"St. Luke's is leading a transformative change right now with population health and moving from fee-for service to value- based care," says Clark. According to Clark, the physician and employee ex perience also makes St. Luke's stand out. "St. Luke's is great because while it's a large health system, it's still a small community.

It's amazing to be able to work for a large organization and still feel like your voice can be heard." The fact that St. Luke's is locally owned and operated makes a big difference too, she says.
