Ever been here?

  1. Has anyone ever lived in or been to Ewa Beach on Oahu? I'm thinking of taking a job at Hawaii Medical Center-West (formerly St. Francis). Just want to hear any info about the area. Is it safe? Is there surfing close by? Any info would be appreciated! Mahalo

    I would avoid both of the hospitals-formerly-known-as-St. Francis for a while.

    They have fired most of their ancillary staff. I know many of the nurses who work at Liliha and they say the place is a mess. And West has always been worse than Liliha.

    hi everybody!

    total newbie here--know nothing about the situation.

    would somebody consider giving me the reader's digest version of what's wrong with these hospitals?

    i'm just so curious...

    many thanks!

    Is it easy to get around in Ewa Beach? I don't have a car.
