Lourdes Hospital FactsMeet the organization: Lourdes Hospital is rooted in its spiritual faith, meaning employees see their work as a "personal ministry," according to the hospital. Employees find many ways to incorporate the hospital's mission both within their work and outside of work. In March, a Lourdes employee team was ranked third in the world by the American Cancer Society for raising more than $256,000 for Relay for Life. The hospital has implemented a five-year Multicultural Competence and Inclusion strategic plan to demonstrate equitable care and service to patients and equally represent various demographics in the employee base.

Added benefits: Lourdes Hospital, under parent Catholic Health Partners in Cincinnati, Ohio, implemented the Fair and Just Wage in 2003, providing wages annually calculated to be above the poverty level for a family of four, as determined by HHS and CMS. While the current minimum wage for the state of Kentucky is $7.25, the minimum wage for new Lourdes employees is $9.52. The hospital also offers 100-percent tuition reimbursement for employees seeking a higher degree in nursing.
