Hospital Places 4th Nationally among Medium-Sized Facilities
BEAUFORT, SC – Beaufort Memorial Hospital (BMH) has placed fourth among medium-sized facilities in Healthcare IT News’ first-ever “Where to Work: BEST Hospital IT Departments.”
“Among other things, the 197 bed hospital’s 22-member IT department finds value in having the full support of hospital leadership and working in a department where fun and achievement go hand-in-hand,” said BMH Chief Information Officer Ed Ricks.
How the Survey Worked
Employees graded their IT departments across 7 categories: day-to-day work, IT team, management, hospital leadership, workplace culture, training and development, and compensation.
Overall, 179 hospitals were nominated for “Where To Work: BEST Hospital IT Departments.” In the end, 75 hospitals qualified, and overall 4,945 IT employees completed the online survey.
From the qualifying hospitals, the program chose the Top 10 large hospitals (351+ beds), the Top 10 medium hospitals (101 to 350 beds) and the Top 5 small hospitals (100 or fewer beds).
