    Pros

    Our Standards of Behavior (values) outline each of our actions as healthcare providers in the LGH system. These standards create a positive work environment for our peers and a positive outcome for our patients.

    Cons

    Not one of the higher paying systems in our region, but the difference is made up by getting to work alongside some of the most caring, vibrant, and supportive healthcare workers in the country. Most who negatively review LGH on this particular website/app are the ones who don't fit in our culture. They complain because they haven't adapted to doing more with less and bringing it all back to the patient (the reason we are called to this field).

    Advice to Management

    Hold your employees accountable.
