“Our award winners can be proud of the role the play in elevating the standard for workplace excellence. They have the judgment, drive and resilience to solve healthcare’s most significant challenges through our most important resource: people. They are pushing the envelope and creating a more engaged and productive workforce, all while tackling the ever-present challenges of cost, safety, quality and access,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare.

“This was our first year to measure employee satisfaction with Modern Healthcare, ” Nordwick stated.

“UMH has been measuring employee engagement with other renowned healthcare agencies, like Press Ganey, for over 10 years and we’ve always ranked in the top percentile but we saw this survey as an opportunity to see how we rank amongst a different peer group to ensure we truly are where we want to be for our employees and out patients,” Nordwick added.
