Wabash General Hospital Recognized as Best Place to Work in Illinois for Third Straight Year

(April 11, 2022) Wabash General Hospital (WGH) was recently named as one of the 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois. The awards program began in 2006 and is promoted by The Daily Herald Suburban Business.

WGH President & CEO, Karissa Turner, stated, “Our “People you know, helping people you love” motto is a complete representation of who we are at Wabash General Hospital. Receiving this award for the past three years signifies the importance of our staff working together to make Wabash General Hospital a great place to work and the best place to seek medical care. All 460 staff members should be proud of their accomplishments. When teams support and uplift each other it attracts people who want to play a role on our team. We have been experiencing great things happening for many years and I’m proud to say the tradition continues.”

This statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best places of employment in Illinois, benefiting the state's economy, workforce and businesses. The 2022 Best Places to Work in Illinois list is made up of 46 companies in the small employer category (15-99 U.S. employees), 19 companies in the medium employer category (100-499 U.S. employees), and 15 companies in the large employer category (500 or more U.S. employees). Wabash General Hospital has been named one of the Best Places to Work in Illinois in the medium category.

To be considered for participation, companies had to fulfill the following eligibility requirements:

- Have at least 15 employees working in Illinois;

- Be a for-profit or not-for-profit business or government entity;

- Be a publicly or privately held business;

- Have a facility in the state of Illinois; and

- Be in business a minimum of one year.

Companies from across the state entered the two-part process to determine the Best Places to Work in Illinois. The first part consisted of evaluating each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, and demographics. This part of the process was worth approximately 25% of the total evaluation. The second part consisted of an employee survey to measure the employee experience. This part of the process was worth approximately 75% of the total evaluation. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking. Best Companies Group managed the overall registration and survey process in Illinois and analyzed the data and used their expertise to determine the final rankings.

Wabash General Hospital will be recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in Illinois awards in-person luncheon, coordinated by The Daily Herald Suburban Business on Wednesday, May 11. The final rankings will be announced at the event, posted on the Daily Herald Suburban Business website (dailyherald.com/business), and published in a special commemorative section on June 26. An unranked list of all honorees will be announced in the April 10 issue of the Daily Herald Suburban Business.
