St. Francis Hospital Is Selected One of the Best Places to Work in New York State

Roslyn, N.Y., January 18, 2008 - St. Francis Hospital, The Heart Center® has been chosen as one of the 30 best workplaces in the state in the first annual “Best Places to Work in New York” competition. The Hospital placed among 15 winners in the “Large-sized Companies” category and was the only hospital to make the elite list.

The program is conducted by the New York State Society for Human Resource Management (NYS-SHRM) state council, in conjunction with the Best Companies Group, an independent company that manages “Best Places to Work” surveys in many states throughout the country. Winners are selected in two categories: small/medium sized companies of 25 to 250 employees and large-sized companies of over 250 employees.

According to the council, the program is similar to the famous Fortune magazine list highlighting the “100 Best Companies to Work for in America.” It is designed to identify and recognize the state’s best employers who strive to create and build better workplaces for their employees.

Barry Manus, Chairman of the NYS SHRM’s Best Companies initiative, said, “The goal of the program is to heighten company pride, bolster employee morale, raise company visibility and increase the bottom line.”

“This award is the latest in a series of recent honors recognizing our reputation for excellence, and our employees are the driving force behind it,” said Alan D. Guerci, M.D., President and CEO. “They help make St. Francis a premier place to work.”

“We are delighted to receive this recognition,” said Akram Boutros, M.D., EVP and Chief Administrative Officer of the Hospital. “Our mission has always been to attract top talent and create a workplace culture that enables our employees to provide the best patient care.”

The winners will be honored at a gala awards dinner on April 10th in Albany, at which time the final rankings will be announced. For more information, visit
