The Fortune magazine list of the 100 Best Companies to Work for appeared in their March issue.  Three of the top third were in healthcare.

chg1-21Number 16 was CHG Healthcare Services, a staffing agency. They were cited for their training and tuition reimbursement policies. At 23 was Baptist Health South Florida, a nonprofit.  Noted was its caring and supportive environment, based on teamwork. Rated 32 was St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  Their attribute was that employees take pride in the work.

Determined by Great Place to Work, these ratings are based on that organization’s Trust Index and employee surveys.  The achievements listed appear to be admirable indeed, yet rather below the demanding standards of our own Characteristics of the Ideal Organization in Healthcare!  Perhaps, too, our readers can suggest some other healthcare organizations worthy of such recognition.
