Modern Healthcare has named West Valley Medical Center one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare in the nation for a ninth time. Last year West Valley not only made the list, but was one of the top 40 places to work in the nation and the year before that, ranked 13th in the nation. Modern Healthcare will announce the 2021 rankings of organizations during a live event in Chicago on September 16.

“We are a company committed to the care and improvement of human life and that includes our employees. We are truly honored to support the team that we do," said Senta Cornelius, vice president of human resources for West Valley. "Our consistent recognition by Modern Healthcare is a testament to West Valley's commitment to providing a great, positive work environment for everyone on our team because we know excellent patient care begins with excellent employees."

"One year into the pandemic, we've seen the industry transform to meet the needs of its patients and employees," said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare's editor. "Time and time again, the most resilient and successful organizations show that empathy towards their staff, clear vision and compassion towards the patient buoys teams and sets them up for success. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for eliciting loyalty from their workforce and communities during harrowing times."
