    I worked at FHN part-time

    Pros

    Minimum competition from other health systems in the Freeport area.

    Cons

    Poor management at many levels. Truly a third class medical facility in all aspects. Penny wise and dollar foolish. Many of the "old guard management" hold outdated values that cause good people to leave and place the entire company in jeopardy. Way too slow (and too cheap) to pick up on new technology and modern practices. The competent people leave and mostly incompetent people remain. A few very incompetent doctors remain on staff in key positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop nickle and diming your employees. You think you have a captive audience, but major employer markets exist within an hours drive. You lose good employees due to incompetent managers. Some. FHN is unlikely to survive on its own so you would be smart to sell the company to a team who can run it more in tune with modetn healthcare practices.

    Pros

    Busy, pleasant atmosphere with plenty of daily variety in the workload to keep the day interesting. Lots of motivation in management to keep a pleasant environment for employees and patients.

    Cons

    Not much except it was a small town, and difficult to break in to the factions that already existed over lifetimes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    A very patient centered organization focusing on developing well educated and empowered staff to provide quality care. Strong leadership and camaraderie across all levels.

    Cons

    Non-profit struggling with the financial sustainability despite the lack of funding from state. Rural setting hard to attract those with professional clinical strengths for their vision of patient care.

    Advice to Management

    Believe in yourself and your mission. Look toward more critical partnerships and consider motivating the city to grow its financial health of the community to support health care expansion.
