    Pros

    Can move from clinic to clinic
    Good patient care.
    Most other employees are easy to work with.
    Mostly day hours.

    Cons

    Management not willing to share information that may influence your job. Not a real cooperative atmosphere. People who have been there for a long time are unwilling to change, even if it would benefit patients or even themselves. Technology is looked at with some suspicion at times.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to trust your workers It's also in their interest for Group Health Cooperative to succeed. Micromanagement only interferes with the final product.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Clinic hours of Monday thru Friday
    Insurance is not costly, but you get in quality what you pay for
    Primary Care Physician structure is a good concept
    Hiring a more diverse workforce, however, no internal training for a diverse workforce or how to deal with a diverse patient base.

    Cons

    Dated equipment
    High potential for layoffs due to financial standing.
    New equipment is not always tested by national guidelines
    Since clinics are not part of Joint Commission they fall under the radar for standard processes
    Not all patient records or studies scanned into electronic system.
    Patient care in wealthier areas is better than low income areas
    Union and administration in frequent conflict which affects patient care, this resulted in nonunion staff organizing last year
    Some areas lack standard process meeting national guidelines
    Prefer a younger workforce. Frequent comments---someone is too old, too young, too new.
    Can take up to 3 to 4 weeks for an appointment, an acceptable standard

    Advice to Management

    It is less costly to reduce the hours of employees and retain services internally, than to form costly partnerships. In some cases it costing 3 times the internal cost. In time it will force you to reduce outside diagnostic testing which affect patient care, but does create profits.

    Less costly to rent space within hospitals, than to build clinics. Brick and motor is expensive.

    Hard to believe clinics are being closed or reduced services to low income communities in order to build clinics in higher wealth communities while having poor financial ratings.

    Senior management should consider giving up their bonuses if the company has a poor financial standing.

    There is no one on GHC Board who has a financial background.
