The Michigan Health & Hospital Association (MHA) has been ranked No.43 among healthcare suppliers in Modern Healthcare’s 2021 Best Places to Work award program. The complete list of this year’s winner rankings is available at ModernHealthcare.com/bestplacestowork. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring the ranked list of all winners along with the Sept. 20 issue of MH magazine.
“It’s a tremendous honor for the MHA to receive this award as we navigate a new-normal following some of the most challenging years in healthcare,” said MHA CEO Brian Peters. “We owe this recognition to our resilient employees whose work and passion drive our mission of advancing the health of Michigan communities.”
Modern Healthcare partnered with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. While this program has evolved over the years, its mission remains the same: recognizing workplaces that empower employees to provide patients and customers the best possible care, products and services.
As the healthcare industry sits squarely on the frontlines of this pandemic, the mission of the Best Places to Work program has only become more important. Healthcare leaders have proven that creating nurturing, supportive workplaces for their most valuable asset, their employees, is vital.
“The healthcare workforce has undergone a true test in the past year and a half, oftentimes pitting employees against employers. So how best to keep harmony in a workplace that is inherently stressful? This year’s winners have an easy tip to incorporate: show respect. In high-performing and successful teams, regard for employees’ well-being, acknowledgment of their contributions, and deference to their experience and dedication all helped maintain professionalism and productivity,” said Aurora Aguilar, Editor of Modern Healthcare. “We congratulate all of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for emphasizing that compassion and respect are essential to an engaged and productive workforce."
The MHA was honored at the 2021 Best Places to Work Gala on Thursday, Sept. 16. The MHA is the only state hospital association to have been named a 2021 awardee. This is the MHA’s third time as a Best Place to Work in Healthcare after having won the award in 2010 and 2012.
