National Top Workplace 2022 Award Winner

Madison County Health Care System (MCHCS) has been recognized as a 2022 Top Workplace. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by research partner Energage, LLC, a leading provider of technology-based employee engagement tools. The anonymous survey measures several aspects of workplace culture, including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“During this very challenging time, Top Workplaces has proven to be a beacon of light for organizations, as well as a sign of resiliency and strong business performance,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “When you give your employees a voice, you come together to navigate challenges and shape your path forward. Top Workplaces draw on real-time insights into what works best for their organization, so they can make informed decisions that have a positive impact on their people and their business.”

New Nurse Residency Program at MCHCS

Developed as a way to recruit and retain new nurses into the profession out of college, MCHCS is providing a nurse residency program. This seen as a great way to help ease the transition.  Lynnette Shafer, BSN, RN, nurse preceptor at Madison County Hospital states, “The first year of the nursing profession can be so tough.  Many professional surveys have shown that, without a structured and individualized onboarding program, most nurses will leave that hospital and the profession within the first three months.”

MCHCS has added a new online partnership through the University of Iowa College of Nursing’s Iowa Online Nurse Residency Program beginning this spring.  This program allows students to participate in online learning modules, virtual discussions, and a residency project at the end that will directly affect patient outcomes.  Kim Hulbert, Chief Clinical Officer at MCHCS, says programs like this will help them be able to recruit new graduate nurses who want to stay in the area and in the profession.

Excellent care from all areas. Surgery staff and surgeon professional from the time I arrived until I was discharged. Doctor and staff explained everything and asked questions. The staff called the next day for follow up.Lab was very friendly and professional. They shared conversation like talking to family. The Clinic staff were professional and polite. My Doctor and nurse talked and asked about questions and concerns for my visit. The explanations were at a level I could understand and then they asked if I could think of any other concerns or problems. Thank you for being there when I need you.

I have the great pleasure to be a volunteer in the gift shop, with my sister. We enjoy what we do, and the staff are so very kind to us. I recently had some out-patient surgery. This hospital and the staff were so personable, and supportive, I didn't just feel like a number, waiting for my surgery. I highly recommend any services, Madison County Hospital offers, and it wouldn't hurt if you check out the cute little gift shop too!

I have been enrolled in the Madison County Health Care System's cardiac rehab program three times. I have always found it to be top notch. The staff, Lisa, Nancy and Aaron, are very attentive to my needs and extremely well informed. They've got the extra mile for me on a number of occasions. I wholeheartedly recommend this them.

I recently spent a month inpatient at Madison County Hospital. I had wonderful care during the time I was there. The nursing staff was attentive to my needs. The food from the cafeteria was excellent. Dr. Suddarth spent the necessary time to be sure I was receiving the proper treatment. I would highly recommend our hospital. We are very blessed to have such quality of medical care close by.

I’ve had my primary care physician here for 25 years, and I have always experienced careful attention and great medical care. Have had a couple of surgeries in the hospital, with great outcomes and never an infection — this facility maintains record-breaking low infection rates. I’m grateful to have access to healthcare that is both local and excellent.

If you are looking for a place with 5 star treatment - look no further! From the first visit with Dr. Formanek and his team, to the x-ray and MRI with the Radiology team, a thorough explanation about what needed to be fixed and how it would happen, an absolutely fantastic surgical experience which left me feeling like a VIP customer, to the excellent follow-up appointment, and finally physical therapy to help with the final healing process. All of this, and I never left home. Why go anywhere else - when you can have all of this in one location and some of the best customer service I have ever experienced!
