    Pros

    Family-style atmosphere. Great retention of employees. Many have been there 20+ years. Plenty of opportunities for learning and advancement. Management is very approachable, even up to the CNO.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better. Insurance isn't the greatest. Low match for 401k. Certain units are understaffed. Not enough environmental service help. Cafeteria could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe listen more to what employees have to say. Have anonymous suggestion boxes available. Slightly higher pay would help with retention and prevent losing staff to hospitals further south that pay higher.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at St. Lucie Medical Center part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working in the ER is good for resumes and experience, some fun people to work with too.

    Cons

    Everything is bass ackwards here. As a paramedic, this is the 2nd lowest starting pay I've seen in the entire state of FL. $12.40 an hour, I asked for $13 they said $12.92. Per diem was $13.70, which to my knowledge is the lowest PRN rate for a medic in FL.

    And for the meager salary you run your face off. You will never sit down for more than 30 minutes that you get for lunch.

    The ER is poorly run, and light years behind the times in terms of technology.

    There's a reason HCA is being investigated by the FTC - don't risk your reputation here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a living wage: you get what you pay for - poor wages means poor attitudes with no incentive to work. Upgrade and streamline your technology. Make sure everyone is trained and ready to use your systems before you throw them to the wolves in the ER - I spent half my time asking people to print blood draw labels because you clowns can't even think to print them at registration...

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at St. Lucie Medical Center full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, career opportunity and a well structured organization. I learned many applications that I use later in my career.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Perhaps only my personal situation which was that of an employee transferred from a previous owner of the healthcare facility acquired by St Lucie Medical. The only disadvantage is that there were many changes that were not too favorable.

    I worked at St. Lucie Medical Center (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Only pro is opportunity to work with patients.

    Cons

    Inadequate Staffing, poor management, and lack of care for patients. A disgrace to healthcare facility.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the reason this facility exists, to provide "healthcare" to "patients" in need.
