Saint Joseph Martin among ‘Best Places to Work in Kentucky’

Staff Report

MARTIN — Saint Joseph Martin, part of KentuckyOne Health, earned a place on the 12th Annual Best Places to Work in Kentucky list, which identifies and recognizes Kentucky’s best employers. Saint Joseph Martin was recognized in the small companies category, with 15-149 employees, and was one of three KentuckyOne Health facilities that made the list statewide.

The Kentucky Chamber of Commerce and the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management recently released the Kentucky list, presented by Kentucky Career Center and the State Information Data Exchange System. The selection process, managed by Best Companies Group, is based on an assessment of the company’s employee policies and procedures and the results of an internal employee survey.

The Best Places to Work in Kentucky competition is a multi-year initiative designed to motivate companies in the Commonwealth to focus, measure and move their workplace environments toward excellence. Studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work. The initiative is based on FORTUNE magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work for in America” list.

“It is an honor to be named one of Kentucky’s Best Places to Work,” said Saint Joseph Martin President Kathy Stumbo. “We certainly have a wonderful team and it’s rewarding to see that through their honest feedback, and a review of our policies and procedures, that our facility has been recognized.”

Saint Joseph Martin is a Critical Access Hospital (CAH) located in Martin, Ky. Saint Joseph Martin is designated as a rural CAH that serves Floyd and surrounding counties. In addition to the hospital, Saint Joseph Martin operates four rural health clinics. Saint Joseph Martin is part of KentuckyOne Health, the largest health system in Kentucky.

In addition to Saint Joseph Martin, other KentuckyOne Health facilities named to the Best Places to Work in Kentucky list include Saint Joseph Jessamine in Jessamine County and Our Lady of Peace in Louisville.
