    I have been working at Wellmont Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Dedicated to medicine and technology. Use EPIC system wide to improve patient care. Tries to provide same level of patient care in small towns as it does in large towns. Spends a lot of effort training and educating. Company likes to promote from within and grow their family.

    Cons

    Can get a little too bogged down in rules and regulations. Too behind the times in dress and appearance code. Could update non-medical software as much as medical software.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more energy getting employees engaged at every level. Wellmont is all about good people performing good medicine for the benefit of the community. All Wellmont employees should feel like they are making a difference - management needs to reward them in a way that makes them feel like they are.

    I worked at Wellmont Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The employees are wonderful people who really care about their jobs

    Cons

    The staffing is so low and the turnover rate so high that there was no incentive for anyone to do a good job, and the patients noticed. The amount of travelers to local nurses should be an indicator of the work environment, which was incredibly toxic. Management did not listen when we said we were drowning and needed help, just cut staffing back even further. In my brief time there, I watched dozens leave for other local healthcare workplaces and I could not blame them.

    Advice to Management

    Pay has to be raised and employees have to be listened to, or else this downward spiral will continue.

    Pros

    There may some pros for outpatient clinics but the hospitalist program is the worst

    Cons

    Terrible administration- No far vision. I am very much disturbed by WMA and WHS administration. There are good physician in the group but overall there is no good work environment. People love to pull each other legs and make life miserable. WMA Hospitalist program administration is very manipulative. Lot of favoritism but no quality.
