Monroe County Hospital & Clinics Named Top 150 Workplaces

Local Healthcare Organization Recognized as Exceptional Workplace in the State of Iowa

Monroe County Hospital and Clinics (MCHC) announces it has been selected one of the “Top 150 Workplaces” by the Des Moines Register for 2016. Exclusively awarded based on anonymous employee feedback, this award reflects the value and engagement of the relationships among the MCHC employee team environment.

The “Top Workplaces” award is a national initiative to recognize employee-valued workplaces, based on the belief that the most successful organizations are the ones that employees believe in. By championing good practices, Top Workplaces are not only better places to work but are also more likely to be successful than peer organizations.

“This designation is tremendously meaningful to us, showing how enthusiastic our team feels about the environment and culture here at MCHC,” said Veronica Fuhs, CEO of MCHC, “and reflects upon the interactive and highly supportive nature of our employee community. This speaks volumes about how we work, what we do for our patients and the focus we have on high quality, patient focused care.”

Fuhs added, “We are honored to serve Monroe County residents and the surrounding communities. The patients and families at MCHC should feel confident that we have and will continue to recruit highly trained staff that provide quality, patient- centered care and are greatly satisfied with their work environment.”

All employee responses to the survey were kept anonymous in the award tabulation. Of note, current employees have shared these sentiments about the MCHC workplace: “There’s a sense of accomplishment here that is recognized and appreciated,” “This is a job where you can truly give back,” “All my co-workers are great, I can’t ever imagine working anyplace else,” “The supportive environment really makes me feel at home.”

This award, plus several others recently received by team members at MCHC, signifies the overall change momentum and improvement culture within the organization. Mission-focused, MCHC has a commitment to its patients, its standard of operation, and the perpetual goal of overall high quality care.

Performance excellence projects allow employees to be owners in their work environment at MCHC, and the leadership is focused on its commitment to strategic goals focusing on patient experience and the organization’s positive culture experience.
