    I worked at HCA International full-time

    Pros

    Each of the hospitals and support offices are filled with great people who are often truly dedicated to their work and profession and provide a real wealth of knowledge. The ability to move between different hospitals and progress in your career with the support of some great mid-level managers is brilliant.

    Cons

    The head office is obsessed with money and controlling the independence of the hospitals to the detriment of the facilities and their staff. It often makes ill informed judgements which then have a direct impact on the staff irrespective of how the senior managers at each hospital feel. There is a high turnover of staff because there are so many loops to jump through to get anything done - so much politics its painful. The goal posts seem to change so often its hard to keep up! Almost no structured development is in place, especially for non-clinical staff.

    Advice to Management

    I would say the senior managers at the hospitals should be more willing to stand up and do things that benefit their hospitals, irrespective of the whims of senior managers at the head office. Head office should leave the hospitals to do what they do best and provide the excellent services they can and do and just provide the support services to them they are meant to do instead of constantly interfering.

    I worked at HCA International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Location, remuneration OK. Good investment in medical equipment. Has great reputation which looks god on CV. Can't think of anything else good say

    Cons

    Corporate office completely out of touch with reality. Hugely bloated and useless administration which means less resource available at the front line where it is really needed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being dictated to by head office. Get out and walk around and think about what you are supposed to be about - delivering healthcare.

    Benefits are amazing, people who work there are lovely. it gets busy but no two days are the same which makes it enjoyable

    salary could be a bit better. HR is all over the place. dont know why they cant keep anyone there.

    Advice to Management

    perhaps pay a bit more attention to who you are recruiting not just picking anyone because you need to fill a space. get the right person for the job.

    Pros

    Patient care is amazing. The hospitals are truly world class and are cutting edge in terms of medical advancement

    Cons

    The HR dept is v poor, old fashioned and traditional. There has been a new HRD virtually every year, each bringing their own people. No consistency, no people strategy, in efficient c 3 years to put in an HR System even with
    support of lots of contractors. HR have a terrible reputation throughout the business meaning no one understands what good HR looks like. It's a real shame. It's not motivating to work as part of this team.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate your people strategy and demonstrate HCA 's future success is dependent on its people. Therefore respect and invest in your people.

    Pros

    the benefits are good. I worked with some great people

    Cons

    Very process driven, consequently chnage is slow. In some cases, even when presenting important safety/ legal issues, there was no change. Any improvement, no matter how obvious or logical has to go through many steps and often got lost. Moral is low. Nurses are not supported. Very much a blame culture.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to suggestions, complaints and your staff. Nursing is exhausted, stretched thin. Look at the processes in place and how it affects your productivity.
