Saint Joseph Berea Recognized for the First Time on “Best Places to Work in Kentucky” List

BEREA, Ky. (March 15, 2023) – For the first time, Saint Joseph Berea has earned a place on the "Best Places to Work in Kentucky" list. Each year, the list identifies and awards Kentucky's best employers. Saint Joseph Berea has been acknowledged as one of the 30 top medium-sized employers, which includes businesses with 150-499 employees.

“We are so honored and excited to be named one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky for the first time,” said John Yanes, president, Saint Joseph Berea. “At Saint Joseph Berea, we are fortunate to have a team of dedicated individuals who are committed to providing the best care to our patients every day. We work hard to create an excellent and compassionate workplace for our caregivers, and it’s wonderful to know that they also think we deserve to be on this prestigious list. This wouldn’t be possible with each and every one of our team members.”

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) host the annual Best Places to Work initiative. This is the 19th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky program – a multi-year initiative designed to motivate and inspire companies throughout the commonwealth to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence.  

Companies are selected based on an assessment of their employee policies, procedures, and the results of an internal employee survey. Saint Joseph London is one of six facilities or groups from CHI Saint Joseph Health to earn recognition on the list. The others are Flaget Memorial Hospital, Saint Joseph Berea, Saint Joseph Jessamine, CHI Saint Joseph Health Partners and the CHI Saint Joseph Health – Outpatient Surgery Center in Lexington.

The winners and their final rankings will be announced at an awards dinner on Thursday, June 8, at the Central Bank Center in Lexington. For more details about Best Places to Work in Kentucky, visit https://www.bestplacestoworkkentucky.com/
