I think my favorite job was working for Virginia Mason Medical Center. They follow the Toyota Corporation in their business model implementing six sigma, lean and S5. Everything is clean organized and minimal so waste is reduced, production improved and less errors are made. They are a magnet hospital and have won several awards. They really value their employees and ask for their ideas to be implemented for improved production. Its a great team environment and very positive. Doctors are peers with their staff and sit side by side with their MA's and RN's.
