KU Hospital selected for 'best places to work in health care' list

KU Hospital has been named to Modern Healthcare magazine’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The list includes hospitals, providers, suppliers, payers and associations with at least 25 employees.

Modern Healthcare will reveal the specific rankings in a special supplement to be published Oct. 26. The supplement also will recognize the top places to work by industry segment (provider, payer and vendor) and number of employees, and will profile some of the recipients.

Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a Pennsylvania-based firm that administers “best places to work” programs nationwide. Modern Healthcare conducted the program to recognize outstanding employers in the health care industry on a national level.

“We are thrilled by the national recognition,” said Bob Page, president and chief executive officer of KU Hospital. “We have known for some time our hospital has established a great relationship with our staff. Our turnover is very low. More importantly, our quality of care and patient satisfaction is very high, reflecting a staff which shares the organization’s values and commitment.”
