    I have been working at HCA Healthcare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very Supportive of residents in all domains - education, clinical training, diverse experiences, resident wellness and support services, new GME buildings with swanky call rooms, STOCKED fridges and food items, supportive senior clinical faculty committed to education and training GREAT Benefits

    Cons

    for-profit healthcare, which can be problematic with patient care in regards to THE #1 THING TO KNOW ABOUT A PATIENT - what insurance do they have? Residents trying to adhere to the insurance-driven policy with respect to which consultant to call or which hospital group they get admitted to is very frustrating and is not common practice in academic medicine If you are a new graduate interested in PSLF Program for debt forgiveness, you do NOT qualify by default of your employment at an HCA facility - unlike academic medical centers, which are most often tax-exempt institutions

    Advice to Management

    Give the new residents a run-down in orientation week about the significance of insurance and how this dictates which providers (the hospital group/consultant) a patient will have - so that we can understand those nuances BEFORE getting thrown to the wolves not knowing anything related to this (because all prior education/training was within an academic medical center) Also, there needs to be SIGNIFICANT improvement in interdisciplinary communication - the default is to just "write the recommendations in the note" hoping the primary team will read it and enact those recommendations, or (even worse) how the providers on consulting services will just put in whatever orders they want for a patient instead of speaking directly to primary and facilitating management decisions with EFFECTIVE INTERDISCIPLINARY COMMUNICATION
