As an organization dedicated to the well-being of both patients and the employees committed to their care, Cleveland Clinic is proud to announce it has been named one of the country’s Best Workplaces in Health Care.

Cleveland Clinic ranked No. 17 on the list, which is based on surveys from nearly 88,000 employees across the industry. The results demonstrate that Cleveland Clinic employees enjoy a supportive work environment with effective communication and trust in leadership.

“We believe our employees perform best in a workplace where they are appreciated, supported and encouraged to succeed,” said Toby Cosgrove, M.D., Cleveland Clinic President and CEO. “We care about our caregivers and strive to continually listen to their feedback and develop programs and resources that support them, from career development opportunities to our total rewards program. Our caregivers come to work every day with a purpose – to put patients first – and we are proud of them and the work they do.”
