Newsroom Cox Monett ranks 15 of Best Places to Work in Healthcare Posted by Janell Patton on Sept. 30, 2019 Cox Monett has been ranked as No. 15 on Modern Healthcare’s 2019 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, making it one of the top places to work in the entire United States. This is the second consecutive year the hospital has made the prestigious list, jumping from its ranking of 39 in 2018. “To move up this quickly is quite an amazing accomplishment,” said Darren Bass, president of Cox Monett. “The culture we have built continues to shine through our employees; they are highly engaged and take great care of our patients. I am so proud of them.” 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 the elite group. Modern Healthcare and its Best Places to Work in Healthcare award winners have accomplished much over the years, empowering healthcare organizations, and the people who work for them, to realize their full potential. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. The complete list of this year’s winner rankings is available here. “With record unemployment levels, organizations face stiff competition to attract and retain top talent. The providers and companies making this year’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare list understand the importance of creating an environment where employees can not only excel in their own development but contribute to the mission of improving care delivery,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare. “An appreciation—and dedication—to their organization’s mission was one of the most common refrains from employees filling out surveys this year.” Cox Monett learned of their ranking at the 2019 Best Places to Work Awards Dinner on Thursday, September 26, at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring ranked lists of all the winners along with the September 30 issue.
