Yale New Haven named among the 100 best places to work in healthcare

Oct. 19, 2011 — Yale New Haven Hospital has been named among the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare in the United States by Modern Healthcare magazine. YNHH is the only Connecticut hospital recognized by the magazine in this year’s annual survey of more than 317 U.S. healthcare companies.

"It is a great honor to be ranked among the country’s best leading healthcare organizations as a best place to work," said Paul Patton, vice president of human resources at YNHH. "At Yale New Haven, it is our goal to set the standard for offering competitive employee benefits, instituting family-friendly policies and ensuring a healthy and engaged workforce."

Modern Healthcare determined its Best Places to Work in Healthcare through a survey of employers detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked in-depth questions in eight core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.

YNHH has been recognized several times as an employer of choice for the region, offering numerous benefits and programs to help employees meet work-life demands, such as internal advancement, flexible work arrangements, tuition reimbursement, dependent tuition, employee health and wellness programs, and a unique performance incentive plan which allows employees to share in the hospital’s financial success. In addition to Modern Healthcare, Yale New Haven has been recognized as an employer of choice by the Hartford Business Journal, National Association for Female Executives, Becker’s Hospital Review and Working Mother magazine this year.

YNHH was previously recognized by Modern Healthcare as a Best Place to Work in 2009.
