Modern Healthcare Names Woman’s Hospital a Best Place to Work in Healthcare

October 09, 2018

Nationally Ranked as No. 6

Woman’s Hospital has been named as one of Modern Healthcare magazine’s 2018 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, nationally ranking as No. 6 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. 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.

Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. Employees ranked Woman’s 91% or higher in the following survey categories: leadership and planning, corporate culture and communications, relationship with supervisor, role satisfaction and work environment. The overall engagement category average was 95%; 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.

“I am honored that we have received this distinction for the past 11 years,” said Teri Fontenot, President and CEO of Woman’s Hospital. “Our strong organizational culture translates to quality care and outcomes for our patients, and has positioned Woman’s as a leader in the healthcare industry in both Louisiana and the nation.”

“Our award winners can be proud of the role they played in elevating the standard for workplace excellence. They have the judgment, drive and resilience to solve healthcare’s most significant challenges through our most important resource: people. They are pushing the envelope and creating a more engaged and productive workforce, all while tackling the ever-present challenges of cost, safety, quality and access,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare.

Woman’s was honored at the 2018 Best Places to Work awards dinner on September 27 in Dallas. The complete list of this year’s winner rankings is available here.
