I have been working at Lake Wales Medical Center part-time
Pros – Radiology crew is good, I like the managers/director. Great pay, one of the best paying hospitals in the area.
Cons – no room for advancement/additional training. They will hire outside of the hospital, to fill positions instead of training the crew they have. Run by nurses, so don't have any run ins with a nurse, you will be wrong.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Lake Wales Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Good pay, benefits were ok, most of the nurses were wonderful.
Cons – Constantly looking over your shoulder, everyone tries to report and backstab everyone "throw you under the bus", favortism, childish "clicks". no employee recognition except negative.
Advice to Senior Management – I think the best thing to do would be to clean house.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Lake Wales Medical Center
Pros – It is closed to my home. Other than that, the colleagues are very friendly and have a spirit of teamworking. If you want to work either Heart of Florida, Bartow or LWMC, LWMC is better choice to go. Second one is Bartow Hospital, the least is Heart of Florida. ER of Heart of Florida is always flooded with patients. Somtimes it is having 20 holding patients in ER. PCU in HOF is busier and having very sick patients too. My manager in LWMC is pretty good and allows flexibility in scheduling our roster. She is friendly and helpful. She is willing to cross train you if you want.
Cons – The patient to nurse ratio is 7:1 in PCU, very dangerous
Advice to Senior Management – not at this time
