“We are very excited to be named one of the Best Places to Work in IT,” says Mike Dozier, LGH VP & Chief Information Officer. “Information Technology is a competitive area to retain and recruit top IT talent and I’m proud of the IT staff that contribute so much of their time and energy to making LGH a better place for our employees and patients. Employee engagement and culture are very important to LGH and everyone works hard to create an environment that employees are proud to be a part of,” he says.
