Hannibal Regional has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the best places to work in health care in 2017.
“Employers in today’s highly regulated health care industry face great challenges in recruiting, engaging and retaining top talent, which is key to quality care and positive patient experiences,” Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare, said. “I commend those organizations that have risen to the occasion and have made the list of best places to work in health care.”
“Hannibal Regional is honored and humbled to receive this prestigious award. This award speaks volumes about the dedicated team members we have at Hannibal Regional and their commitment to working together to guide our community to better. I want to personally congratulate our entire team on this recognition,” said Todd Ahrens, president and CEO of Hannibal Regional Healthcare System.
Now in its 10th year, the award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the health care industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.
“I am beyond proud of Hannibal Regional for being recognized as one of Modern Healthcare’s best places to work in healthcare for 2017. As a team member, I see the ongoing efforts to make us the best place to work, including our team-member pharmacy and actively engaged senior leadership. One of the greatest benefits of Hannibal Regional is our team, or more accurately our work family. We are so blessed to have a team of genuinely good, kind-hearted people who support each other and care for our patients like family,” said Kim Runquist RN, director of ICU.
Hannibal Regional will be honored at the 2017 best places to work awards dinner in September in Las Vegas.
