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

    Pros

    Good insurance benefits, wonderful Assistant Director, great doctors

    Cons

    Entirely too much responsibility for the pay amount and working 8 until 5 isn't enough time to meet the demands of my patients which is the reason I like what I do.

    Advice to Management

    Don't make empty promises, spread the work load and you will see a big change in staff turn around.

    Pros

    Small community hospital, people are friendly and easy going.

    Stop the practice of nepotism and move into the 21st century best practice guidelines.

    Pros

    The people that work there are very friendly and for the most part it is a propitious environment to work at.

    Cons

    Springs is a small hospital. If your looking for any experience or action a larger city might be more appropriate for you.

    Advice to Management

    Generally the manager of any department should at least have work in, be familiar, and experienced in the field they are managing. 3-5 years minimum.

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

    Pros

    This is the first company in 10 years to support my continuing education costs. The salary is above average for the area, and benefits are on par with the surrounding community.

    Cons

    It is a small town hospital with small town politics. There is also more of a small town expectation of professionalism. Lancaster is a solid 40 minutes from any urban development, and is at the heart of a Medcaid county and all which that entails for a medical practitioner.
