Press release from Best Places to Work in Kentucky:
Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center has been honored as one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky in 2014. This is the second year in a row the Grayson County hospital has received the recognition. The Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management (KYSHRM), in conjunction with the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, honored the winners in the Tenth Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition at an awards dinner in April at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center.
“Being named a Best Place to Work in Kentucky is a wonderful tribute to our staff. We’re blessed with not only a highly skilled and knowledgeable staff, but one that also cares for their patients and co-workers,” stated Wayne Meriwether, MHA, Chief Executive Officer at Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center. “Our people make the difference and they are what make Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center a great hospital right here at home.”
This is the second time in less than 2 months that TLRMC has been recognized for the quality of its workplace. In May, Becker's Healthcare, a national healthcare journal, included TLRMC in its 2014 "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare," a list of the best healthcare facilities to work in the United States. This is the also the second year in a row TLRMC has received this honor from Becker’s Healthcare.
This year is the first in which the small/medium category has been divided, creating three categories – small companies of 15-149 employees, medium companies of 150-499 employees and large companies consisting of more than 500 employees based in Kentucky. TLRMC is classified as a medium sized company. The selection process, managed by Best Companies Group, is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.
The Best Places to Work competition is a multi-year initiative designed to motivate companies in the Commonwealth to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. Numerous studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work. The Best Places to Work in Kentucky initiative is based on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America”
