    Pros

    There are many great doctors and staff. Great orientations. Love that it's the only certified pediatric burn hospital around.

    Cons

    There are some specialtites that I would not bring my child to, but there are many that I would. Certain hospitals have a nitch and some you should just go elsewhere.

  3. So much potential unrealized

    Pros

    Dedicated staff, rewarding patient population, excellent team to be a member of at the employee level

    Cons

    Too much focus on profit and near quarter earning rather than the big picture for the future. It is a very profitable enterprise that puts too much focus on expense control to maximize profit, such that there is insufficient staff to get the job done. The new construction project appears to be done at the expense of not maintaining the existing facility.

    Pros

    Really able to help the community and offers the opportunity to serve pediatric patients

    Cons

    The Administrative leadership is out of touch with their staff and patients. The CEO is horrible. She talks a good game but has made no improvement during her tenure.

    Advice to Management

    Tenet should really consider replacing their Administrative team. The team lack has a high employee turnover rate and is not held accountable for their actions and poor leadership skills.

    Pros

    Unlike most places they hire by qualifications. I have seen a lot of jobs that want you to work temp with no benefits for a year or more with not encouragement that you will work for them full time.

    Cons

    Like the tears of the clown with St Christopher you see and are instructed one thing (caring, honesty, and friendliness) and you get another (back stabbing, uncaring management, and even false accusations to get you out of there.) I have never seen so many leaders with hidden agendas. Quitting my last job to come to St. Christopher was by far the worst decision of my life.

    The sad thing is St. Christopher's will continue to become more successful because the money, is more important than the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp, there is nothing I like about how management works. They talk a good game but their actions causes everyone not in the medical field to spend your time their walking on egg shells

    Pros

    I like my co workers. They are the ones I can count on for help and support.

    Cons

    The healthcare benefits are the worst part about working here. I cannot afford to get exams and tests that I need because the deductible is so high. I also put off going to the doctor or filling prescriptions I need because of the high cost. I have been with the company 12 years and if things don't improve with the benefits I will look for other employment. Management is also a joke. Nurses are hired as interim managers and without any interviewing of other candidates they are hired as manages. It's not a fair hiring process

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff during the employee survey. How can a manager that has awful reviews stay in that position year after year?

    Pros

    small feel, MDs within group easy to approach and collaborate with for the most part. Loved my patient population

    Cons

    poor leadership, benefits, and management would "disappear." We would received emails multiple times a month stating " …was not longer an employee". strange.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate your nursing staff, specifically NPs. Give them representation in leadership

  11. Great
