LMHS Receives Modern Healthcare Recognition 2017 

The recognition, now in its tenth year, honors workplaces throughout the healthcare industry that empower employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services.  LMHS, which includes Licking Memorial Hospital, Licking Memorial Health Professionals and Licking Memorial Health Foundation, was one of five healthcare providers in the state of Ohio to be included in the list.  

“Inclusion on Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare list is a great honor for our organization,” said Rob Montagnese, LMHS President & CEO.  “This award recognizes our dedication to ensuring excellent benefits and a positive work environment for our employees, which in turn, helps our staff provide high quality health care, and reinforces our commitment to the community.”  

The list was released after healthcare employers and employees responded to survey questions regarding key measures that are based on the following eight core areas:
•    Leadership and planning
•    Corporate culture and communications
•    Role satisfaction
•    Work environment
•    Relationship with supervisor
•    Training, development and resources
•    Pay and benefits 
•    Overall engagement
