“It gives me immense pride that we have received this award five years in a row.  This year we were named the number one workplace in the medium size business category which is an amazing honor!” said Veronica Fuhs, MCHC CEO. “Our employee’s dedication to our patients and overall organizational culture is beyond valued. I thank every employee for their efforts. They each add value to our company and our patient’s lives, and it is a privilege to work with them and to have them as part of the MCHC team.”

In addition to being ranked first, this is MCHC’s 5th year in a row on the Top Workplace list!
