REGISTRAR (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – November 12, 2018
The company itself is a wonderful place to work with amazing benefits. There are a few in management in a few departments that have been there for many years that need to be revitalized or replaced. Over all can be a great place to work.

Phlebotomist (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – October 19, 2018
Busy and challenging, yet rewarding place to work. I learned a lot about Medical Technology and the Test. Management is very fair. Awesome place to work. Hardest part of the job, "Code Blue", and the patient not making it. Enjoyable part of the job, "The patients"!
Very good place to work. Great opportunity for advancements and furthering education .
Medical Assistant (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – September 22, 2018
I have enjoyed working for Longview Regional. I started out on the floor working as a Certified Nursing Assistant now I’m a Medical Assistant. I find enjoyment in what I do. Longview Regional has provide me with ways to advance within the company through personal training.
Lack of support and no manager back up or authority
Medical Receptionist/Front Desk (Current Employee) – Longview, TX – July 31, 2018
Manager does not like conflict so she does not make people follow rules and discipline them for wrong doings. Fellow employees will stab you in back and friend at same time. Too many chiefs not enough indians
Critical Care Registered Nurse, PCU (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – July 2, 2018
Flexible hours but difficult nurse to patient rations when I worked there. Unit staff utilized team work approach when short staffed. Hospital had great medical benefits and discounts for medical care at CHS facilities.
Learned a great deal working here. First hospital I worked at that did neuro cases. Worked for 5 years as prn, then changed to full time. Made a lot more money as a full time employee plus great PTO benefits. Also worked a weekend “in house” and was off the whole next week except having to come in and do robot cases occasionally.
it was a learning experience. I learned a lot in transcription and also medical terminology. Corporation was CHS and the corporation was money based and that was a problem. The safety of patients and caring of patients is extremely important in my opinion.
I love working at LRMC. My co-workers and immediate manager are phenomenal people who work hard and love their job. I have learned a lot and have a lot of opportunity for career growth. There is a HUGE lack of pay and raises at this facility.
Medical Laboratory Technologist (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – January 25, 2018
Nights here started with taking report as relief staff, progressed into quality controls and patient testing, occasional phlebotomy, or code call, and ended at a much faster pace with the morning run before shift change.
The workflow was either extremely slow or full speed ahead. There was no in between.It kept things interesting, and I learned to do maintenance and inventory in the slow times.
Management did a good job of accomodating schedules and heading off situations before they became problems. This included things like ordering extra inventory in seasons that had proven to be more productive in the past. This prevented shortages and sometimes allowed us to barter with other facilities for future services.
Cross department communication created a positive work environment.
The hardest part of this job was being in two places at one time when called to the Emergency Department for a code.
The most enjoyable part of this job was the relaxed working environment. Everyone had their area of expertise and each contributed accordingly without strife.
