“But the organizations recognized on this year’s list rose to the top and continued to be a source of strength for their teammates. They have seen their colleagues fall ill to the virus and struggled with the economic impact of the pandemic,” Aguilar said. “The loyalty and trust between employers and their workers is being put to the test now more than ever. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for continuing to serve their workforce and communities during such an unprecedented time.”

KDMC CEO Alvin Hoover is proud of the people with whom he works.

“I’m honored that KDMC has been selected as a best place to work for the fourth year in a row, and eight of the last nine years,” Hoover said. “We have a workforce dedicated to our mission of always providing quality health and wellness in a Christian environment.”

“Throughout the COVID crisis, our employees have shown they know why they chose to be in healthcare, working with purpose, knowing their work is worthwhile and that they are making a difference,” he said. “They have selflessly taken care of our community and have encouraged each other through the toughest of times.”

“‘Proud’ doesn’t begin to describe the incredible feeling of family, teamwork and community I think of when I say ‘KDMC’,” said Celine Craig, KDMC’s chief regulatory and human resource officer. “They are my people and they are who make KDMC the Best Place to Work in Healthcare in Mississippi.”

The award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.

KDMC’s employees will find out their ranking on the list and be celebrated at the virtual awards gala Oct. 8.
