Default West Florida Hospital

Tell me what you know about it as a place to work (nurse/Doctor) and what type hospital it is. Brother is considering a move.

I think that all the rooms are private and I have heard good things about the care. My personal dealings with WF Hospital and their affiliates is that they are a little more expensive to have blood testing, etc. done than their competitors even with my insurance. I do appreciate the urgent care facility. It is one of the better ones to get you in and out.

As for employment a nurse that I know who worked at Sacred Heart moved over there to be a surgical nurse. She liked West Florida Hospital better than the other but when we asked why she didn't want to say what happened. Since then she married and moved to Boston. So, it wouldn't do me any good to call her for you.

Thanks for the information. Good to know about the urgent care and it's a good place to work. It would be nice to have lil brother back from up north and a good place to keep my boat would be nice lol

had bad experiences there on two separate occasions in the emergency room. Once with my daughter and once with me where I was transported by ambulance, finally got up off the bed and had the wife take me to the Navy Hospital. I do know some top notch specialist there though. Once out of the ER, my daughter has some fantastic care. The wife and I both had lasik there in the eye clinic too and they were great.

The facility is owned by HCA (hospital corporation of America) national company with a solid financial portfolio!

If your brother can get a good job at WF Hospital and feels confident in staying, this is a good place to live. It is a tough place to live if you don't have a job but I guess that is true for most places.

I have worked there for 1 1/2 yrs as a nurse and can honestly say that I love it. I have been a nurse for 9 yrs and have worked at several different hospitals and like this one the best. They won't be disappointed. What kind of nurse is your family member (specialty)?
