GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — HopeWest has been named “Best Places to Work in Healthcare” for 2021 by the leading trade publication, Modern Healthcare.
HopeWest is one of 75 providers/insurers and one of only nine hospice providers recognized as an exceptional employer in this prestigious national ranking. The program honors workplaces that empower employees to provide patients with the best possible care, products and services. Modern Healthcare will host its Best Places to Work Gala on Sept. 16 in Chicago, at which time it will reveal the ranked order for the winners in two catergories: providers/insurers and supplier companies.
“With the past year being especially challenging for the healthcare industry, I’m glad that everything HopeWest as an organization did to support our employees is being recognized with an award like the Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work,” Christy Whitney, HopeWest President and CEO said. “Since this designation is based on the survey responses of employees, I am particularly grateful for this recognition. When employees feel supported, they can provide the most compassionate care to patients and their families.”
Modern Healthcare, an independent healthcare news publication, selects healthcare companies for the “Best Places to Work in Heathcare” based on the results of two surveys: one completed by the participating employer and a satisfaction survey completed by current employees. This is the fourth time HopeWest has participated in the Modern Healthcare Best Employer survey and the fourth time HopeWest has been recognized.
