Yale New Haven Hospital named by Becker's as a great place to work

4/19/2012 — Yale New Haven Hospital has been named to the 2012 Becker's Hospital Review list of the "Great Places to Work in Healthcare." Becker's top 100 workplaces list recognizes healthcare organizations that create an outstanding workplace through robust benefits, opportunities for development and a strong sense of community.

In describing their selection process, Becker's considers workplaces that go "above and beyond" to keep their employees healthy and motivated, consistently achieve high employee satisfaction scores and report low turnover rates.

According to Becker's, YNHH was recognized in part due to its various programs benefiting employees including an annual merit pay program, year-end bonuses based on the hospital's overall performance, special achievement awards and several programs designed to welcome employee feedback and encourage communication between staff and management.

Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH), part of Yale New Haven Health, is a nationally recognized, 1,541-bed, not-for-profit hospital serving as the primary teaching hospital for the Yale School of Medicine (YSM). Founded as the fourth voluntary hospital in the U.S. in 1826, today, YNHH has two New Haven-based campuses, and also includes Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, Yale New Haven Psychiatric Hospital and Smilow Cancer Hospital. YNHH has received Magnet designation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center, the nation’s highest honor of nursing excellence.
