance Claims Billing

    I worked at Southern Regional Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There isn't much good to say about this hospital.

    Cons

    Working in the patients accounts business office was OK until the new director was hired. He does not know what he is doing and he does not try to help anyone. He does not like the way we are doing our jobs so he wants us to change. We changed the way we do our jobs and a lot of billing errors were made. He says it is our fault, but he caused it. Other employees are leaving too because they do not like working for him.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Changes need to be made in the billing office.
