Mission Hills hospital rated 4th in the state in Nurse.org’s Best Hospitals For Nurses tally

Nurse.org, a leading career web site for nurses, recognized Providence Holy Cross Medical Center this week as one of the best hospitals for nurses to work for in California. Over the past two years, Nurse.org has collected more than 1,854 reviews by nurses at 314 California hospitals about their workplace satisfaction.

Reviews for California hospitals show Providence Holy Cross Medical Center has one of the highest levels of satisfaction among its nurses. It ranked fourth in the state, and was the only hospital in the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys to make the list.

“I have never worked with a more professional, innovative and quality nurse team,” said Anna Chiotti, the hospital’s chief nursing officer. “Our nurses practice excellence and compassion every day, they’re eager to seek new ways to improve patient care and they thrive on teamwork, learning from one another.”

Reviewers cited “safe working environment,” “hard working staff” and “great support” as the basis for the 4.6 star rating, with 100 percent of the nurses surveyed recommending the hospital as an employer.

Providence Holy Cross has been a Magnet Hospital for 10 years, a designation from the American Nurses’ Credentialing Center awarded just 6 percent of hospitals across the nation. There are just 389 Magnet hospitals in the U.S., 26 in California. The designation indicate top quality nursing, based on a number of criteria, including ambitious nurse research programs aimed at improving patient care. Holy Cross also advocate for patient and employee safety, creating policies to ensure high reliability.

Phillip Lee, Nurse.org’s product manager, congratulated Providence Holy Cross on its achievement saying, “We’re excited to be able to recognize Providence Holy Cross Medical Center as one of the best workplaces for nurses in California. 100 percent of the nurses we have surveyed recommend it to their colleagues.”

Nurse.org provides a safe platform on which nurses leave honest workplace reviews. Completely anonymous, nurses share their opinions about culture, nurse-to-patient ratios, and other matters important to them.

Making the list of top hospitals shows the facility is focused on nurse satisfaction. Nurse recruitment -- a challenge today -- becomes easier when the hospital can demonstrate its commitment to nurses by pointing to an unbiased source.
