January 27, 2009  |  

UC San Diego Medical Center was one of only ten hospitals in the entire state of California to be listed in the 2009 “Top 100 Hospitals to Work For” created by Nursing Professionals magazine.  The magazine surveyed nurses to measure job satisfaction for this highly competitive list.

Nursing Professionals' Top 100 Places to Work 2009“Our team of nurses at UC San Diego Medical Center is one of the most dedicated and professional group of nurses anywhere in the country, and it is a real honor that they consider our hospital one of the best in the nation.  They demonstrate our hospital’s commitment to clinical excellence and mission to take exceptional care of every patient, every single day,” said Richard Liekweg, Chief Executive Officer, UC San Diego Medical Center.

“UC San Diego Medical Center continues to be among the highest ranked facilities in the country and we strive to ensure that high level of excellence,” said Margarita Baggett, Chief Nursing Officer, UC San Diego Medical Center.  “Those in the healthcare business as well as outside recognize what an exceptional hospital we have here in San Diego.”

In 2008, Nursing Professionals magazine surveyed 25,000 randomly selected nurses at hospitals across the country to determine their level of job satisfaction.  They were asked a variety of questions ranging from personal training and development to family-friendly environment to flexible working arrangements.

“California is a competitive market in the field of nursing.  Nursing professionals choose to work at UC San Diego Medical Center because we’re in the business of caring for people. We deliver the highest level of service in providing for our patients’ health, well- being and quality of life,” said Kathleen Kuttler, RN, CCRN, CPAN.

Nursing Professionals is a new magazine that offers career advice primarily for nursing graduates entering the profession.  The first issue will debut in the spring of 2009 and will be published twice a year.
