Hendersonville, N.C. (May 5, 2013) – Park Ridge Health is pleased to announce its selection as one of the “100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” by Becker's Hospital Review and Becker's ASC Review. Other hospitals recognized in this prestigious list include Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. This recognition is based on a set of standards that place Park Ridge Health among the top 100 health care organizations in the country for robust benefits, wellness initiatives, professional development opportunities and work environments that promote employee collaboration and satisfaction.
“At Park Ridge Health, we’re proud of our exceptional team of more than 1,200 caregivers and staff who provide a nationally leading patient experience, and are pleased to provide an award-winning work environment for them so they can serve with excellence and compassion,” said Jimm Bunch, President & CEO of Park Ridge Health. “We’re thankful for this formal recognition of the world-class care we provide for our team members who serve our community through more than 350,000 patient interactions each year.”
Some unique benefits available to employees of Park Ridge Health include a health savings plan; semiyearly bonuses based on completion of quality, financial and patient satisfaction goals; a tuition reimbursement program; and a 50-percent retirement matching program for up to 4 percent of employee contributions. Team members at Park Ridge Health also enjoy the opportunity to earn up to $600 annually through a wellness incentive plan, made easier through access to an on-site fitness center and discounted memberships available at five other local fitness facilities.
“This is an exciting time for Park Ridge Health, as physicians in the area reach out to partner with us at a rate we have never experienced before,” said Jason Wells, Vice President of Physician Services at Park Ridge Health. “We believe this is due in large part to the wellness-focused, innovative, team-centered culture at Park Ridge Health, and our exciting vision for the future of health in our region.”
A full list of winners of the “100 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” will be featured in the May/June issues of Becker’s Hospital Review, Becker’s ASC Review and Becker’s Spine Review, as well as on the publications’ websites.
