Categories: Press Room

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., March 22, 2016 --- Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian has been recognized by Becker’s Healthcare as one of the “150 Great Place to Work in Healthcare.”

“Hoag is honored to be named one of the greatest places to work in healthcare,” said Robert T. Braithwaite, Hoag president and chief executive officer. “We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality services to our community and it would not be possible without our employees’ love and commitment to Hoag. This dedication truly makes a difference in people’s lives.”

Hoag is one of ten organizations in California to be named to the 2016 edition of the list. Organizations that received this designation were recognized 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.

The list features 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 nonprovider organizations.
