    Pros

    West Georgia location still feels like a family environment.
    Local management is kind and supportive even through struggles.
    Lots of job openings if you want to work at another location.

    Cons

    The new benefits in 2018 are a joke. Matching 1/4 percent on 403b for each percent we put in. They added a pension plan..but we all know how quickly that money can leave.
    Benefits went to a High Deductible and HSA card program. I work for a hospital and my insurance covers less of the business we are actually in.
     Suddenly feel like just a number not an employee. Management openly admits they are just as confused on new policies and procedures. So sad that a smooth running ship feels like it's sinking now with the Wellstar Merger. Such a shame....the once great Community Hospital will soon be no more.

    Advice to Management

    Your transparency is poor. Your new locations Tenet and West Georgia simply do not feel like part of the larger Legacy group. So much of management at those locations are clueless as to upcoming changes and transition plans.
    Spend more time letting these new locations know what is going on. Seriously for a health system your employees health coverage should be the leading item in your portfolio.
