Baylor Health Care System Named Among 2009 Best Places to Work in Healthcare
Date:9/16/2009

DALLAS, Sept. 17 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the second consecutive year, Baylor Health Care System has been named among the 100 best places to work in healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine.

"I find our employees deeply engaged in their jobs, knowing they have the tools and training to provide safe, quality, compassionate care to everyone who comes to our facilities," says Joel Allison, president and CEO, Baylor Health Care System. "I'm proud to say that I work for Baylor Health Care System and it is a great honor and tribute to our healthcare team to receive this national recognition."

Three-hundred and seventeen (317) healthcare companies participated in this year's healthcare workplace listing, which is a 34% increase over 2008.

Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a PA-based firm that administers "best places to work" programs nationwide. Modern Healthcare conducted this program to recognize outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level. From economic development to employee retention, being named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare benefits individuals, organizations and the healthcare industry.

The program collected information from both the employer and employees and was open to all companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked an in-depth set of questions that resulted in an analysis in 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.

Baylor Health Care System, which began in 1903 as a small East Dallas hospital, has evolved into a comprehensive network of facilities in North Texas. The system is comprised of 15 hospitals --including a preeminent academic medical center -- 6 short-stay surgical hospitals, more than 100 primary and specialty care clinics, a network of physician practices, a dozen rehabilitation clinics, 4 senior health centers and 18 ambulatory surgery centers. More than one million patients annually seek care at Baylor institutions to preserve or restore health.

Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas is the flagship hospital for the Baylor system. In addition to providing quality care and serving as one of two, adult level one trauma centers in North Texas, Baylor Dallas prepares doctors, nurses and medical specialist for their careers. Annually, approximately 200 interns, residents and fellows enroll in the training programs at Baylor Dallas and 18 pursue the Baylor Family Medicine Residency Program at Baylor Medical Center at Garland.

Baylor also has been named among the "Best Places to Work" four times since 2006 by the Dallas Business Journal.

Baylor employs approximately 19,500 people in Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, and Ellis, Denton, and Terrell counties and has more than 3,000 physicians on active medical staff. In fiscal year 2008, Baylor reported $446 million in community benefit to the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Physicians are members of the medical staff at one of Baylor Health Care System's subsidiary, community or affiliated medical centers and are neither employees nor agents of those medical centers, Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas or Baylor Health Care System.
