Scripps Health has been named as one of the nation’s “20 Best Workplaces in Health Care” by Fortune magazine. The No. 20 ranking on the 2015 list comes from an anonymous survey of health care employees across the United States in the fall, administered by workplace culture experts at Great Place to Work.
Scripps is the only health care organization in San Diego County to make the top 20 list and one of only two in California.
The “20 Best Workplaces in Health Care” list is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune magazine, based entirely upon employee survey feedback from published Great Place to Work reviews.
Scripps employees rated their workplace highly in a number of categories. For example, they reported that Scripps provides a great work atmosphere that is consistently friendly and caring, with a family or team feeling. Also, Scripps employees said they take great pride in Scripps’ contributions and reputation and rated their compensation and benefits as great, praising services such as free flu shots and complimentary on-site chair massages for promoting their health and well-being.
Employees also rated Scripps as a great workplace in the areas of communication, professional challenges, training and career development.
“Our people represent our greatest asset, so Scripps is extremely proud to be recognized as one of America’s best workplaces in health care,” said Scripps President and CEO Chris Van Gorder. “We strive to be a destination where health care professionals can enjoy pursuing a meaningful and rewarding career.”
The honor is the latest in a string of recent workplace accolades for Scripps. Earlier this year, Scripps was named to Fortune magazine’s list of America’s “100 Best Companies to Work For,” and ranked No. 8 in Fortune’s “Top 10 Best Companies for Female Employees” and No. 8 in Fortune’s “Top 10 Best Paying Companies.” Also in 2015, Scripps was named one of the “Top 10 Non-Profit Companies for Executive Women” by the National Association for Female Executives.
