Newsroom Cox Monett named one of the nation’s top 150 Best Places to Work in Healthcare Posted by Janell Patton on June 12, 2019 For the second consecutive year, Cox Monett has been named as one of the nation’s top 150 Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare. The recognition program honors workplaces throughout the health care industry that empower employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services. The 2019 list of recognized companies can be found here. "We are honored once again to be named as one of the nation's best places to work in health care," said Dr. Darren Bass, president of Cox Monett. “If you ask our staff what makes Cox Monett a great place to work, they will tell you it’s because of our family atmosphere — we support and empower one another to be the best we can be.” Cox Monett is the only critical access hospital in Missouri selected for this award, and one of only two hospitals in Missouri to be named to this prestigious list. This award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. Cox Monett was selected for this national recognition based on elements such as competitive employee benefits, employee satisfaction and innovative organizational culture. The Modern Healthcare recognition comes after CoxHealth announced last week that the health system was named as one of America's Best Employers in 2019. The first-ever ranking by Forbes of the top employers by state has CoxHealth as No. 18 in Missouri out of all industry types, the No. 3 health system in Missouri out of 156 hospitals in the state, and the No. 1 best health care employer in southwest Missouri. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring ranked lists of all the winners along with the Sept. 30 issue. Four hospital staff members will represent Cox Monett at the awards gala on Thursday, Sept. 26 at the Renaissance Dallas. A celebration will be held at the hospital later this month.
