University HealthSystem Consortium Recognized as a Company That Cares for Sixth Year in a Row
Date:7/21/2009

OAK BROOK, Ill., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 2003, the University HealthSystem Consortium (UHC) has earned a place on the Companies That Care Honor Roll, making this the sixth consecutive year. The Honor Roll publicly recognizes and celebrates all organizations that value employees and are committed to community service.

All Honor Roll recipients must exhibit 10 characteristics, which include:

  • Sustaining a work environment founded on dignity and respect for all employees
  • Developing great leaders, at all levels, who excel at managing people as well as results
  • Encouraging individual pursuit of work-life balance

In addition to meeting these standards, UHC organized successful community service initiatives in 2008:

  • Cleaning the York Woods Forest Preserve in Oak Brook, Ill
  • Collecting school supplies as part of the Kits for Kidz program for children attending Chicago public schools
  • Purchasing books for students at Madison Elementary School in Lombard, Ill
  • Conducting a toy drive for Hope Children's Hospital and Shriners Hospital for Children
  • Hosting a dinner for homeless individuals to support Public Action to Deliver Shelter at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church in Villa Park, Ill

In 2008, UHC leaders also helped employees perform at a high level during these turbulent economic times, demonstrated a commitment to continuous improvement, worked to redeploy many employees to other roles when programmatic changes were made, and recognized outstanding work performed by employees by hosting a variety of appreciation programs.

"Placement on the Companies That Care Honor Roll for 6 years in a row is truly a great accomplishment for UHC," said Irene M. Thompson, UHC president and chief executive officer. "UHC is dedicated to providing its employees with a stimulating and dynamic environment to perform meaningful work that helps improve health care nationwide."
