    I was at St.Thomas several years ago as a travel nurse…and I agree! I loved it there!

    I hope every hospital on this list starts their RNs out at 30/hr or more. No matter how poor of a state you live in with cheap housing, no RN should be working for less! It is a slap in the face to the profession and an awesome responsibility!

    Just read the article about Houston Northwest being in the top 30 hospitals….I just retired from HNW after 36 years there. Absolutely love the hospital, the staff and the doctors. If I was starting over again in Houston, I couldn’t pick a better place to work!!

    I have worked at Houston Northwest Medical Center since 2001, in the SICU, ER and currently on the Rapid Response Team. It’s a great place to work!

    I have worked at Houston Northwest in Houston, Texas for several years. I could not ask for a better employer. Our administration is focused on quality. The employees treat each other like family! I have been blessed to have a great job at a great place!

    Worked many hospitals over my nursing career, but St Thomas is the best. That is why I have been there 25 years
