An important community asset recently received statewide recognition.
Decatur County Memorial Hospital was named one of Central Indiana's Top Workplaces by the Indianapolis Star following participation in a survey administered by Workplace Dynamics of Exton, Pa.
In total, 675 Central Indiana employers were invited to participate, and the employees of those participating responded to 23 statements in areas such as appreciation, work/life balance, leadership, management, growth opportunities, company values and others.
This was the second year in which DCMH was named; however, this represented its first appearance in the top 5.
This year, Decatur County Memorial held the number three position in the large company category behind Barnes & Thornburg and Federal Express.
The hospital was also presented a "special award" in the category of Work/Life Flexibility. This award was based on standout scores for specific survey statements related to that category.
