    I worked at Health Management Associates full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a paycheck... that's about the only pro there is to this place. Not much else to say there.

    Cons

    The hospital is so small that everyone gossips about everyone. No one has anything better to do than stir up the pot. It's sad because patient care comes second to drama. There is nothing nice about the place. There are so many problems and its something new everyday. They by no means have it together. They need a total revamp and its hard to say where to even start with that place. During the time I was there no one communicated with me about anything that was happening in the department. During the time that I was there I learned that they have had 45 nurses in a matter of 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire more staff. In all departments. If you pay people a comparable rate maybe they will be more willing to stay and not go to another facility.

    Pros

    The particular HMA hospital that I worked for was accomodating to working mothers and flexible with scheduling.

    Cons

    The pay rate compared to surrounding hospitals was far less than competitive. Management would act like they cared and that employees opinions mattered but it was clear that they didn't.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become more visible by department rounding and implement a better competitive salary package.
