“Employees in health care frequently take on high-stakes responsibilities that substantially impact people’s lives. By doing everything they can to support team members and ensure they create a great place to work for all, the Best Workplaces in Health Care are poised to outperform their peers,” says Kim Peters, executive vice president of Great Place to Work.

At Best Health Care Workplaces, 93 percent of employees describe their organizations as friendly and welcoming.

Hospitals on the list averaged higher “Overall Hospital Rating” and “Recommended Hospital” HCAHPS scores than the national average.

Employees at the “best workplaces” say they are offered professional development, fair pay and an emotionally healthy work environment.

Published with partner, Fortune, the Best Workplaces in Health Care rankings are based on feedback from more than 87,770 employees at Great Place to Work-certified organizations in health care, including the biotechnology and pharmaceutical sector. Employees completed an anonymous Trust Index survey, answering questions about how frequently they experience the building blocks of a great workplace. Employees rated leadership strength and integrity, pride in their work and organization, and the quality of relationships with co-workers, among other factors.
