"It has been an especially trying year for the world, and healthcare in particular as COVID-19 ravages our communities and your workplaces," said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare's editor. "But the organizations recognized on this year's list rose to the top and continued to be a source of strength for their teammates. They have seen their colleagues fall ill to the virus and struggled with the economic impact of the pandemic. The loyalty and trust between employers and their workers is being put to the test now more than ever. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for continuing to serve their workforce and communities during such an unprecedented time."

“I echo Aurora’s comments.  This is probably been the most trying year of my career,” said STRHS Pulaski CEO, Jim Edmondson.  “This survey was completed by over 70% of our employees right as the pandemic gripped our nation in fear and anxiety.  The fact that our staff, in these difficult moments, elevated our hospital as a Best Place to Work in Healthcare for a fourth year in a row is a direct result our relentless focus to be employee centered.  Happy employees produce great outcomes.”

This 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.
