GRAFTON — Unity Medical Center has been selected by Modern Healthcare on its list of 2022 Best Places to Work in Healthcare.

"After the many stressors placed on the healthcare workforce during the pandemic and the resulting Great Resignation, we know those employees are battling burnout, increased work volumes and their own physical and mental health challenges," Fawn Lopez, publisher of Modern Healthcare, said. "The organizations that have focused significant resources and energy to support their staff throughout these especially challenging times deserve the loyalty of their teams and the recognition of the entire industry. At Modern Healthcare, we are honored to celebrate the Best Places to Work for demonstrating their commitment to their employees, and the communities they serve, with exemplary people care measures."

Via a Facebook post, the company announced the closure was “due to lack of staffing,” although the car washes at 1125 42nd St. South and 4701 S. Washington St. will remain open.

The award program recognizes “outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide,” according to a news release. Unity Medical Center will find out where it ranks on the list at the 2022 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards gala on Sept. 29 at the Hilton Nashville Downtown.

“I am so proud of everyone for this prestigious accomplishment,” Unity Medical Center CEO Alan O’Neil said. “Over the past few years, they have worked so hard under extreme pressure and knowing this award is based on employee feedback confirms they truly enjoy the work they do, the people they work with and the patients they care for.”
