Nurse.org, the web’s leading career site for nurses, has recognized Methodist Health, a Magnet® healthcare organization, as one of the best hospitals for nurses to work for in Kentucky. Over the past two years, Nurse.org has collected more than 1,075 reviews by nurses at 87 Kentucky hospitals about their workplace satisfaction. Reviews in Kentucky have revealed that Methodist Health has one of the highest levels of satisfaction among its nurses.

Reviewers cited caring management, competitive pay, courteous coworkers and an emphasis on education as the basis for the 4.0 star rating with 100% of the nurses surveyed recommending the hospital as an employer.

Phillip Lee, Product Manager at Nurse.org, congratulated Methodist Health on this achievement saying, “We’re excited to be able to recognize Methodist Health as one of the best places to work in the state according to the nurses we surveyed. Out of 87 hospitals, they ranked in the top three for work satisfaction for nurses.”

Kristi Melton, Vice President of Nursing at Methodist Health, said “Methodist Health is honored to have earned this designation. Our nurses play a key role in providing our patients with the highest level of quality care, safety and positive patient experience. We thank each of them for their commitment and dedication to Methodist Health.”

Nurse.org provides a safe platform on which nurses leave honest workplace reviews. Completely anonymous, nurses share their opinions about culture, nurse-to-patient ratios and other matters important to them.

Making the list of top hospitals shows the facility is focused on nurse satisfaction. Nurse recruitment -- a challenge today -- becomes easier when the hospital can demonstrate its commitment to nurses by pointing to an unbiased source.
