FCMC Recognized as a Top 100 CAH and Top 150 Places to Work in Healthcare for 2018

For the second year in a row, Franklin County Medical Center (FCMC) earns recognition as both a Top 100 Critical Access Hospital (CAH) and as a 150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare by Becker’s Hospital Review. The distinctions are welcomed news to the hospital and its employees who work tirelessly to provide hospitality and excellence in healthcare services to a rural community.

Rural Roots, National Prominence

Beckers’ Hospital Review is a national industry publication that offers up-to-date business analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Its annual list of Top 100 Critical Access Hospitals in the United States relies on nominations and voting of other peers across the country. According to the Becker’s website, “hospitals included in this list are top performers in managing risk, achieving higher quality, securing better outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction and operating at a lower cost than their peers.” For FCMC, the honor comes on the heels of an expansion project to increase the size and abilities of the hospital campus. “We are committed to continuously improving the quality of healthcare and services to our community. Being recognized as a Top 100 CAH is due to the staff and physicians that provide patient-centered, coordinated care with the high standards of safety and quality,” stated CEO Darin Dransfield.

Employee Satisfaction, Achieving Work/Life Balance in Healthcare

Also for the second year in a row, FCMC has made Becker’s 150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare. Like many hospitals and healthcare providers, ensuring employees are cared for professionally and personally, leads to a better work/life balance which in turn positively impacts the level of care provided. According to the Becker’s Hospital Review press release, organizations on the list “promote diversity within the workforce, employee engagement, and professional growth.” As the largest employer in the county, the recognition as a top place to work is of special significance in the hospital leadership team that strives to provide several avenues for growth to employees. Director of HR, Courtney Dursteler, pointed out that “we’ve worked extremely hard to hire and retain quality people. By offering a competitive benefit package, introducing internal programs such as scholarships for continuing education, and opportunities to be active in the community, we are also seeing a higher quality of life outside of work.”
