    I have been working at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Staff throughout this hospital has a lot of dedication and heart. The laboratory leadership and technicians truly care about the accuracy and quality of their work. They are mindful that there is a patient behind that sample. This safety net hospital is highly valued and needed by the community.

    Cons

    The hospital will soon close. The uncertainty for the future has created some tensions. Bad news press - there are so many great things about Mercy Hospital that just is not making it out to the press.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Mercy Hospital and Medical Center full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The employees work well together. Some employees have worked together for so long they develop a friendship and become an extension of your family. Easy commute. The parking is free.

    Cons

    Poor leadership under the new Administration since 2012. The former CEO Sr. Sheila was beloved and known by staff as she was visible and made an effort to know her employees. The current CEO Carol is hardly recognized because she’s not present on campus, lacks empathy, and does not interact with employees. Unorganized and lack of transparency from the Administration.
