A hospital in the region ranks among the greatest places to work in the health care industry.

Holland Hospital is the lone organization from the region in the ranking of the "150 Greatest Places to Work in Healthcare" posted last month by Becker’s Hospital Review, a monthly trade publication within the Becker’s Healthcare portfolio.

The ranking features a range of health care organizations that promote employee satisfaction through benefits, opportunities and excellent work environments.

Holland Hospital

Holland Hospital is a 189-bed facility with more than 300 physicians and approximately 550 registered nurses working within the main campus and at off-site locations.

Becker’s Hospital Review said that in a recent employee satisfaction survey, nine out of 10 people responded positively about working at the hospital. Holland Hospital also offers an employer-matched 401(k) plan and various wellness initiatives: annual health screenings, health coaches and childcare services.

The publication also considered the recognition Holland Hospital has received from the industry: Truven Health Analytics and Healthgrades for clinical expertise; Michigan Business & Professional Association as a National Best and Brightest Company to Work For; and Healthiest Places for one of the 100 Healthiest Workplaces in America.

Across the state

Orthopedic Associates of Port Huron and the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor are also in the ranking.

The Port Huron orthopedic practice was established in 1983 and employs 10 physicians, specializing in joint, bone and muscle care.

The U-M health system employs more than 18,500 people and has a 2:1 matching retirement plan for its employees after the first year of working within the system.

Methodology

Organizations in the ranking were chosen based on nominations and research conducted by the editorial team at Becker’s Healthcare.

Becker’s Healthcare evaluated the health care providers based on several criteria: employee benefits, commitment to diversity and inclusion, wellness initiatives, professional development opportunities and an environment encouraging a work-life balance.
