Missouri healthcare organizations earn top rankings


Five Missouri-based organizations have been named in Becker’s Hospital Review’s 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare in 2015. The annual list includes both healthcare providers and other types of healthcare-specific companies.

“Many of these organizations have been recognized by national, state or local organizations for their workplace culture or employee satisfaction scores,” the report stated.

Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City has been ranked nationally in nine pediatric specialties by U.S. News & World Report, and it was the first hospital in either Missouri or Kansas to earn Magnet designation.

The county-owned hospital employs about 300 people and was recognized by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry and Missouri Business magazine as a presenter for the state’s Best Places to Work in 2014.

The list was developed through a combination of nominations and editorial research. The organizations were chosen for their benefits offerings, wellness programs, commitment to diversity and inclusion, professional development opportunities and environments that promote employee satisfaction and work-life balance.

This is the second year in a row to feature both healthcare providers and other types of healthcare-specific companies. A version of this list has been published every year since 2011.
