DALLAS, Oct. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- At a time of unprecedented baseball glory in North Texas, Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Southlake (THHMHS) is enjoying its own run of success, having just been named to three major "Best" workplace lists.  

For the third straight year, Modern Healthcare magazine has named THHMHS one of the country's 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare.  For 2010, THHMHS once again achieved a top 20 ranking on the list, which is compiled from an evaluation of 328 healthcare companies in partnership with Best Companies Group, a Pennsylvania-based firm that administers "best places to work" programs nationwide.  More information can be found at http://ModernHealthcare.com/bestplaces.
