Nursing Professionals magazine has selected Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak as one of its 2009 "Top 100 Hospitals to Work For." Beaumont was one of five Michigan hospitals to make the listing.

"It's an honor to be recognized nationally as an outstanding place for nurses to work," says Val Gokenbach, R.N., vice president and chief nursing officer at Beaumont, Royal Oak.
"Our ability to provide excellent care for patients depends on the expertise of our nurses. We're especially proud that Beaumont, Royal Oak was the first hospital in Michigan to attain Magnet status, the highest designation for nursing excellence."

In early 2008, Nursing Professionals sent a survey to 25,000 randomly selected hospital nurses throughout the country measuring their job satisfaction. Questions focused on the following topics: training and development; family-friendly employer; equality and diversity; and flexible working arrangements.

"Greater awareness of the crucial role of nurses and the expanded opportunities they have today in patient care, research and training will be very helpful in encouraging more people to enter this profession, " says Donna Anderson, a senior vice president of marketing with
Nursing Professionals.

Nursing Professionals magazine serves as a tool for hospitals, the military and corporations to recruit nurse graduates.

Beaumont Hospitals employs 6,544 nurses, nursing assistants and nurse technicians. The three-hospital system is consistently recognized as having the best nurses by the National Research Corporation and as among the most preferred places to work.
From the flexibility of its nursing pool to a variety of full and part-time opportunities on its medical, surgical, cardiology and maternal child health units, Beaumont has a broad range of opportunities.
All three Beaumont Hospitals have Professional Nurse Councils that are made up of nurses who serve in an advisory and decision-making role to provide leadership in nursing practice, professional development, outcomes and research.
