Sheltering Arms Named one of the Top Places to Work in Healthcare

(Richmond, Va.) – Sheltering Arms, Central Virginia’s premier physical therapy healthcare provider, announced today that it has been named once again to the Modern Healthcare list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Sheltering Arms is one of only two Virginia organizations named to the list, and is the only physical rehabilitation provider from the Commonwealth. Sheltering Arms received the same honor in 2008.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled at receiving this honor,” said Sheltering Arms CEO Jim Sok. “Sheltering Arms provides an exemplary environment in which our employees do remarkable things, and it’s wonderful to be recognized for providing that environment. We are proud of all our employees and their work in helping patients find the power to overcome setbacks that result from injuries and illness.”

Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a Pennsylvania-based firm that administers “best places to work” programs nationwide. Modern Healthcare conducted this program to recognize outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level. From economic development to employee retention, being named one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare benefits individuals, organizations and the healthcare industry.

The program collected information from both the employer and employees and was open to all companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees. Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked in-depth questions that resulted in an analysis of 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.

A full alphabetical list of organizations honored in Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work is available at Modern Healthcare will reveal the specific ranking of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare on October 19, 2010 at and in a special supplement to Modern Healthcare magazine on October 25, 2010.
