The culture: Celebrating the culture and diversity of both patients and employees: “Each person is an important piece of the puzzle and has a specific function or job to do. Instead of trying to make everyone fit a mold, we are each celebrated for our individuality and contribution to the working environment of the clinic. Often you will hear people in the hallways say that working here is like working with family. This is important because there is a closeness in the work place and an understanding that complications may arise, but in the end we are all aiming for the same goal: Great patient care and great employment,” survey feedback said.
Perks: Relocation benefit of $5,000 out of state and $3,000 in state eligibility for tuition reimbursement through the Colorado Health Service Corps Credit union membership. Health coverage includes short-disability, accident insurance, medical bridge insurance, cancer insurance, critical illness insurance and $400 yearly benefit for medical services at all MFHC sites.
Giving back: MFHC serves more than 15,000 low-income people annually, providing medical, dental and behavioral care services. “We are a leader in affordable integrated health-care access. What we deliver daily changes the trajectory of patients’ lives.”
The inside scoop: According to one employee’s survey feedback: “Our company does DISC personal insight profiles on all supervisors and managers. There has been a Ripple Effect Training for the entire organization through the Center for Nursing Excellence. The point of these ongoing trainings is to explore the different personalities and strengths of employees and show how to best work together and play to those strengths. This also can give better insight as to why there may be friction between co-workers, and they can work together to come to a resolution.”
