For the record, there was no applause meter present, but there's little doubt that the biggest spontaneous-applause line during Harry Jacobson's State of the Medical Center report to VUMC workers came when he mentioned VU becoming the first university to be named one of FORTUNE's "Best Places to Work." The nearly hour-long Jacobson report to employees in packed Langford Auditorium covered peer patient safety and quality outcomes, as well as peer rankings, campus construction, endowment and much more. Following the presentation, Jacobson participated in conferring recognition on key employees and took questions from his audience. UPDATED Feb. 17: VU's report on Jacobson's presentation.
