Staff Pharmacist (Former Employee), carlsbad nm – May 31, 2014
great pharmacy staff. very knowledgeable and friendly. taught me many new things in hospital pharmacy. overall is a smaller hospital and the worst part is the location Carlsbad NM. Not ideal unless you grew up there or family etc. Depressing town personally. And the computer systems were a bit outdated hospital wide.

I learned how to be a Cardiac Nurse at this facility, I am forever grateful to those who took the time to mentor me. However this poor facility has gone through many changes and is now suffering because of it. It is a shame. Many of the great people that worked there have left, but some have remained. I look forward to the day that this facility recovers – more... from its wounds of change. I would be proud to be part of this organization again, after some house cleaning and redirection. – less

Financial Counselor (Former Employee), Albuquerque, NM – December 17, 2012
Pros: being able to help people
Cons: having to deny patients
My job was very high paced and stressful but rewarding at the same time. I loved the interaction with patients and loved being able to help the uninsured.
The hardest part of my job was having to deny a patients surgery because they were not insured and I could not find them help in funding the surgery. This did not happen often but when it did it – more... was very difficult. – less
I worked while the best hospital became the worst.

Pros: night time differential was high.
Cons: we were following crazy rules from a person who didn't understand the job.
When I started working at Lovelace on Gibson, I could easily give five stars for each section above. By the time I left from Lovelace Downtown, the ratings had dropped to this. My manager had no experience on the job and didn't learn anything about it. Ardent had purchased Lovelace and St. Josephs and was busy integrating and ruining the health systems. – more... Last month Albuquerque Health Partners freed themselves from the Ardent Lovelace. Ardent ran us on the bottom line; produce money at the expense of care. They had me doing the jobs previously of four people; plus they complicated that to the point of ridiculous. All the employees were stressed or "travelers." I kept holding on to the memory of better days before Ardent until it became impossible. The people I met there through the years were the best; though most of them left when Ardent took over. – less
