Sumner Regional Medical Center Reviews
Pros – SRMC is unlike any other hospital. They really put the patients and families first (with the #1 focus on Customer Service), care about their employees (great benefits, competitive pay), and have an outstanding leadership team (Lifepoint CEO of the Year, future growth is BRIGHT - future career opportunities).
Cons – New leadership = Exciting changes, but growing pains. The hospital has a history of doing things the same way. The new leadership team has implemented new strategies to improve the hospital; however, some tenured employees aren't used to change. Overall, the changes are going to help the hospital/system improve their level of care/customer service.
Advice to Senior Management – Continue making each employee feel valued.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Other employees have your back and are willing to help you out. Management seems to try to incentivize employees with awards for going above and beyond.
Cons – Ever-increasing nurse-to-patient ratio and endless paperwork and charting make actual patient care less than optimal. We are often understaffed considering the acuity level and numbers of patients.
Advice to Senior Management – Consider acuity levels as well as patient census and adjust staffing accordingly. Find ways to eliminate needless charting and consolidate redundant information.

Pros – Sumner Regional employs some of the most wonderful, caring and kind people in Middle Tennessee. Staff genuinely care about one another, and most importantly, want to offer our patients the best care possible. Our number one asset is our people.
Cons – There has been uncertainty regarding the future of Sumner Regional for approximately two years. The stress of the uncertainty has taken its toll, and people are becoming distracted. The sooner resolution to the future path can be made, the better for all involved.
Advice to Senior Management – Value your directors. They are the backbone of the organization. It isn't senior management, although the CNO is excellent.
