Charge Nurse (Former Employee), Lewisville, TX – July 23, 2015
Pros: Close-knit and team-oriented coworkers; Magnet-status
Cons: Short-staffed; Poor management on developing unit connected w/ MCL
Nursing can be a very demanding and stressful profession. However, it is substantialy easier to handle with such helpful and knowledgeable coworkers, as those at Medical Center of Lewisville (MCL). On more days than not, your day is over just as quickly as it began; in other words, the job is very upeat and fast-paced. Patient-to-nursing ratios depend upon acuity and unit, but are generally acceptable and safe. There is always oppurtunity for advancement for hard-working and highly accountable seeking individuals. Management, for the most part, is very accessable and involved with staff; with exception of a relatively new unit that is connected to the main hospital. MCL just received Magnet status early in 2015. Since, this hospital is a small, but expanding, community-based hospital it is very close-knit and has family-like feel that is highly welcoming!

Pros: nurses are great
Cons: bad management
It was a great place to work until the current management took over.If you have an opinion on how you think the department should be run forget it. The current management only wants it there way. You also must watch what you say to fellow employees if there feelings are hurt you are gone.

Horrible management. An arrogant group that don’t have enough sense to get in out of the rain and yet sit around and pat themselves on the back all while forcing employees to perform 2-3 full time positions. Ask for help and you’re not a team player and will be black balled. Deceitful, conniving and worst of all will set your career back 10 years.
I only worked at Medical Center of Lewisville for six months due to being internally promoted to Medical City of Dallas Hospital but gained a lot while I was there. I learned a great deal about shipping and receiving, purchasing, and customer service.
Kitchen Supervisor (Former Employee), Lewisville, TX – July 14, 2013
you learn that there's a lot about working in a hospital kitchen ,the fact that you learn people are allergic to a lot of things ,meeting the doctors ,nurses ,board members ,and other staffs was a good experience
I have learned so much from working at this hospital. I was fortunate to be a part of starting the cardiovascular services, and being able to care for patients after cath lab procedures and CABG surgery. I have also seen and learned so much from the wide variety of patients that come to the ICU. The management is great, but some times can be over involved. The co workers are awesome and are extremely helpful. Team work is one of the things I like about this hospital. The hardest part of the job is the small tasks that get in the way of being able to spend the most time with the patients. But seeing the patients recover, that is the reward.
