    Pros

    The access patients have to care at HDVCH is wonderful. There are so any well educated physicians you are able to discuss patients with and I believe that the communication is a great advantage within the system.

    Cons

    Being a part of such a large organization, employees start to become emails, calls, or a staff number. There is such a disconnect between the employees of different departments, roles, etc which is a huge con is working is such a large organization .

    Advice to Management

    To strive to get to know your employees better. Not just their work personalities, but who they are even outside of work. Building a better community of workers holds the fate of Spectrum Health.

    The staff at our facility in Big Rapids is great.

    A corporation shouldn't run a hospital, because they are only looking at the $ sign not the patient or staff.

    Allow 8 hour shifts to all working areas.
