Coworkers

CONS:

Parking. Due to new expansion and construction, parking for employees is scarce. Choice of parking free several blocks away and relying on shuttle service that can be delayed by weather, traffic, and events at nearby stadium and convention center, or parking using monthly contract at garage 2-3 blocks away (long wait list at hospital garage). Be prepared to double your patient load during holidays do to vacation and call-ins, especially in ICUs.
