    Pros

    Great culture in theory. When encountering a dilemma, we always considered what "the right thing to do" was and tried to follow that. Great leadership development program. Good benefits.

    Cons

    The culture can be very different by department. Some are great and some I would not recommend.

    Pros

    Opportunity to grow in both operations management and finance as well as IT positions of multiple specialties. Excellent benefits package and incentives. Growing company through acquisitions and affiliations of hospitals in many states.

    Cons

    Healthcare is now a very challenging industry due to downward pressure on revenues and multiple challenges in a highly regulated industry

    I worked at LifePoint Hospitals full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hospital looks good on the outside

    Cons

    The most experienced nurses have been there for nine months, tops. Leadership is made up of inexperienced nurses with no more than an associate degree who landed the jobs by way of the "good ole boy" system. High turnover rate means no one knows what they're doing, especially in HR. Managent won't listen to new ideas of nurse managers, thus leading to extreme frustration and eventually quitting. There have been 3 nurse managers in 10 months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't work here unless you want to be frustrated and unheard.

    I have been working at LifePoint Hospitals (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits. Good front line people who really care about the patient and their coworkers. Local management tries their best.

    Cons

    Lots of talk about patient safety and doing what's right for the patient, buts appears to be mainly just checking a box and lip service. Lots of lets put the next big fad in healthcare in place but then not much follow through, just move on to the next fad next year. Healthcare ADD in action.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is for HSC: It's a for profit corporation, I understand that, but it's still healthcare, there are patients attached to those dollars. Eliminate your bonuses. Stop working the front line employee like a second class citizen and for once, really care about the patient, not the bonus.

    Pros

    HSC Support at local level. Good focus on local communities. Great staff at the department level that are committed to their work and patient care.

    Cons

    Benefits are not great. Low PTO accrual rates. The management structure is poorly designed at the local hospital level. Staff do not have a lot of opportunity to voice opinion in the decision making process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at LifePoint Hospitals (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Only 1 of 2 hospital in whole county, so other options in healthcare are at quite a distance. Both are LifePoint properties.

    Cons

    skeleton staffing levels for nurses, ancillary staff. Treat employed and independent physicians like expendable widgets whose opinions are not worthy of consideration. treat nurses the same. Overall focus of LifePoint is to charge as much as they can get away with, while providing barely adequate care, resources, staffing and equipment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management style must change from dictatorship to co-operative. Listen to employees and community. .
