    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Great holistic approach to patient care. Patient centered and espousing healthy living/lifestyle

    Cons

    Heavy workload for staff, especially when acuity was high, which made it hard to provide a safe environment for patients

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a larger facility would be a good start and is probably in the works.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Saint Helena Hospital part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Nice location. Employees friendly.

    Cons

    Administration team over paid and over rated. Secretive management team recluses into their offices instead of being visible and accessible to work team. Lowest paying hospital in the Bay Area. Treat employees more as a liability than an asset. Administration pinches pennies from staff with low pay and benefits cuts while enjoying fat salaries and perks. Dishonest administration. Human Resources team work more as a risk management for the hospital than employee resource.

    Advice to Management

    The employees in this small hospital are our friends and neighbors who have dedicated themselves to this hospital for years. How you treat employees directly influences how you are evaluated by locals. Its not the fancy flyers mailed out or billboards by the roadside that influence people. Every employee is a walking/talking emissary pro or con. Start representing your employees before they find an entity that will represent them to you.

    Pros

    Beautiful location, but that is about all. Don't waste your time.

    Cons

    Poor benefits, lack of communication, oppressive leadership. If you are not Adventist, you don't have a chance. Pay is much lower than competitors, employees are not expected to have a personal life and work-life balance is poor.

    Campus has been under construction for years and employee parking situation is very bad. Employees must park far from the facility and wait for a ride which might take 30 minutes, but employees don't get paid until they arrive at the facility. The same situation applies to getting back to your car in the evening. Doctors and staff are all very unhappy due to lack of resources and sense of accomplishment.

    Parts of facility have been shut down to improper building, and code violations. Some employees are forced to work in a builing 100+ years old that is not earthquake safe. Campus is difficult to navigate for patients and staff.

    Human Resources forgets to remove jobs long after they have been filled and turn over is VERY high.

    Leadership is untruthful and uses deceptive tactics with everyone.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and embody your mission. Give employees the resources they need to do their jobs. Don't make people feel guilty for not praying at meetings and meals. Don't pay your friends huge salaries and bonuses, and cut the salaries of people who actually care for patients.
