    I have been working at Lawrence Memorial Hospital (Lawrence) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people, including the management are great and you really feel like you are part of a small community rather than a cog in a machine. People know you name and appreciate what you do.

    Cons

    From an IT perspective, issue priority can be difficult due to the impact to patient care that some issues can present. Users have issues understanding workload and factors that can delay issue resolution.

    Advice to Management

    While work is important, it is not the most important. Employees have lives and other priorities too.

    I have been working at Lawrence Memorial Hospital (Lawrence) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a 100 top hospital for multiple years in a row. Good health insurance. Nice environment.

    Cons

    High turnover for many RNs and upper management. People who should be fired aren't let go and they don't contribute to the team work.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to fire people. Be more relatelatable to higher management. They don't know the work flow enough when trying to make changes from the bottom up.

    Location, salary, benefits, cafeteria are great for employees. Highly rated facility for Truven Health listing. Electronic/computerized documentation and medication access stations.

    Give new staff, especially nurses, a more comprehensive orientation to their units.

    Pros

    I have seen a lot of changes at LMH in my years and never has the culture and stability of this organization has never been better. LMH has been good to me, affording me opportunities I would never dream of attaining and I believe there is no better place to work than here.

    Cons

    It's health care, there are always challenges, challenges are our business. However, we are a stand alone, non-profit hospital, if you are looking for end of the year bonus' and performance raises, you need to look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
