SACRAMENTO — Sutter Davis Hospital is the only medical center in Northern California and Sutter Center for Psychiatry the only mental-health facility in the nation to be named Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2014 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.

Sutter Davis Hospital was named a Best Place to Work in the U.S. for the sixth time.

Sutter Davis Hospital was named a Best Place to Work in the U.S. for the sixth time.

This is the sixth year in a row that Sutter Davis Hospital was honored in the Modern Healthcare Best Places to Work survey, and it is the third time for Sutter Center for Psychiatry to be on the list.

This year, 100 health-care workplaces around the country – representing providers (including hospitals), suppliers, payers and associations– were honored as Best Places to Work in Healthcare, with seven of them being based in California. 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.

“It takes great vision, commitment and compassion to build a collaborative work culture that keeps patients at the center of everything we do,” said Regional President James Conforti of Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region. “Sutter Center for Psychiatry and Sutter Davis Hospital are reflective of the excellent, engaged work environments our staffs have created throughout Northern California.”

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, 69-bed psychiatric facility for children and adults located on Folsom Boulevard and an outpatient center that offers partial hospitalization and other mental health programs on Howe Avenue.

“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,” said John Boyd, chief administrative officer over mental health services for Sutter Health Sacramento Sierra Region. “I’m sure that sense of accomplishment helped greatly in receiving this honor.”

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 the quality care we provide our patients, and to be able to do that in an environment where we care about each other is what makes our hospital one of the best places to work,” said Sutter Davis Hospital CEO Janet Wagner.

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.

An alphabetical list of the 100 companies and organizations is at www.modernhealthcare.com. Modern Healthcare will reveal the ranked order of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2014 at a banquet on Oct. 23 in Chicago and in a special supplement to be published along with the Oct. 27 issue of Modern Healthcare. New this year, Modern Healthcare will present two ranked lists—one for providers/insurers and one for suppliers. And each category will also be broken down by companies based on the number of employees.
