    I have been working at West Florida Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a great environment with wonderful people. At the core, it is the people that makes this hospital so wonderful to work at.

    Cons

    Within the Gulf Coast region overall nurse pay is relatively low when compared to other areas. WFH is not immune to such practice and is one of the lower paying off the three big local facilities.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to the people and take their advice regarding policies and procedures. Many believe in the hospital and what it stands for and are willing to do what's best for it's greater good.

    I have been working at West Florida Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture
    Feels like a team, family
    Senior Leadership care about employees
    Committed to patient and family centered care
    Excellent outcomes demonstrating the clinical competence of staff

    Cons

    Being part of a larger corporation such as HCA means information/changes come from people outside of the facility. While all changes are good, sometimes implementation is a challenge. However, having a huge network that spans the entire country is incredibly useful when benchmarking and learning best practices.
