White Plains, N.Y. (September 7, 2023) – White Plains Hospital announced today it is the only Hospital in New York named to Fortune media and Great Place To Work’s list of Best Workplaces in Health Care, and has also been recertified as a Great Place to Work® for the third time.
The Best Workplaces in Health Care award is based on an analysis of Great Place to Work (GPTW) survey responses from more than 208,000 employees in the healthcare industry, derived from 60 employee experience questions. In that survey, 87% percent of White Plains Hospital team members said the Hospital is a great place to work, ranking it #32 on the top 40 large companies (1,000+ employees) list of Best Workplaces in Health Care in the country.
Reviewed and produced by GPTW, Hospital employees from all departments and job functions were asked to complete a confidential survey that includes questions on leadership effectiveness, respect, fairness and employee pride in the community. White Plains Hospital scored 30% higher than a typical U.S.-based company in employee experience.
"Fortune congratulates the Best Workplaces in Health Care," says Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell. "Creating a vibrant workplace culture that draws the best talent in healthcare is vital for the success of the leaders in this highly competitive industry. It is also what's needed to ignite innovation and deliver best-in-class performance."
In addition to the Great Place to Work and Fortune honors, White Plains Hospital recently earned the highest five-star quality rating from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the second time and was also recognized by U.S. News & World Report as a Best Regional Hospital for the fifth consecutive year. In June, it was the only Hospital in New York to be named to Fortune media and Great Place To Work’s list of Best Workplaces in New York.
