Modern Healthcare named West Valley Medical Center one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare in the nation for a seventh time. Last year West Valley not only made the list, but was one of the top 20 places to work, ranking 13th in the nation. Modern Healthcare will announce the rankings of organizations on the list during a virtual gala October 8.

"Excellent patient care begins with excellent employees. Now more than ever we have seen just how fantastic our colleagues are, as they come together to support one another and our community - providing the best care in the midst of a pandemic," Senta Cornelius, vice president of human resources for West Valley, said. "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."

"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."

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. To view the complete list, click here.
