Pros

Part of Duke University Health System, so super benefits. Financially challenged with FTE's not approved unless a patient care/safety issue, so plenty of opportunities for people in support roles to take on additional responsibility and puff up the resume. On-site cafeteria, coffee shop and gift shop.

Cons

Politics, politics, politics! It takes an Act of Congress to get anything done. So many approval levels to do something as simple as replace a broken chair. Nurses receive disproportionate praise here. Granted the ones I knew and worked with were phenomenal people, but there are many other jobs critical to making the hospital successful. Turnover was a problem and rumored to have the highest turnover rate in the Duke system. Some departments turned over completely every few years and others couldn't keep someone in the department manager position. The hospital is located in a depressed area reportedly nestled against gang territory. I don't know how true that is, but I was accosted several times in the parking lot in broad daylight by mentally altered people looking for the emergency room or begging for change.

Advice to Management

Invest in the facility. Patient care areas are nice. Employee workspaces are not.

    I worked at Duke Regional Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It is a smaller hospital and is less demanding. People are close knit.

    Cons

    Terrible ED management, needs drastic change. Manager is lazy. Nepotism is practiced. They promote the same people in their click and continue to have the same problems.

    Advice to Management

    Get a new manager & supervisors. HR seriously needs to address the "Durham Reg" staff vs "Duke" staff turf issue(s).
