Food and Nutrition cook (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – February 16, 2016
A typical day at work at Lawrence Memorial Hospital was a very fun and professional atmosphere. It was always a learning experience from prepping an assortment of ingredients for the patients as well for the customer. Management was respectful and knowledgeable, with the willingness to help others. My co workers were also knowledgeable about recipes and the dietary need of the patients and the healthy living that represents the hospital. The hardest part of my job at Lawrence Memorial would have to be estimating the number of patients that would be emitted into the hospital that would be obligated to have a meal. The most enjoyable part of my job is to see the happiness of the customer after eating something that I created.
Patient Account Rep/Patient Access Registrar (Current Employee) – Walnut Ridge, AR – January 20, 2016
A typical day at work includes pre-registering patients and verifying their insurance, getting their charts ready for the Dr, tracking tests and placing test results on patient charts for the Dr to review, registering patients as they arrive for appointments, making sure appropriate documents are signed by the patient and placed in their charts, answering the phone, scheduling appointments, and customer service.
Management does not handle personnel issues properly. They play favorites and if you are not one of the favorites they make life intolerable for you.
Co-workers do not work as a team.
The most enjoyable part of my job is interaction with the patients.
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – New London, CT – July 5, 2016
In the 15 months of working at Lawrence & Memorial, the employees of Westerly Hospital had much more transition that the average employee. Westerly Hospital was purchased by L&M and we the finance department was relocated to their hospital. Poor management or lack of due to temporary management and management that knew nothing about the hospital reimbursement. Each hospital had different software etc etc...

spent the majority of my career here with a lot of wonderful professionals.was encouraged to increase my education and offered monetary assistance to do so. had a great benefit plan is a union based facility
High stressed environment for medical staff and non medical staff alike
worker (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – July 11, 2016
Directors don't give a hoot about their employees. HR is a joke. There seems to be high turn over for a reason. There's a lot of entitled people working there, who think the rules don't apply to them. There's many two faced people. Anyone who works here better keep their heads down, and their mouths shut if they want to survive.
PC Analyst/Technician, Information Services (Former Employee) – New London, CT – September 2, 2015
I enjoyed my position the work hours scheduled was flexible, as it allowed me to take my daughter to school. I Installed, maintained, and upgraded numerous PC systems and servers and software. As well as test and review software and hardware. Aside from the department CIO’s unwillingness to improve our services to the departments as recommended by Connecticut Hospitals Association (CHA), it was a pleasure to work at the hospital.
Emergency Department RN (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – July 4, 2016
Lawrence Memorial Hospital was a great place to work, and I remained there for 13 years until moving to Charleston, SC. If I could have scooped the facility and its people up and taken it all with me to my new home, I would have!
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Walnut Ridge, AR – July 30, 2016
A typical day at work I would do rounds, change all the residents, get them ready to eat, feed them and put them to bed. Management is good but does not work with your schedule. Co-workers are all mostly good workers.
Guest Service Representative (Former Employee) – Lawrence, KS – September 17, 2015
A typical day at working for Unidine at Lawrence Memorial Hospital usually starts early as you serve the hospital's patients breakfast. You are in charge of getting all meals to patients, communicating with nurses to stay up-to-date on the patients' dietary needs. You are also in charge of managing their diet and watching their intake levels of certain things that the doctor has drawn caution to. The environment is up-beat and requires high energy and often leaves you tired at the end of a shift, the shifts are scheduled in 6 hour or 12 hour blocks which served as the hardest part of the job. Getting to interact with each of the patients, nurses, and hospital staff was the most enjoyable part of the day.
This can be an interesting place to work. Like any other place your supervisor sets the tone for the enviroment.
Surgery Waiting Receptionist/Facilitator (Current Employee) – Lawrence, KS – February 3, 2016
I have worked in a couple of areas at LMH as a volunteer. I have enjoyed working there since I have started. There are always work that needs to be done and the variety of jobs available should appeal a wide range of individuals-from paperwork/organizing to interacting with the public.
Mid sized regional hospital, ideal place to start a career.
Server and Storage Administrator (Current Employee) – New London, CT – September 30, 2015
A great place to start your career. It would be best to learn what you can and plan on moving in 3-5 years. Upward mobility at the hospital is limited.
Your local group of co-workers will be supportive. Challenges in the healthcare landscape can make work here very challenging. It is important to not take things personally and try to focus on daily accomplishments.
Try to attach to and learn from knowledgeable peers.
Excellent position and co-workers with hospital downsizing no job secutiry

20 yrs ago, I would not of recommended this hospital to my fellow nurses
Registered Nurse, Medical Telemetry (Former Employee) – Medford, MA – January 16, 2016
20 years ago this hospital was unsatisfactory. With high patient/nurse ratio's and poor support for staff/client and staff/physician issues. health insurance and education reimbursement was adequate. Keep in mind that this is one persons opinion/experience. It is my expectation/hope that they have evolved with the times.
