Flaget Memorial Hospital Recognized on 16th Annual “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” List

BARDSTOWN, Ky. (Jan. 23, 2020) – Flaget Memorial Hospital, part of CHI Saint Joseph Health, has earned a place on the 16th Annual “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” list, which identifies and awards Kentucky’s best employers. For the third year in a row, Flaget was recognized as one of 31 top medium-sized employers, which includes businesses with 150-499 employees.

“We are thrilled to be named one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky for the third straight year,” said Jennifer Nolan, president, Flaget Memorial Hospital. “Our priority each and every day is making sure patients receive the highest quality of care while visiting us, and that our employees have the tools they need to be happy and succeed. This ranking affirms how strong our company culture is and that is something we are all proud of.”

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) spearhead the annual Best Places to Work initiative.
