TEXARKANA, Texas -- Forbes magazine has ranked CHRISTUS Health among the best employers in Texas in its annual Best Employers By State list.

CHRISTUS took the top spot in the Northeast Texas region.

"Whether a seasoned nurse or a new grad, you will find a wealth of opportunity and an outstanding culture at CHRISTUS St. Michael Health System," said Chris Glenney, chief executive officer, CHRISTUS Health Northeast Texas. "We are grateful to be recognized as one of the best health care employers in the state of Texas and the best in this region."

With market research company Statista, Forbes anonymously surveyed 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees. Survey respondents rated employers in several areas, including workplace safety, compensation and advancement opportunities. Survey respondents were also asked how likely they would recommend their employer to potential employees.

"We are a unique place to work because of our mission, to extend the healing ministry of Jesus Christ, and because of our core values of Compassion, Integrity, Excellence, Stewardship and Dignity," said Kimberly King Webb, senior vice president and chief human resources officer at CHRISTUS Health. "These are qualities that are not just worthwhile, they represent our highest priorities in how we treat each other and every interaction we have with those we are privileged to serve."

CHRISTUS Health, including CHRISTUS Trinity Mother Frances, CHRISTUS Good Shepherd, and CHRISTUS St. Michael, is ranked in the top 30 out of the 101 Texas businesses and organizations on the Forbes list. The rankings are based on employee surveys.

"Responses from CHRISTUS associates contributed to this ranking, and that means a great deal, as we often tell our team, 'Support the CHRISTUS Health mission of excellence, and we will support yours,'" Glenney said.
