“One year into the pandemic, we’ve seen the industry transform to meet the needs of its patients and employees,” said Aurora Aguilar, Modern Healthcare’s editor. “Time and time again, the most resilient and successful organizations show that empathy towards their staff, clear vision and compassion towards the patient buoys teams and sets them up for success. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for eliciting loyalty from their workforce and communities during harrowing times.”

“Receiving the Best Places to Work award is an honor at any time and especially this year considering everything healthcare has experienced.  As leaders, we strive to do what is best for employees and make this a best place to work every day but there are times you’re  not certain you’re achieving the goal.  This award is validation we must be doing it right.” Says Anna Hayter, Human Resources Director at Wallowa Memorial.  She goes on to say, “Being voted 3 years in a row is inspiring and humbling and makes me truly appreciative to be a part of this incredible family.  Congrats Wallowa Memorial Hospital and Medical Clinics, this is your award!”
