I Love Lane Testimonials

"I love Lane because working at Lane is not like going to work with co-workers, it’s like spending time with family which really makes taking care of patients a joy rather than a job.  It really makes me feel proud when I’m out in the community and someone notices that I work at Lane.  Then they tell of the wonderful treatment they or their family members received as a patient."
–Tanya Bates; Special Procedures


"I love Lane because we are a smaller facility with a bigger heart.  Teamwork is what Lane focuses on!"
–Rhonda Beauchamp; Patient Financial Services


"It is a small facility therefore you are able to come to know the staff and physicians.  This makes it a very comfortable place to be when you can’t be at home.  After 10 years it has become a comfort zone that is hard to leave.  Nursing administration has always praised my strengths and tolerated my weaknesses.  Avenues for change have always been open."
–Sherri Brady, RN; Diabetes Management

"I love Lane because it is the only hospital where I get to take care of my friends, my neighbors, my parents and my children.  Lane is a family taking care of our community.  What separates Lane from other hospitals is the personal element.  There is not a stranger amongst the staff.  I know everyone by name, regardless of department and they know me.  That also applies to our patients.  I don’t pass a person in the hall that I don’t speak to and it is returned.  You won’t find this at larger institutions.  We are a growing, progressive medical center that maintains the small town feeling and fundamentals."
–Jason Gwyn, RN; Day Surgery

We have a true team approach for improving the quality of care and outcomes for our patients.  The Leadership Team is always searching for ways to improve our patient outcomes, employee satisfaction and community image.  Our CEO and unit directors are always very visible and accessable."

"I grew up in Baker. Lane hired me in a clerical position in 1971 and employed me part time through my last four semesters of nursing school in 1976.  Lane has given me opportunities to diversify my career over the years and encouraged my professional growth as a Registered Nurse.  I could choose to work elsewhere in Baton Rouge, but why?  With very good physicians on staff and a diversity of services offered, I am proud to be a part of an organization committed to providing quality healthcare services to our community."

I can honestly say after working at Lane there is no other hospital I would rather be."

"I am proud to be a nurse at Lane because they are located in a close knit community with values and integrity.  These values are carried over into the hospital by the employees of the Lane.  When I first became a nurse 6 years ago, I was very unsure of my abilities, but an RN that was my preceptor took me in under her wings and helped me to grow as a nurse.  That is the way all of the staff at Lane is – opened armed and willing to help their fellow co-workers. I hope to continue to grow as a nurse here with my Lane family."
