Fortified Health Security named among Modern Healthcare’s 2024 Best Places to Work in Healthcare

Brentwood, TN – May 14, 2024 – Fortified Health Security (Fortified), a managed security services provider (MSSP) specializing in healthcare cybersecurity, has earned its fourth consecutive designation as one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2024 from Modern Healthcare.

The Best Places to Work awards program—pioneered by the industry’s leading source of healthcare business and policy news, research and information—celebrates companies that continuously improve their work environment. The award recognizes that Fortified has created a workplace that cultivates employee engagement, satisfaction and retention.

“We’re proud that our commitment to company culture has been recognized for a fourth time by Modern Healthcare,” said Dan L. Dodson, CEO of Fortified Health Security. “When our associates feel a sense of stability and satisfaction in the work environment, that translates to greater performance and higher satisfaction for our clients. It’s not just a matter of pride in our work; it’s an investment in our culture and services that healthcare organizations depend on from Fortified and our associates.”

Fortified has continued its pursuit of workplace excellence after earning the Best Places to Work award from Modern Healthcare in 2021, 2022 and 2023.

“In the last year, we have implemented more rigor and process around check-ins with new hires at 30, 60 and 90 days to ensure their onboarding is successful,” said Jessica Marshall, Executive Vice President of People and Culture at Fortified. “We focus on helping them establish connections, providing necessary tools for their roles and addressing any concerns they may have. Additionally, Fortified maintains ongoing quarterly conversations and actively promotes connectivity and community through our Engagement Committee programs.”

To select the award winners, Modern Healthcare partnered with Workforce Research Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. Fortified will celebrate with other winning companies at the 2024 Best Places to Work in Healthcare Awards Gala on Oct. 10 in Nashville, Tenn.

“With all the economic uncertainty, staffing challenges, and folks wanting more flexible work setups, every company has to get clever about how they attract and hold onto talent,” said Dan Peres, President of Modern Healthcare. “The winners of the 2024 Best Places to Work awards really get it. They show us how vital it is to understand what employees want and need right now.”
