Green Bay, Wis. – Hospital Sisters Health System (HSHS), which includes HSHS St. Vincent Hospital and HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan and HSHS St. Clare Memorial Hospital in Oconto Falls, has been named one of the ‘150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare’ in the U.S. in 2022 by Becker’s Healthcare.
Becker’s Healthcare is a leading resource for health care leaders that provides business news, analysis and guidance related to health care topics to ensure leaders have an opportunity to learn, exchange ideas and further conversations about the most critical issues in American health care.
This Top 150 distinction recognizes HSHS’ high employee engagement, commitment to diversity in the workforce and professional development opportunities for colleagues and leaders.
“These kinds of recognitions are wonderful, but we will not stop here,” says Damond Boatwright, HSHS President and CEO. “We will continue to improve on our professional development, diversity and inclusion, colleague engagement, workplace culture and more at HSHS. There is always – and I mean always – room for growth and improvement. We will strive to be even better for the benefit of our colleagues and the patients and communities we serve.”
Boatwright is approaching his one-year anniversary at the helm of HSHS. He began serving as President and CEO in June 2021.
“I know I am biased, but this recognition from Becker’s just simply highlights what I already knew in my first year here – we have amazing people, unique benefits that promote wellness, opportunities for growth and a great workplace culture,” he says. “I’m so proud to be part of the HSHS family and that we’ve been recognized as one of the best in the country.”
Andy Bagnall, President and CEO of HSHS Wisconsin, says besides providing exceptional health care to our patients, our colleagues are dedicated to the mission of the Hospital Sisters.
“Their devotion shines brightly in our facilities,” he says. “It’s important to thank our colleagues for the work they do every day. High colleague engagement is something we strive to achieve and value as an organization just as much as our core values of respect, care, competence and joy.”
HSHS is headquartered in Springfield, Illinois and comprises nine hospitals and 183 clinics in Illinois and six hospitals in Wisconsin. HSHS employs approximately 13,000 individuals across both states – 8,600 in Illinois and 4,400 in Wisconsin.
