    I worked at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    People that work there are overall good hardworking people

    Cons

    The owner consistently changes CEO every two years and with that leadership changes. This does not allow changes made to take roots because the goals/policies consistently change. Department leaders work hard, but it is never enough

    Advice to Management

    Advice to owner Dr.Cha : Stop blaming the CEO’s , it is your lack leadership and appreciation that has not allowed this hospital to flourish . You strive to make this hospital cater primarily to the Korean community while not appreciating those the other communities that utilize the hospital . If you want this hospital to be upscale start by removing yourself from the organization

    I worked at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dedicated front line clinical staff

    Cons

    - Executive leadership at hospital level is not afraid to scream at you
    - Executive leadership at the corporate level has no experience in healthcare; why hire a VP of corporate marketing / communications who has never worked in healthcare? Why hire a corporate CEO who has never stepped foot in a US hospital? Nepotism should not be a job qualifier.
    - Communication from corporate leadership & hospital leadership to hospital employees or contracted vendors/consultants is awful
    - Self interest in the C-Suite is leading to mismanagement and failure
    - Chief Administrative Officer is a Neuro Surgeon who has zero experience in healthcare administration or leadership roles
    - Chief Operating Officer is the son of the owner of the company and does not understand hospital throughput

    Advice to Management

    There are few individuals at the hospital who know what they are doing. Stop firing them before you are left with incompetent leaders.

    I worked at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many opportunities to improve. The hospital has some great staff who are thirsty for new knowledge.

    Cons

    Management folks from nursing to education to C-suite are all incompetent. They are either older and out of touch or younger and clueless.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the mess. Start with your nursing directors, then safety and quality, then education, and lastly HR.

    Pros

    OR Staff is great ok benefits loved what I did there made a lot of positive changes I hope one day the get the right admin there that supports and cares about staff members who are game changers as well as regular staff.

    Cons

    Not appreciated , jealousy lots of backstabbing HR is the worst I ever experienced in my 20 plus years of service no support! Administration is in disarray firing all admin directors only to make managers directors for less money! They will do anything and say anything to get rid of you.

    Advice to Management

    They have no credibility and they lie!

    I worked at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly and knowledgeable co-workers who believes in teamwork, generous with PTO, provides good medical benefits, provides uniform unlike other hospitals.

    Cons

    Directors and manager doesn't know how to run their units properly. HR and union are non existent when you file grievance which leaves you defending own yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Your mission statement is "To provide quality care with compassion and respect", but with the way your managers and directors are running the show, it is a total failure. Ever wonder why Chalet sub-acute failed their DHS survey 3x?
