Modern Healthcare magazine has named Memorial Healthcare System one of its “2023 Best Places to Work in Healthcare.” The recognition honors employers that empower workers to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products, and services.

Only 150 healthcare organizations nationwide made the publication’s list, which assesses employee satisfaction, in part, through an extensive survey process. A ranked listing of all the winners will be published in the October 2 issue of Modern Healthcare.

“Our workforce is the foundation of all we’re able to do and be for communities in South Florida, and we’re proud to be an employer that talented people want to be associated with,” said K. Scott Wester, CEO of Memorial Healthcare System. “We’re 15,000 strong, and the relationships we have with employees enables nearly everything we’ve accomplished.”

In its announcement, the magazine cited the extraordinary change healthcare is undergoing, and how having the right people in place is more critical than ever. Winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.

“An uncertain economy, staffing shortages, increasing demands for flexibility, and remote work opportunities are forcing every organization to focus on attracting and retaining talent in unprecedented ways," said Dan Peres, president of Modern Healthcare. "The 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want, and need, today.”

The magazine will celebrate those receiving the honor at an awards gala taking place September 28 in Chicago.
