MIAMI, FL - Great Place to Work and Fortune have honored Baptist Health South Florida as one of the 2020 Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For®. This is the 20th time Baptist Health has been recognized on the list, and this year Baptist Health earned the #54 spot. Once again, Baptist Health ranked highest among the 100 Best Companies in terms of its percentage of minorities. To determine the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For® list, Great Place to Work® analyzed responses from more than 650,000 employees at Great Place to Work-Certified organizations across the country. Great Place to Work, a global people analytics and consulting firm, evaluated more than 60 elements of team members' experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees' feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

Memorial Team Performs Epilepsy Surgery Using Robot Technology
The epilepsy team with Memorial Neuroscience Institute, located in Hollywood, successfully completed its first use of a minimally invasive robotic device that helps pinpoint the origin of epileptic seizures on a patient. The device, now in full use at Memorial Regional Hospital, is called a  Robotized Surgical Assistant, or ROSA. With assistance from the robot, neurosurgeons only need to make small, precise incisions in the scalp and skull to place electrodes deep in the brain and investigate where seizures are triggered, according to Christopher DeMassi, MD, FACS, Chief of the Memorial Neuroscience Institute and Chief of Neurosurgery.
