I worked at Halifax Health Medical Center full-time

Pros

Halifax Health is located in the most famous Daytona Beach, FL with only a n few blocks from the beautiful ocean, one block to the Daytona International Airport, nearby local eateries and shopping malls, and just an arms through to larger Orlando, Jacksonville, and other metropolitan cities. Halifax recently completed a new 10 Tower patient care high-rise facility, the France Tower. This facility is one of the largest in the state as a 944-bed hospital. The Emergency Department is the largest in the State of Florida with 107 private treatment rooms in a 89,000 square feet of modern space.

Cons

Health system continues to grow into a 'mature' health system, however, continues to struggle with leadership direction, and with the continued shortage of nursing, patient care can be a challenge at times, although this is happening at most hospitals as well.

    Pros

    Some of the best medical professionals in Central Florida.

    Cons

    It seems as though only employees with a professional background or license (i.e. nurses) are the only people that can advance or "grow" within the company.


  2. "No good deed goes unpunished."

    I have been working at Halifax Health Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to move up, always work to do. Never bored.

    Cons

    70% of the workforce is lazy or incompetent. 30% of workforce cleans up after the 70%, and gets burnt out. Long time employees don't care anymore, just waiting to retire. One manager for a large area, in particular for sure. Administration has no pulse on the true issues.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a little more, and it'll pay off. You get valuable employees that are efficient. If they are not, let them go. Stop keeping these people employed!

    Find a way, not electronically, to survey your employees to get the true results. They are afraid to answer honestly because of the computer. Sounds ridiculous, but it's true. Then let go of poor management of many of your departments and start over.

    We are a unique organization, so think outside the box. Include employees in the hiring process of management? Listen to the majority's needs. Stop looking to managers to get the answers- they only care about CYA. Get them from your little guys.
