Schneck honored by nursing career website

A Seymour hospital has been honored by an influential nursing career and education website.

Schneck Medical Center was ranked as the number one Most Nurse-Friendly Hospital in the nation by Stephanie L. Furlow, the hospital’s director of marketing and public relations, explains that the list names hospitals in the United States that have “demonstrated a high valuation of their nursing staff, provide employees with a host of benefits, support teams, and provide outstanding work environments.”

Schneck was among a group of hospitals honored including the Cleveland Clinic, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, and Johns Hopkins Hospital, said Furlow.

This is the third year in a row that Schneck has received the accolade, and is the only Indiana hospital named to the list, added Furlow. She noted that the report indicated that the satisfaction levels for nurses at Schneck had gone beyond the National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators standard for three consecutive years.
