For the fourth year in a row, Modern Healthcare has selected Carolina Caring as one of its Best Places to Work in Healthcare. The nonprofit serious illness care provider is being recognized for leveraging a profoundly engaged workforce to create a culture of excellence that consistent­ly delivers innovative, compassion­ate care. In 2021, Carolina Caring ranked No. 4 on the list. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring a ranked list of all the winners in its Oct. 3 issue.

This award program identifies and recognizes outstandin­g employers in the healthcare industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.

“We are so proud to be recognized as an organizati­on where our employees feel valued for their contributi­ons,” says President and CEO Dana Killian. “We see firsthand how they go above and beyond every day in caring deeply about the people we serve.”

“After the many stressors placed on the healthcare workforce during the pandemic and the resulting Great Resignatio­n, we know those employees are battling burnout, increased work volumes and their own physical and mental health challenges,” said Modern Healthcare Publisher Fawn Lopez. “The organizati­ons that have focused significan­t resources and energy to support their staff throughout these especially challengin­g times deserve the loyalty of their teams and the recognitio­n of the entire industry.”
