Becker’s Hospital Review has put Bridgeport Hospital on its 2013 list of “100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.”
Becker’s publishes the list annually and selects facilities through nominations and editorial research. The chosen organizations are picked for “their robust benefits, wellness initiatives, professional development opportunities and work environments that promote employee collaboration and satisfaction.” Bridgeport, which appears to be the only Connecticut facility on the list, earned its spot due largely to its benefits package, which includes tuition reimbursement for full- and part-time employees, and a wellness reimbursement program that provides $200 annually if employees visit a fitness center for one year or participate in scheduled fitness classes.
Other employers on the list included Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.
Becker’s is a publication of ASC Communications, which provides business and legal information for hospital and health system leaders, owners and operators of ambulatory surgery centers and leaders of orthopedic and spine practices. ASC Communications takes advantage of multiple channels to reach these decision-makers of the hospital and outpatient surgical community, including: print magazines (Becker’s Hospital Review, Becker’s ASC Review and Becker’s Orthopedic & Spine Review); two industry-leading ASC conferences and a new hospital and health system conference; regularly delivered e-newsletters; as well as www.BeckersHospitalReview.com, www.BeckersASC.com, www.BeckersOrthopedicandSpine.com and a variety of webinars and teleconferences.
