    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at MemorialCare Health System full-time (More than 5 years)


    Great employees and team work is what makes this hospital great. The hospital is nursing driven, and builds nurses to become highly skilled individuals.


    The hospital has been going through a lot of changes, which may push employees to having to work differently and be more engaged. Not everyone can be so adaptive.

    Advice to Management

    Management, so far, has been nothing unexpected, with some managers being very lenient, others very strict. Everyone does a great job, but the hospital would improve with better collaboration between units, improving the efficiency of resource utilization.
