LAS VEGAS – Nathan Adelson Hospice, Southern Nevada’s largest, oldest and only non-profit hospice, has once again been recognized nationally as one of the “Best Places to Work in Healthcare” for 2019. Chosen by Modern Healthcare, a top national healthcare business news publication, Nathan Adelson Hospice will be recognized at an awards gala on Monday, September 26 in Dallas, Texas. This is the eighth time in the last decade the hospice has received this notable honor.
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.
“Receiving this recognition for an unprecedented eighth time is a tremendous honor,” said Nathan Adelson Hospice President and CEO, Carole Fisher. “It emphasizes how much our entire staff values excellence in the workplace. These attributes are a critical asset in our work to ensure no one ends the journey of life alone, afraid or in pain.”
