UMC Health System was ranked among the best places to work in Texas by the Best Companies Group and the Texas Association of Business, which released their annual rankings last week.

UMC ranked third in the large company category for organizations with more than 500 employees. UMC has ranked among the top three companies for nine of the past 10 years, including three years as No. 1. A complete list of winners will appear in the May issue of Texas Monthly.

"Service is our passion, and when you walk through the halls of our hospital, you will see a smile on every face," said Adrienne Cozart, UMC senior vice president for human resources. "The joy our employees have for working here translates into excellent service for our patients as well, which is why UMC is also ranked among the top 10 percent in the nation for patient experience by HealthGrades."

The companies were ranked by the Texas Association of Business, the Texas State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management and Best Companies Group. There were 100 companies ranked overall by varying size.

Employee satisfaction leads to lower employee turnover, which is closely linked with patient satisfaction, safety and quality. An independent survey by Press Ganey found UMC employee satisfaction ranked at the 96h percentile in 2017, compared to hospitals nationwide. It was the ninth-straight year UMC has topped the 90th percentile.

UMC Health System is ranked among the top 10 percent of hospitals in the nation for patient satisfaction by HealthGrades, and has consistently ranked among the best places to work in Texas by the Best Companies Group. More than 400,000 patients a year choose UMC.
