Surgical Tech II (Former Employee), SurgeryNovember 10, 2014
Pros: management going out of their way to help all employees.
Cons: retireing
Southwest General is a wonderful place to work. Each day you are greeted with compassion. Your peers become your family. Management is tuned into your needs. They are more than happy to help you with more education, and any needs you may need to help get your job done right. The hardest part of my job was to retire.

Great place to work. I am here only 4-6 hours per week and everyone is great.
EEG Technologist On-Call (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXOctober 8, 2014
Pros: no direct supervision, i know what needs to be done and i do it, everyone is very nice, employee discount in the cafeteria., a relaxed working environment.
Cons: location, to far from home, spend too much on gas for a few hours of work.
I come in on the weekends, I check for EEG procedures to be done. On a typical day, I can do between 3 and 4 procedures. I set up my equipment and go and perform the EEG studies. I've met a lot of great people working on the patient floors and the ICU. All the patients are done at the bed side. The patients are either in their room, the intensive care or the emergency center. I enjoy this type of work because of the diversity and the challenge. My co-workers are very nice, everyone gets along and there is no one breathing down your neck. You are responsible for your work as it comes in and everyone does what they have to do. The EEG lab in in the Cardio-Pulmonary area so there are other technical staff which are very nice to talk to. The hardest part of my job is waiting around for EEG orders to come in. the most enjoyable part of my job is the difficult Intensive Care patients. I know I am providing a service for them and sometimes it is challenging because of their condition. I like this, I enjoy taking care of them and doing the best I can under unusual circumstances.

Registered Nurse, Labor and delivery unit (Former Employee), middleburg heightsAugust 10, 2014
The hospital is a small community hospital and after working at a large Cleveland Clinic facility it is apparent that Southwest has a less experiences management crowd.

MLT (ASCP) (Former Employee), San Antonio, TXFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: good employees and friendly atmosphere.
Cons: bad hospital politics
Southwest General fortunately, has good employees but not valued. Laboratory is not state of the art and require better technology. Benefits have been downgraded and therefore we loose our providers whom we have become to value their treatments. The hardest part of the job is trying to meet "turn around times" with malfunctioning equipment. Bad leadership within the company. Low paying wages. Southwest General needs to step up their game.

crazy busy emergency room- great experience
Registered Nurse (Current Employee), Middleburg Heights, OHSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: the satisfaction of a challenge met
Cons: no time for breaks or lunches.
a typical day at the ER is like taking a spin on the wheel of fortune. You never know what will walk in the door. We see an incredible variety of acuity from all walks of life. There is typically no time to sit down and relax and rarely any breaks, but the feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day is worth it.

Current: Externship (Current Employee), Strongsville, OHApril 1, 2013
Although I am not employed there, My externship here has already shown me that this facility is organized, as well as a productive and great place to be at.

The management is well structured, the co-workers are extremely friendly, and a typical day at work is busy but runs smoothly.
