“We believe our associates provide the very best in patient care, and our job is to support them by creating an outstanding work environment,” said Browne. “We are committed to career growth and professional development in-house and through our many community partnerships. We celebrated over 100 promotions last year, and it’s exciting to see individuals grow and be successful. While the pandemic has presented numerous challenges to healthcare institutions, our associates have been amazing through it all. The LMH culture and commitment to our community is second to none. We’ve had to think differently and meet our associates where they are in their needs and wants. We’ve tried to be as flexible as possible with our staff – we implemented telework where we can, we relaxed some policies, and have provided onsite counseling assistance for associates to help and support them. We are very proud of the LMH team.”

In addition to being named as one of the best companies to work in the region, LMH Health was recently awarded its fourth “A” grade from the Leapfrog Group – a nonprofit group that serves as the nation’s premier advocate of transparency in healthcare specific to patient safety.
