Hernando & Pasco Counties, FL – Community Hospital, the future Medical Center of Trinity, Oak Hill Hospital and Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point have announced that for a third consecutive year its parent company, HCA, has earned national recognition as one of the best workplaces in the United States for information technology professionals. The company ranked No. 32 on Computerworld’s 2011 “Best Places to Work in IT” list of 100 companies, moving up from its 2010 rank as No. 42.
“We are very pleased for HCA to be named to this distinguished list for three consecutive years,” said Noel Williams, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, HCA. “Although it is the IT organization that is named among Computerworld’s 100 Best Places to Work, this honor is very much a reflection of HCA’s company culture. We are fortunate to have a truly great place to work, not only for information technology professionals but for all our employees.”
HCA’s Information Technology & Services department (IT&S) employs more than 3,000 employees across the U.S. and includes four data centers and 14 division support centers responsible for delivering IT services to HCA, as well as more than 80 non-HCA facilities. The department’s array of services includes business analysis, systems development, systems integration, information security, customer support, training and education, and infrastructure support. IT&S is fully engaged in the design and implementation of hCare, the company’s new electronic health record, and several other large scale technology projects.
Since 1994, Computerworld’s annual “Best Places to Work in IT” feature has ranked the top 100 work environments for technology professionals, based on a comprehensive questionnaire regarding company offerings in categories such as benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention. In addition, this year Computerworld surveyed more than 27,000 IT workers for the list, and their responses factored heavily in determining the rankings.
In addition to HCA’s Healthy Work Environment initiative, Computerworld cited the company’s diverse development opportunities as offering significant value to IT professionals. More than 1,500 courses are offered across a variety of learning platforms to support their professional development through addressing individual employees’ skills, strengths and aspirations.
