For the second year in a row, Nanticoke Health Services is pleased to announce that it has been named to the 2012 Becker's Hospital Review/ Becker's ASC Review list of the Best 100 Places to Work in Healthcare. The 2012 list was developed through nominations and research. Recipients are selected for their demonstrated excellence in providing a work environment that promotes teamwork, professional development, and quality patient care. Recipients come from hospitals, health systems, surgery centers, and large physician practices.
What makes Nanticoke Health Services a Best 100 Place to Work? Employing 1,100 employees across three entities, Nanticoke has implemented several tools to communicate with its many providers, including a monthly newsletter, required staff meetings, regular town halls, and a CEO blog posted on the employee intranet. An objective online performance evaluation tool is used to give evaluations a shorter turnaround time and provide clearer, standardized feedback. Nanticoke’s active Employee Activity Committee plans regular events to promote staff bonding. Employee recognition programs are also in place. “Nanticoke’s employees work efficiently and with a purpose to support the organization, patients, each other, and the community at large,” said Barbara Hendricks, Director of Human Resources.
“Quality healthcare is all about people, and it all starts with providing our people with the tools they need to provide the best care possible. Employees are engaged in the best practices to provide high quality care to patients and are engaged within the community through many community outreach activities and services organizations. The physicians, nurses, technicians, and all the staff throughout Nanticoke Health Services are compassionate people who are committed to our community,” said Steven A. Rose, RN, MN, President and CEO of Nanticoke Health Services.
