New Orleans, LA — Tulane Health System, which includes Tulane Medical Center, Tulane Lakeside Hospital and Lakeview Regional Medical Center, has been named a 2019 Top Workplace by The Advocate/Times-Picayune. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a Top Workplace in New Orleans, where there are so many choices in healthcare,” said Randy Moresi, Tulane Health System’s interim CEO. “The values our employees uphold – truth, compassion, accountability, respect and excellence – are the backbone of our system. And when patients see happy employees, they are confident in the care they will receive.”

The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution and connection, just to name a few.

“This recognition is a true representation of our strong culture of family and trust,” said Hiral Patel, Lakeview Regional Medical Center’s CEO. “It honors our team’s commitment and dedication to providing the highest quality of care for each and every patient. And that commitment shows across all our departments and facilities.”

Lakeview Regional won a Top Workplace designation last year as a campus of Tulane Medical Center. Additionally, Tulane Health System was named one of the area’s “Best Places to Work” by New Orleans CityBusiness in 2018.

“Top Workplaces is more than just recognition,” said Doug Claffey, CEO of Energage. “Our research shows organizations that earn the award attract better talent, experience lower turnover and are better equipped to deliver bottom-line results. Their leaders prioritize and carefully craft a healthy workplace culture that supports employee engagement.

“Becoming a Top Workplace isn’t something organizations can buy – it’s an achievement organizations have worked for and a distinction that gives them a competitive advantage. It’s a big deal.”
