Becker's Hospital Review has released its 2017 edition of the "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare | 2017.” Adena Health System is again among the organizations the healthcare-centric publication says are, “committed to fulfilling missions, creating outstanding cultures and offering competitive benefits to their employees.” Adena was selected previously to Becker’s 2016 list of 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.
“At Adena, we work to not only provide the best quality care we can for our patients, but to also make sure our caregivers have a satisfying work life as well,” said Adena’s Interim President and CEO Dr. John Fortney. “Receiving recognition at a national level for our efforts to provide caregivers with a positive work experience, competitive pay and benefits, and programs that promote personal and career growth is a welcome compliment. However, caring for the needs of our Adena family, by offering quality healthcare, retirement and life- and career-enhancing benefits is just the right thing to do. We know that healthy and satisfied caregivers are the key to making sure our patients receive the best care and have the best experience possible when they come to any Adena facility.”
The Becker's Hospital Review accepted nominations for this list and developed an editorial review process to include organizations that have gone above and beyond to make their hospitals, health systems and companies great places to work. The "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare" list features both healthcare provider organizations and other healthcare-specific companies.
According to Becker’s, the organizations included in its Top 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare | 2017 “encourage professional development among their employees and promote tomorrow's leaders.” Many of the organizations, like Adena, have employee recognition programs, mentorships and offer competitive benefits. The organizations also coordinate employee and family outings, volunteering opportunities, and provide community support.
