    I have been working at Queen of the Valley Medical Center part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free, convenient parking,lovely area with small town feel, took into account my schedule preferences, had enough supplies, acuity of pts fairly low (no open heart/cath lab, trauma level), pt's were overall sweet - don't act entitled, co-workers were courteous, usually helpful, seem like just good people.

    Cons

    MEDITECH! Physicians seem patriarchal, rude, not my favorite, floated every shift, sometimes twice a shift (floated within 2 hours of beginning shift). A large majority of my sweet patients did not speak the same language as I, which is a bit of a challenge, but they were patient with me. Really helps if you are bilingual here (would like to learn, but takes time).

    Pros

    If you work here you live in Napa.

    Cons

    Administration believes that their job security is more important than the well being of its constituents. This includes not only employees but the patients as well. I have worked at Kaiser and other well respected institutions and have never seen such unprofessionalism and disregard for other people. To them, survival and market share take precedent in decisions around new service offerings and partnerships. Layoffs and re-orgs now plague this institution while they still try to do business the same way.

    Advice to Management

    Put your career and internal politics behind you. You are losing the war because you suppress ingenuity and progress by allowing the old guard to be influenced by their own concerns for survival. Let them know that this type of maneuvering will not be allowed and protect those who are politically vulnerable. This will allow transparency and new ideas to flourish. Its already too late to have a fighting chance against Kaiser. Expect to irrelevant soon and simply a contracted access point for a acute care for Kaiser unless drastic changes are made immediately.
