Employee Spotlight: “I decided to become a program director when I went back to school about 15 years ago to study public health policy. I knew that our U.S. health care system would be changing, and that there would be a lot of opportunities in the field. I became especially interested in Virginia Mason because of its reputation as one of the first hospitals to apply the Toyota Production System to health care. What makes Virginia Mason special is the people. Everyone is so focused on putting our patients and families first. Also, there is a culture of respect that fosters an environment where people speak up and share ideas. I have never before worked with such a dedicated and talented team.” - Sharon K., Program and Project Director, Perioperative and Procedural Services.
For the 3rd straight year Virginia Mason received the America’s 50 Best Hospitals Award from Healthgrades - placing it in top 1% of more than 4,500 hospitals in the U.S
