National Magazine Names SwedishAmerican Among “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” for 3rd Straight Year

Rockford, IL – For the third consecutive year, national industry magazine Becker's Healthcare included SwedishAmerican in its "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare" list, which includes both U.S. healthcare provider organizations, such as hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgical centers and home health agencies, as well as other types of healthcare-specific companies, like consulting firms, health IT vendors, medical societies and more. A version of this list has been published every year since 2011, but this is the third year the list features both providers and non-provider organizations.

The Becker's Healthcare editorial team determined the organizations included on this year's list. Organizations that submitted nominations were considered, as were organizations that received national, state or local recognition previously earned for workplace excellence, as well as benefits offerings, wellness initiatives and efforts to improve professional development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance and a sense of community among employees.

"SwedishAmerican is proud to be recognized by Becker's Healthcare and included in this prestigious ranking for the third straight year," says Human Resources Vice President Jerry Guinane. "Our commitment to our associates is conveyed through our mission and our commitment of offering diverse benefits programs and caring for the well-being of our associates. We have a workforce that is engaged and invested in our mission, 'Through excellence in healthcare and compassionate service, we care for our community.’ '"
