SVHC among Vermont's best places to work for 5th straight year
BENNINGTON — Southwestern Vermont Health Care has been named one of the 2019's Best Places to Work for the fifth year in a row. SVHC received the honor for the first time in 2015. It remains the only hospital in the state of Vermont to be recognized by the awards program.
"The employees of SVHC derive genuine satisfaction in fulfilling our mission of exceptional care and comfort for the people we serve," said Tom Dee, president and chief executive officer of SVHC. "It's their commitment and teamwork that enable our groundbreaking achievements and grow SVHC's reputation as a place to make a truly meaningful and rewarding career."
This statewide program is operated by Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce with partnership from the Society for Human Resource Management, the Vermont Department of Labor, and the Vermont Department of Economic Development. The program surveys and identifies the best places of employment to recognize organizations that benefit the state's economy, its workforce, and businesses.
In addition to the Vermont Business Magazine honor, SVHC has also appeared on Becker's Hospital Review's national list of the Top 150 Places to Work in Healthcare since 2016. Both Southwestern Vermont Medical Center and the Centers for Living and Rehabilitation, SVHC's skilled nursing facility, have been awarded the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services' five-star rating, and in 2017, the hospital received the American Nurses Credentialing Center's top honor, the Magnet Prize.
The final rankings for each category of the Best Places to Work in Vermont awards will be announced at a special awards presentation in early spring 2019. A listing of SVHC's open positions and other workplace information can be found at svhealthcare.org/careers.
