Modern Healthcare named Jamestown Regional Medical Center one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2017.

And, in the 10-year history of the award, this is the first time JRMC has received it. JRMC was also the only organization in North Dakota and South Dakota to receive the award for 2017.

Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare program recognizes the top workplaces in healthcare. Those that certainly go above and beyond to support their staff are eligible. And, those that empower their employees to provide patients and guests with the best care, products and services are eligible.

“I remain humbled to get to work with such an amazing group of co-workers,” said JRMC President and CEO K.C. DeBoer. “They are THE difference in the lives of those we serve each and every day.”


To clarify, Modern Healthcare selects 150 recipients from healthcare organizations around the country. Modern Healthcare also partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process. The process includes a questionnaire from the participating employer. It also includes a satisfaction survey of a company’s employees.

“Employers in today’s highly-regulated healthcare industry certainly face great challenges. These challenges are in recruiting, engaging and retaining top talent. Retaining talent is certainly key to quality care and positive patient experiences,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare. “I commend those organizations that have risen to the occasion and have made the list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare.” The program is open to all healthcare organizations. And, it’s open to companies in all sectors of the industry with a minimum of 25 full-time employees.

“We are honored to be named to this list. We strive to make JRMC the best place for employees to work. This recognition is an affirmation that we are on the right track,” DeBoer said.
