Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center has, for the second year in a row, been listed as one of the best healthcare facilities in which to work in the United States.
Becker’s Healthcare, based in Chicago, Illinois, recently published its 2014 list of “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare,” and for the second consecutive year, TLRMC has been included.
TLRMC is one of only two hospitals in Kentucky to be included in the annual list, and 2014 marks the first year non-provider organizations were included, said Bill Oldham, TLRMC’s director of planning and marketing.
“150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” is “a compilation of hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, physician groups, vendors, and other healthcare organizations that provide robust benefit packages, positive work environments, excellent employee recognition programs, and opportunities for professional development and continuing education,” said Oldham.
The Becker’s Hospital Review and Becker’s ASC Review editorial teams considered all of the aforementioned traits, in addition to previous recognition for workplace excellence, when compiling the 2014 list.
TLRMC Chief Executive Officer Wayne Meriwether, MHA, said the recognition confirms what he sees while walking through the hospital.
“When I hear our staff referring to their co-workers as ‘family’ and patients comment on being ‘treated like family,’ it makes me appreciate that TLRMC really is a special place to work,” said Meriwether. “It’s our people that make the difference, and we welcome Becker’s once again confirming something we’ve known for a long time.”
