HealthEast Care System Named 'Best Place to Work' by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal

ST. PAUL, MN--(Marketwire - Aug 4, 2011) - HealthEast Care System has been named one of Minnesota's "Best Places to Work" by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal for the sixth time. The Business Journal had nearly 250 Minnesota companies apply for the award this year.

"Receiving the 'Best Places to Work' award is evidence of our success in pursuing the HealthEast employee strategy, which is an important cornerstone to achieving our vision of 'creating the best health care experience through a passion for caring and service,'" said Tim Hanson, HealthEast CEO and President. "HealthEast is one of the best places to work because of great employees who provide high quality, compassionate care for our patients."

HealthEast achieved this honor based on low employee turnover and high patient, employee and physician satisfaction. The award was also based on great results from the many employees who completed The Business Journal's forty-question survey.

Being named a "Best Place to Work" correlates with HealthEast achieving its milestone quality goal in the Twin Cities by 2010. HealthEast's goal is to be the first choice for customers, physicians and employees.
