Modern Healthcare Names Woman’s Hospital a Best Place to Work in Healthcare for 10th Consecutive Year

October 16, 2017

Nationally Ranked as No. 9

Woman’s Hospital has been named as one of Modern Healthcare magazine’s 2017 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, nationally ranking as No. 9 among healthcare providers and insurers. The award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry that have achieved workplace excellence and enabled employees to perform at their optimal level. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. Woman’s is once again the only hospital in the Baton Rouge area to receive this recognition, and the only healthcare organization to be named to the national list every year since its inception in 2007.

Employees ranked Woman’s 95% or higher in the following survey categories: leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, role satisfaction and work environment. The overall engagement category average was 97%; this category reflected satisfaction with Woman’s as an employer, organizational pride, sense of purpose and personal connection to Woman’s mission, vision and values.

“Every day, we live Woman’s values of respect, innovation, compassion, and excellence, and strive for the very best outcomes by working together. It is an honor for our team to be recognized for this commitment for the 10th consecutive year,” said Teri Fontenot, Woman’s President and CEO.

“A decade ago, Modern Healthcare set out to recognize outstanding employers across the industry. Now in its 10th year, Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare has become the hallmark for organizations striving to be just that. It’s gratifying to see how the program has grown,” said Fawn Lopez, publisher of Modern Healthcare. “Our award winners can be proud of the role they play in elevating the standard for workplace excellence. These five-star organizations not only see higher employee retention, but also increased patient engagement and satisfaction and healthier bottom lines.”

Woman’s was honored at the 2017 Best Places to Work awards dinner on September 28 in Las Vegas.
