Lee’s Summit Medical Center (LSMC)—part of HCA Midwest Health, Kansas City’s leading healthcare provider—was named this week as one of Becker Hospital Review’s “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.” The prestigious recognition honors both healthcare providers as well as other types of healthcare-specific companies, such as consulting firms, health IT vendors, medical societies and more. A version of this list has been published every year since 2011.
The organizations featured on the list were selected by the Becker's Hospital Review editorial team based on workforce-centric awards received, benefits offerings, wellness initiatives, and efforts to improve professional development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance and a sense of community and unity among employees.
Lee’s Summit Medical Center is one of only two hospitals in the Kansas City area to make Becker’s list, and one of only three hospitals in Missouri, and joins many nationally recognized organizations such as Baptist Healthcare and Cleveland Clinic.
“Lee’s Summit Medical Center is honored to once again be recognized as one of the area’s best employers in the healthcare industry,” says Matt Sogard, FACHE, Chief Executive Officer, Lee’s Summit Medical Center. “Fostering a healthy, productive, proactive work place underscores our mission to provide the best of care, closer to home. We are committed to high-quality and compassionate patient care to every person who comes through our doors. I am grateful for our dedicated, enthusiastic employees and their unwavering commitment.”
LSMC was the only healthcare organization in the Kansas City area and the state of Missouri named by Modern Healthcare in September 2014 to its prestigious “100 Best Places to Work” list.
LSMC is a full-service, patient-family centered care hospital, offering comprehensive healthcare through building partnerships with patients and families in order to best meet their needs—from outpatient and preventative services including colonoscopies, mammograms and calcium scoring scans—to state-of-the-art surgical and treatment options for chronic health conditions such as spine and joint pain.
