    Pros

    Physician managed group. So theoretically we can do what we want. The pay is okay. I guess that’s it. Self scheduling

    Cons

    Too many patients. Change in pay structure. Lots of locums. Pushing the limit in terms of work life balance. Dignity admins are idiots.

    Advice to Management

    Compete against kaiser etc

    I worked at Dignity Health full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The fact that Dignity Health is trying to partner up with another Catholic business, is perfect. The history speaks for itself!
    I was a long time employee and enjoyed every moment and helped many people with my special skills.

    Cons

    1. If Dignity health, would listen and take serious, employee suggestions and comments, the company would be ranked Number One, among all hospitals.
    2. When the Sisters sold to Corporate, millions of dollars were spent on, "advertising," involving major sport events and private accommodations for senior management only.
    3. Yearly employee picnics were dissolved, which was absolutely rude and sad, because every CHW hospital in the Sacramento area was invited. It was so fun to meet and mingle with all the dedicated staff, who care and see how they differ in ways, that could be a positive for all work stations, paper flow, patient care, thoughts and ideas to share etc. There was a huge, very delicious barbecue, water park for every employee and their families to play and an absolute fun Bingo. Now, the employees hear, every day how we must cut, we must cut, we must cut, we must cut, we must cut.
    4. The SEIU-UHW union is a racket. They only collect dues money. They do not return phone calls, they do not answer their door bell, they do not return letters or emails and they do not care about any issues, except signing up more members for the Union's personal gain. Such a loss to our hospital fellowship.
    5. Rather than downsize employees, especially the long timers who have served you faithfully for half of their life, you should have used those employees as an example of how wonderful it is to have folks willing to stick with you during the, "hard as well as lean years." One employee was two years away from completing 50 years with Dignity Health and you downsized her, at 48. That, in advertising alone, was worth, all the advertising you could have spent in 100 years. This is exactly what you really need to focus on:
    *Employee worth.
    *Employee comments and suggestions, as they are your everyday eyes and ears.
    *Patient care needs and supplies.
    Listen and give your staff what they need to do their jobs. You would actually save money and time in the end.
    *Re examine your focus. Do you want to be the biggest, or do you want to be the best?

    Advice to Management

    1. Treat your employees like they matter and they will.
    2. Stop the flow of employee turnover. You have lost many, many, many great employees, due to your lack of focus and constant change of management. Management comes and goes, but faithful employees always stay. Wouldn't you save money on training, retraining, more training? Yes, you would.
    3. Hiring, "friends," is not a good idea, when you have qualified staff, waiting in line for the promotion. Guess what staff and their co workers think about their job now?
    4. Stop. Look. Listen. Pay attention to your employees. Listen. Impliment. Allow staff to partner up and help guide you. Aren't you actually partners with your employees?
