HopeWest is recognized as one of Modern Healthcare’s Top 150 Best Places to Work in Healthcare nationwide. This is the third year HopeWest has participated in this recognition program and the third year to be named as an outstanding employer in the healthcare industry on a national level.

Organizations that empower employees to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services will be honored during the awards dinner on September 28, 2017 in Las Vegas. During this event, official ranking of these organizations will be announced.

Modern Healthcare, a national trade publication, bases results on two surveys conducted of each healthcare company who volunteered to participate. The first is a questionnaire for a participating employer; the second is a satisfaction survey of a company’s employees.

“This report is a great tool for HopeWest to determine what makes a positive impact on our employees and helps us identify areas of growth, so that we can continue to provide an atmosphere conducive to workplace satisfaction,” said Mary Wigington, Vice President of Human Resources. “When our employees are excited to come to work, feel supported in their roles and encouraged to give their best, this satisfaction is reflected in the meaningful interactions experienced by the patients and families we serve.”

HopeWest serves more than 7,000 square miles across western Colorado with five offices and a state-of-the-art HopeWest Hospice Care Center.  With a staff of more than 350 employees, HopeWest provides care to 2,500 patients in the hospice and palliative care programs, in addition to supporting 1,200 individuals coping with grief every year.
