    I worked at Loretto Hospital as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You learn as you work, leadership is willing to teach, the company prides itself on familial relationships. If you are looking to be exposed to a broad scope of healthcare topics then look no further. Working here has taught me everything from government regulations to CPI techniques.

    Cons

    You have to be very quick on your feet, and be able to self-direct in some instances. This wasn't a "con" for me, but it may be for some people. As with every hospital, it is in need of "a few good men" (or women) to brighten the outlook. It is in a very underserved area, so a positive attitude and willingness to challenge yourself goes a long way.

    I have been working at Loretto Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good starting experience for new nurses. Patient population mostly local with attendant downstream chronic illnesses. Well located to serve its community.

    Cons

    At the time of employment, needed some improvement in process management, communications between clinical staff. Needed more focus on providing continuing education to its nursing staff. Mostly non-compliant patient population. Could use some focus here also in terms of patient education and follow-up.

    I worked at Loretto Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The staff that I worked with typically maintained a positive attitude, and came up with great ideas on improving patient care and the overall patient experience.

    Cons

    The Senior Management is not patient focused. They are solely focused on the bottom line. Overall, they do not care about improving the health of the patient.

    I have been working at Loretto Hospital full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary, good benefits. They are really trying to change the culture of the hospital, which is great k there is good energy.

    Cons

    Lack of organization in management. Lack of specific orientation once you've completed the overall orientation; you get thrown into the fire after general orientation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication needs improvement.
