Fort HealthCare has been selected by Modern Healthcare, a national publication, as one of the 2020 Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The complete list of this year’s winners, in alphabetical order, is available at ModernHealthcare.com/bestplaceslist. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring a ranked list of all the winners along with the October 12 issue.

“It has been an especially trying year for the world, and healthcare in particular as COVID-19 ravages our communities and your workplaces,” said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare’s editor. “But the organizations recognized on this year’s list rose to the top and continued to be a source of strength for their teammates. They have seen their colleagues fall ill to the virus and struggled with the economic impact of the pandemic. The loyalty and trust between employers and their workers is being put to the test now more than ever. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for continuing to serve their workforce and communities during such an unprecedented time.”

“I am so happy and proud of our employees and their engagement with Fort HealthCare. Working together, they have created a culture that is collaborative and supportive of each other. They are so deserving of this recognition!” said Mike Wallace, President and CEO of Fort HealthCare. In addition, Nancy Alstad, Senior Director of Human Resources stated “The resilience of our employees in this unprecedented time speaks volumes about our culture. We are so proud of the way everyone has adapted to the changing needs of healthcare during this pandemic.”
