      I worked at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center full-time

      Pros

      The ortho doctors are great to work with.

      Cons

      Being a for profit hospital, they really do not treat their nurses that well.

      I worked at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The level of dedication of the medical staff and commitment to their patients well being was a highlight of working at the hospital.

      Cons

      Due to changes at the federal level, all hospitals are struggling to meet their financial requirements. This is as true at PSL as it is at most other hospitals who derive most of their payment for services from government sources, as such, staffing is tighter than it probably should be especially at the administrative level.

      Pros

      Location, Medical Staff, attempting to update facility

      Cons

      Poor pay, Poor Benefits, Poor Pay

      Advice to Management

      Be competitive with paying staff. PSL lags extremely behind other hospitals in the area.

        I worked at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        High level complex care for specific conditions; excellent medical staff

        Cons

        CEO is focused only on her own image and appearance, not on patient care or physician satisfaction. Administration turnover has been continuous (CMOs, CFOs, COOs, VPs, dept. directors) since her move from another hospital to P/SL, and employees walk on egg shells due to her emotional volatility and lack of sensible and clear direction. As a result, negative culture is driven by fear and confusion. She is also CEO of...

        Advice to Management

        Organizational leadership at parent company, HCA, should look closely at the culture, turnover, and physician/employee satisfaction at P/SL and RMHC to see that the corporate mission is just a tag line for this CEO. There are good leaders in supporting roles at both hospitals, but they are held back by her insanity.

          I worked at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center full-time for less than a year

          Pros

          Ok benefits, our manager was really kind and helpful whenever she could!

          Cons

          Understaffing was a constant problem. No CNA's to help nurses! I would NOT recommend working here based on my experiences. Supplies were low and patients rooms were messy.

          Advice to Management

          STAFF ENOUGH RN'S AND CNA'S! The work environment was incredibly stressful without the help of CNA's. How do you expect nurses to be safe with understaffing? Increase the hourly rate because $24/hr is far too low for a RN, especially when you take advantage of us without adequate staff! It's not fair to feel like a slave in 2018.
