The Boston Business Journal
has once again named Lowell General Hospital
as a recipient of its prestigious Best Places to Work list. Lowell General ranked sixth in the extra-large company category, which honored businesses with 1,000 or more employees. This is the seventh consecutive year that Lowell General Hospital has been named to the Boston Business Journal's Best Places to Work list.
The Boston Business Journal honored a total of 80 companies and organizations from a diverse range of industries and communities throughout Massachusetts at its annual gala celebration last night at Symphony Hall in Boston
. As the only hospital on the list, Lowell General was selected as one of over 300 companies to qualify for consideration based on a two-stage nomination process and the results of employee-satisfaction surveys.
The honor recognizes Lowell General Hospital’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of employee satisfaction, working conditions and company culture.
“Throughout all of the changes that Lowell General has seen over the past few years, the commitment of our employees to our patients, to each other and to our promise to provide Complete connected care has remained unchanged,” said Norm Deschene, CEO of Wellforce, Circle Health and Lowell General Hospital. “As a member of Wellforce, our team is always focused on the bigger picture – how can we better care for our patients and bring the care they need closer to home. This recognition showcases not only the incredible workplace culture that our team has created, but also how that culture positively impacts those around us. I am so proud of our team and the dedication they have for the important role they play in our community.”
The annual ranking by the business publication is based upon a third-party survey of all employees regarding job satisfaction, teamwork, benefits programs, management quality, work environment and opportunities for growth, among other criteria.
Lowell General Hospital was first named to the Boston Business Journal Top Place to Work list in 2010.
