June 26, 2017

Southern Tennessee Regional Health System Pulaski has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the 2017 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring ranked lists of all the winners along with the October 2 issue.

“Employers in today’s highly-regulated healthcare industry face great challenges in recruiting, engaging and retaining top talent which is key to quality care and positive patient experiences,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare. “I commend those organizations that have risen to the occasion and have made the list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare.”

“Attaining this distinction is 3 years in the making,” said hospital CEO, Jim Edmondson.    “It requires a lot of hard work and responsiveness to our employees and what they tell us in the survey conducted by Modern Healthcare.  Our Vision Statement states:  We want to create places where people choose to come for healthcare; physicians want to practice, and employees want to work.  We are humbled by this national recognition, but at the same time, it is great to verify what we do here in Pulaski for our employees is working.  It is the key to reaching the other two goals of our Vision Statement.” 

Now in its tenth year, the award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.

Southern Tennessee Regional Health System Pulaski will be honored at the 2017 Best Places to Work Awards Dinner on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at the W Las Vegas.
