It’s turning into a positive trend for Woman’s Hospital; for the fourth year in a row, Modern Healthcare has announced that the Baton Rouge based, not-for-profit hospital is one of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Woman’s is once again, the only hospital in the Baton Rouge area to receive this recognition, and the only hospital in Louisiana to be named to the list every year the national list has been published. Modern Healthcare will reveal the specific rankings, from 1 to 100, at a recognition banquet and in a special supplement. This year, 328 healthcare companies nationwide participated in the annual assessment.
“I am extremely proud of Woman’s for once again receiving this distinction. It is an honor that is shared by all employees and leadership as their level of commitment and caliber of dedication make this a great place to work and an exceptional place to receive care,” says Teri Fontenot, President and CEO of Woman’s. “Maintaining a staff of highly skilled, compassionate, and satisfied employees is the key to Woman’s success,” adds Fontenot.
Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare program identifies and recognizes healthcare organizations that have successfully built workplace excellence and enabled employees to perform at their optimal level. This program highlights companies that serve as innovators in issues ranging from economic development to employee retention and provide the best leadership to individuals, organizations and the healthcare industry.
About the Award Program:
The program collected information from both employers 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 eight core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.
