SOMC places 10th overall on Best Places to Work list

PORTSMOUTH — Southern Ohio Medical Center placed 10th overall in Modern Healthcare’s 2012 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards. Among large employers, SOMC placed first. This is the third year in a row that SOMC has been featured on this list.

The magazine’s annual Best Places to Work in Healthcare program recognizes employers for creating workplaces in healthcare that enable employees to perform at their optimum level to provide patients and customers with the best possible patient care and services.

“We are honored to be recognized as one of the best healthcare facilities to work for in America by Modern Healthcare,” SOMC President and CEO Randy Arnett said. “To finish 10th overall, and first among large employers, is a tremendous accomplishment and says a lot about both the quality of people and the quality of care you can expect to find at SOMC.”

“Being named to Modern Healthcare’s list of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2012 demonstrates that SOMC has built a culture where employees are supported and engaged, which benefits not only patients and customers but the employer’s overall performance as well, ” said Fawn Lopez, vice president and publisher of Modern Healthcare. “These healthcare employers are models for others who are seeking to build a successful culture, resulting in optimum performance levels and benefits for their organization.”

Modern Healthcare revealed the ranked order of 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2012 at a banquet in Nashville on Oct. 9. The complete ranking will be shared in a special supplement of the Oct. 15 issue of Modern Healthcare, which will recognize the top places to work by company size and will profile some of the recipients.
