ForbesWeekly - - NEWS - BY KARSTEN STRAUSS, FORBES STAFF

It’s a good time to be pur­su­ing a ca­reer in health­care. Ad­vances in tech­nol­ogy, in­creases in health in­surance cov­er­age in re­cent years, and the fact that peo­ple are liv­ing longer; all fuel an in­creas­ing need for work­ers in the health­care space.

But when it comes to the in­sti­tu­tions in the United States where those in health­care work, which are most ap­pre­ci­ated by their em­ploy­ees?

In­deed.com— a large job search plat­form a vast ar­chive of com­pany re­views—sought to an­swer that ques­tion by look­ing through its data­base to find which hos­pi­tals rated best among cur­rent and former em­ploy­ees. For a look at the top 10 hos­pi­tals on In­deed.com’s ros­ter, check out our slideshow be­low.

“We have seen a sig­nif­i­cant short­age of health­care pro­fes­sion­als in the U.S. for years,” In­deed se­nior vice pres­i­dent, Paul D’Arcy, said along with the re­lease of the data. “With rapid growth in de­mand for nurses and doc­tors, and a much slower growth in sup­ply, many pro­fes­sion­als with these highly tech­ni­cal skills are find­ing the job mar­ket to be in their fa­vor.”

In its re­search, In­deed looked at all the hos­pi­tals that had re­ceived at least 50 re­views by cur­rent and former em­ploy­ees be­tween July 2015 and June 2017. Staff then crunched the num­bers to dis­cover which had the high­est av­er­age rat­ings in the cat­e­gory of over­all em­ployee ex­pe­ri­ence. The re­sult was a ros­ter of 25 top hos­pi­tals.

Top­ping the list was Mas­sachusetts Gen­eral Hospi­tal. Based in Bos­ton, the in­sti­tu­tion is the teach­ing hospi­tal of Har­vard Med­i­cal School and a bio­med­i­cal re­search fa­cil­ity. The third-old­est gen­eral hospi­tal in the coun­try, its spe­cial­ties in­clude AIDS, car­dio­vas­cu­lar re­search, can­cer and hu­man ge­net­ics.

Ac­cord­ing to In­deed, em­ploy­ees lauded Mass Gen­eral’s ben­e­fits, di­ver­sity and op­por­tu­ni­ties for ad­vance­ment. In ad­di­tion to its marks in the em­ployee ex­pe­ri­ence cat­e­gory, Mas­sachusetts Gen­eral Hospi­tal also ranks No. 1 in the in­di­vid­ual

rank­ings for best man­age­ment and work/life bal­ance.

Bap­tist Health South Florida holds the sec­ond place on the list. Head­quar­tered in South Mi­ami (Coral Gables, to be ex­act), the or­ga­ni­za­tion is the sec­ond largest em­ployer in the state of Florida, and a non-profit or­ga­ni­za­tion that spe­cial­izes in sur­gi­cal, di­ag­nos­tic and ur­gent care ser­vices. The hos­pi­tals man­age­ment re­ceived praise from em­ploy­ees, and it came in sec­ond in the work/life bal­ance cat­e­gory.

In third place, be­hind Bap­tist Health, we find Houston Methodist. Well known as a teach­ing hospi­tal, it spe­cial­izes in car­dio­vas­cu­lar surgery, can­cer, epilepsy treat­ment and or­gan trans­plan­ta­tion. Ac­cord­ing to re­views pub­lished on In­deed.com, em­ploy­ees spoke pos­i­tively about the hospi­tal’s salaries, quar­terly bonuses, ben­e­fits, and tu­ition re­im­burse­ment; as well as its work en­vi­ron­ment. Houston Methodist has the sec­ond high­est rat­ing for com­pany cul­ture, ac­cord­ing to em­ployee re­views.
