I have been working at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Friendly coworkers--although certain professionals (RN's especially) seem to be quite disgruntled frequently. Private hospital (read: independent)--doesn't HAVE to function like a big hospital bureaucracy. Hospital-wide focus upon improving culture and team orientation. Small-medium sized hospital providing needed care to surrounding communities, trying to find its niche.

Cons

Private hospital (works both ways). Antiquated systems, behind the times w/technology. Potential trouble for recruitment. Business strategy seems to have no clear vision. Feels as though the focus can be too much upon expansion, referrals, costs, etc.--instead of always focusing upon the one thing a hospital should--quality care. Finally--not all departments seem to function together cohesively, being quite separatist at times.

Advice to Management

Continue to focus upon improving culture. Update technologies and your overarching business systems and department protocols. Operations don't need to be so robotic. Having systems in place is necessary, but not at the risk of alienating employees and being inefficient. Be willing to ask your employees for input upon how to better improve the ways things operate--they'll surprise you more than you think. Don't always assume you're the smartest person in the room, or in this instance--building.
