Just wondering if someone has worked for both here in SW FL. I currently work for HMA (dislike). I am going to an HCA facility..any thoughts?

Also working for an HMA facility and so truly unhappy. I would love to get out but I'm afraid all places will be the same. Would also like to hear about HCA and other nurses' experiences.


Specializes in Telemetry. Has 10 years experience.

i work for hca in Margate. i have been with them about a month. not so bad so far. i came from the northeast. i was pleasantly surprised.


Has 8 years experience.

i work at hca south florida miami area , its the worst pharmacy and med pass are unbearable, very dangerous patient nurse ratios 1;9 1;8 even once 1;10 tele/med surg mix floors

I worked at an HCA hospital for six months and left. Very little support. Of course, it was thirty years ago. But I was a patient, in one, last Christmas. My experience was a good one. The nurses averaged six to eight patients, 7AM to 7PM and eight to ten, 7PM to 7AM. I was satisfied. My SIL was also a patient there, for back surgery, several weeks ago. His experience was good as well. My daughter was a patient, two weeks ago, on the surgical unit. Her experience was terrible.
