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.
“The work environment at Lafayette Surgical is nothing like any other hospital I’ve worked for. Not only the physical beauty of our facility but the educational opportunities, recognition for hard work, and smiling, friendly faces are just some of the reasons I love to come to work every dayâ€ said Christine Wood, one of LSSH’s dedicated nurses.
