    I worked at KentuckyOne Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    salaries were decent and the people I worked with were great. We tried to work as a family

    Cons

    Administrators have no clue what is going on. They never walk to your floor or office or seek out and ask questions. They have no concern for you. You never see them. Common sense items are not corrected. They are so cheap they would not hire a secretary to admit people to Frazier rather keep patients in the hospital at high costs. Just don't don't their business

    I worked at KentuckyOne Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent manager, charge nurses, and RRT nurses. Able to easily reach doctors when you need them.

    Cons

    Poor staffing ratio, not enough techs and nurses on the floor. House lets ER and other units bring too many beds to our floor at one time and it happens very often during shift change.

    Advice to Management

    Better staffing considering acuity of patients.

    Pros

    Coworkers are skilled and passionate about their work.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul your HR department and work on retaining high-quality, highly-skilled employees. Start living the values of your mission instead of just talking about it. Stop sending out "anonymous" surveys to your employees where we have to put in our employee id - no one is going to be honest if they think they're job is on the line. This is especially true since HR consistently retaliates against employees when they speak up.

    Good place to work with excellent benefits and great opportunity to advance your career. Leadership / staff was always great to work.

    Young company in the making. A lot of leadership and changes and a lot of challenges in the healthcare industry to make.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to build relationships with employees. We're employees embrace and accept the company visions and goals.
