Information Technology Department in Top 25

For the second consecutive year, Healthcare IT News has named Washington Regional to its annual list of the 25 best IT departments nationwide. Washington Regional, with 32 IT staff members, was number 6 on the nationwide list of Best Medium Hospital IT Departments.

The publication’s list, which includes many nationally regarded institutions, spotlights hospital information technology departments that excel on measures of employee satisfaction. To qualify, at least 50 percent of the facility’s IT employees needed to have taken a survey from Healthcare IT News. Departments receiving the highest ranking were those that scored the highest in categories important to employees, such as workplace culture, organizational leadership and professional development. Washington Regional was noted in particular for its “Way-to-Go” book featuring compliments the department receives from various areas throughout the hospital.

“The efficiency and technical expertise of our IT team has a direct impact on clinical quality and on our patients’ experience,” says Bill Bradley, Washington Regional president and CEO. “We are proud of this well-deserved recognition of the work they do every day.”
