Information from UMC Health System

UMC Health System was named the best place to work in Texas by the Best Companies Group and the Texas Association of Business. They released their annual rankings Thursday night.

UMC moved back into the top spot 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 ten years. This is the third time UMC is ranked No. 1; UMC ranked No. 1 in 2013 and 2015. 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 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 now also ranked among the top 5 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.

UMC Health System has developed a strong and enduring culture, adhering to the motto Service is Our Passion, our 'why.' This sustains UMC as the employer of choice—consistently ranking among the best places to work in Texas by the Best Companies Group – and the provider of choice – ranking among the top 5 percent of hospitals in the nation for patient experience by HealthGrades. More than 300,000 patients a year choose UMC.
