The hospital I worked at was a not for profit hospital when I started. Patient care was all that mattered. When Tenet purchased our hospital it took all of us quite a long time to adjust to the workings of a for profit hospital. However, the benefits far outweighed the negatives. New equipment, better benefit packages, and competitive wages were all positive changes. Dealing with a large company made decision making at all levels much more tedious because of the added levels of management. Overall, I enjoyed my time there.
