Saratoga Hospital Named a Top 125 Organization for Training

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY — Training magazine has named Saratoga Hospital among the world’s Top 125 organizations for employee development. Saratoga Hospital is the only Capital Region organization to rank among the 2013 Training Top 125, a designation that recognizes organizations with exceptional learning and development programs.

Included in the Top 125 are organizations such as Verizon, the U.S. Navy, MasterCard Worldwide and the following healthcare institutions: Baptist Health Care Corporation of Florida, Baylor Health Care System of Texas, Miami Children’s Hospital of Florida, New York-Presbyterian Hospital and University of New Mexico Hospitals.

“This award underscores our commitment to staff development and retention, both of which have a dramatic, positive impact on patient care,” said Angelo G. Calbone, Saratoga Hospital President and CEO.

“We make significant investments to attract, develop and keep top-notch staff, and it shows—in the high satisfaction levels of staff and patients and in the quality of care that we provide,” he added.

Top 125 organizations are selected, in part, based on their total training budget and its percentage of payroll, number of training hours per employee, and training goals, evaluation and measurement. Applicants also must submit detailed descriptions of specific training programs. Saratoga Hospital highlighted its comprehensive computer training, developed with assistance from Adirondack Community College; a state-of-the-art simulation laboratory, located in the hospital’s new education building on Myrtle Street; and the hospital’s Lean Initiative, which included extensive top-level training by GE.
