I worked at Upper Chesapeake Health full-time (More than 10 years)
Best mentorship. Grow their employees within. Best leadership. CEO always keeps employees informed of all that is happening current and future so no surprises. very family oriented and like a second family. will always be indebted to and love my first real career family!! VP of HR is the best leader and stays involved right beside CEO. Patient and Family first!! Look thru patients eyes as if we or our family is laying there bc most likely it's bound to happen there! Will always go back if opportunity/need approaches! They take very good care of their employees!!! Top notch!
Could have more support for alternative and holistic modalities for team and patients as that seems to be first budget cut.
Advice to Management
C Suite Senior Leadership should have more trust in middle management and know they are in the position as experts and allow more autonomy and have their back more when it comes to teams and instead of throwing them under the bus due to not following up or having an answer on a long communicated issues be transparent and honest and say your manager has brought this up several several times however this isn't an easy fix... so that team doesn't feel like they are not being listened to... it then makes manager looks bad not trusted and as if they never communicated the issue! Ensure C suite Senior Leadership are required to have continuing training and are also held accountable to following policy and procedures and standards. Not to be mean but if someone has to have a mtg before their mtg then perhaps more prep shld happen like rounding to know tm names, real issues on units if that untrusting, and overall knowledge of the floors and processes and have a clear understanding of how things work so that finances are being put to good use and cuts are not made where the work is really being done at 200%. Again - no disrespect just constructive criticism as this is the best place and the best teams and managers and directors and VPs and CEO and support staff anyone cld ask for in a place to work!!! Could never have anything bad to say!!!! A++++++++++++++
I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Upper Chesapeake Health (Belcamp, MD) in June 2014.
Grilled by a bunch of people with dated mindsets that are terrified off change, I was paid to deliver printed service. I did that and the manager was scared i was going to take his job.
