Headquarters: Arlington, Texas

Number of U.S. employees: 21,686

Company type: Non-Profit

Employees say:

“I appreciate that everyone at the table is encouraged to speak up and offer a perspective. I like that our leaders subscribe to a ‘best idea wins’ mentality rather than relying only on leaders for input and guidance.”

“The teamwork on my unit and a few others that I have experience with are unmatched. I have worked here for a year and still love coming to work because I feel supported and love my coworkers. You can’t find that everywhere. I’m also a student and I have felt welcomed with many encouraging my education through words of affirmation and learning opportunities in the clinical setting. I couldn’t imagine working anywhere else.”

2. Encompass Home Health And Hospice

Headquarters: Dallas, Texas

Number of U.S. employees: 8,453

Company type: Private

Employees say:

“What makes this a great place to work for me is feeling like management actually cares about me as a person. I have been made to feel like part of a team. Everyone does their share and helps each other when necessary.”

“I am very new here, just over 2 months. From day one there has been an abundance of help, from the people in the office that I work with daily to preceptors who have been sent in to help the new hires. I can honestly say no other company I have ever worked for has gone the extra mile like Encompass has. I look forward to a very long and rewarding career here.”

Headquarters: Portsmouth, Ohio

Number of U.S. employees: 2,586

Company type: Non-Profit

Employees say:

“I have always been encouraged to take steps to improve myself and to grow within the organization. I have been offered assistance to obtain a higher level of education and support in doing so.”

“SOMC is a great place to work, mainly because of the attitudes of everyone here. If you pass someone in the hallway, they will smile or say hi. Everyone is usually willing to help a customer find their way, or help in any way possible. I feel like most everyone who works here strives to provide excellent care. When you care about your patients and feel like you have provided them excellent service, it gives purpose to your work and really helps you have a great attitude about having to come to work here every day. I personally feel that way myself, and you can look around at other employees and its obvious many others here feel the same way that I do.”

4. Caring Nurses

Headquarters: Las Vegas, Nevada

Number of U.S. employees: 103

Company type: Private

Employees say:

“Caring goes beyond a name. I have seen management pay to assist patients with medications, to clean their homes, and buy food for them. We started a food pantry so any of our field staff is welcome to come take food to our patients.”

“I’ve worked for multiple home health agencies but Caring Nurses is my favorite. I love that we have the stock program and get statements every year on how well the company is doing. It makes you feel like you are on the winning team. I’ve seen the owners do a lot of pro-bono stuff for patients who don’t have money for meds or food and it’s heartwarming to work for people who care about more than just profit.”

5. Scripps Health

Headquarters: San Diego, California

Number of U.S. employees: 14,496

Company type: Non-Profit

Employees say:

“Our CEO is approachable and listens to questions from all employees. We are kept informed regarding changes in our industry. The management approach is proactive rather than reactive to any changes that the organization needs to make.”

“Scripps does a wonderful job of selecting talent that mirrors the organization’s mission. This makes it easier to work with your fellow colleagues because they go beyond their job description to ensure the best result for the patient, program, or overall outcome for the organization. There is a sense of pride the employees have that stems from the synergy from one another which makes you automatically feel a part of the Scripps family. Chris Van Gorder is an excellent leader as he is very inclusive and egalitarian in his leadership which makes everyone feel special regardless of their role. You automatically sense that he would roll up his sleeves and get dirty just to get the job done. He also believes in leadership rounding which is something I wish more of the C-level executives would emulate as that further makes employees feel valued.”

6. Jackson Healthcare

Headquarters: Alpharetta, Georgia

Number of U.S. employees: 1,208

Company type: Private

Employees say:

“The difference is night and day from other places I’ve worked. From the minute you walk in the door here, you can feel the positive energy. The benefits and support Jackson Healthcare provides have enabled me to discover and nurture my true talents.”

