    I worked at Legacy Health System

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are good. Organization working hard on promoting from within except for higher-level leadership opportunities. Seems there is more interest to hire from the outside.

    Cons

    Dr. Brown is excellent. Some of the senior leaders spend too much time on their own agendas rather than a common vision. This creates confusion in the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on Dr. Brown's visions collectively

    Hopewell House outdoor maintenance

    I have been working at Legacy Health System

    Pros

    Hopewell House is a lovely place to spend my volunteer time. I have been an employee of Legacy during my professional career as an RN. Now I volunteer there.

    Cons

    The grounds at Hopewell House are in a deplorable state of non-maintenance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I am a hospice volunteer at Hopewell House and have performed duties there since 2008. It has been brought to my attention by staff members and families of our patients that the grounds at Hopewell are extremely unkempt. Weeds are growing in all of the former flower beds, there are dead branches hanging from shrubbery and the gazebo area at the rear of the building is totally overgrown and the roses are dying. It is a shame that our patients and their families have to observe this mess. The other legacy hospitals appear to be fortunate to have wonderful landscaping services. Why does Hopewell not have the same.? One of our nurses has been so generous with her time and money to plant bulbs and other flowers at the entrance. She should not have to do this herself as well as provide excellent hospice service to our patients and their families. Please help make us proud of our facility and maintain this gem of an institution belonging to Legacy. Perhaps one of the management people should visit this wonderful place and recognize the work we do and take a look at the outside environment. We do bring our patients outside in their beds and family members use the courtyard for respite and comfort. How lovely it would be to have beautiful surroundings and not a weed patch. Hoping someone can make Hopewell as beautiful as the other Legacy facilities.

    I worked at Legacy Health System full-time

    Pros

    The pay was decent. Management is supportive. Growth and learning opportunities abundant. Overall, great place to work!

    Cons

    I honestly can't say anything bad about my time with Legacy. I would still work there had my spouse not been relocated out of state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you are doing! You are making a difference and EPIC was by far the best system you could have implemented to increase patient experience since the staff now have the time to really focus on the patients needs.

    I worked at Legacy Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, high standard of behavior

    Cons

    the employees vacation and sick hours come out of the same bank, thus it encourages staff to come to work sick, in order to save Paid Time Off for vacations. No clinical ladder for nurses.

    Pros

    The quality of care is excellent.

    Top down management is not aware of the great potential of the staff it employs. There is little room for professional advancement.

    I have been working at Legacy Health System

    Pros

    Awesome pay and benefits, usually well-staffed, great physicians and nurses to work with, clean facility. Many opportunities to move around within the system.

    Cons

    Because of the location of emanuel and good sam, there are a lot of alcoholics and drug addicts. They're not always the most pleasant patients and it makes for a lot of social work headaches. Personally for me, the hospital is a little far from my home. Traffic sucks.

    Pros

    Some extremely excellent staff providing quality patient care.

    Cons

    Not much room for advancement. Managers stick to numbers rather than focusing on what COULD provide the very best patient care -- people are more important than numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Other than my direct manager...I don't really feel like management exists.
