Valley County Health System (VCHS) has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Out of all the Healthcare facilities in Nebraska, VCHS was one of three to receive this recognition. This award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide.
“An uncertain economy, staffing shortages and increasing demands for flexibility and remote work opportunities are forcing every business in the industry to focus on attracting and retaining talent in unprecedented ways,” said Dan Peres, president of Modern Healthcare. “The 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want — and need — today. The healthcare industry is going through a period of extraordinary change. Having the right people in place is more critical than ever, and the winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.”
Results from a recent VCHS employee survey as well as an extensive employer assessment were utilized by Modern Healthcare and Workforce Research Group during the assessment process. The assessment consisted of over 70 questions related to the workforce, diversity and inclusion, benefits, wellness initiatives, fun activities, and work-life balance.
“I am incredibly proud of our staff for their hard work, dedication, and commitment to excellence. They are the backbone of our hospital, and it is because of their unwavering passion and enthusiasm that we have been named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare.” Said VCHS CEO Nancy Glaubke. “I appreciate all that they do, and for making our hospital a truly special and remarkable place.”
VCHS will find out their ranking on the Best Places list and be celebrated at the 2023 Best Places to Work in Healthcare Awards Gala taking place Sept. 28 at the Renaissance Chicago.
