Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Dignity Health full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Large organization with seemingly great opportunities for professional growth. Their mission statements would lead a person to believe that Mother Theresa herself had founded this healthcare system, and if they actually operated even remotely close to their stated values, it would truly be an amazing hospital. Unfortunately, they sacrifice the health of their patients and the careers,health & sanity of their staff on a daily basis, Even working @ CRMC for over a decade doesn't give me the confidence to seek my or my family's healthcare needs here!

Cons

An exceedingly high percentage of promotions are filled from outside the organization. In fact, management will state from the outset that they will only consider outside candidates. This demoralizes staff and removes a lot of incentive for furthering your education & growing in your profession. Pt care is threatened in a hundred ways on a daily basis because of staffing ratios and mgmt decisions. Staff can never have any confidence that their clinical decisions will be backed by administration because they don't have to look far to have already witnessed several of their contemporaries having been thrown under the bus. And if even 1 wheel of that bus should fail to crush that clinician, administration would certainly call them back for another pass over them! Currently, Dignity Health is running an ad campaign titled "Hello Humankindness." This is so far past ironic that it is fully hypocritical at this point! I absolutely want to puke every time I see it.

Advice to Management

Work with your clinical staff. You are abundantly blessed with some amazing physicians, RNs & therapists, but you handicap them so badly every single day that they CAN'T even utilize the most basic standards of care, much less "best practices!" Encourage your staff to continue growing thru additional CEUs & credentialing, and show them you value those efforts by allowing them to compete for higher positions!

    Pros

    Working for helping people's lives is motivating.

    Cons

    They put on a show with human kindness but really they treat their employee miserably, trying not to spend a dime, small space, old equipment/furniture/computers/software, their computer system is outdated with Windows XP and often not working and super slow most of the time. It is frustrating with tons of work to do and an understaffed department. Anyway, I have heard that the CEO made 10 millions a years + 2 millions bonus. I know why they are trying not to spend a dime, that's to put it in their own pocket. Human kindness, they meant human stinginess!

    Advice to Management

    Make sure your employees are also benefiting from the company growth, I know they are making sure that it is benefiting them!

    Pros

    This company's focus is on quality patient care. They strive to get a jump on any new regulatory change.

    Cons

    Often senior leadership is not afforded the opportuity to hire the support resources needed to meet or exceed corporate quality goals. Hence- the company motto "Doing more with less." A very stressful organization to work for.
