UAMS Named ‘Best Place to Work’ in Best of Arkansas Poll

By Spencer Watson

UAMS was also among the finalists in the “Best Hospital” and the “Best Diet/Weight Loss Center” categories.

“We certainly try very hard to be a good employer for a very wide variety of employees,” said UAMS Chancellor Cam Patterson, M.D., MBA. “Doing so puts us in a unique position in terms of the many careers available at UAMS and being an attractive place to pursue those careers, and I think it is that diversity that makes our institutional culture so vibrant.”

Results of the annual poll, conducted “for the umpteenth year in a row,” according to the publication, are based on votes cast by readers. The poll covers all aspects of business and industry in Arkansas, including places to shop, eat, work and play, as well as favorite artists, musicians, writers, comedians and celebrities.

This year, the poll included special “Pandemic Life” categories created by the COVID-19 pandemic, including favorite to-go and delivery services from restaurants, pick-up grocers and most innovative businesses.
