Former Employee (Former Employee), Miami, FL – December 16, 2013
Pros: employees are dedicated, hard working and friendly. employees want to do the right thing.
Cons: ignores compliance issues, culture of fear, lacks strategic planning efforts, losing market share, ripe for take over, laden with consultants
Poor executive management, lack of strategic vision, reactionary, management treats their employees like 2nd class citizens. Lack of compliance and culture of "don't ask don't tell." No collaboration and most of senior management is out of touch with what is going on around them. Management team is consumed with implementing several internal projects – more... at once, doing none of them well or missing execution of goals routinely. Both employed physicians and senior management more worried about selfish personal interests vs. putting Hospital and programs first. Senior Mangement does not support each other. – less
Pros: we have a lot of help such as a phlebotomist, respiratory therapist making team work very important
As we all know the Miami Children's Hospital is the best hospital exclusively for children. It has several specialty programs and educational programs for us and our family.
A typical day at work starts always with my expectation that something good and positive will happen (such as a smile from a little one and his family) and that I will learn something – more... new. I started my day with enthusiasm and positivism because that was what I wanted to convey. The first thing in the morning was to received report and assessed my patients; after that planning my day and prioritized my duties. I learned a lot of things during my time at Miami Children's Hospital at Neuro Floor such as different kind of approaches, how to use certain equipment, prioritizing, discharged process, teaching (parents), how to deal with different kind of people and how to approach them and of course documentation.
My co-workers were excellent, approachable, hard working and acknowledge. They showed me the true meaning of teamwork. I enjoyed every single day working (leadership rotation) there. – less
Great company to work for. Left because my husband took another job in another state.
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Miami, FL – October 28, 2013
Typical day in the admitting department was triaging direct admissions. Assigning bed placement for all admissions and transfers. My co workers were fabulous to work with. We were a small team of nurses. Everyone shared the work load. The hardest part was satisfying the scheduled admissions when the hospital was full and we did not have a bed for them. – more... The most enjoyable part of the job was making the admitting process smooth for the parents and children. Seeing their appriciation for making it easier to deal with. – less
Director, Information Technology (Former Employee), Miami, FL – September 9, 2013
Pros: inspiring place to work, good use of technology
Cons: growing pains, many competing priorities
There were many projects completed during my tenure at Miami Children's Hospital. I learned a great deal about the healthcare industry, particularly in those areas specific to healthcare information technology, including billing, interfaces and medical staff support.
My co-workers were very passionate about providing the best support possible to the – more... medical staff, patients and families. The work/life balance was usually tilted towards work, but over time, significant improvements were made to the Information Technology infrastructure and application systems. – less
A fast pace office that encouraged creativity for implementing process flows and automation. Co-workers were great hard working people that became like family. Toughest part of the job was knowing that there are so many ill children. The rewarding part was knowing that the facility is highly rated in providing the highest level of care for several specialities.
Sr. Collector (Former Employee), Miami, FL – August 29, 2013
Fun great group to work with. Everyone is super friendly. Management is always accessible. Collections through insurance and patients. It was very hard and emotional to collect invoices directly from patients.
Assistant to the Director of Plant Operations (Former Employee), Miami, FL – June 20, 2013
Pros: benefits, close to my house
Cons: the department i worked had a great deal of problems and working there was not pleasant
The Department I worked was not organized. The place was a very toxic place to work. Although working for the Hospital was great they had activities for the employee but working within this Department was not well. The co-workers were not great peopel to work with. You were not graded on your merits and hard work but rather on one persons perception. – more... The job was toxic and I was glad when they told me my position was eliminated as my Director had resigned. – less
Hospital Is Losing Market Share From Larger Organization
N/A (Former Employee), Miami, Florida – May 30, 2013
Pros: front line staff is great......executive poor
Cons: employees are third class citizens.....
Poor strategic leadership from executive team and lack of vision. This organization is losing market share and millions of dollars. They are unable to compete with the larger health systems and may benefit to merge to a viable health children system. They are always three steps behind .....with their health business model and lack innovative ideas! – more... My experience with MCH was very poor. The organization provide poor salary, wages and benefits. I had a coworker who has a son with a disability and they refuse to provide help when she requested and needed it for her son. Their benefits to do not provide the coverage that you would expect from a children's hospital to their own staff. The Front Line staff is great and provide great healthcare ....but is large problem with their management team. – less
I am trying to get a job as a Behavioral Health Technician, but it seems as if I can't get HR to notice my application. Are they hiring? How can I get a job there?
