    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Training at the Tennessee home office is exceptional. HCA stands by their "pick up the phone and call anyone within the HCA network" to optimize getting things done well. They help to develop some of the best employees to be found.

    Cons

    Personal financial growth can be stunted and many people leave HCA to chase higher pay,

    Advice to Management

    If the earnings could match the growth, more lower level employees would remain and loyalty could be strengthened.

    I worked at Hospital Corporation of America full-time

    Pros

    Great company with good benefits, ethical company and deficated to great customer service.

    Cons

    Majority of employees & administration are nurses. Therefore, majority has the power that sometimes makes decisions that relieve nurses, not realizing how other departments are struggling when picking up some of nursing duties with no extra FTE's.

    I have been working at Hospital Corporation of America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a job with benefits. There are a lot of good nurses, nurse practitioners, PA's, and doctors working there. A place to at least start out at.

    Cons

    Not willing to make changes. No support for staff. Only focused on patient reviews. Pay is terrible and never willing to negotiate. They're all about recruitment and not retention.

    Advice to Management

    Make changes and start to care about your staff more. If you don't take care of your medical staff and let them know what they're doing right (not always what they do wrong), you may keep some of the good workers. You've already lost a bunch because of this.
