Agnesian HealthCare is featured in the Becker’s Healthcare 2014 list of “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare,” a compilation of hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, physician groups, vendors and other healthcare organizations that provide excellent work environments and outstanding benefits to their employees.
Becker’s Healthcare has been compiling a list of Great Places to Work in Healthcare annually since 2011, but this is the first year non-provider organizations were included on the list. In fact, Agnesian HealthCare was named as one of the top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare as part of the 2011 Becker’s Hospital Review/Becker’s ASC Review.
To develop the list, the Becker’s Healthcare editorial team conducted research, considered nominations and evaluated organizations based on their benefits, workplace culture, professional development opportunities and previous recognition for workplace excellence. The resulting list is a compilation of 150 healthcare organizations that go above and beyond for their employees and are great places to work.
Sue Edminster, vice president of Human Resources at Agnesian HealthCare, validates the belief that all of its associates (employees) are the foundation of Agnesian HealthCare’s mission, values and vision.
“Over the last few years, we have engaged our associates in creating and committing to a culture of relationships - both to our patients, residents and families, and to one another,” Edminster says. “By listening, respecting, investing and engaging our associates we have provided the framework to achieve our goals.
“The honor of being recognized externally as a top 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare provides validation of the work we do to provide associates with the skills, tools and rewards to be successful in delivering Simply the Best service and care to our community,” Edminster adds. “We believe that associate involvement in work design, process improvement and decision making will lead to better patient outcomes. As healthcare continues to evolve and undergo major changes, associate involvement will be critical in developing ways to improve the patient experience and be good stewards of our resources. It is an honor to be recognized for the work our associates do.”
