People work here for the retirement
I was excited to work here when I started. Then budget and productivity concerns dragged me down. I feel everyone squeezed for productivity without the equipment or space needed for best patient outcomes. Service line delineation and grant money divides the haves and have nots in regards to space and equipment to perform their jobs. As positions are left, we are told we cannot justify a replacement and increasingly more work duties are piled on without additional incentives and/or compensation of time to perform new duties adequately. There are some wonderful people to work with here that care a lot about patients and their well being. In the end, if you are not a physician or researcher that can bring in grant money, you voice carries little to management. If you need to just buckle down on retirement and have some good health benefits, this is an ok place to work. Just keep a stiff upper lip and do the best you can with what you have.
