    Pros

    The mission at SMH is to improve the quality of life in our community. Everything I do in my job works toward that mission. I love that our leadership keeps that as the focus of what we do here. Our employees truly care for patients and each other.

    Cons

    I've been here for nearly seven years, and the benefits outweigh the cons.

    I worked at Slidell Memorial Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are so nice and helpful, they will become your friends and family. Director was great. Community, nonprofit atmosphere makes you feel like you're contributing to something important.

    Cons

    The CEO is making $473000 per year in this small community nonprofit facility, but most employees haven't had a raise since right after Hurricane Katrina. They blame the high turnover rate on the directors, but really it's because we can go to other facilities and make $4 or $5 more per hour. Shame on the senior management and board for not paying the backbone of the hospital a decent wage while they line their pockets.

    Advice to Management

    If I could give upper management zero stars, I would. The hospital is amazing but YOU are most definitely not. Treat your employees with respect and pay them what they're worth. I thought I would retire from SMH, but now I am glad that I am making more down the street.

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

    Pros

    Great coworkers, good place to learn. Nonprofit community hospital. Family atmosphere. Best NICU, cardiology, cancer center, & ER on the Northshore.

    Cons

    Partnered with Ochsner, but refuses to comment on what jobs will be lost as a result. COO is running for mayor to the detriment of the hospital. It's a very political atmosphere, and you'll get ahead depending on how well you kiss up instead of how much you know.

    Advice to Management

    With the Ochsner partnership, management proved they do not care about the hospital, the employees, or the will of the community who voted not long ago to be overwhelmingly against selling to Ochsner. All they care about is their wallets!
