Four Lafayette General Health entities recognized as Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2018


Lafayette General Medical Doctors, Lafayette General Surgical Hospital, St. Martin Hospital and University Hospital & Clinics have all been selected by Modern Healthcare as 2018 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The complete list of this year’s winners, in alphabetical order, is available here. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring ranked lists of all the winners along with the October 1 issue. This is the third time St. Martin Hospital has received this distinction from Modern Healthcare.

“We are extremely proud to be recognized nationally for what we do,” says David L. Callecod, FACHE, president of Lafayette General Health. “Our employees’ engagement and their dedication to delivering on our mission to restore, maintain and improve health directly correlates with our patient satisfaction and their overall positive experience. Our team of healthcare professionals and physicians aim to provide the best environment possible for both our patients and our employees, making our entities great places to work and to seek medical treatment,” he continued.

This award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.

“Whether on the frontline or in the top office, healthcare employees witness moments that can either inspire or dishearten them. That can take a toll on an individual, and healthcare organizations must take extra steps to ensure that highs and lows during the workday don’t impact engagement or performance,” said Modern Healthcare Editor Aurora Aguilar. “This year’s best places to work, voted on by the employees themselves, exemplify what it takes to maintain dedication and satisfaction among its employees and that is the key to good patient care.”

“At Lafayette General Health, our vision is to be a regional healthcare system that always delivers excellence. This type of award illustrates that our employees are engaged in our vision system-wide. It sends a strong message about our company culture when a physician group, a surgical hospital, a rural hospital and a hospital that was once a state-run facility, are all named among Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work in Healthcare. I couldn’t be more proud of our employees and leaders,” concluded Callecod.

Winners will be honored at the 2018 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards gala on Thursday, September 27, 2018 at the Renaissance Dallas.
