"The open communication between the hospital and employees makes Lowell General Hospital one of the best places I've ever worked."

Cheryl LaneShe's been a nurse around the country for 30 years and Cheryl finds Lowell General Hospital to be one of the places she's worked. She credits the ongoing and open communication between administration and staff with feeling like she's part of the hospital as well as being empowered to make things better.

The hospital-wide "Daily 10" helps to keep everyone on the same page, sharing in news, accomplishments, developments and changes. For her, knowing that leadership shares such information and welcomes the input from everyone it the organization promotes a sense a value for Cheryl and her co-workers.

"We truly have an opportunity to provide suggestions and ask questions," says Cheryl. "I am comfortable sharing ideas and presenting opportunities to make things even better. That two-way communication between staff and leadership really makes a difference."

As a member of the Nursing Informatics Committee Cheryl communicates updates on the electronic medical records systems and trains new staff at the surgery center, as well as brings suggestions for enhancing the tool. So while she credits the flow of information throughout the organization, Cheryl is part of what makes that all happen - she is part of what make Lowell General Hospital a great place to work and be a patient.
