Two KentuckyOne Health Hospitals in Louisville Earn a Place on
“Best Places to Work in Kentucky” 13th Annual List
Louisville, Ky. (January 24, 2017) — Our Lady of Peace and Medical Center Jewish East, both part of KentuckyOne Health, earned a place on the 13th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list, which identifies and recognizes Kentucky’s best employers. The facilities are among three KentuckyOne Health hospitals selected for this honor.
For the second year in a row, Our Lady of Peace was recognized in the large-sized employer category, for businesses with 500 or more employees. A total of 31 companies were selected as winners in this category.
Medical Center Jewish East was recognized in the medium-sized employer category, for businesses with 150-499 employees. A total of 29 companies were selected as winners in this category statewide.
The Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM) state council and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce host the Best Places to Work initiative. The selection process, managed by Best Companies Group, is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.
The Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition is a multi-year initiative designed to motivate companies in the Commonwealth to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. Studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work. The initiative is based on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” list.
“This award is based on staff surveys, which shows that our employees are extremely happy to work here,” said Jennifer Nolan, president, KentuckyOne Health. “We are thankful to work in such a positive environment, which has a positive impact on our patients as well.”
“We are honored to be named to the Best Places to Work in Kentucky list,” said Shelley Neal Shaughnessy, president of ambulatory care, KentuckyOne Health. “Our employees are proud to work at this outpatient facility, and create a positive environment daily for patients and fellow employees.”
