Sutter Davis, Sutter Center for Psychiatry Chosen Best Places to Work in Healthcare
Sutter Facilities Alone as Best Places for California Hospitals, U.S. Psychiatric Facilities
SACRAMENTO and DAVIS, Calif. — Sutter Davis is the only hospital in California and Sutter Center for Psychiatry the lone mental-health facility in the United States to be named Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2015 by Modern Healthcare. The award honors U.S. workplaces in health care that enable employees to perform at their optimum level to provide patients and customers with the best possible care, products and services.
This is the seventh year in a row that Sutter Davis Hospital was honored in the Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work survey, and it is the fourth time for Sutter Center for Psychiatry to be on the list.
A total of 100 health-care workplaces around the country – representing providers (including hospitals), suppliers, payers and associations– were honored as Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The two Sutter affiliates are the only ones honored in the greater Sacramento region.
Based on submissions sent in from hundreds of health care organizations across the country, Modern Healthcare examined dozens of workplace issues, from leadership and planning to pay and benefits. A crucial element to the evaluation process was surveys that were sent out to randomly selected employees. These surveys helped Modern Healthcare hear directly from staff about how they feel engaged and empowered in their jobs.
“Sutter Center for Psychiatry and Sutter Davis Hospital are reflective of the excellent, engaged work environments our staffs have created throughout Northern California,” said Valley Area President James Conforti of Sutter Health. “It takes great vision, commitment and compassion to build a collaborative work culture that keeps patients at the center of everything we do.”
Sutter Center for Psychiatry is the only not-for-profit psychiatric hospital in the greater Sacramento region that is part of an integrative health care system. It includes an inpatient, 73-bed psychiatric facility for children and adults and an outpatient center that offers partial hospitalization and other mental health programs.
“It is gratifying for all of us at Sutter Center for Psychiatry to see the fruits of our labors in the positive changes made in our patients’ lives. I’m sure that sense of accomplishment helped greatly in receiving this honor,” said John Boyd, chief administrative officer over mental health services for Sutter Health in the Sacramento region.
Sutter Davis Hospital offers the best of all worlds – a technologically advanced acute-care hospital, a strong offering of outpatient services and community outreach programs. The 48-bed hospital and its programs provide care and support to the residents of Davis, Dixon, Winters, Woodland, West Sacramento, Vacaville and rural communities throughout Yolo and Eastern Solano counties.
“Our focus at Sutter Davis Hospital is on providing the highest level of quality care to our patients, and to be able to do that in an environment of caring and compassion for not only patients but also for our fellow team members makes our hospital one of the best places to work,” said Sutter Davis Hospital CEO Jennifer Maher.
Sutter Center for Psychiatry and Sutter Davis Hospital are part of the Sutter Health network, a not-for-profit, community-based health system located throughout Northern California.
