Wamego City Hospital named to Best Places to Work in Healthcare

Modern Healthcare has announced that Wamego City Hospital is included among the magazine's list of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2011.

Modern Healthcare will reveal the ranked order of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare on Oct. 18 at a banquet in Chicago.

“We are honored to be named to this prestigious list for the second consecutive year,” said Shannan Flach, CEO of Wamego City Hospital. “We take great pride in providing a workplace where employees feel valued and this award is evidence to that fact.”

About the Award Program

Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a PA-based firm that administers “best places to work” programs nationwide. Modern Healthcare conducted this program to recognize outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level. From economic development to employee retention, being named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare benefits individuals, organizations and the healthcare industry.

The program collected information from both the employer and employees and was open to all companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked in-depth questions that resulted in an analysis in 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.
