Hospice Named Among Best Places to Work in Healthcare | Health
One of the largest hospices in the valley recently received a prestigious national award.
Nathan Adelson Hospice, southern Nevada’s largest non-profit hospice organization, was recognized as one of the “Best Places to Work in Healthcare” for 2011. Chosen by Modern Healthcare, a weekly healthcare business news publication, Nathan Adelson Hospice will be recognized at a gala on Oct. 18 in Chicago. This is the second time the hospice earned the award.
The award is based upon results from an organization-wide Employee Engagement and Satisfaction Survey filled out by Nathan Adelson Hospice employees, as well as employee comments from open-ended questions. Results of the survey were compared to national benchmarking data to identify award winners.
“In order to be a national leader in end-of-life healthcare, we are committed to retaining the highest quality medical professionals, staff and volunteers,” said Carole Fisher, president and chief executive officer of Nathan Adelson Hospice. “From our work environment to employee development and continuing education, we put an emphasis on making Nathan Adelson Hospice an employer of preference and hospice of choice in southern Nevada.”
Nathan Adelson Hospice is the largest non-profit hospice in southern Nevada, caring for an average of 400 patients daily. In 1978, Nathan Adelson Hospice began providing home care hospice service with the mission to offer patients and their loved ones with comprehensive end-of-life care and to influence better care for all in the community. In 1983, Nathan Adelson Hospice opened an in-patient hospice in Las Vegas.
