Longview Regional Medical Center Named as One of Best Places to Work in Healthcare

Modern Healthcare announced, on Tuesday, its second annual list of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Longview Regional Medical Center was among those listed.

Three-hundred and seventeen (317) healthcare companies participated in this year's healthcare workplace listing - an increase of 34% (or 80 companies) over 2008. Modern Healthcare will reveal the specific ranking of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare, from 1 to 100, in a special supplement to be published October 26, 2009.

Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a PA-based firm that administers "best places to work" 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 an in-depth set of 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.

"Modern Healthcare congratulates all of the 100 organizations named to the magazine's list of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2009," said Fawn Lopez, publisher of Modern Healthcare. "These healthcare employers demonstrate that building a culture in which employees are supported and engaged benefits not only patients and customers but the employers' financial performance as well." A video announcement, along with an alphabetical listing of the 2009 winners is available at modernhealthcare.com/bestplaces.

Longview Regional will attend their Conference and Award Gala in Chicago on October 27.  Those companies will network with fellow winners and industry leaders; hear from healthcare experts; learn how to leverage their Best Places to Work in Healthcare status and much more.

"Longview Regional has been recognized for our quality in excellence in healthcare for several years.  We are honored to have been selected as one of Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work!  We thank you for this recognition," stated Jim Kendrick, Chief Executive Officer at Longview Regional Medical Center.

Best Companies Group works with partners to establish "Best Places to Work", "Best Companies" and "Best Employers" programs on a national, state-wide and regional basis. Through its thorough workplace assessment utilizing employer questionnaires and employee satisfaction surveys, Best Companies Group identifies and recognizes companies who have been successful in creating and maintaining workplace excellence.
