Really supportive environment. We were like a family. A strong emphasis on work life/balance.
Could sometimes be high pressure.

It is a great hospital, awesome patient care
They could do better with treating there employees with respect (they could hire human resource employees that stand up & protect the employees from a bitter & angry managers make the employees want to stay there

Good pay, good benefits and a lot of things to learn
bad management, bad consulting companies

Some wonderful people work here who are passionate about the health of the communities that we serve.
Upper management appears to be clueless as to what it means to work here. They need to get truly serious about providing their employees with a positive work environment, including adequate pay and staffing levels. Until the work force is fixed, they will never be able to meet the ridiculous budgets they set forth. how can a company in such decline keep the same leadership?1

I enjoy working with patients to be sure their needs are met at discharge, that part is rewarding. I also enjoy most of my coworkers. I think the case management department really does care about doing a good job for the patients.
It is supposed to be a no overtime department, unless they are short-staffed and need you to work an extra day on the weekend, HA! They are almost always short staffed and expect you to do the work of 1.5-2 people on a regular basis. There is a lot of turnover in the department. The manager that just left was very difficult to deal with, critical, very little people skills. The new manager has better people skills, but is more interested in utilization review that case management, not sure how that is going to work out down the line.4

Coworkers are skilled and passionate about their work.
Pay is not competitive in market and HR is completely inept. There is a lot of talk about how important it is to retain good employees, but when it comes down to it, KentuckyOne Health is eliminating great employees. They are keeping the low-earning and complacent ones who stay quiet even when they disagree with company decisions. HR has too much control and no idea nor any interest in retaining good employees and offering competitive pay to keep talented professionals in Louisville. This is a huge mistake. As of this review, 8 of my colleagues have requested a higher base pay due to merit, earned credentials or a degree, or increased years of service without pay increase - all were denied. Several were given "title promotions", but with a very small ($1,500 or less) or no pay increase. All 8 are actively seeking employement elsewhere. This company is ridiculous and HR is a joke.2

Highly educated, dedicated professionals. Great people to work with at the patient level,esp on nights. Great place to get experience esp if you're a self starter and like autonomy.
Now a part of CHI-decreasing practice of best care standards,laying off RNs and RTs,laying off all RTs in their outpatient ERs. Very busy downtown hospital often understaffed. The benefit of being downtown is being surrounded by a strong staff when help is needed immediately. Upper management is no longer a benefit,but a burden. Rumor of more cuts coming.4

KentuckyOne Jewish Hospital is a great place full of people that love their patients. We all strive everyday to make our patients lives better. There is nowhere in Louisville where you will get the specialized clinical opportunities as you will at our hospital. It is a priviledge to work among the best clinical teams in Louisville.
KentuckyOne has had many obstacles in the way of negative press.

Got along great with everyone all over the facility. Ppl are great and easy to establish friendships. The regular employees (us peons) are very trustworthy.
Please do away with the core values. This corporation, and its leaders don't even practice these values but they do expect you to. Leadership in most areas of the facility is a joke. Unrealistic delegation and a lot of time off sums up leaderships role. Leadership is a tigh circle so you will NOT advance; no opportunities to excel. I have also noticed that they are very careful what title they will give you. For example, They will give you a title of a coordinator but give you the task of an executive assistant so they don't have to pay you the real salary. Every single year a new measuring system comes out during evaluation so your raise wasn't really increasing anything but a few pennies. And finally the icing on the cake - HR is only there to help leadership. HR is not there for the peons. It has been proven over and over again. Be careful.1

The people and the mission. I've never worked with such a great group of people, we all support eachother and work together towards our commons goal...our patients. Yes, the company is for sale, but the proposed buyer promises positive changes, and the split from CHI is highly desired by the employees. I highly recommend KentuckyOne Health to anyone interested in finding their new home :-)
There is quite a bit of change, and some leaders need coaching to ensure employees needs are met.1
