Texas Health Resources Named One of 'Best Places to Work in IT'|
ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Health Resources has been selected for the fourth consecutive year by Computerworld magazine as one of the top 100 workplaces for information technology (IT) professionals. Texas Health placed No. 19 on the list, up from 34 in 2010.
Since 1994, Computerworld’s annual “Best Places to Work in IT” feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. Texas Health is one of only ten health providers recognized.
“Our skilled information technology professionals are absolutely critical in helping our health system serve North Texans’ health care needs,” said Stephen C. Hanson, Texas Health senior executive vice president for system growth and integration. “Finding and taking care of our dedicated workers is a top priority at Texas Health.”
Texas Health information technology professionals, like all system employees, are encouraged to take care of themselves to be more productive for work, family and personal responsibilities. Programs at Texas Health that help employees with this include:
In addition to benefits enjoyed by all Texas Health employees, IT professionals benefit from programs such as Connections, in which they spend at least a half day with a clinician annually. The program reinforces the impact that staffers’ jobs have on patient care. Additionally, many project teams work from home, taking advantage of social networking to build productivity. Employee development is pervasive and includes mentoring programs.
“At Texas Health we believe in working hard, working smart and celebrating together. Knowing that we care for our co-workers and they want the best for us helps build the spirit of compassion that is essential in the health care profession,” said Edward Marx, Texas Health chief information officer.
