HOLLYWOOD, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Memorial Healthcare System has been named one of Modern Healthcare magazine’s 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare, ranking #3 nationwide among large companies of 1,000 or more employees. Memorial was the only healthcare provider in Florida to make the large-company list.

Healthcare employers from across the country participated in the Best Places to Work in Healthcare program, which is conducted by Modern Healthcare in partnership with Best Companies Group and sponsored by the Studer Group.

“For 60 years now, Memorial has worked to attract and retain the most dedicated and qualified employees in healthcare, and we know what it takes to do that,” says Frank V. Sacco, FACHE, Memorial’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “As a large public healthcare system, Memorial is proud to rank so highly compared to other best-in-class employers.”

In addition to ranking third among the 11 companies in the large-employers category, Memorial ranked 37th on the full list of 100 Best Places.

Memorial had the second-highest net patient revenue in the nation among public healthcare systems on the Truven list, which is among the most well-known and respected “best” lists in healthcare.
