We also offer a comprehensive benefits package, a matching 401(k) plan, nursing clinical ladder, referral bonuses, outstanding educational assistance and resources, plus a generous paid time-off plan.

For the tenth consecutive year in 2016, Frankfort Regional was chosen as one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky. Frankfort Regional Medical Center is a Magnet designated facility committed to recruiting professional, energetic and goal oriented individuals. Our hospital strives to make "excellence" in healthcare our top priority.

FRMC is one of only four Level III Trauma Centers in Kentucky, and has received Chest Pain Center Accreditation with PCI by the Society of Chest Pain Centers - setting the standard for excellence in emergency heart care. Frankfort Regional Medical Center attained Magnet® recognition again in May 2016. Receiving Magnet recognition for the second time is a great achievement for Frankfort Regional Medical Center, as it continues to proudly belong to the global community of Magnet-recognized organizations. Just 430 U.S. health care organizations out of over 6,300 U.S. hospitals have achieved Magnet recognition.

Magnet recognition is the gold standard for nursing excellence and includes model elements for delivering superior patient care such as the quality of nursing leadership and coordination and collaboration across specialties, as well as processes for measuring and improving the quality and delivery of care. Magnet recognition provides specific benefits to health care organizations and their communities, such as:
• Higher patient satisfaction with nurse communication, availability of help and receipt of discharge information.
• Lower risk of 30-day mortality and lower failure to rescue rates.
• Higher job satisfaction among nurses.
• Lower nurse reports of intentions to leave their positions.
