    Pros

    Lenox Hill is part of the larger NSLIJ system so there are hundreds of different opportunities available at any given time. The hospital is updated and clean with a very easy commute.

    Cons

    I worked there for a year and still to this day do not know what the culture of this hospital is, but I felt like it was every man for himself. I could never really feel comfortable because for the most part I didnt feel welcome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach all staff how to treat any outsider that comes to work for your organization...make them feel welcome or you could loose a potential loyal/long time employee.

    Pros

    There was no shortage of patients from the plastic surgery clinic who desired cosmetic surgery. The attending plastic surgery staff at Lenox Hill are among the best plastic surgeons in the country if not world. They were very willing to train their residents in all aspects of plastic surgery.

    Cons

    Reconstructive plastic surgery was not a very strong point of the training program however with the addition of Lincoln Medical Center and training at Cornell for Burn treatment this area was greatly made stronger

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Good location in the city. Easy commute. Located steps from the subway on the East Side. Good benefits. No issues with work/life balance.

    Cons

    Upper mgmt did not treat people well. Especially women - was a total "boy's club". Even after I left, I found out that Sr. Mgmt were unethically and illegally trying to prevent people (mostly women) from finding work elsewhere for no reason other than spite. I know of one woman who had to bring a lawyer into the situation to prevent upper mgmt from slandering her, even though she left her employment at Lenox Hill with a glowing HR record.

    Inconsistent

    Current Employee - RN/CCC  in  New York, NY
    Current Employee - RN/CCC in New York, NY

    Pros

    Growing - a lot of options available; growing interest in interdisciplinary interaction

    Cons

    Depending on department one is in, disjointed learning and lack of communication between physicians and nurses leading to confusion with the patients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dialogue needs to take place at bedside with family prior to tests being ordered and executed so they are an integral part of understanding their course of care

  9.  

    It's a nice place to work it you are the type of person that can overlook lack of strong administrative skills.

    Pros

    I'm with a dept that is expanding and I am working for the top Breast Surgeon in NY.

    Cons

    As stated above in first question.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NS/LIJ needs to re-evaluate the hierarchy levels at LHH and maybe restructure/revamp some, if not most, of their administration (which they are doing).

    Pros

    Location. Community. Potential for becoming a dominant institution in the city.

    Cons

    Management slow to respond. Physician retention poor. Focus on quality unclear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proactively retain good physicians and staff since they will ultimately determine the success or failure of the hospital.
