    I have been working at PeaceHealth part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have been an occupational therapist for many years and worked in a lot of different places, most recently the VA for the past 10 years. PeaceHealth is by far one of the best companies I have ever worked for. The orientation focused on employees being "caregivers" not just staff , and the the mission statement is heartfelt and compassionate Their wages are very competitive and I feel respected, valued, and supported by my supervisor and team. It's only been a couple of months but unless things change, I hope to be working there for years to come

    Cons

    The computer system (EPIC) is laborious and difficult to learn...too many drop down options and information to wade through.

    I have been working at PeaceHealth full-time

    Pros

    The training is detailed. It's a community all on the same team with the priority of taking care of our patients. I like the clear policies as well as the moral created by the wooden tokens, cards from management and the floors planning potlucks to celebrate each other's achievements. I like that when I express a concern about a patient I'm taken seriously. Team work makes the dream work!

    Cons

    During training on resource team frequently during my tour someone on the floor said "hey, we're short.. stay here and work with us". I also heard a lot about people filling in at Station 2 leaving no resource team to work as floats. There's an obvious concern about staffing among caregivers

    I worked at PeaceHealth full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Made great life-long friends. Enjoyed working there up until 3-4 years ago. Thought I was going to retire there.

    Cons

    Slowly (over the last 3-4 years) saw the decline in a community based hospital and moving towards a corporate take no prisoners approach to healthcare. Many, many departments outsourced to out of state companies. Constant fear your department was next and then your department was next. Management in some depts was very cliquey and hired friends even if not qualified. CEO, VPs, higher ups changed frequently. The guard was constantly changing in all departments. I was proud to have worked for Southwest, but the past 2-3 years I no longer even told people where I worked. If they found out where, very few had good things to say.

    Advice to Management

    I understand the need to stay within budgets and make money to continue to function, but now it seems to be at the point where employees and the communities that PeaceHealth is located is no longer a concern or worth caring about. Only money. Listen to what your community is saying about you, TRULY LISTEN. What can you do to improve that. What can you do to encourage and help your employees be happier at the workplace. PeaceHealth facilities, compared to other hospitals in the Portland/Vancouver area, have some the most unhappy, rude people anymore. Many of the outsourced people work for PH competitors now and are much more happier and supported by their employers,
