Clinic was great at one time, since then.....
Pros: co-workers, great physicians, schedule
Cons: poor leadership
Over the 7+ years I was employed at the clinic I saw a massive decline in the treatment of how managment treated employees. This decline still continues to this day, as I still have several friends employed with Springfield Clinic. I choose to leave due to the decline in environment. The Clinic does not appear to care about the employees, or how they are treated by managment and on up the ladder. This make a person wander then, Do they care about the patients, I cannot see where they do. What they do care about is the Obama plan, and getting the most $$$ once the "lump sum payment" goes into effect. I honestly believe the plan to achieving this is not based on customer satisfaction, but on keeping all treatments, referals, procedures, etc within the clinic itself. At last count over 90% of the physicians offices were performing at below Press Ganey standards required to recieve the bigger slice of pie payments. Instead of the Clinic doing anything they could to promote better patient satisfaction, they are cutting well trained, respected, and dedicated employees, and bringing ing younger, less experienced, lacking work ethic, and motivation to replace them causing the decline in patient satisfaction. The physicians really have no say in how thier office is ran, there is no job security, has turned into a dictatorship. At first I had thought maybe this was isolated to the area in which I was employed, but since then I have found that it is pretty much clinic wide, and that even though the administrative departments and personal have been informed of multiple department bulling, hostility and so on, the problem(s) continue. This has caused an increase in employee health issues related to the stress of such working conditions, therefore if they do not care about the health issues of the employees - Do they care about thier patients? Unfortunatly it will be the great physicians, and thier patients who will suffer the most.
