LACONIA — Nurse.org, the web’s leading career site for nurses, has recognized Lake Region General Hospital as one of the top hospitals for nurses to work for in New Hampshire. Over the past two years, Nurse.org has collected 165 reviews by nurses at 26 New Hampshire hospitals about their workplace satisfaction. The data from the reviews from New Hampshire state revealed that Lake Region General Hospital has one of the highest levels of job satisfaction among its nurses.

Reviewers cited supportive coworkers, flexible scheduling, and competitive pay as the basis for the 3.2 star rating with 70 percent of the nurses surveyed recommending the hospital as an employer.

Nurse.org Product Manager Phillip Lee congratulated Lake Region General Hospital on this achievement saying, “We’re excited to be able to recognize Lake Region General Hospital for providing an excellent work environment for our nurses. Our survey data shows the hospital ranks in the top 2 percent in the state for nurse job satisfaction. By supporting nurses through an educational hospital where nurses can thrive and be successful, they are leaving a positive impact on their community.”
