    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time

    Pros

    CTCA used to be all about the patient. They went above and beyond to make the patient feel comfortable and that they had a sayin their treatment. The culture was great!

    Cons

    The culture has changed since the current CEO came on board. With all the layoffs and changes it feels like everyone is on pins and needles.

    Advice to Management

    Before laying off a stakeholder check for another position within the company that that stakeholder may be able to fill.

    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time

    Pros

    Passionate and empowered stakeholders, access to complementary and alternative medicine unique to CTCA team, excellent communication, all members of the team approachable, offers a lot of services under one roof making it easier to coordinate care in all facets, harbors professional growth

    Cons

    Increased demands in the setting of a crumbling infrastructure. Not a place to be in the long term. High level of stress and anxiety. Cooporate demands that did not take into account time taken to coordinate patient care and document in the medical record. Emphasis shifted to quantity of patients seen instead of the quality of consultation. Not sustainable. Not supportive of proper work/life balance.

    Pros

    When you are connected to your work, you have the opportunity to see it through to action. The hospital seriously cares about patients, their experience, and their hope.

    Cons

    Top heavy. The front line workers are amazing.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your leaders believe in what they are doing, because your front line surely does.

    "Great for some things"

    I worked at Cancer Treatment Centers of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Has the bones of an innovative and ahead of its time organization

    Cons

    Costs have forced management to change nearly everything about the organization that was progressive and groundbreaking. Integrative medicine is still a presence, but has been diluted down - less employees retained, like an afterthought. New managment does not appear to value this innovation as much as previous management

    Advice to Management

    Integrative medicine is the difference maker for this hospital for many, many of its patients.
