Employees want to work for a company or organization that cares for their well-being, has perks and good benefits and where they feel engaged.

We found 50 companies in Greater Louisville that go to great lengths to make sure their employees achieve work-life balance and feel like their company is worthy to be a part of Louisville Business First’s Best Places to Work in Greater Louisville awards.

Below you’ll find our Best Places to Work in Greater Louisville honorees. We made the request earlier this year for nominations for the Best Places program, which highlights companies whose operations are changing the business landscape for the better.

Our Best Places to Work program is administered by Omaha, Nebraska-based Quantum Workplace, which surveys employees about workplace policies, office conditions, management styles and more.

Companies and nonprofits with an office in the Louisville area with at least 10 full-time or part-time, permanent employees (not including owners or partners) were able to participate. Also, there is a minimum level of employee participation to be considered a Best Places to Work honoree. These honorees were selected because of their employees’ feedback and not through outside judges like we use for some of our other programs.

The companies fall into three categories: Those with 10-24 employees; those with 25-150 employees; and those with 151 or more employees. They represent all industries.

For 2022, 50 companies scored high enough to be included in our group of Best Places to Work honorees. More about these honorees and the numerical rankings for each category below will be revealed in a special section in the Aug. 5, 2022, edition of Business First and online.

Congratulations to this year’s Best Places to Work honorees.

Nazareth Home Receives 2022 Customer Experience Award from Pinnacle Quality Insight

Nazareth Home Receives 2022 Customer Experience Award from Pinnacle Quality Insight

Nazareth Home has received Pinnacle Quality Insight’s 2022 Customer Experience AwardTM, qualifying in the category of skilled nursing facility. The award signifies Nazareth Home’s continued dedication to providing best-in-class healthcare services for seniors. 

The customer satisfaction report by Pinnacle Quality Insight is designed to measure residents’ satisfaction with regard to their quality of care and quality of life. 

The Highlands and Clifton Campuses both received awards for skilled care. The Highlands Campus was also awarded for its personal care program. To qualify for the Pinnacle Customer Experience Award™, Nazareth Home had to score in the top 15 percent of the nation across a 12-month average. Out of 2,700 care providers and 150,000 customer interviews, only those facilities that scored in the 85th percentile or higher received an award.

President/CEO of Nazareth Home, Mary Haynes, described receiving this recognition as a great honor, stating that the organization’s priority is keeping the residents safe, healthy and engaged.

“We are thrilled to be awarded for providing an environment that engages employees to deliver award-winning care where elders can thrive, and families can feel confident their loved one is receiving the best care,” said Haynes. “We are making our mark on the national scale by providing exceptional person-centered care to the elders we serve at both our locations.”  

Throughout its long history of serving the community, Nazareth Home has placed a strong emphasis on ensuring that the individual needs of every resident are met. A sampling of Nazareth Home’s residents and their families participated in monthly telephone interviews that included open-ended questions, as well as opportunities to rate Nazareth Home in specific categories. Every month, Nazareth Home gathers its real-time survey results to gain a better understanding of the residents’ needs and make enhancements when necessary.

Nazareth Home, Pallitus Health Partners announce new program for complex disease management

Nazareth Home, Pallitus Health Partners announce new program for complex disease management

Collaborative program adds an extra layer of individualized care for long-term care residents facing complex medical issues

Nazareth Home, in collaboration with Pallitus Health Partners, a part of Hosparus Health, has announced the implementation of a new complex disease management program known as HELD — Helping Embrace Life Decisions.

The HELD program supports Nazareth Home residents who have extreme or complex medical situations that require the attention and expertise of multiple health care providers. HELD brings together experts in the fields of geriatrics and complex disease management to develop an individualized plan that focuses on the unique healthcare needs of the Nazareth Home resident. It emphasizes closer monitoring of patients and engaging earlier in symptom control so individuals can discuss their goals and options, as well as identify a meaningful healthcare plan that can improve their quality of life for a longer period of time.

“The HELD program aligns with Nazareth’s Home commitment to be forward-thinking in how we deliver compassionate care, especially to those who are facing more complex situations with their health,” said Mary Haynes, president/CEO of Nazareth Home. “This is really the next generation of care to empower the elder with complex diseases to have more control over their goals, their care options, and ultimately the plan on how they want to live out their best life.”

The program includes a team of consistent providers, including staff members from both organizations, along with Dr. Tyler McQueen, a geriatric medicine specialist with Pallitus Health Partners. McQueen meets with Nazareth Home residents on a weekly basis concerning quality of life decisions during their critical time of need.

McQueen is part of Hosparus Health and the Central Louisville clinical team. He earned his medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine and completed his residency in internal medicine at Wake Forest School of Medicine in North Carolina. He then completed fellowships in geriatric medicine and hospice and palliative medicine at Wake Forest. He is board-certified in internal medicine, geriatric medicine, and hospice and palliative medicine, and is a member of the American College of Physicians.

“This partnership, one of the first of its kind in our area, is an innovative, person-centered approach to caring for those with serious illness. As a provider of palliative care, we offer an extra layer of support that is consistently shown to improve quality of life for those with the most complex or advanced health conditions. We remain committed to meeting patients where they are and finding new ways to help them make the most of each day. Our collaboration with Nazareth Home is a natural extension of our mission,” said Bethany Snider, chief medical officer of Pallitus Health Partners.

Pallitus Health Partners offers comprehensive palliative care for serious illness in Kentucky and Indiana. Specialized services include chronic symptom and medication management, disease education and care coordination.
