White Plains Hospital announced today that it is 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. It is one of only 26 large companies (1,000+ employees) based in New York included on the list. White Plains Hospital was eligible for this honor following its certification as a “Great Place to Work” in 2022, a recognition it has received multiple times for meeting or exceeding national benchmarks for employee satisfaction.
“Our employees are our greatest asset, and it is because of their award-winning efforts that we have created such a strong culture of dedication, teamwork and compassion,” said Susan Fox, President and CEO of White Plains Hospital. “This achievement, combined with our passion for delivering the highest quality care, speaks to the culture of excellence that we have created throughout our organization.”
To determine the Fortune Best Workplaces in New York™ List, Great Place To Work collected more than 170,000 survey responses from employees at Great Place To Work-certified companies. Hospital employees from all departments and job functions were asked to complete a survey that includes questions on leadership effectiveness, respect, fairness and employee pride in the community. White Plains Hospital scored significantly above the benchmark required to be certified as a Best Workplace.
“Fortune congratulates the Best Workplaces in New York,” says Fortune Editor-in-Chief Alyson Shontell. “In a challenging economy, these companies have demonstrated the increasing value of ensuring that employees feel valued.” Added Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place To Work, “These great companies are laser-focused on their most valuable asset: their people. The result? Higher productivity and performance, and faster rates of innovation.”
