150 great places to work in healthcare | 2015
By Becker's Staff
Becker's Healthcare is pleased to release the 2015 edition of "150 great places to work in healthcare."
The 2015 list includes both healthcare providers — medical groups, ambulatory surgery centers, home health providers and hospitals and health systems — along with other types of healthcare-specific companies, such as consulting firms, technology providers, professional organizations and more.
The list was developed through a combination of nominations and editorial research. The organizations on this list were chosen for their benefits offerings, wellness programs, commitment to diversity and inclusion, professional development opportunities and environments that promote employee satisfaction and work-life balance. Many of these organizations have been recognized by national, state or local organizations for their workplace culture or employee satisfaction scores.
Editor's note: This list is not intended to be a ranking, and organizations are displayed in alphabetical order. This list is not an endorsement of included healthcare providers, and organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list.
Meet the organization: St. Vincent's is a faith-based nonprofit system with three hospitals, one of which opened in October 2013 and added 375 full-time positions to Clay County. In total, the system has more than 5,000 employees. St. Vincent's received the American Heart Association's Gold Fit-Friendly Worksite award in early 2014 and has also received the First Coast Worksite Wellness-Healthiest Companies Platinum Award.
Added benefits: St. Vincent's offers a Spirituality Health Center, where employees can get personal guidance for their spiritual journey as well as meditation instruction. Employees can also take advantage of offerings like yoga, YMCA partnerships and wellness fairs. Every facility has a Circle of Champions, a group of employees tasked with designing ways to improve the workplace and acting as liaisons between senior leaders and associates. That program has led to numerous initiatives, including the creation of an intranet, where workers can request new equipment and submit suggestions for workplace improvement.
