For the second year in a row, Valley Medical Center has been chosen by Seattle Business Monthly Magazine as one of the best places to work in the 2008 Best Places to Work Issue.

Seattle Business Monthly sent surveys to more than 3,000 Puget Sound-area businesses that had been identified as potential Best Places to work. Those businesses with the highest overall scores and the best management practices are included in the June 2008 issue of the magazine. VMC is listed in the Large Companies (500-plus employees) category, along with other Puget Sound employers including Google and Washington Mutual.

“Providing quality health care to our patients is our number one priority,” said Rich Roodman, CEO of Valley Medical Center. “We recognize that the satisfaction of our employees leads to quality care and positive outcomes for our patients. We strive to have constant two-way communication between our leadership team and our employees.”
