Pros

Legacy Health has a laudable mission, many dedicated and highly skilled professionals, and a desire to do the right thing in the community. Amazing work happens within the hospital walls every day. The quality of medical care and human caring is high.

Cons

Something is off balance about the system's culture. Perhaps it is the result of trying to knit together six hospitals that, in some senses, compete against each other for limited resources. Yet all the hospitals and system office staff are supposed to work together as one unified family. The organization has not yet found a way to make it work. The culture and leadership can be excellent at the hospital level, however, so your job satisfaction can really depend on the site you work.

Advice to Management

Be more nimble. Be better at recognizing your talent and giving talented employees new opportunities and appropriate pay. Take at look at your executives: Do they have the leadership skills the system needs? Seek ideas and input from your front-line workers. Take a voluntary pay cut when you are involved in a RIF.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, interesting projects, friendly work atmosphere. Legacy really does care about the community and provides more than it's share of uninsured/charity care.

    Cons

    Support for career development is non-existent. Little opportunity for advancement. Training of IT personnel and users of the system is done at initial implementation, but little if any training in subsequent years or after system upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people instead of consultants. Training is woefully inadequate, is mostly on-the-job or by the person leaving the position. Workflows and business processes are inefficient.
