Gothenburg, NE—Gothenburg Health named top performer in health care by Huron Consulting Group


The Huron Consulting Group has named Gothenburg Health a top performer in health care.


Huron helps organizations develop strategies, align resources and utilize technologies and data to improve operations, optimize investments and drive growth. In a healthcare setting, this translates into the best care for patients.


The 2021 Excellence in Healthcare Awards celebrate and honor those committed to improving healthcare for patients, employees, and physicians. These awards are based on survey responses and identify organizations and individuals who achieve excellence throughout the year by improving patient experiences, healthcare employee engagement, and/or physician alignment and engagement. Huron named Gothenburg Health its 2021 Excellence in Healthcare award recipient for employee engagement.


“Our selections were based off clients who showcased excellent outcomes and innovations throughout this very challenging year,” said Tad Hunt, leadership coach and Huron account manager. “This award is a true testament of the hard work and dedication Gothenburg Health’s team demonstrates as a commitment to excellence in healthcare.”


“We’re proud of our incredible team,” said Mick Brant, Gothenburg Health CEO. “This award is one more example of what makes Gothenburg Health a destination for care.”


Huron specifically recognized Gothenburg Health for achieving employee engagement at the 85th percentile and highlighted the following areas as reasons for the high level of engagement:

  • Leadership Development
  • Community Wellness
  • Community Re-investment
  • Cultural Transformation as an organization in general


“Our team continues to work toward our vision of being the best hospital in the region for patients to receive care, employees to work and providers to practice,” Brant said.


The award was presented at the 19th annual What’s Right in Health Care® conference, which took place Aug. 10-11 in Denver, CO. The conference attracts administrative and clinical healthcare professionals from the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
