2015 LMHS Ranks in the Top 20 of the Nation’s Best Workplaces in Health Care by Fortune and Best Place to Work®

2015 LMHS Ranks in the Top 20 of the Nation’s Best Workplaces in Health Care by Fortune and Best Place to Work® LMHS President & CEO Rob Montagnese said, “It is gratifying to know our employees rated the Health Systems’ work environment so highly.  We hold our employees to very high standards, and they continue to meet our expectations and excel in the care provided to our patients.  Ultimately, LMHS patients benefit when they receive care from healthcare professionals who are dedicated and enjoy their work.  Many patients have commented to me that they noticed our staff’s positive energy which creates an outstanding healthcare experience.”

Anne Peterson, Vice President Human Resources & Support Services, noted that LMHS’ employee satisfaction-related recognitions help the Health Systems attract and retain highly qualified staff members.  “LMHS regularly recruits physicians and other healthcare professionals who graduated at the top of their class and are well-respected in their fields,” Anne said.  “These professionals often have the option of working in a metropolitan hospital, but they choose to serve at LMHS, which includes a medium-size community hospital, largely because of our growing reputation as an excellent, employee-focused work environment.  In 2014, LMHS received the Best Places to Work in Healthcare Award from Modern Healthcare, Healthiest Employer of Central Ohio Award from Columbus Business First, the Ohio Hospital Association Award for Workplace Safety, and the American Heart Association’s Fit-Friendly Worksite Recognition.”

“Healthcare organizations have a responsibility, not only to their employees, but also to their patients to provide workplaces that support and bring out the best in their staff,” commented Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work United States. “Great workplaces are constantly monitoring and analyzing their employees’ workplace experiences and then taking action to improve them.  Inclusion on this list is a significant indicator that these companies’ efforts to create great workplaces are resonating with their staff.”
