GRAND JUNCTION, Colo., Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HopeWest has been recognized as one of Modern Healthcare's Top 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare nationwide, ranked number 54, among hundreds of organizations that participated across the country.

Modern Healthcare, a national trade publication, honors workplaces throughout the healthcare industry that empower employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services. Of the criteria used to determine rank in the Best Places to Work in Healthcare assessment, 75% is the result of anonymous employee surveys.

HopeWest was also ranked #21 in the category of Healthcare Providers and was the highest ranking hospice of the hospice organizations represented. This is the second consecutive year HopeWest has received this award.

"The commitment we have to our mission of helping patients and families across the Western Slope is what drives our dedication to our employees and to creating a great place to work," said Christy Whitney Borchard, President and CEO of HopeWest.

Modern Healthcare revealed the ranked order of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2016 at a banquet in October in New Orleans during Modern Healthcare's "Workplace of the Future" conference. Borchard joined three other CEOs participating in a panel "Best Workplace Secrets: Tips from All-Stars." The panel provided a peek behind the curtain at some of the organizations on Modern Healthcare's Best Places to Work list. Company leaders shared their insights on creating standout workplace cultures and discussed what works and what to avoid.

"I wasn't surprised that HopeWest was recognized for being a great place to work," said Holly Howell, Director of Palliative Care and employee of HopeWest for more than 8 years. "HopeWest is an amazing organization and the people who work here are passionate about the mission. It is so much more than a workplace, you feel like you're part of a family."

"In order to provide the best care to our community we want to have employees that are happy, feel valued and are fulfilled from what they do," said Borchard. "We truly care about our employees and believe in wellness for the whole person - providing support to employees mentally, physically, socially, emotionally and spiritually – through a multitude of programs, services and education available to employees."
