Memorial Health System's physician network,
including Family Medical Center of Lincoln, has been named an
Employer of Choice by Greensboro, N.C.-based Employer of Choice.
Memorial Health System's HealthCare Network Associates is one of
fewer than 25 employers nationwide to earn the prestigious award.
The designation follows a rigorous evaluation process and recognizes
the network for "demonstrating dedication to a higher level of
employee relationships, a level that goes far above and beyond
normal practices," said Joyce Gioia, president and chief executive
officer of Employer of Choice, the firm that certifies employers as
deserving of the designation.
In addition to Family Medical Center of Lincoln, other clinics
and physician offices in the network are located in Springfield,
Chatham, Petersburg and Jacksonville.
"The Employer of Choice designation recognizes that our employees
are our most valuable asset," said Travis Dowell, vice president of
the network. "Recognition as an Employer of Choice would simply not
be possible without the knowledge, skills, experience and dedication
our employees, physicians, nurse practitioners and physician
assistant bring to our clinics and our patients.
"Our 10 clinics and physician offices proudly work toward
fulfilling Memorial Health System's mission of helping to maintain,
restore and improve the health of the people and communities we
serve. Those who come to us for care can be assured that as an
Employer of Choice, we combine knowledge, skills and experience with
the dedication and compassion required to provide the
patient-centered care they expect and deserve."

Gioia added that Employers of Choice are better able to attract
great employees, provide excellent career opportunities and retain
dedicated talent than other organizations. "Employers of Choice have
the knowledge, experience, resiliency and power to respond quickly
to their customers' needs, delivering what customers want more
efficiently and effectively than competitors plagued by employee
turnover," Gioia said. "This strength allows them to maintain high
levels of customer service and loyalty."
HCNA is a nonprofit,
primary care network of nearly 40 physicians, 11 nurse practitioners
