Billing Specialist (Current Employee) – Fergus Falls, MN – May 6, 2017
Most supervisors are helpful and easy to get a long with. There are always positions available within to apply for, but not necessarily considered advancing within the company. Overall good place to work.
Depends on who you are and how well you suck up to management.
CNA (Former Employee) – Nursing – May 2, 2017
The only good part of the job were the tenants. Loved them!! The director is a spineless person. A lot of the people with seniority are bullies and know they can get away with it. Activities leader scolded you and shamed you if you didn't meet up to her standards and she is a snob!
We are very sorry you feel this way. We are always looking for ways to improve our organization for both our patients and our employees. If you would be willing to visit with me, I would like to learn more about your experience at Mill Street. Please call if you are willing!

Job Work/Life Balance
Healthcare Access Representative (Current Employee) – Battle Lake, MN – February 20, 2017
Good company to work for. Wonderful coworkers and patients. One drawback is having to put in a request for a day off 8 weeks in advance. That does make it hard to balance Dr. appointments, etc.
Very Friendly environment and good learning experience
Externship (Former Employee) – Fergus Falls, MN – December 5, 2016
I worked in many departments such as Internal medicine, surgery, family medicine, Registration, Phlebotomy, Autoclaving and laboratory. I learnt many skills from all departments such as Lab skills, patient teaching, surgical assisting, administering injections. I also worked in coding and billing department. The hardest part for me was wrapping instruments in autoclave department. The most enjoyable part was in Phlebotomy/Venipuncture. I worked on more than 100 patients and got succeeded 90%.
Director of Revenue (Former Employee) – Fergus Falls, MN – June 11, 2015
Lake Region was a great culture and work environment where employees were proud to work there and be part of a team collaborative environment. Leadership changes have created job insecurity and increased turnover.
Vice President of Human Resources (Current Employee) – Fergus Falls, MN – April 1, 2013
I love the challenge of working with management and employees to find the balance with various situations between the employee and employer. HR offers many challenges and is ever changing and is why it is a good fit for me.
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 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.
Manager (Former Employee) – Fergus Falls, Minnesota – September 9, 2012
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 company it was 5 years ago.
A hospital that strives for the best patient care.
RN (Former Employee) – Bridgeway – December 15, 2011
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 reform.
health benefits, wellness program for staff, focuses on accountability, helpful and want staff to succeed, involved in the community.
documentation program needs improvement, needs more staff education opportunities.
