I have been working at Lake Wales Medical Center full-time for more than a year
Pros – Nice people. Smaller hospital, more one on one time with patients.
Cons – Run by nurses. So it's all about the politics...meaning if you're not a nurse, walk on egg shells because if you make a mistake you're done.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

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
