SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (Sep. 19, 2011) – CompHealth recently achieved a place on Modern Healthcare’s 2011 Best Places to Work in Healthcare list. The specific rankings will be announced in October at a gala event in Chicago, IL. Best Places to Work in Healthcare annually recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry on a national level.
Through a series of surveys, Best Companies Group evaluates participating companies on items such as company policies and practices, and benefits.

Responses are based on several workplace variables such as culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, and training and development. The two data sets are combined and analyzed to determine the rankings.
