Adventist Health System (AHS), which includes Shawnee Mission
Health (SMH), has been named to
Becker's Hospital Review’s 2017 list of “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.” The list features both healthcare
provider organizations and other healthcare-specific companies.
The “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” distinction
recognizes organizations for their commitment to fulfilling missions, creating
outstanding cultures and offering competitive benefits to their employees.
“It is exciting and an honor to be part of a health system
recognized as a great place to work,” said SMH’s Director of Human Resources
Lana Deason. “Our organization has established
and maintained a culture that our employees can be proud of, and their
engagement and dedication to Extending
the Healing Ministry of Christ is evident in the high level of
care they provide for patients on a daily basis.”
An industry leader with 45 hospital campuses in nine states and more than 80,000
employees, AHS encourages
professional, personal and spiritual growth, offering competitive wages and
benefits, employee recognition programs and mentorship opportunities. Many AHS
employees also support their local communities through participation in service
initiatives and activities.
