Modern Healthcare named the Tri-Cities Cancer Center one of the top 150 healthcare organizations to work for in the United States. Modern Healthcare will reveal the ranked order of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2017 at a banquet on September 17th in Las Vegas during Modern Healthcare’s annual “Workplace of the Future” conference.
The competition is offered free-of-charge and the process includes two surveys to gather detailed data about each participating company. Best Companies Group conducts the surveys, analyzes the data and determines the winners and rankings. The surveys are a two-part process: Part I – Employer Benefits & Policies Questionnaire: The employer completes an online survey, detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Part II – Employee Engagement & Satisfaction Survey: Employees complete a survey of in-depth statements using a scale of five points ranging from “Agree Strongly” to “Disagree Strongly.” The survey also includes demographic and open-ended questions.
“This is a tremendous honor for our team. The staff culture within the Tri-Cities Cancer Center is second to none,” stated Chuck DeGooyer, Tri-Cities Cancer Center CEO. “I am continually impressed by the excellence our team achieves. Their care of our patients and their families, as well as each other, is evident in everything we do. Last year, our team was recognized as the first cancer center in the nation to achieve APEx accreditation, a national accreditation which focuses on safety for patients and staff as well as quality of care in the delivery of radiation therapy. Couple this with being recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare in the U.S. and it is self-evident why we hear time and again from patients, patrons, volunteers and our staff, ‘It’s the people’ that make the Tri-Cities Cancer Center so special.”
