Foster parent at laurel heights
THERAPUTIC FOSTER PARENT (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMarch 13, 2018
Laurel heights hospital is a good place to receive children that are in foster care. The staff is friendly and respective of all foster parents.

Staff matched children up closely with families that would be responsible for taking care of these children.

Misleading
Case Management (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 15, 2018
Initially, I believed that LHH was a great place to work. However, the longer I worked there; I become aware of its flaws that were unsettling.

1. You must use your PTO for holidays.
2. Poor communication amongst CEO, CFO, HR, etc.
3. No increase in compensation if additional licenses/qualifications are received.
4. Not a person-centered facility, very money driven.
5. Does not practice by its "policy," appears that they make up the rules as they go.

Great place for starting your career, but not a place to work long term.
Pros
Benefits and flexible
Cons
poor communication and low pay

Specialized hospital for children and adolescents
Mental Health Associate (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAFebruary 20, 2017
Providing psychiatric and behavioral care to the clients has been extremely rewarding. You learn a lot about patience and understanding mental illness on another level. Their are both pros and cons of this specialized hospital. One of the most enjoyable parts is watching and helping some of the kids grow and learn to successfully adapt back into the community with their mental illnesses.

Great Place to Work
Hospitalist Nurse Practitioner (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAJanuary 7, 2017
Challenging yet rewarding to work with children with autism.....Not for everyone. UHS is a leader in healthcare in the US, As Laurel Heights teammate, you may transfer to another UHS facility nationwide
I would encourage anyone to work there.
Pros
Room for professional growth

Challenging patients

DIRECT SUPPORT PROFESSIONAL (PRN) (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GAOctober 4, 2015
Individuals are priority, as that should be but staff is under heard and understaffed. Not much team-players even though its to your advantage to do so to keep the individuals taken care of properly.