“The atmosphere and culture of the company is the most unique of any company I’ve ever experienced. It is a very family-oriented company that encourages everyone to improve the lives of everyone they touch, both in and outside of the company. Giving back is a huge part of the company culture and is one of the main things that drew me to the company in the first place. Not only do I feel like the company really cares about each employee, but they also do a great job of showing their appreciation by providing great amenities.”

7. Baptist Health South Florida

“Leaders take the time to listen to employees’ concerns and respond appropriately with actions. There is a great focus on creating a workforce that is engaged and is able to contribute to its community. At the end of the day, our leaders care that we are able to do a good job and provide great care to our patients. Healthcare is not an easy industry to be in these days, but we have done remarkably well in weathering the storm by staying ahead of the game and strategizing to remain financially stable, while staying focused on our core values.”

“I have worked here for 31 years, and plan to stay here through retirement. I have had incredible opportunities to learn, grow, and develop personally and professionally. I truly feel that I make a difference in my work, relationships, and opportunities to mentor my staff each and every day. In a hospital setting, any given day can be the worst day of someone’s life who may be dealing with an unexpected diagnosis, a critical loved one, or an end-of-life situation. Although we may not be able to change the outcome, each of us have the opportunity to make that experience easier and that memory better for a family through our caring and support.”

Headquarters: Memphis, Tennessee

Number of U.S. employees: 4,355

Company type: Non-Profit

Employees say:

“St. Jude does an excellent job making sure everyone knows how important their job is to the institution. Working in the executive branch is not ‘better’ than working as a cashier. Everyone contributes to the mission.”

“They listen to employee suggestions and implement as many as are feasible (bike share, umbrella sharing, mobile app, butterfly/hummingbird garden, to mention a few of the employee suggestions that have been implemented). The top executive has monthly Town Hall meetings to which all employees are invited. Employees can vote on topics to be discussed at the Town Hall ahead of time online. HR examines our benefit package periodically and makes it competitive and attractive to potential employees. We have a nice fitness center on campus and they emphasize work/life balance for all employees.”

10. BayCare Health System

Headquarters: Clearwater, Florida

Number of U.S. employees: 23,459

“The opportunities for advancement are amazing. I have worked as a tech and Baycare is helping me pay for nursing school. On top of that, fellow employees and doctors love to teach and help me get better for when I am a nurse. On top of that, the culture that we develop of trying to work like a family sometimes comes across really well. I love telling people where I work.”

11. Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare

Headquarters: Memphis, Tennessee

Number of U.S. employees: 11,402

Company type: Non-Profit

Employees say:

“Le Bonheur truly has strong culture which offers mutual support, promotes trust, rewards associates’ efforts, and ensures that we know their work is meaningful. Le Bonheur’s executive team continually asks how I’d like to see my career unfold.”

“MLH cares for the well being of all of its patients and employees. Their first priority is every patient that walks through its doors. It provides top-quality healthcare and a clean environment for each patient. It also provides healthcare for the ones in our community who would not seek out medical attention due to financial and/or transportation issues. This type of behavior is also shown to its employees. It provides a great amount of opportunities for employees to receive help for education (employee and family members), financial issues, healthier lifestyles, and emotional stress that an employee might be under due to home life or work, plus much more. I left another healthcare facility to join Methodist LeBonhuer Hospitals and do not regret a single moment.”

“Our culture recognizes the significant importance of our patients to their families and this frequently drives the decisions we make in caring for them. We grant families a huge amount of decision making power into the care of their child. I have seen this company go beyond the basics by providing therapy dogs not only for patients, but also for staff which can truly help make a day brighter and happier. They provide resiliency retreats and pay you while there for you to be able to take time for yourself since our work environment can be very stressful. They are very aware of the stresses on nurses and don’t understaff units or ask nurses to take assignments that are not safe.”

They also provide their employees with many different and unique healthcare resources to improve their wellness by partnering with various outside organizations.

The pillars of our organization allow us to stay focused on what matters, which is the elders that we serve, the stakeholders that we employ, and the family members and communities in which we reside.
