Our employees have helped make Saint Joseph Jessamine a trusted name in the community and this award is a reflection of their hard work and dedication.”

Studies show a strong correlation between profitability and creating a good place to work.

The winner rankings will be announced at an awards dinner on Thursday, April 23, at Heritage Hall in the Lexington Convention Center.
