    I have been working at Rockford Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The employees that are left still have "hope" for better behavior from Administration.

    Cons

    No one around in Administration, poor communication, expectations are high, not transparent and the community sees the poor results.

    Advice to Management

    How can you run a hospital when you're not here? Be visible to staff, hire the best candidate, not your Best Friend, go easy on the nepotism. Have a fair wage structure for staff, stop replacing Rockford employees with Janesville employees: they're not vested in the community. Value your employees and don't lie to the community.

    The have air in the summer heat in winter.
    The have hand sanitized and umbrella bags. Gift shop is ok. Java city has good coffee.

    Cons

    The are about bottom line not patients or there fellow partners. You are less then unless you are in management and if you are you don't have to follow the rule or be held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    Follow policy of health system and know that the people who work for you matter and so does there families. Treat all partners like they matter get rid of 80% of management and hire more nurses and CNA and pay them well. Stop putting new grads in a 8 month residency and want it done in 4. Make the hospital the best not bigger. Focus on your people and the true health of community also tell the truth about leaving Rockton ave in 10 years or less.

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

    Pros

    The doctors and medical staff is top-notch. They care, they are the best, and they work as a team.

    Cons

    Management at all levels is corporate quagmire. Everything is about the bottom line and mostly at the cost of patient care. They love to hire new grads and people from outside healthcare so they can get them to do their dirty work. There is complete disconnection between management and those who actually do the WORK.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Give them what they ask for, they know what they need to succeed better than you do.
