We are honored to announce that Physicians Surgical Hospitals have been listed by Modern Healthcare on the Best Places to Work in Health Care list as 18th overall and first in the category of small providers. This is the second year in a row Physicians Surgical Hospitals has received the top ranking in the small provider category by Modern Healthcare. The ranking was announced Thursday evening in New Orleans, LA at the awards dinner. Physicians Surgical Hospitals join four other facilities receiving this recognition within Ardent Health Services, our parent company based in Nashville, TN. No other organization or health system had more facilities make the prestigious list.
"I have great people on my team," says pre-op nurse Lori Bonilla, RN of Physicians Surgical Hospitals at Quail Creek. "Everything is focused around caring for the patient. That is our number one goal. There's a lot of teamwork. We get along great. There's also a lot of laughter and happiness. Everyone asks about you and your family. It's somewhere I look forward to coming to every day.”
"This hospital genuinely cares about your happiness as an employee,” adds Surgical Tech Emily Ball, CST, of the friendly, family work environment at Physicians Surgical Hospitals. “It makes you want to go to work. I really feel this is a family here."
This is Physicians Surgical Hospitals fourth year on the list. “At Ardent, we invest in people by providing our hospitals with the freedom and tools to create an environment where employees feel valued and supported and patients receive the highest quality of care,” said Ardent President and Chief Executive Officer David T. Vandewater. “We are honored that our facilities continue to be recognized for their success in creating a culture that not only attracts and retains the very best talent, but also motivates employees to go above and beyond.”
