I have been working at Health Management Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Rural Hospital. Pleasnt staff ( well those that Management has not run off yet. Easy to get hired when they are hiring

Cons

working harder with less staff. Taking on more procedures with out the appropiate staffing levels to safely complete . Unable to hire replacement staff for those that leave facility. Informed last week that we will be unable to accrue Vacation time for the next 4 months and there will be no Raises at all this year ( there goes my 1%). Benefits are poor unless you go to an HMA facility. Corprate Management has shown time and time again they truely do not care about the Employees.

Advice to Management

Start caring about your employees and your patient satisfaction scores will go up and so will your compensation form medicare.

    I have been working at Health Management Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Self Scheduling, flexible uniform code.

    Cons

    Low pay, lack of management support and visibility, lack of credible CEU's only provides the basic requirements. Slow ER process of patients, no working system.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be applicable education for the department. Upper management needs to be more visible to be plugged into what works and doesn't work in the department and who is an effective worker and who is just taking up space with very little productivity. Increase pay to be more competitive instead of sending out emails that state you are giving pay equitable raises and then not following thru. You will have an increase in job satisfaction if you do these simple steps and retain your nurses instead of losing employees to all other local hospitals and being short staffed on a day to day basis.

    I worked at Health Management Associates as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice office, 9-5 working hours, staff is friendly and hard working

    Cons

    Sr. management is ineffectual. It was the "old boys network". Many executives got to positions of power doing nothing. They are not leaders. Treat the IT staff like animals, always laying off the good workers and keeping the bottom dwellers. Staff is overworked and underpaid. No clear direction set. A lot of "positioning" by management. As a public company, tried to set corporate governance, but was a joke. No advancement, and became scapegoat to anything gone wrong. No accountability, and only interested in profit and bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the bums and put in resources that embrace change, quality of care and advancement
