Anyone Familiar with any of these hospitals?

  1. Hi all, I am a new graduate from an RN program in south florida (treasure coast area). I take my boards in 2 weeks and have started the interveiw process with several area hospitals. Unfortunately, I have only done clinicals at one of them.... So I was just wondering if anyone has worked at any of these hospitals, known someone who did, been a patient there, etc. and could give me any input. Any comments, good or bad would be greatly appreciated

    Sebastian River Medical Center, Sebastian
    Indian River Medical Center, Vero Beach
    Lawnwood Regional Medical Center, Fort Pierce
    Raulerson Hospital, Okeechobee
    Martin Memorial Medical Center, Stuart

    Thanks,

    Lindsay

    Ok I live in this area - first off this is a great area to live in!

    I work in Indain River Medical Center - have been there a year now and love it. It is 335 beds and not for profit. They treat the staff well (well they do on my floor) Everyone is freidnly and I have only had one slight run in with one doctor in a year - otherwise everyone is very friendly! Good place to work.

    Sebastian Hopsitla I have heard is another good hopsital too - not sure how many beds off the top of my head but it is smaller than Indian River...but I have heard it is good too.

    Not heard much about Lawnwood in Fort Pierce.

    Raulerson in Okechobee is a very small hospital - something like 150 beds.....very nice little town - well I liked it! Dont know much about the hospital but I have had some pt's that come from Okechobee to Indian River and it is a good hours drive away.

    Martin Memorial I havent heard much about either...

    Hope that helps - if you need more info email me!
