Worked for this healthcare system for many years in various departments. Some CEO's have been employee friendly..others not so much.Current one definitely NOT.
Merging and growing the system is needed for survival in a harsh financial enviroment.
BUT that being said....now is the worse its ever been for an employee...your work will be overloaded, no thank you's,no promotions, no internal transfers, staff cuts, and have to work with Per Diems who are never here long enough to really function well as a team.And if you go to management or HR, you are reminded you are an "at will" employee who can be fired anytime for any reason.
We also care immensely for the patients and visitors, but hard to keep positive attitude when administration steps on our backs.
