This was my post last May and I want to retract it; the company had me drinking the Kool-Aid at the time, but showed its real colors shortly afterward with the elimination of many of the key components of the Pittsburgh area. This down-sizing was very cold, provided loyal employees with minimal compensation, and occurred during the holiday season. The bottom line is that they too are all about the numbers and the only compassion that is shown is towards the wallet of the CEO. The leadership, especially from a corporate standpoint, is unresponsive to the needs of the local organization and has no real vision as to how to analyze or address the issues that are present. The strategy to eliminate their top two representatives in December, as well as their Executive Director and two Directors of Clinical Services has been monumental to their success in the Pittsburgh region. In fact, that strategy has worked so well that their census has plummeted another 25% in a short two months. Unfortunately, Compassus does not practice what it preaches! And, in my opinion, this is due to a lack of corporate leadership that has the background (proper education and experience) to properly analyze the market and make appropriate strategic decisions.
