Date:5/21/2009

AUSTIN, Texas, May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- St. David's HealthCare was named the number one Best Place to Work among large employers for the third consecutive year at the Austin Business Journal's annual "Best Places to Work" event held Thursday, May 21, 2009.

"Being named a 'Best Place to Work' is a tribute to the staff, nurses, physicians, volunteers and hospital administrators at St. David's HealthCare; our business is a team effort, and this honor reflects that," Jon M. Foster, Chief Executive Officer, St. David's HealthCare, said. "The collaborative environment at St. David's HealthCare defines our culture and enables us to provide excellent patient care."

Winners of the "Best Places to Work" awards were selected based on anonymous surveys completed by employees. Out of the more than 150 nominees, 50 winners were selected in three categories -- small, medium and large employers. In the large employer category, 10 winners were named in rank order, with St. David's HealthCare earning the number one spot.

In its description of St. David's HealthCare, the Austin Business Journal noted: "For St. David's, making sure employees can communicate easily with management is key to retention and maintaining a nurturing company culture." A program that helps new nurses advance into specialty care -- one of the numerous education opportunities offered at the St. David's Institute for Learning -- was just one of the initiatives that set St. David's HealthCare apart from other employers.

The "Best Places to Work" honor is among many awards earned by St. David's HealthCare for creating an optimum work environment. All five St. David's facilities are recipients of the prestigious Texas Hospital Association Nurse-Friendly(TM) hospital designation. In 2008, St. David's HealthCare was named one of the "100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare" by Modern Healthcare. That same year, St. David's HealthCare received the Texas Award for Performance Excellence, the highest honor bestowed by the State of Texas based on world-class quality measures.
