[Baton Rouge, LA] – [June 22, 2023] – The Premier Health recruiting video “Who We Are. What We Do. Why We Do It.” has been singled out for a “Telly Award” honoring excellence in both creative content and production. Produced in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Economic Development’s FastStart program, the video took home a Bronze “Telly” in the “General-Recruitment” category. Telly Awards come in Gold, Silver, and Bronze.

The “Who We Are. What We Do. Why We Do It” video was created to attract top-tier talent by telling the Premier Health story. CEO Steve Sellars says, “The heart of Premier’s story has always been an opportunity not just for the company but for our team members too. We have a lot of colleagues who’ve been with us for years who started in entry levels roles that are now in leadership roles. As the company grew, so did opportunities to move up in the organization. It is an inspiring narrative.” Premier started with a single clinic in 1999 and is now approaching one hundred affiliated urgent care clinics in ten states and remains one of the fastest-growing urgent care operators in the country.

VP of Communications and Strategy Phil Rainier adds, “We also wanted the video to emphasize Premier’s commitment to having a ‘Making a Difference’ culture. From a recruitment perspective, it makes sense when you consider how many people looking for work want more from a job than a paycheck. They want what they do for a living to have meaning. From the clinic to compliance, everyone at Premier has a role in ensuring every patient treated at our affiliated clinics receives the highest level of care. You don’t get much more meaningful than that.”

The “Telly Awards” has honored excellence in video and television since 1979. Experts judge entries from some of the top entertainment, advertising, and emerging technology companies, including WarnerMedia, NBC News, and Vimeo. There were 12,000 plus entries for this year’s Telly Awards. Big-name winners include Walmart, the Kellogg Company, and United Healthcare. Companies of all sizes participated and were honored as well.

Based in Baton Rouge, LA, Premier Health specializes in urgent care joint ventures with some of the nation’s top hospitals and health systems. Premier opened Lake After Hours/Lake Urgent Care clinic in 1999 as part of its partnership with Our Lady of the Lake Hospital. Today Premier Health partners with leading health systems across the country, including Trinity Health and its participating member hospitals, HCA, Ardent Health, and the University of Kansas Health System.
