  1. They pay nurses better than the other guy

    I worked at Lewis-Gale Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a better market pay scale for nurses. The other guy I hear oays their nurses very bad and I wonder if thats why we get a lot of the ABSN students from Jefferson. They are the most sought after and lewis gale does lat well. Good team work environment as well. I like my manager.

    Cons

    Sometimes problems are not resolved as fast as we would like them to be solved, but I understand it takes time to improve things. The marketing could also be a bit better as well to attract nurses even more than we already do.

    I have been working at Lewis-Gale Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Senior management has a good vision for the company, cares about staff.

    Cons

    Middle management can be unresponsive or limited in their ability to make positive change.

    Advice to Management

    Improve HR, incentives or bonuses to loyal employees. No real salary difference for experienced staff vs. new grads.

    Pros

    It's a nice hospital and the nurses are super. They are overworked like crazy and it's not fair. The rapporg between staff is great

    Cons

    It is very money driven. The new CEO is a numbers guy. If you don't bring in the patients yourself. You get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on making money only. Support your physicians and nurses. Spend some money to bring in patients to the clinic

    I worked at Lewis-Gale Medical Center part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I appreciated the my co-workers! The staff is the backbone of Lewis Gale!

    Cons

    Constantly understaffed! No sense that employees were important for any other reason but to bring in the buck!

    Advice to Management

    Listen, with more than your ears, to what your staff is saying!
