HaysMed Named Best Place to Work in Healthcare

HAYS, Kansas (August 13, 2012)— For the fifth straight year, Modern Healthcare magazine has named HaysMed as one of the country's Best Places to Work in healthcare in the nation.  The list was compiled from an evaluation of 340 healthcare companies in partnership with Best Companies Group, a Pennsylvania-based firm that administers "best places to work" programs nationwide.

“This award is validation of years of work,” said President and CEO, John Jeter, MD, “we’ve proven you can change the culture of an organization.” He added, “We do important work for important people – that’s our motto. It says it all. Nothing is more important than our patients and Associates. We can’t provide the best health care without the best staff and we can’t have the best staff without the best workplace environment.”

HaysMed was selected based upon results of a random employee survey and an in-depth questionnaire detailing hospital policies, practices, benefits and demographics. “The employee survey focused upon 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. “We are thrilled to be on the list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare for the fifth year in a row.  This says a lot about our Associates and the culture we have at HaysMed,” said Nikki Adams, Director of Associate Development. “This is a great achievement and we are honored to be listed among the most elite healthcare organizations in the country.”

Modern Healthcare will reveal the specific ranking of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare, from 1 to 100, on October 9 at a special awards gala in Nashville, Tennessee.  The results will be published in a special supplement to Modern Healthcare magazine on October 15, 2010.

Accepting the award will be a small group of HaysMed Associates, including representatives of the hospital’s Culture Committee formed more than 10 years ago to focus upon Associate satisfaction, who will travel with Dr. Jeter to the award gala.

HaysMed was one of three healthcare organizations in Kansas who received the designation this year; however HaysMed is the only facility from Kansas who has received the award for five years running.
