Lexington Regional Health Center has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The complete list of this year’s winner rankings is available at ModernHealthcare.com/bestplacestowork.
“It is with great pleasure and honor that I report that we were, once again, a Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work award recipient. I want to take a moment to recognize the greatest asset, the people that make up the Lexington Regional Health Care team”, said Leslie Marsh, CEO. “The past year has been tough battling the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s taken everybody in the hospital focusing on their daily activities to do our part to provide care for our community. Without the dedication of each and every team member we would be nothing. This award is truly about our amazing team.”
Modern Healthcare partnered with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. While this program has evolved over the years, its mission remains the same: recognizing workplaces that empower employees to provide patients and customers the best possible care, products and services. As the healthcare industry sits squarely on the frontlines of this pandemic, the mission of the Best Places to Work program has only become more important. Healthcare leaders have proven that creating nurturing, supportive workplaces for their most valuable asset, their employees, is vital.
“One year into the pandemic, we’ve seen the industry transform to meet the needs of its patients and employees,” said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare’s editor. “Time and time again, the most resilient and successful organizations show that empathy towards their staff, clear vision and compassion towards the patient buoys teams and sets them up for success. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for eliciting loyalty from their workforce and communities during harrowing times.”
