EMHS Wins Two Best Workplaces Awards

EMHS is honored to be both a Best Place to Work in Maine and a Best Place to Work in Healthcare.

Modern Healthcare, a national healthcare publication, in 2009 announced that EMHS was named one of 100 companies nationally as a Best Place to Work in Healthcare.This is the second year the healthcare system has earned this distinction. Earlier this year, EMHS participated in a two-part assessment process, administered by Best Companies Group, a workplace excellence consulting firm, where both employees and employers fill out separate surveys regarding the company. After the results were tallied, the surveys were combined and analyzed to determine the company’s strengths and opportunities. Best Companies Group looks to find and recognize companies that have established and consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments.

In addition, The Society for Human Resource Management’s Maine State Council announced that EMHS was one of 26 companies named as a Best Places to Work in Maine. This is the third year in a row that our healthcare system home office has been awarded the distinction. The Best Places to Work in Maine program is a statewide program also managed by the Best Companies Group. This assessment looked at the company’s employee policies and procedures in eight core areas (leadership, planning, corporate culture, communications, role satisfaction, work environment, pay and benefits, and overall satisfaction) and surveyed and analyzed responses from the employees.

“EMHS is very honored to be named both a Best Place to Work in Maine and a Best Place to Work in Healthcare, commented Michelle Hood, FACHE, president and CEO of EMHS. “Our employees are our most valuable resource, and with their commitment and dedication, we are able to provide service excellence in all that we do.”

EMHS works to ensure the highest quality care is available to all who need it, especially those in rural Maine. Our 8,000 employees throughout the system consult one another, sharing ideas, experience, and expertise, so they can deliver better and more efficient care. It is this combination of resources and leadership of our members that helps to sustain healthcare services in our communities.
