Once the medical director left and they hired a businessman in his place the place became a nightmare. Support became 0
Suggestions for improvement
- As I already said, focus less on profit and more on care. Provide appropriate level of stopping so that everyone is not overworked and under paid. This goes from the support staff all the way up to the chief position is posted Shannon’s version as I already said, focus less on profit and more on care. Provide appropriate level of stopping so that everyone is not overworked and under paid. This goes from the support staff all the way up to the chief physicians.
What I like about the company
I met some nice people there. Some very talented positions. Many of them left when the medical director retired. I enjoyed the patients. I learned a lot. About medicine, myself, and life. Unfortunately, when the medical director who was a physician left the
corporate culture of went downhill. Patients were not supported. Staff were not supported. Salaried employees got more and more responsibilities and no more pay. Now that I am in private practice I cannot believe what I subjected myself to. I worked there for 11 years. I had worked at another Children’s Hospital for two years prior to VCH. To put it simply, overworked and underpaid.
What I dislike about the company
The physicians are generally excellent. They working conditions are untenable. They need to focus less on the bottom line and more on providing support staff and additional doctors to provide the quality care for which valley children’s hospital used to be known. University of California San Francisco sends their residents there for goodness sake!
