Atlantic Health System Awarded by Modern Healthcare as a Best Place to Work

May 14, 2018

May 14, 2018, Morristown, NJ – Atlantic Health System, an integrated health care delivery system, today announced that it has been named to the 2018 list of Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare. Atlantic Health was the top rated company in New Jersey to make the list and the only health care system from New Jersey included.

2018 marks the first time Atlantic Health System has earned a spot on this national list, which identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. It comes on the heels of Atlantic Health System’s placement on Great Place to Work and Fortune Magazine’s 2018 Best Workplaces in Health Care list and Becker’s Hospital Review’s ranking of the 150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare for 2018.

“Thank you to our team members for continuing to deliver extraordinary results for both our patients and our entire organization,” said Nikki Sumpter, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Atlantic Health System. “Earning a spot on Modern Healthcare’s coveted list of Best Places to Work in Healthcare is a fitting honor to the mindful and supportive culture our team members show every day they come to work.”

“Whether on the frontline or in the top office, healthcare employees witness moments that can either inspire or dishearten them. That can take a toll on an individual and healthcare organizations must take extra steps to ensure that highs and lows during the workday don’t impact engagement or performance,” said Modern Healthcare Editor Aurora Aguilar. “This year’s best places to work, voted on by the employees themselves, exemplify what it takes to maintain dedication and satisfaction among its employees and that is the key to good patient care.”

Atlantic Health System will be honored at the 2018 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards gala on Thursday, September 27, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.
