May 20, 2013

Milwaukee, WI – Aurora Health Care has been named to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Top Workplaces list for the third consecutive year.

The award recognizes organizations for investing time, energy and resources in engaging and developing their employees. This investment ultimately enables those organizations to fulfill their mission.

“We are proud to be recognized as a Top Workplace,” said John Zorbini, chief human resources officer at Aurora Health Care. “Aurora strives to be an employer of choice by providing employees with flexibility, competitive pay and benefits, and professional and career development opportunities. With these tools and benefits, we created an environment where caregivers support one another, have a passion to succeed and provide patients with the best care possible.”

The Journal Sentinel worked with WorkplaceDynamics, a suburban Philadelphia company that surveys companies and analyzes the data, to determine the area's top workplaces. The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback.

Public Relations Guidelines and Procedures

The public relations team at Aurora Health Care operates under the following guidelines and procedures:

To arrange interviews, press should call public relations. A member of our team can help access a specialist. If the person a reporter requests is not available, we may be able to provide an alternative source.

Protecting the privacy of patients and families is our responsibility; it's also the law. Please do not come to our sites unannounced. Rather, contact public relations and we will find experts for interviews and connect you. We'll also make an effort to contact patients upon your request to ascertain their interest in being interviewed.

Ensuring patient confidentiality and privacy, and exhibiting sensitivity to all of the patients, families and employees at Aurora Health Care is of vital concern. Therefore, reporters, film crews and photographers must always be accompanied by a public relations team member while on any of the campuses.

To be photographed or videotaped at Aurora Health Care, patients or their legal guardians must sign a consent form. A member of our public relations team can arrange this.

Because of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) patients over 18 or their legal guardian must complete a release form before anyone who works at Aurora Health Care can release confidential information about a patient. A member of our public relations team can arrange consent

Reporters inquiring about a patient’s condition should contact a member of our public relations team, with the individual's full name.
