(Lafayette, LA) September 1, 2011 â€“ Lafayette Surgical Specialty Hospital (LSSH) was named to Modern Healthcareâ€™s list of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for the second year in a row (2010, 2011). An alphabetical listing of the winners is now available atmodernhealthcare.com/bestplaces.
“We are very excited to be recognized again this year! Todayâ€™s workforce demands and deserves respect, fairness, and flexibility. Receiving this award means a great deal to our leadership team. It proves that our continuous focus on what is important to our staff really does make a difference. While we strive daily to provide high quality and patient focused care, we must always keep in mind that soaring employee satisfaction will result in the most positive patient perceptions. We are extremely proud to maintain this unique working environment and be ranked among the top healthcare providers in the nationâ€ said Buffy Domingue, CEO.
Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a PA-based firm that administers “best places to workâ€ programs nationwide. Modern Healthcare conducted this program to recognize outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level. From economic development to employee retention, being named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare benefits individuals, organizations and the healthcare industry. The program collected information from both the employer and employees and was open to all companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked in-depth questions that resulted in an analysis in 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.
“All LSSH employees are treated as people where our opinions and ideas matter. We feel valued. I have never worked in a place that continues to surprise me with extras that are put into place to solely benefit the employee,â€ said Dominque LeBlanc, one of LSSHâ€™s dedicated RNs.
Modern Healthcare will reveal the specific ranking of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare, from 1 to 100, LIVE on October 18, 2010, at a special awards gala in Chicago, IL. The final results will be posted on www.modernhealthcare.comand published in a special supplement to Modern Healthcare magazine. The supplement also will recognize the top places to work by industry segment (provider, payer and vendor) and by number of employees, and will profile some of the recipients.
