Sutter Health Jumps Ahead as a Top Workplace for IT
Not-for-Profit Health System Ranked Among the Best in Computerworld List
SACRAMENTO, Calif. Aug. 30, 2007 – Sutter Health has been selected, for the fifth year in a row, as a top workplace for information technology professionals by IDG’s Computerworld magazine. Sutter Health ranked 18th across the entire IT industry and second among health systems nationally.
“Information technology is a fundamental component of Sutter Health’s commitment to providing patients the highest levels of clinical quality, convenient access to care and affordable services,” said Jon Manis, chief information officer for Sutter Health.
“In fact, we’re transforming our own information services organization to encourage even more innovation and provide ongoing career opportunities for our team of talented technology professionals,” added Manis.
As a leader in patient safety, Sutter Health also has embraced innovative technologies to provide consistently extraordinary care to patients.
“Our bar code technology, eICU system and electronic health record, are just a few examples of the broad range of initiatives Sutter Health is deploying to further improve clinical outcomes and enhance patient safety,” said Manis.
Sutter Health jumped ahead 24 slots on Computerworld’s Best Places to Work in IT list from last year. “I believe this is due in part to our growing investment in cutting-edge technologies that support our caregivers in providing unmatched, extraordinary care,” said Manis.
Computerworld’s survey ranks the top work environments for technology professionals using the categories of benefits, diversity, career development, training and retention.
This is the fifth year in a row that Sutter Health has placed in the top 100 list. Other companies that Computerworld ranked among the Best Places to Work in 2007 include General Mills, Hilton Hotels Corporation and Verizon Wireless.
