opening thoughts NMHS named a best place to work ranked among the top 100 in the nation by modern healthcare M Modern Healthcare’s nationwide search for the best places to work in healthcare leads to Tupelo, home of North Mississippi Health Services (NMHS), a regional healthcare organization that includes North Mississippi Medical Center in Tupelo, five community hospitals and a regional clinic network serving 24 counties in northeast Mississippi and northwest Alabama. This recognition focuses on a combination of employee surveys and responses to questions about the culture of the organization. It serves as external validation that we are continuing to focus on the “right things” on our journey to achieve our vision: to be the provider of the best patient-centered care and health services in America. NMHS was the only Mississippi organization—and one of only a handful in the mid-South—selected for this honor. The listing made its debut in 2008. One of 317 entries in this year’s 100 Best Places ranking, NMHS was selected for this honor on its first attempt. Participation is voluntary and no fee is charged to participate. Employers complete a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees are randomly selected to answer an in-depth set of questions that result in an analysis in eight core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits, and overall satisfaction. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your healthcare needs. Our employees’ dedication to their work is commendable.
