The Women's Hospital ranks No. 2 on Modern Healthcare's list of the medium-size provider organizations on Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2014, those with 250 to 999 employees, and is No. 5 overall among the 100 employers on the ranking. This is the fifth year the hospital has earned a place on the list.
No. 1 on this year's ranking for mid-sized providers is Lovelace Women's Hospital, Albuquerque, which has made the annual Best Places rankings six times. The hospital was profiled last year. Visit modernhealthcare.com/bestplaces for profiles of the hospital and other previous winners.
Fuelling's comment suggests that CEO Christina Ryan's strategy is working. Since the hospital opened in 2001, she and the senior leadership team have worked to make employee communication a top priority.
“We have tried to educate staff that if there is a problem, it needs to be addressed right now, and I think they are used to that mentality,” Ryan said. “We don't wait until something gets to be a bigger problem because someone thinks, 'Oh, that's management's job.' No, it is all of our jobs.”
