Excellent Company that truly supports the mission and values from the CEO down
Case Manager, Utilization Manager (Former Employee) – Lee County, FL – December 2, 2016
Lee Health is one of the few companies I've worked for in the last 25 years that doesn't just pay lip service to their mission and values. Their primary concern is patient safety comes first. A typical day at work would depend on the day and includes many tasks. Each week on Wednesday, LEAN meeting is conducted using Webinar technology, as all UM staff are telecommuting. Monitoring staff for productivity metrics and staff audit information, and coaching for success is a large part of the job. Troubleshooting difficult accounts, collaborating with other departments, such as business office, financial counselors, Case Management, insurance Case Managers and Medical staff occurs on a daily basis. Supervisors meeting and discuss, prior to distributing changes in policies or workflow, to ensure that messages to all staff are clear and consistent. The hardest part of the job is communicating the daily changes with staff and ensuring all staff are aware, due to telecommuting. Co-workers are very good to work with and work very hard to ensure that they continue to be consistent with messages to staff. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the positive changes in staff when education and constructive feedback are accepted and incorporated job processes.
Staff are a valued resource, LEAN transformation in process, Patient safety is always first, Culture of continual readiness
Communication and collaboration can be challenging when all staff telecommuting
Certified Nursing Assistant Advanced (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – March 17, 2016
I got the opportunity to get 2 other certifications while working here. It is easy to advance to make ever lasting personal relationships. Being a CNA on my unit is very busy, we have a fast turn over and sick patients that require a lot of extra assistance.
Certified Nurse Aid (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – February 18, 2016
A typical day at work would be hectic. It was a neuroscience unit with many trauma patients that needed lots of care. I learned that team work was essential to provide all patients care in a timely manner. Most of the co-workers were team player as well which made the job easier. The management was not as easy to work with. Night shift was always forgotten and extra duties were given to us because management was under the impression patients sleep at night which is not true at all. The best part of my job was see a smile on my patients face and how grateful they were of the care given to them.
PCT (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – February 2, 2016
Doing vitals and checking on patients every four and two hours assisting nurses and physical therapists and transports, I learned responsibility for patients and how to work in a hospital the hardest part of my job was the punitive issues with management.
Emergency Room Volunteer (Former Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – January 12, 2016

Registered Nurse, Home Health Care, Case Manager (Current Employee) – Fort Myers, FL – October 16, 2015
I have been a Registered Nurse for 30 years. Lee Memorial Health system owns every hospital and most of the health care facilities in Lee County. It is difficult to transfer to a different department within the system. I would like to do a different type of nursing and possibly use my Health, Life and Annuity 215 license. I am willing and able to learn a new field of nursing but would be happy with a Home Health position that offered a work / life balance.
good benefit and paid time off package
no work / balance, salaried positions require 50-60 hrs. a week
