Current Employee - Nurse in Lake Wales, FL
Current Employee - Nurse in Lake Wales, FL

Pros

It is closed to my home. Other than that, the colleagues are very friendly and have a spirit of teamworking. If you want to work either Heart of Florida, Bartow or LWMC, LWMC is better choice to go. Second one is Bartow Hospital, the least is Heart of Florida. ER of Heart of Florida is always flooded with patients. Somtimes it is having 20 holding patients in ER. PCU in HOF is busier and having very sick patients too. My manager in LWMC is pretty good and allows flexibility in scheduling our roster. She is friendly and helpful. She is willing to cross train you if you want.

Cons

The patient to nurse ratio is 7:1 in PCU, very dangerous

    I worked at Lake Wales Medical Center full-time

    Pros

    Employees generosity to the community with food drives, school supply supplies, etc.

    Cons

    Senior level management changed in recent years and they only care about being a feeder facility for their sister hospital in Davenport. If you voice disagreement with a decision, you are labeled a “disgruntled employee”. Senior level management no longer participates in community food drives, school supplies, etc.
