    Pros

    Friendly, hardworking and dedicated staff. Four core values of dignity, justice, service and excellence are noble. The hospital's location is in a beautiful part of the state.

    Cons

    Low employee morale,very high turnover and poor management. Every year the corporation takes away more employee benefits and raises are rare unless you are in a union.

    Advice to Management

    There is a lack of leadership. If management put even half the amount of effort into the staff that they put into increasing their patient satisfaction scores, the scores might increase!


  3. overall good company

    Pros

    Great People, they take kindness seriously.

    Cons

    Leadership challenges, not sure whether it wants to be a single system or just a group of hospitals, too many projects being initiated, lack of governance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in better change control, budget management, quicker decision-making.

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Most were really sharp and eager to assist.
    I really believe in the overall mission of the health system. Interaction with the Sister's and understanding what they had accomplished was great.
    Overall compensation was good. Lots of training opportunities and good retirement benefits.

    Cons

    Management has no clue what they are doing. Direction changes and failed implementations are par for the course. The new CIO is clueless on how to run an organization.

    Pros

    The salary was generous. If you're a senior member of the team with the right management, they will pay for training and certification. Easy to get time off when you need it.

    Cons

    No loyalty, Crazy Politics, Very poor IT Management, Poor IT Project Management. The IT organization is highly reactive, rather than proactive. Too many junior level engineers plugging holes, rather than utilizing influence to standardize and improve implementations/optimizations. Most members of IT don't have any long-term vision. Many IT Consultants (Blue Mountain Labs, Datu Health, Local Back Haul) are partially owned by the CIO (Bill Russell), but the CEO (Debra Proctor) allows it based on their personal friendship. Apparently, they have a personal relationship ($$$) that condones unethical behavior. During my tenure, it was very difficult to have challenging conversations even with difficult/challenging people. Accomplishing projects is almost unheard of due to the number of hoops that PM's and IT staff need to jump through to complete their work. The most difficult challenge was replying on junior engineers to accomplish tasks with a certain level of integrity. IT management cares more about project timelines than implementing high-quality solutions. IT Site directors do not make decisions in alignment with any particular IT standard, they simply do what they want for their individual hospital regardless of the long-term inconsistencies that it creates. Overall, it's a very chaotic environment to work for. Unless you're making 175+ per year, it's not worth the time or effort.

    Advice to Management

    I would strongly recommend replacing the CIO and CEO of this organization. While SJHS preaches that they follow a Christian culture, the sisters are no longer in charge of the organization, therefore, the values are no longer catholic based and enforced, they are corporate values, but under very poor leadership.

    Pros

    Great firm to work in with upward and lateral opportunities. Listens to clinical needs and strives to promote excellent patient care.

    Cons

    None. Firm works diligently to maintain great employee benefits during a turbulent time when many firms are greatly reducing benefit packages.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the strategic plan in place. All employees appreciate the forums which help communicate the firms direction to the staff who see working in the department's.
