An Average Healthcare Org with Some Above Average People
Performance Excellence IT Specialist (Current Employee), Fergus Falls, MN – December 20, 2012
Lake Region is an organization that genuinely cares about its patients and is striving to remain independent in a rapidly-consolidating industry.
Management does not often involve non-management in decision making, creating a culture of frustration for highly-skilled individuals in non-management positions. Nevertheless, there are a small but significant – more... number of highly dedicated employees committed to their work and the organization as a whole.
Unfortunately, its financial constraints make it difficult to advance or for the organization to offer highly competitive compensation or benefits. This is somewhat offset by the town of Fergus Falls itself, which is a very lovely small town worth living in. – less

Pros: great coworkers
Cons: watch your back
Since their merger with FFMG a couple of years ago, many incredibly talented and experienced employees have been terminated or run out of their jobs. Don't question administration. Employees are on egg shells and doctors are unhappy. Morale is in the gutter. Patient care is great, but that doesn't make it a great place to work.
It just isn't the same – more... company it was 5 years ago. – less
A hospital that strives for the best patient care.
RN (Former Employee), Bridgeway – December 15, 2011
Pros: health benefits, wellness program for staff, focuses on accountability, helpful and want staff to succeed, involved in the community.
Cons: documentation program needs improvement, needs more staff education opportunities.
When a patient enters the Hospital they are not just a number. Patients are encouraged to participate in their plan of care. Patients and their families are cared for with compassion and dignity. Lake region healthcare is recognized for their positive performance in a national hospital ratings system that addresses the new challenges created by health-care – more... reform. – less
