Complaint Review: Nicklaus Children's Health System - Miami FL
Nicklaus Children's Health System Nicklaus Children's Hospital Miami Children's Health System Miami Children's Hospital Targeted layoffs and misleading information Miami FL
This review serves as a portrait of a mismanaged and dysfunctional health system.
Mass layoffs were executed from March 31 until April 5 2019 disposing of over 133 valuable employees (it is believed to be much higher over a longer time). The planned number was 200-400 but it was scrapped due to a gofundme post that made them fear patient volume declines. There will still be declines because of the layoff news making it to several different news outlets.
The layoffs affected both clinical and non-clinical staff, in stark contrast to what the CEO told everyone about it not affecting clinical staff. These layoffs were both preferential and targeted despite their vehement claims to the contrary. They targeted employees that were viewed in an unfavorable light by management’s own subjective reasoning. It left the surviving staff demoralized and overwhelmed with more patients and tasks.
The CEO and the entire senior leadership team abandoned the hospital staff by being completely absent while the layoffs were being conducted. The CEO feigned ignorance about this when a very tearful employee brought it up during one town hall meeting.
They have wasted over 140 million dollars on the acquisition and upkeep of the still closed TMMC (The Miami Medical Center) and have no plans to sell it for recovering much needed revenue. They did not give any raises to anyone this year and maybe not even next year.
The CEO and the Senior Leadership Team (SLT) all need to be laid off and the managers and directors need to be monitored so they cannot hire unqualified friends instead of qualified personnel (favoritism/cronyism).
They need to hire and promote from within instead of hiring external candidates over internal qualified ones.
They also need to consider the long-term impacts of their current layoffs on existing employee retention and morale, and this includes any future hires that research a company’s employee reviews.
If you are still employed and survived this layoff, it would be advisable to job search.
Do not bother contacting the HR department about this, because they are just a derelict figurehead devoid of any power or authority in these matters.
