The commitment of each hospital’s administrators, trustees, physicians and staff to supporting a safe, respectful, productive and quality-driven environment is commendable.
Brentwood, TN (Vocus) September 28, 2010
Two Quorum Health Resources (QHR) hospital clients have been named among Modern Healthcare’s “100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare” for 2010: Allegan General Hospital, a critical access hospital in Allegan, Michigan, and Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center, a critical access hospital in Chanute, Kansas. This is Neosho’s second year on the list, which made its debut only three years ago.
“This is a well-deserved honor for these hospitals,” said QHR President and CEO James L. Horrar. “The commitment of each hospital’s administrators, trustees, physicians and staff to supporting a safe, respectful, productive and quality-driven environment is commendable.”
“Being ranked one of the ‘Best Places to Work in Healthcare’ for the second year in a row validates the efforts of our entire team,” said Neosho Memorial Regional Medical Center CEO Dennis E. Franks.
“I’ve had hospitals from across the country ask how we win awards for our fall prevention program, or how we have the highest physician satisfaction in the nation. Basically, it comes down to having a winning team,” he added. “Our team includes our board, medical staff, employees and QHR. Without their dedication and on-going efforts, we couldn’t achieve our goals: to provide the best care for our patients, the best place to practice medicine for our physicians, and the best environment in which to work for our employees.”
Of the award, Allegan General Hospital CEO Gerald Barbini said: “We have a culture of teamwork and mutual respect throughout our organization. We share a collective vision: to provide outstanding care and service, and to work closely together as a team focused on a common objective – the patient. Everyone in this organization is considered a valuable partner and an important ingredient in our success.”
According to Modern Healthcare, 328 healthcare companies participated in this year’s healthcare workplace listing, which was open to all companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees. In each instance, the program collected information from both the employer and employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics, while employees were asked an in-depth set of questions that resulted in an analysis of eight core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction. The specific rankings of each hospital on the list will be revealed on October 18 in Dallas. Rankings will also be published in a special Modern Healthcare supplement on October 25.
