Wonderful place to work. Although stressful at times, management team was absolutely wonderful, helpful and very caring in every aspect of the job. The most enjoyable part of the job was not only our team, but seeing the patients on our unit get stronger and healthier everyday!!
Great team, excellent management team, very rewarding
it was fast paced but overall good way of learning about the medical field.
Sterile Processing Technician (Former Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – July 27, 2017
The job at first is a little challenging if you have zero experience. However, it is a good feeling you have knowing you are doing something important to help a patient with out having direct contact with them.
It openned doors to get certifications, medical training and get scholarships to go to school.
Understaffed the work is cut-throat, fast paced and stressful.
patient care (Former Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – July 5, 2017
In my tenure at fawcett I experienced a bullying culture with a tyrant manager. Punitive hostile backstabbing culture. Management (males)also shows a lot of sexism towards women and favors men. I have never seen or experienced abuse such as this. I do not recommend a this hospital. There are other opportunities. Move on, you will thank me.
Some good coworkers
Management top heavy. Punitive hostile environment
Staff RN, Relief Charge Nurse, CPOE Support Staff (Former Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – June 14, 2017
Probably the best hospital in our area. Busy hospital with a lot of very smart staff members. Very fast paced and busy, sometimes too heavy of patient loads, but still not as bad as others I've heard of.
I would work for Fawcett Memorial till my retirement if the area was more family with young children friendly.
Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee) – Port Charlotte, Florida – February 24, 2017
A typical day at work varies due to rotating different areas of the hospital, i.e ortho patients in the morning and neuro patients in the afternoon. I learn new things everyday, assisting the PT with evaluating the post hospital plan of care. I feel my management team is very knowledgeable and they are very approachable with all and any questions. The culture at Fawcett Memorial is non punitive. The hardest part of my job is not being able to fulfill the wishes of the patients and families at certain times. The most enjoyable part of the job is watching patients improve their overall independence with my guidance.
A great workplace
No opportunity to become full time with full benefits
RN (Former Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – August 23, 2016

Emergency Room Registrar (Current Employee) – Port Charlotte, FL – August 12, 2016
While in this position I witness several unprofessional traits from management to include gossip about other employees. Also they had too many employees on staff and would not give more than a couple days work to each.
A typical day at Fawcett Memorial Hospital, involves scheduling patients, chart reviews, evaluating patients' activities of daily living (ADLS), perception, cognition, etc, and treatment to address specific deficits that hinder their ADLS. The director of the rehab and acute care facility has an "open door policy" so that anyone who has concerns, or wants to chat, is welcome to do so at any time. This policy creates a healthy work environment between employees and management.
