Becker’s Healthcare Names Atlantic Health System as a “Great Place to Work”
Friday, May 16, 2014 • 2:12pm
Atlantic Health System, one of the largest non-profit health care providers in New Jersey, was named as one of the "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare," by Becker's Healthcare, publisher of some of the best-known publications in the field, including Becker’s Hospital Review.
The Becker’s 2014 list includes hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgery centers, physician groups, vendors and other healthcare organizations that provide excellent work environments and outstanding benefits to their employees. Becker's Healthcare has been compiling a list of Great Places to Work in Healthcare annually since 2011, but this is the first year non-provider organizations were included on the list.
In its profile on Atlantic Health System, Becker’s highlighted the hospital system’s six consecutive years of recognition in FORTUNE as one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For,” as well as its status as a Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. Becker’s also noted many of the programs offered to employees at Atlantic Health System, including on-site child care, infertility coverage and college planning, as well as numerous career development and mentorship programs.
The recognition by Becker’s echoes not only the recognition in FORTUNE, but also that of AARP, which has named Atlantic Health System one of the “Best Employers for Workers Over 50,” six consecutive times. The hospital system was also recently highly-rated by the next generation of workers in the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS)’s 2014 Millennial Career Survey Results, which ranked the Top 200 places that high school and college students, ages 15-27, want to work. Atlantic Health System ranked 38 on that list, which utilized the FORTUNE ranking in its methodology.
Atlantic Health System and its hospitals, Morristown, Overlook, Newton and Chilton medical centers and Goryeb Children’s Hospital, have been highly recognized for clinical quality, by organizations such as the Joint Commission and American Heart Association, and publications such as U.S. News and World Report.
“Being recognized time after time by numerous organizations as a great place to work while also holding the status as a leader in health care is no coincidence,” said Andrew Kovach, vice president of Human Resources, and Chief Administrative Officer, Atlantic Health System. “We’re proud to be an example of how treating people well on every level can translate into success.”
To develop the list, the Becker's Healthcare editorial team conducted research, considered nominations and evaluated organizations based on their benefits, workplace culture, professional development opportunities and previous recognition for workplace excellence. The resulting list is a compilation of 150 healthcare organizations that go above and beyond for their employees and are great places to work.
