    Pros

    There are some really great people who work at FMC. People are usually very warm and welcoming. Relationships with your immediate managers are usually pretty good. I think for the most part everyone is willing to work together for a better whole. It is growing and improving.

    Cons

    Less pay than Columbus or other nearby bigger cities. A lot of changes taking place. Not very many raises so far.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with leading Lancaster physicians in a specialty practice. Great medical experience for qualified medical professionals to work close to home.

    Cons

    Poor management by FHP Director, no Policies and Procedures manual, incredibly high employee turnover. Physicians, patients and employees are held hostage to profits. Knee jerk policies are enacted with little regard for physician's or their patient's well-being.

    Advice to Management

    FMC's Board of Directors should ask some deep, pointed questions about the trajectory of FHP while FMC is still viable in the community. A bad reputation cannot be healed by a new building addition. Columbus is 20 minutes away and most have state of the art facilities. My first job at FMC was in 1967 and I retired 3 weeks ago, four years before I wished.

    Pros

    Good stability for the average person if you are just looking for a job to pay the bills. It was a good place to develop your work force skills.

    Cons

    People worry to much about others. Some people try to stay out of the work force drama and it can lead to others not caring for you to much.

  5. Third rate facility. Nurses sat at the nurses station all night on their phones ignoring lights and alarms.

    Pros

    I cannot personally think of any great reasons to work here. There are some exceptionally good nurses who aren't appreciated and are passed over, managed by idiots.

    Cons

    Management has no consistency in it's policy enforcement. Threatened by people with experience in other healthcare facilities with knowledge and ideas to improve the place. Managers have the level of importance all mixed up. It's the people who work the floors that matter, who work with the patients. They are the most valuable assets..not management and their cronies. The same people over and over in their Monday morning..earning cracker jack awards.

    Advice to Management

    Get a consultant team in there. The Studor Group..they turned around another hospital I worked in that was not quite as backwards as this one. Stop treating your employees like crap. If it weren't for them holding the place together in spite of management's incompetency, there would be no FMC. Ask the employees how to solve a problem instead of making changes based on what management, who hasn't touched a patient in years, thinks. Get rid of your HR people. If they operate on principles that Administration perpetuates, it's worse than I thought. The Board should have direct input from nursing representatives, other than the CNE, who is only there to get recognition for herself. Give employees a real survey, one where they can honestly write what is wrong with their manager or supervisor. You can't change anything when you discourage people from honestly telling you what is wrong. You're losing a lot of business due to your reputation for poor care and for how you treat your employees...check out that ER would you? What a mess...maybe you need a real manager there too. Funny how management is blind to the worst among them.

    Benefits package is terrible, don't play employees what they are really worth

    Train department managers on how to manage before they are thrown into the positions
