Patient Financial Coordinator

Just graduated with Bachelors in Healthcare Management with an emphasis on patient safety/quality. My current position, that I’ve had since before graduation, does not offer upward movement and I’m miserable. I’ve been in healthcare for 7+ years with a very broad range of customer service/insurance/process improvement roles. I’ve applied to hundreds of jobs, had only a handful of interviews, which have all ghosted. What am I doing wrong here? Any advice appreciated.

    Very Disappointed

    Pros

    - Nice area of the city to work in - Clean and Safe work environment - Free parking for employees - Salary was reasonable

    Cons

    - HR and upper management do not have clear guidelines/policies in place to prevent ALL types of harassment, bullying, and intimidation within the workplace - Hospital politics cripple and prevent certain departments (specifically the department of surgery) within the organization from firing those people in "management" who are unfit, unqualified, and uneducated to perform basic job duties or be a professional team leader - Unprofessional, hostile, and intimidating work environments have lead to very low morale and high turnover rates within the department of Surgery (I am the second residency program coordinator to leave that position within less then a year) . There is a constant sense of anxiety and fear that the work you are performing isn't "good enough" - For anybody who's looking to advance within the healthcare administration field, there are no real opportunities for professional growth because certain departments do not have the right leaders to assist with this - Micromanagement will inevitably prevent you from being able to perform the job you were qualified to be hired for - No type of structured training programs for new employees (in the department of surgery) due to the office coordinator/managers lack of knowledge/qualifications

    Pros

    Nothing unless you have been working here for decades and just literally cruising life with bare minimal effort.

    Cons

    Disorganized upper management with zero transparency and no communications. HR has the worse reputation when inquiring about employee relations issues where siding with management because of the built relationship rather than the critical issue which can cause a lawsuit. People care more about relationships rather than the business itself which ultimately hurts the organization. It's difficult to advance without being a favorite and despite having the same qualification someone else will move up quickly because they are friends with the manager. The organization is inefficient in their workflow and it is in decline stage where the older employees do not want to change with the time and gives push back to new ideas/strategies/technology. There is also racism where people promote their own kind rather than someone who might be highly qualified. The organization fails to recognize the importance of improved technology where the funds go to all the medical upgrades rather than reaching the business unit where actually all the critical decisions are made.

    Pros

    Staff is committed to the mission of the hospital.

    The organization is top heavy and upper management will bankrupt the hospital if someone does not stop them soon.

    Could be better

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Pretty decent benefits that include retirement plan, payed holidays, sick and vacation days. Friendly staff for the most part.

    Cons

    Low salaries. Constant layoffs. Upper management creates high salary positions for friends and family while they continue with the layoffs. Very unethical and unprofessional.
