May 02, 2022 

Becker's Healthcare recently released the "150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare | 2022" list, which highlights hospitals, health systems and healthcare companies that promote diversity within the workforce, employee engagement and professional growth.

This year, Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS) was among the esteemed honorees for going above and beyond to foster a great workplace culture, benefits and colleague satisfaction.

“As a faith-based hospital ministry, HSHS encourages colleagues to develop a deep personal connection with their patients and with each other. We are a growing community that cares for the patients that put their trust in us, the family that supports them, the community where we live and work, and the colleagues we work alongside,” said Theresa Rutherford, president and CEO of HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital in Decatur. “That extra special care, along with our dedicated and talented medical providers, is what sets us apart from other hospital systems. We are a team of colleagues that are stronger together, and committed to the core values of Respect, Care, Competence and Joy.”

“Working for HSHS means being part of a positive culture that focuses on the wellbeing of our patients, but also encourages the wellbeing of our physicians, providers and colleagues,” says Melinda Clark, president and chief executive officer of HSHS Medical Group and Prairie Cardiovascular, the Illinois physician groups of HSHS. “Our core values of Respect, Care, Competence and Joy influence every interaction within the HSHS family. Caring for one another empowers and energizes our colleagues as they care for patients.”

HSHS offers opportunities to build successful careers above and beyond the average healthcare provider or company; HSHS encourages professional development and promotes leadership from within. HSHS also offers unique wellness and personal benefits to ensure colleagues strike a positive work/life balance as well as colleague recognition programs to highlight their accomplishments.
