Northwell Health Is the Only Hospital System on Long Island to be Named Among 150 Top Places to Work in Annual Health Care Survey

Becker’s Hospital Review named Northwell Health one of the “150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare" for 2017.

Northwell Health is the only hospital system on Long Island and one of four hospitals in New York State named to the “150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare” 2017 list by Becker’s Hospital Review.  

The list recognizes organizations committed to fulfilling missions, creating outstanding cultures and offering competitive benefits to their employees.  Northwell Health has 21 hospitals and 61,000 employees in the New York metropolitan area and beyond.

“We are proud to be recognized nationally as one of the best places to work in the health care industry,” said Michael J. Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health. “Our mission is to continually deliver the best quality health care services to the populations we serve. Key to that mission is also providing our employees with an engaged culture, outstanding benefits and an array of innovative professional and personal opportunities in the workplace. Simply put: Happy employees make happy patients.”

CareConnect Insurance Company, Inc., part of Northwell Health, was also recognized by Becker’s Hospital Review as one of 2017’s “150 Great Places to Work in Health Care.” Launched in 2013, CareConnect is the first provider-owned commercial health insurance company in the state.

“We’re honored to be ranked among the top places to work in health care,” said Alan J. Murray, CareConnect’s president and CEO. “We went through tremendous changes in 2016, as any company would that quadrupled in size in a year, and it was the nimbleness, adaptability and unstinting dedication of our staff that allowed us to stay true to our vision. This esteemed award is a testament to them.” 

CareConnect provides affordable access to excellent care to more than 120,000 members in downstate New York. Just as its employees are committed to making a difference in members’ lives, CareConnect is committed to providing its staff with opportunities for growth, development, engagement and satisfaction.  

The "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare" list features both health care provider organizations and other health care-specific companies, such as medical societies, consulting groups, technology firms and insurance carriers. Organizations included provide vital and supportive workplace environments, encourage professional development among their employees and promote tomorrow's leaders.

The Becker's Hospital Review accepted nominations for this list and developed an editorial review process to include organizations that have gone above and beyond to make their hospitals, health systems and companies great places to work.
