Location, MN (June 18, 2012) – Twin Cities Orthopedics (TCO), one of the largest orthopedic groups in the country , has been listed as one of the Star Tribune’s Top 100 Best Places to Work. TCO has 28 locations across the metro area and more than 700 employees. For this year’s honor, TCO employees were asked to participate in a survey about the company. More than 70% of the employees responded and those responses put TCO back on the coveted Star Tribune list for the second year in a row. TCO was ranked at #20 of the Top 100 Workplaces 2012.
