Case Manager (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – October 7, 2017
The main problem with this hospital is that the top level management/leadership has no clue what they're doing and can't follow through on anything. This is a place where profits come first and patient/employee welfare and safety come third (no clue what even comes second). The only reason the place hasn't completely spiraled into chaos is that they do know how to turn a profit and they screen their patients/clients as to not get the worst of the worst from the Chicago area. Employee turn around is very high and that's not likely to change.
RN (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – May 18, 2017
Worked at this facility for a short time. Orientation was very poor. Management was also poor. Facility was dirty. Had windows so dirty you couldn't even see out of them. Had to call for toilets and floors to be cleaned my first day of working there. Gave an unbelievable amount of patients to there nurses. Liked some of the staff members like Mallory who was very good. One nurse named Lynn was very cold and dismissed patients concerns. She riled pts up and some of them acted out violently. She was not supportive to staff either. She did not care about the patients.New orientees got fed up fast. There Were very hard working nurses there. They did not get the appreciation they deserved. They were lacking supplies many times. It did seem to be a vibe of just making a profit. Some of the time management skills of the administrators were lacking. I ended up resigning but still think about the patients and some of those overworked nurses.

Intake Specialist (Former Employee) – Des Plaines, IL – February 19, 2016
Training is non-existent. Staff are not helpful. Management is terrible. They fire easily with no warning. The place is interested in money only and not quality care of the patients. I would not recommend this place to work or for treatment.
