    I have been working at Lewis-Gale Medical Center part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Training Opportunities abound
    Proactive Scheduling in that you can plan a life outside of work. Schedules are done 30 days in advance.
    Competitive pay scale.

    Cons

    Elements above local management level (HCA Corporate) are not familiar with core competencies needed for security/law enforcement operations.
    Logistical and Operational support from
    HCA is lacking. HR is incapable of posting positions in a timely manner or accelerating hiring process when department is critically short staffed.
    High Turnover rate at Senior Management Level is a cause for concern... Disrupts operations and continuity for long term strategic vision of department's structure, goals, and mission.

    Advice to Management

    Fight for employees and get them tools and resources they need. Provide purpose, motivation, and direction.

    "They pay nurses better than the other guy"

    I worked at Lewis-Gale Medical Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They have a better market pay scale for nurses. The other guy I hear oays their nurses very bad and I wonder if thats why we get a lot of the ABSN students from Jefferson. They are the most sought after and lewis gale does lat well. Good team work environment as well. I like my manager.

    Cons

    Sometimes problems are not resolved as fast as we would like them to be solved, but I understand it takes time to improve things. The marketing could also be a bit better as well to attract nurses even more than we already do.

    Pros

    It's a nice hospital and the nurses are super. They are overworked like crazy and it's not fair. The rapporg between staff is great

    Cons

    It is very money driven. The new CEO is a numbers guy. If you don't bring in the patients yourself. You get fired.

    Advice to Management

    Stop focusing on making money only. Support your physicians and nurses. Spend some money to bring in patients to the clinic

    Constantly understaffed! No sense that employees were important for any other reason but to bring in the buck!

    Listen, with more than your ears, to what your staff is saying!
