SMH Named Best Place to Work in Healthcare
St. Martin Hospital (SMH) has been selected by Modern Healthcare magazine as one of the 2015 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. This is the second-consecutive year SMH has been named to this prestigious list. All 100 winners of the award will be featured in the October 19 issue of the magazine.
This recognition honors workplaces throughout the healthcare industry, on a national level, that empower their employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services.
“We are extremely proud of to be recognized nationally for what we do here,” says Bryan Laperouse, FACHE, interim CEO at SMH. “It’s important for people of this area to know that our hospital aims to provide the best environment possible for both our patients and our employees and we do an exceptional job in accomplishing this. It is truly a great place to work, and to be treated as a patient,” he says.
In its eighth year, the award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.
“Employee engagement is key to making the transition from volume to value-based care in today’s fast-changing healthcare environment,” said Merrill Goozner, editor of Modern Healthcare. “Companies designated as best places to work have discovered the key to gaining and maintaining that engagement,” she adds.
SMH will be honored at the 2015 Best Places to Work Awards Dinner on Wednesday, October 14, in Chicago. For more information, or questions on the 2015 Best Places to Work in Healthcare recognition program, contact Deborah Greif at (312) 649-5459.
