Allegan General Hospital has been named for the fifth consecutive year to Modern Healthcare’s annual Best Places to Work in Healthcare list. According to Modern Healthcare, this award honors workplaces throughout the healthcare industry that empower their employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care and services.

“We are honored to be one of only 100 healthcare organizations in the country to receive this prestigious national award,” said Gerald Barbini, president and CEO of Allegan General Hospital. “Receiving this award for five consecutive years is a true testament to the consistent dedication and commitment of all of our employees. We are very fortunate to have a team of compassionate and highly skilled staff, who are committed to providing exceptional, compassionate and personalized care to our patients and the community.”

Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare award judging system is based on information collected from both the employer and employee. Employees are asked in-depth questions focusing on leadership and planning, culture and communication, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, role satisfaction, pay and benefit, and overall satisfaction.

“Being named to this list demonstrates that we have built a culture in which our staff are supported and engaged, which in turn greatly benefits our patients and community,” said Barbini. “There is very clear and documented evidence that hospitals with engaged employees provide higher quality, safer care, better outcomes and superior service to their patients. A hospital that is one of the best places to work is also one of the best places to receive healthcare.”
