Iowa Health System, Trinity’s parent organization, has been honored as one of the "100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare" by Becker’s Hospital Review. The annual list is developed through nominations and research, and IHS was selected for its demonstrated excellence in providing a work environment that promotes teamwork, professional development and quality patient care. Four Quad-City area hospitals – Trinity Bettendorf, Trinity Moline, Trinity Rock Island, and Trinity Muscatine – are part of Iowa Health System.

All organizations that are placed on the list undergo a substantial review with other peers and throughBecker’s independent research.

From the Becker’s list: “Iowa Health System president and CEO Bill Leaver likes to say the system is working on creating 20,000 scientists, citing Iowa Health’s commitment to training its employees to eliminate waste and remove variability. Employees have the opportunity to develop skills through the system's ManagementLeadership Academy and Physician Leadership Academy; upon completion of the latter, graduation physicians will be close to earning their master's degree.”

IHS was also recognized for its annual Leadership Symposium, which this April brought together more than 1,000 managers, directors and clinicians, giving employees the chance to share best practices with leaders from across Iowa and western Illinois.  Another distinguishing feature of IHS is its unique focus on creating a healthy workforce.

“Great employees make for a great place to work,” Leaver said. “I’m proud that our system is able to provide an environment that encourages our employees’ excellence and satisfaction. This leads directly to great care for our patients.”

Becker’s Hospital Review is a bi-monthly publication, offering business and legal news and analysis about hospitals and health systems. The content is geared toward high-level hospital leaders. Each issue reaches more than 15,000 health care leaders, primarily CEOs and CFOs.
