    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Birmingham, AL

    I worked at St. Vincent Health System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The fact that you are taking care of the community be it friends, family or any of God's children is quite remarkable.

    Cons

    The system changed to paperless and heavy computer adherence applied with the frequent system failure, upgrades, equipment malfunction, and inconvenience of placement has dislodged any humanity to nursing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have backup 100%. Duty to contact "IT"'is this a logical nursing duty? When equipment failure, ICON disappearance, is taking away from patient attendance. Lack of communication from nursing desk to staff when assistance is required or attention is needed in other areas. Call system is obsolete and beepers are not in use when access to paging is located in one computer of the unit secretary location. Upgrade to a user friendly charting app. Upgrade to minimize frequent logging into multiple computers.

    Great learning experience.

    I have been working at St. Vincent Health System

    Pros

    Have the opportunity to work at any of the four hospital in the health system. Expands the learning experience. Great colleagues are friendly. The only hospitals in Arkansas to be designated as Magnet and Pathways to Excellence. Safety is the new project for the health system to focus on any and all safety issue or concerns that are identified within the system.

    Cons

    At times overtime could be available for individuals who want to work due to illness, vacation, or nurses leaving. Promotion within the health system is a struggle as have a set way within which to advance even if have degrees to back up the desire position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaders need to take an indepth look at individuals who manage areas of the facilities from top to bottom. Leaders need to see who is providing a positive outlook to the staff that is working for manager. Positive and cheerful outlook will bring the same outlook to the staff working under that manager. This staff member has seen where this is not happening and staff come in and are not smiling or laughing. If happy, upbeat personality is not projected to the patient in the bed, how is the patient suppose to get feeling better when laughter is the best medicine.

    Please continue to value your associates.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my opinion they should offer better incentives for their employees and basically treat them better.

    Good learning experience

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Little Rock, AR

    I worked at St. Vincent Health System full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Compensation was standard. The hospital in general was run well.

    Cons

    Culture was rather "old"- very traditional, use of Mr. and Mrs. to address superiors. I prefer to not work for an organization that evaluates me partly based on if I lead prayer at meetings... The mission is quite strong here, even if to a fault.

    Pros

    Faith-based mission with patient centered clinicians...perhaps the best in the city.

    Cons

    No guiding strategy. Unable to navigate the rapid changing landscape of health care. Unable to compete with the strong strategy and brand of IU Health and unable to compete with integrated delivery systems of Community.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits and perks for associates, nice people to work with, was close to home, nice faith centered company to work for.

    Cons

    Poor management by Administration, played favorites when it came to hiring staff, tended to hire "pretty" women, paid unequally. Employment fraud occurred when a new R.D. was brought on staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take complaints through the employee concern hot line seriously
