McLaren Health Plan among best places to work in healthcare

Modern Healthcare honor based on employee feedback

— McLaren Health Plan is among the nation’s best places to work in healthcare in 2010, according to its employees and Modern Healthcare magazine.

Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level.

“We are thrilled to receive this prestigious recognition,” said Kathy Kendall, president and CEO of McLaren Health Plan. “Our team truly cares about the service they provide to our members and providers. Creating an excellent work environment is our way of showing we appreciate everything they do.”

The Best Places to Work in Healthcare program collects information from both the employer and employees and is open to companies with at least 25 employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics.

Employees were asked in-depth questions that resulted in an analysis in 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.

Specific rankings are revealed live on Oct. 18 at a special awards gala in Dallas, Texas.

The Modern Healthcare award is the second workplace honor McLaren Health Plan has received within the past year. In April, the organization earned The Morehead Apex Workplace of Distinction which is awarded annually to healthcare organizations that have reached and sustained 90 percentile on their employee engagement surveys in 2009.

McLaren Health Plan covers businesses and residents in 28 counties throughout northern, southeast, and mid-Michigan. The health plan’s provider network includes more than 42 hospitals, 9,700 physicians, and other health care providers. McLaren Health Plan is a subsidiary of McLaren Health Care, one of the largest fully integrated health care systems in Michigan.
