Our team there were so professional and great to work with. We made a difference in everyone's life from ER to patient rooms and Dietary great cooks, physicians and nurse. Our Human Resource team were awesome. We all became a big family.
Having worked at Westside Hospital for almost 25 years I can say that the culture here is really great. Westside is a small facility with about 80 beds, a busy emergency room and a labor and delivery unit. You don't have to work here very long to feel as though you part of a family rather than just an employee. Westside has earned recognition as a top 100 workplace.

A typical day at work would be arriving on time and working in an uplifting and positive environment. I am always up to learning new things and love a new challenge. I am a team player who gives quality work and likes to leave work knowing I exceeded in doing my best.

I liked working at Lovelace Hospital. Most people are easy to work with. The manager I work with tries to support the staff. New rules for the National Standards of care have come out in the last few years, and there are no longer two labor and delivery nurses on duty at all times which makes it hard because the labor and delivery nurse must care for all the labor patients and the postpartum nurses are not trained in labor so if there is an emergency you are kind of on your own.
I enjoyed working at Lovelace Westside Hospital mostly because of the employees I worked with. Everyone was nice and most of them were team players. There was alot of problems with management and nursing. The patients were the best part. I always enjoyed talking with them while doing their therapy. The only thing I didnt care for was working alone when it was real busy. We only had one therapist a shift to cover the entire hospital, ie.. ER, ICU, Peds, Floors. L and D, and any outpatients that arrived for holter monitors.
Lovelace was a fun place to work where mostly everyone got along and was caring and out going. My work day consisted of registering Emergency patients. The nursed and doctors on the night shift where very positive and encouraging with a no nonsense kind of attitude. With Lovelace they have a very stict collection policy. At times this policy did make it difficult to work and enjoy your job and have the desire to help people. However it was mandatory for us to collect on all patient that owed anything for the current visit or past visits. My co-workers made this job very enjoyable and fun through the worst of time and the best of times.

It is pretty hard to run a hospital without doctors. Abq Health parteners has by contract seperated themselves from Lovelace Hospitals and the Lovelace insurance. I understand many employees are being flexed or censused and not being able to hit a full work week. This problem is evident through out the Lovelace system. (Main, Women's, and Westside)
great small hospital that has a small town feel. great people.
short on hours and no real direction on the future.
