    Pros

    Quality Heath care provider, state of the art equipment and facilities, generous PTO policy, promotion opportunities, good communication on a system wide level.

    Cons

    Moral compass of the company seems to be drifting the last 2 years. As with most hospitals, the expectation is to always do more with less resources.

    Pros

    Great patient care. Great staff. Highly rated patient satisfaction and nurses truly care about their patients and families.

    Cons

    Since bought by providence, they are starting to try the hospital more like a business and less about the patients and staff.

    Advice to Management

    Please value the staff that made Swedish a highly reputable hospital. The staff truly care about exceptional patient care.

    Pros

    great environment to work in that provides many learning opportunities in healthcare. I would certainly return to work for them if needed. Great team facilitated lab and room for growth!

    Cons

    typical hospital working environment. I cannot think of many cons at all. I enjoyed where I worked and would recommend this facility to anyone, especially the motivated!

    Advice to Management

    check on employees to make sure they are happy and/or have legitimate complaints that can be taken care of. There is always room to grow from challenges no matter what facility you are in. Again, good experiences for me!

    Pros

    Positive nurse-nurse and nurse-provider relationships, many protocols to guide practice, culture of safety, competitive wages

    Cons

    Healthcare benefits for staff are under negotiation--hopefully will improve, top-heavy management system due to large system (Swedish) within a multi-state system (Providence) setup...although department managers have enormous groups of frontline staff, leading to disconnect between strategic direction and patient care.
