Louisville, KY (October 21 2011) Trilogy Health Services has been named one of the 2011 Best Places to Work (BPTW) in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare magazine for a third consecutive year. Modern Healthcare revealed the specific rankings, from 1 to 100, in an awards program held on October 18th in Chicago, Illinois. Trilogy was ranked as the #26 best place to work in healthcare in the nation out of 327 health care organizations that participated in the program.

Modern Healthcare’s program collects information from both employers and employees, and is open to all healthcare companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees. Employers complete a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics, and employees are asked an in-depth set of questions that result in an analysis of eight core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.

According to Modern Healthcare, only 38 percent of Best Places to Work in Healthcare applicants land on the Top 100 list for two consecutive years; a much smaller percentage being named for three consecutive years or more.

“We are excited and pleased to receive such great recognition for the third year in a row,” commented Randy Bufford, President and CEO of Trilogy. “Our commitment to a servant leadership culture and our dedication to providing exceptional customer service that exceeds our customers’ and employees’ expectations are the cornerstones of Trilogy’s operating philosophy. We value the fact that our employees have given us their stamp of approval, and I am so proud of everyone for their contribution.” Bufford continued, “I am honored and truly humbled to lead such an outstanding team of healthcare professionals."

John Eckman, Vice President of Human Resources for Trilogy, added, “We are honored to be recognized among the best in the nation. We have a great team who truly cares for one another and embraces our culture of exceeding the expectations of those we serve. It just creates a type of environment that makes work fun and extremely rewarding.”
