I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Fairly decent benefits and a consistent paycheck--that's about it.

Cons

Toxic work environment, poor management, little regard for employees. Constantly under review by state and federal regulatory agencies. Despite 10 different CEOs over a period of just four years at the Kansas City facility, UHS get can't seem to get it right. CMS has placed them on a ninety day decertification track more than once.

Advice to Management

Get a clue UHS, either put some serious resources behind your Kansas City facility or close it. Your reputation in the behavioral health community is laughable.

    I have been working at Universal Health Services full-time

    Pros

    Competitive salary. The number of health care professionals (vs finance professionals) at the corporate office is growing, which is an attempt to redirect the focus of the company on the importance of population health management rather than solely hospital operations management.

    Cons

    The company is short-sighted on profits and willing to compromise care to achieve the needs of Wall Street. Corporate management has deferred to the expertise of physicians practicing within the hospitals, rather than an interdisciplinary approach to patient care, which is leading to significant profit wasting, conflict with the supporting staff and low employee morale. Values are merely listed on the employee brochure, but are not woven into the culture or expectations of employees. The HR focus is disproportionately in favor of recruitment rather than retention and employee development. Turnover amongst the C-suite executives at the hospitals as well as at the corporate office create much disruption to the success of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Support quality care initiatives focused on improving health outcomes and the money will follow - we no longer live in 1975, and the business model should evolve accordingly.

    I worked at Universal Health Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was a pleasure getting venders and their clients equipment needed to get patients on the road to recovery. It was a great feeling to see the patients and their families smile after you have brought them the latest technology for improvement.

    Cons

    Long hours at times while on call and long mileage trips in all kinds of weather, but that's the price to pay when in the life saving business.

    Advice to Management

    More facilities Statewide to have more adequate coverage to increase proficiency.
