HackensackUMC is proud to announce it has been ranked among the “100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare,” according to Becker’s Hospital Review andBecker’s ASC Review, for the second year in a row. The list was developed through nominations and extensive research, and features organizations that demonstrate excellence in providing an employee-friendly environment.

“It is truly an honor to be recognized for providing a great place to work to our entire team,” said Robert C. Garrett, president and chief executive officer of HackensackUMC.  “Our staff is the backbone of this medical center, and for all of the dedicated hours and positive contributions they make, we are glad to reciprocate by offering them an enjoyable, positive and accommodating work environment.”

Becker’s Hospital Review, a leading magazine featuring business and legal news as related to hospitals and health systems, and Becker’s ASC Review, aleading source of cutting-edge business and legal information for hospital and health system leaders, owners and operators of ambulatory surgery centers and orthopaedic and spine practices, surveyed nominated organizations across the country and focused on those who offer robust benefits, wellness initiatives, professional development opportunities and an atmosphere of employee unity and satisfaction.

 According to the Becker’s Hospital Review website, it cites:

Hackensack UMC is a private, non-profit academic medical centerthat serves the Northern New Jersey and New York City metropolitan areas and employs nearly 8,000 people. According to the hospital, being a best place to work is apparent in its turnover rate: the hospital's voluntary turnover rate as of Dec. 31, 2011, was 5.56 percent. Since its last hospital-wide survey in 2008, the hospital has experienced increases in employee satisfaction, engagement and partnership, according to the most recent survey in 2011. Employees report feeling more valued by the organization, more accomplished in their daily roles and more satisfied with their jobs. The hospital was also awarded the New Jersey Business and Labor Association's Outstanding Employer Award in 2011. The hospital's Colleague-to-Colleague Fund was established to help employees in need; the money for financially needy employees is donated by other staff members, and all employees are eligible to receive assistance from the fund.

                “We are so proud to be ranked among the Best 100 Places to Work in Healthcare,” said Nancy R. Corcoran-Davidoff, executive vice president and chief human resources officer of HackensackUMC. “We strive to provide our staff with a productive and beneficial environment that encourages creativity, independence and innovation, and this ranking validates our efforts.”
