Private practice to large hospital organization

    Default Private practice to large hospital organization
    New Call-to-action
    Anyone else out there have the private practice they were working at be bought out by a Hospital? We were bought by Ascension Health Ministries and I have been given the clear impression that this organization has no respect for Medical Coders. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this?

    Yes! I applied at my local hospital (granted, I could have just walked into the HR department and applied) and I received a call from a recruiter out of state who didnt seem that interested to know that I was a local resident with exact experience as the job role- like I live right down the street, have had a relationship with the hospital and community for 10+ years... she said she would get back to me within 2 weeks. Never heard from her again, never received a rejection letter...etc. I ended up getting another job but still thought that the hospital should know that they were losing out on great local candidates because now they had to go through this new hiring process with Ascension.
