Jamestown Regional Medical Center recently made the Prairie Business “50 Best Place to Work” list. The list highlights organizations in the northern plains that provide their employees with great benefits, workplace culture and employee morale, among other factors.


“This achievement is gratifying and validates JRMC’s commitment to being the best rural hospital for patients to receive care, employees to work and providers to practice,” said JRMC Interim President & CEO, Trisha Jungels.

This is the third time JRMC was recognized as a Best Place to Work. Modern Healthcare named JRMC a Best Place to Work in 2017 and 2018. Becker’s Healthcare Review named JRMC a 150 Top Place to Work in 2018.

For an organization to be eligible on the Prairie Business list, it must receive nominations from employees around the region. JRMC was the only organization to make the list from Jamestown.

Prairie Business Editor, Tom Dennis shared, “As the organizations range in size from small businesses to national companies, they all have one thing in common: a workplace culture that inspires loyalty and enthusiasm among employees.”

JRMC’s employees consistently list “coworkers” as one of their top reasons why they continue their employment at JRMC. In addition, each year employees donate more than $35,000 towards future care endowments, community care and surgical equipment. Employees also have opportunities to participate in various community events including Relay for Life, annual blood drives, parades and block parties.

In addition to being named onto the Prairie Businesses 50 Best Places to Work in 2018 list, JRMC has been named a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital each year since 2014 by iVantage Health Analytics and the Chartis Center for Rural Health, as well as one of the Best Modern Healthcare Places to Work in 2017.

JRMC Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer Ricki Ramlo said JRMC works to exceed industry standards, and one example of that is employee engagement and competitive benefits.

“JRMC goes above and beyond for its staff from our Legend Awards each quarter to employee engagement,” Ramlo said. “We are grateful for our employees’ commitment to caring for our patients and our community.”

Prairie Business has published a version of this list since 2013. The year 2018 is the first JRMC has received this award.
