Bozeman Health is working hard to create a culture of highly engaged and motivated employees. Unfortunately, this is hard to achieve with the current direction the organization is being taken. This organization attempts to thrive on ambiguous decisions and tightly held secrets. Dedicated leaders are randomly disappearing and being replaced by less experienced and unqualified staff members who are favorited by administration for their blind willingness to follow rather than a ability to aid in the organizational success. The CEO is nothing more than a politician, skilled at spinning the right words. He speaks of joy and family, but does little more than lip service to demonstrate a commitment to anyone but his own hand picked executive team. He justifies decisions based on outside opinions of expensive consultants. An unprecedented level of spending to outside consultants, some of which share rooted ties to people the CEO shares personal relationships with, has done little more than frivolously spend the dwindling profit margins of Bozeman Deaconess. Staff here do genuinely care about patient care, but also have a general sense of fear of getting caught up in the rapid changes being forced into the company. There are many employees that work here simply due to the monopoly that Bozeman Health has created for itself, and they await the day competition finally arrives.
