Moncrief Cancer Institute named among Best Places to Work

FORT WORTH – January 8 – Fort Worth Business has named Moncrief Cancer Institute as a “Best Places to Work” finalist among nonprofit organizations in the area.  

“Organizations that can inspire and motivate their employees will reap rewards not just for their company and their workers, but for the community as a whole,” said Richard Conner, chairman of DRC Media, owner of Fort Worth Business. “We are proud to honor these select organizations as Best Places to Work for 2015.”

Fort Worth Business editor Bob Francis said the award was based on unique benefits to employees and the community as well as the quality of the workplace environment.  

In 2012, Moncrief opened a new $22 million facility in the Fort Worth Hospital District. The institute now has 95 staff members including physicians, oncology certified nurses, genetic counselors, exercise therapists, registered dietitians, clinical psychologists, social workers and outreach advocates. Many employees are bilingual.

“Serving the community of cancer patients and survivors can be an emotional and difficult task,” said Moncrief Director Keith Argenbright, MD. “We’re proud that Moncrief employees reach deep to serve patients and volunteer for community events with our partners such as the American Cancer Society and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.”

Moncrief Cancer Institute provides the foremost cancer prevention, research and survivor services to reduce the threat and impact of cancer. Through Moncrief’s affiliation with UT Southwestern’s Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center, the region’s only National Cancer Institute designated cancer center, world-class treatment and clinical trials are now closer to home for residents in Tarrant and surrounding counties.
