Primary focus is to the patient, community with the employee as a close third.
With reimbursement cuts to hospitals and physicians the employee need to take on additional responsibility and there is not enough time in the day to complete everything
Advice to Management
Keep up the great job you are currently doing. You are taking the hospital in the right direction so it will remain a community hospital without being gobbled up by the 2 big networks in Pittsburgh.
I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at St. Clair Health (Pittsburgh, PA) in September 2015.
It took about four weeks from application to interview. I met with an "employment specialist" first which was pretty intimidating. She seemed to have a premeditated question and answer list for everything. It was pretty monotone, which made it difficult to evaluated how I was doing. I then met with the nurse manager and went through the questions all over again. It took about two hours total. I felt that I had gotten along great with the manager and things were really looking promising. Unfortunately, I was told to wait about two weeks, and didn't hear back.
