    Pros

    They will write off what insurance doesn't pay if you are admitted at one of their hospitals.

    Cons

    CHS leased our previously non-profit hospital and drove it into the ground. In the 4 years since they took over there has been a mass exodus because of the poor treatment of employees. They have made it difficult to obtain the supplies necessary to do your job properly and have laid off staff and cut hours and for these reasons, our reputation in the community has suffered.

    I have been working at Community Health Systems full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Business office has went from 6 hospitals to over 40 in three years. This rapid growth has resulted in a dynamic (versus static) environment. Positive aspect is this provides advancement opportunities in newer departments. ( Coordinator to Supervisor in one year)
    You can make a difference.
    I believe in our mission, part of which is providing healthcare in less populated areas.
    Your talents will be utilized and new ones developed.
    Benefits / Flex Scheduling/Experience

    Cons

    Policies and procedures are developed/ revised frequently. It can be challenging to adapt to the constant changes and latest "highest priority" as backlog of work load drives priority.
    Must be vigilant in establishing boundaries, expectations and rules as staff struggle with adhering to basic rules expected in a professional environment (time, attendance, policies, production, etc.).
    Company Facing Challenges of Hard Economic Times.
     While title is a Supervisor, it is comparable to a Manager level in my opinion (20 staff, Facility Meeting Prep, Analysis of Data, HR, etc)

    Advice to Management

    Join me in praying daily for the healing and success of our Company.
