West Valley Medical Center September 27, 2019

Modern Healthcare announced the Best Places to Work in Healthcare rankings and West Valley Medical Center ranked number 13. The announcement happened last night, Thursday, September 26, 2019, during an awards dinner in Dallas, Texas. This is the sixth time West Valley has been recognized and West Valley is the only hospital in Idaho to make the 2019 list.

"We are proud to not only be a great hospital for our community and our patients, but one that fosters an environment that makes people want to come to work each day. Our employees care for patients like family and they care for each other like family. This award is for all of them, for creating a work atmosphere where people thrive and enjoy their jobs!" said Betsy Hunsicker, West Valley Chief Executive Officer.

"Excellent patient care begins with excellent employees. That's why we strive to provide a positive work environment and a family-like atmosphere across our entire organization," said Senta Cornelius, West Valley Vice President of Human Resources.

Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.

"With record unemployment levels, organizations face stiff competition to attract and retain top talent. The providers and companies making this year's Best Places to Work in Healthcare list understand the importance of creating an environment where employees can not only excel in their own development but contribute to the mission of improving care delivery," said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare Editor. "An appreciation--and dedication--to their organization's mission was one of the most common refrains from employees filling out surveys this year."
