    Pros

    Starting to upgrade out worn out machines and portable equipment.

    Cons

    Female coworkers act like they are in High School yet. There are clicks, one with management and one without. Favortism and nepotism are huge factors when a position opens.

    I have been working at Ephrata Community Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits.
    Some good people.

    Cons

    Management.
    Human resources.
    No communications.
    Hostile.
    Low pay.
    No work/life balance.

    Departments laid off with very little to no notice makes everyone nervous as Wellspan already laid off some paramedics already in York. And now an EMS department has been disbanded.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to your employees from all levels. Don't have separate meetings for an entire department. "Oh some people can't make it to the meeting?? Well they'll find out". No let them have a say.

    Pros

    The people are great, Very friendly / caring

    Cons

    Recently merged with Wellspan Health. Values do not match. Wellspan is much more the Big Corporate attitude and it is infecting Ephrata.

    Advice to Management

    Ephrata Management needs to reverse the infection to instead make Wellspan a friendly / caring place to work.

    I worked at Ephrata Community Hospital full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best parts of working for Ephrata Hospital are the compassionate care givers working for the hospital. Some people give everything. These people can make things happen for great patient care.

    Cons

    Some people came there to be comfortable. They have stayed too long. Therefore everything returns to way it use to be. They are non engaged especially after 6:00 PM Weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Work with best practices and work with credentialed people. Respect the people who actually are hands on managers.
