For the second consecutive year, Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky.
The Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce announced the winners of the 10th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition last week.
“We are honored to receive this recognition for the second year in a row,” TLRMC CEO Wayne Meriwether said. “It says a lot about the commitment of staff toward their jobs and their coworkers.”
The competition is “a multi-year initiative designed to motivate companies in the Commonwealth to focus, measure, and move their workplace environments toward excellence,” according to a press release from the KYSHRM.
This year marks the first time the small/medium category of places to work has been divided, creating three categories: small companies of 15-149 employees; medium companies of 150-499 employees; and large companies consisting of more than 500 employees, the release read.
TLRMC is classified as a medium-sized company in this year’s competition, according to TLRMC Director of Planning and Marketing Bill Oldham.
Meriwether said, “It is summed up best by an employee that recently had a family member in the hospital when she said ‘The love and concern that I get from my co-workers has made a bad diagnosis much easier to bear. There is always a kind word, an answer to a question, an offer of help. I don’t have the words to express how much I appreciate this facility and the people who work here. We do patient care the way it’s supposed to be done. Not for the money, but for love of the patient and concern for their outcomes.’”
The KYSHRM consists of 13 local chapters throughout the state and has a membership of more than 1,500 human resources and business professionals across all industries.
