    Pros

    Excellent company for a small hospital facility to implement revenue cycle management and improve cash flow. Excellent opportunity for company advancement and learning basic PAS skills.
    *Conifer Health Solution / University Health Shreveport basically was not a good match.
    Conifer Health Solution way too advanced and University Health Shreveport too large of a facility and in prehistoric baseline processes.

    Cons

    Lack of HR management and staff turn over. Lack of training assistance to onsite managers to improve revenue management and basic skills. Absolutely a waste of Louisiana Tax Payers monies and a waste of time with no minimum improvement in baseline processes.

    Advice to Management

    Properly train onsite management and apply hands on to support staff by providing the tools needed for process improvements. University Health Shreveport have lost way too many tenured and experienced employees due to the lack of training and fairness of onsite management. The cost outweigh to properly train and retain workers instead of fire employees for a point system that is not fair across the board.

    Pros

    Good working environment, decent pay structure

    Cons

    Always cost-cutting at the expense of employees

    Advice to Management

    If you are concerned with employee turnover you should implement employee friendly policies. Having a food truck a couple of times a year does not make up for not getting a raise because you were sick 5 times in a 12 month period.

    Pros

    Room to grow, many opportunities to advance. Large company with good benefits.

    Cons

    Depending on your career goals, moving up can take time, but it is available to those that make it known that is their ultimate goal.

    Pros

    The staff are wonderful to work with! From housekeeping to RN, they are the glue. The location is desirable and the parking is free.

    Cons

    The management lacks continuity. Policies and procedures are a "cut and paste" from another facility; administration falsely reports infection rates to be zero, and doesn't seem to care about patients, only the share holder's bottom line. RNs typically have 7-8 high acuity patients and the charge nurse always has an assignment that is just as heavy - so they can't help their fellow nurses out.

    Advice to Management

    Patient care is supposed to be what we are about. Cutting corners to save a few pennies, staffing units unsafely, and ignoring staff concerns will eventually lead to more sentinel events than have already happened.

    Pros

    Can't think of anything. They have hospitals everywhere so if I wanted to relocate hopefully I can go to a tenet facility.

    Cons

    Computer system is awful. They buy systems that are out of date and the the least user friendly that most of us have seen including the IT people that come to train us. Yes we know we have a system that is YEARS old!!

    Advice to Management

    You have you're hands in to many pots and cut corners where you should have the best.
