Modern Healthcare named Jamestown Regional Medical Center one of the Best Places to Work in 2017.
Modern Healthcare honors workplaces throughout the healthcare industry that empower employees to provide the best possible care. Each year, Modern Healthcare singles out and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level. Modern Healthcare announced the recipients at the Workplace of the Future conference in Las Vegas last month. Modern Healthcare announced that of the Top 150 organizations, 75 are providers/insurers and 75 are suppliers/vendors. Of the 75 in its category, JRMC placed No. 63. Receiving the award on behalf of JRMC was: Abby Morken, human resources generalist; Stacey Pesek, patient access lead; and Ricki Ramlo, vice president of operations.
“Being named No. 63 is a significant honor. That’s No. 63 in the entire country,” said JRMC President & CEO K.C. DeBoer. “Receiving this honor means JRMC can continue to hire and retain the best people to care for Jamestown and the surrounding communities.”
This year marks the 10-year anniversary of Best Places to Work award. This is the first year JRMC has received it.
“We are honored to be named one of the top 75 healthcare employers in the nation,” Ramlo said. “JRMC is fortunate in that employee engagement is a priority of its board. We’re also fortunate in that our employees are dedicated to providing the best care for this community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.”
JRMC’s employee satisfaction scores are in the 88th percentile when compared with other hospitals. Turnover at JRMC in fiscal year 2016-2017 was 18 percent, below the industry average of 19 percent.
“JRMC’s vision is to ‘Be the best rural hospital in the country for patients to receive care, employees to work and for providers to practice,’” Ramlo said. “This award is evidence that we are on the right track.”
