Was my first job moving to Texas. Started out great. Allowed opportunity to cross train in multiple modalities. Radiologists were great to work with. Ended being a typical busy hospital setting with the usual office politics. A lot of good people left.
Cardiopulmonary Supervisor and Educator (Former Employee) – Lewisville, TX – April 20, 2016
The hospital has a welcoming environment and staff is given an opportunity to grow their careers. Co-workers all came together as a team to produce good results for patients. Employees will run while at work but help is found if needed. Exposure to multiple areas of care helps employees grow in their career.
Primarily responsible for managing and assisting the AVP of Musculoskeletal Services and the Director of Rehab Services with administrative and sales support tasks relating to Rehabilitation Department.
lots of walking had 65 patients or more to see 4 days work and 3 days off.. hardest part of my job was not able to give what customer/patient wanted because of there diet ...co-workers where fun to be around helpful and respecful..
I loved the team work and culture as a staff nurse in the Emergency Department of Medical Center of Lewisville. My boss encouraged me to apply for the Clinical Educator position after 8 months in the ED. MCL creates a culture of opportunity and encourages each nurse to continue to grow as a professional. I loved my experience as the Educator at MCL, and am ready for additional growth in the healthcare industry.
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!
Close-knit and team-oriented coworkers; Magnet-status
Short-staffed; Poor management on developing unit connected w/ MCL
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Lewisville, TX – June 26, 2014
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.
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
