Parkview Huntington, Best Places to Work

Posted: Friday, May 24, 2019

Two local, community-owned hospitals, Parkview Huntington Hospital and Parkview Wabash Hospital, have been named to Modern Healthcare’s list of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Other Parkview hospitals named to the list are Parkview LaGrange Hospital, Parkview Noble Hospital and Parkview Whitley Hospital, which includes Parkview Warsaw.

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.

“Being recognized as a great place to work is really exciting because we put a lot of energy into creating a culture in which our co-workers feel valued and respected for their contributions,” said Marilyn Custer-Mitchell, president, Parkview Wabash Hospital. “Teamwork is essential to delivering the highest-quality care, and when co-workers enjoy being part of the team, they really invest themselves in caring for our patients, for each other and for the Wabash County community.”

Juli Johnson, president, Parkview Huntington Hospital, agrees: “We have such a great team of people here at Parkview Huntington. They are so committed to delivering world-class care to our patients every day, and to caring for each other and the community. And we recognize their dedication by showing them how their skills, talents, compassion and commitment are appreciated. They have a strong voice in shaping our work environment, and that really shows in the experience of our patients, and in honors such as this one.”

“Despite the political headwinds that the industry faces, healthcare organizations continue to be dominant economic engines in their communities,” commented Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare.

“Organizations recognized on this year’s list have also weathered mergers and reorganizations and have come out stronger. As evidenced every month by the Bureau of Labor Statistics employment numbers, the industry shows little sign of slowing down when it comes to creating jobs. And that puts pressure on employers to create not only robust compensation and benefit packages, but to create a sense of loyalty in a competitive labor market. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for going above and beyond to create fulfilling environments for the nation’s professional caregivers.”
