Monroe County Hospital & Clinics is proud to announce they have been recognized for the third year in a row as one of Modern Healthcare Magazine’s 100 Best Places to Work. Modern Healthcare, a leading publication that covers the health care industry, recognizes employers on a national level from economic development to employee retention. Last year, Monroe County Hospital & Clinics was named the 37th Best Place to Work in Healthcare; in 2010, MCHC ranked 22nd.
The program collects information from both the employer and employees and is open to any type of health care employer, including hospitals, physician clinics, and suppliers with at least 25 employees. Employers complete a survey detailing company policies/practices, benefits and demographics. Employees are asked an in-depth set of questions that result in an analysis in 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.
Monroe County Hospital & Clinics uses the survey as a benchmark against other healthcare organizations across the country as well as a marketing and recruiting tool. Of equal importance, being recognized as a top employer in the nation boosts the morale of the entire organization and validates the organizational efforts to provide a great place to work, receive care, and practice medicine. Greg Paris, CEO, added “It’s important that our community have quality care and service in their local hospital. But, Monroe County Hospital & Clinics is also a great place to work, and this survey helps us measure how we compare versus other health care organizations. And the two are intertwined; when you create a great place to work, great employees deliver outstanding care and service.”
Monroe County Hospital & Clinics will learn its specific ranking among the 100 at the 2012 Best Places to Work in Healthcare Conference and Awards Gala in Nashville, Tennessee on Tuesday, October 9th.
