KDMC Among Fortune's 100 Best Companies to Work For

Fortune 2009FORTUNE announced Thursday that King’s Daughters Medical Center (KDMC), for the second consecutive year, has been recognized as a “100 Best Companies to Work For.” The full results of the 12th annual listing are available today at FORTUNE.com/bestcompanies, and will be featured in the Feb. 2 issue of FORTUNE magazine.

KDMC, who ranks 45th among the “Best Companies,” was the third highest ranked hospital on the 2009 list and the only company based in Kentucky and West Virginia. The list includes all industries.

“The fact that we’ve been able to build an environment that repeatedly achieves state and national acclaim with regard to our key priorities speaks volumes about our talented team members and our medical center,” said KDMC President/CEO Fred Jackson. “Technology, facilities and training are all important to the Medical Center; but in reality, it is our nearly 4,000 team members who make it happen,” Jackson said.

KDMC is the largest employer between Charleston, W.Va., and Lexington, Ky. The medical center also has a 93-percent employee retention rate – one of the best in the nation for the hospital industry.

To select the “100 Best Companies to Work For,” FORTUNE coordinates with the Great Place to Work® Institute--a global research and consulting firm with offices in 30 countries--to conduct the most extensive employee survey in corporate America.

More than 81,000 employees from 353 companies responded to the 57-question survey created by the Institute. Two-thirds of a company’s score is based on the survey, which is sent to a minimum of 400 randomly-selected employees. The remaining third is based on a company’s responses to the Culture Audit questionnaire, which asks detailed questions about demographics, pay and benefits, and open-ended questions on philosophy, communication and more.

FORTUNE is a global leader in business journalism with a worldwide circulation of more than 1 million and a readership of nearly 5 million, with major franchises including the FORTUNE 500 and the FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For.

Also announced this week, for the third consecutive year, KDMC has earned a spot in the Top 25 Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition for large-sized companies (250 employees or more). The actual ranking compared to Kentucky’s other employers will be announced on April 21.

The Best Places to Work in Kentucky program recognizes and rewards Kentucky’s best employers. The process to select the top employers includes a two-part examination of an organization’s work culture. The first part asks for documentation of policies, procedures and data about the workforce and things that differentiate a company from all other employers. The second portion asks randomly-selected team members in-depth questions about what it’s like to work at their company.
