WellSpan Health Named One of 'Top Places to Work in Healthcare' for 2022

WellSpan Health was recently recognized by Becker's Healthcare as a top destination for employment on its 150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare 2022 list. The factors earning WellSpan a spot on the list include workforce diversity, employee benefits, and opportunities for professional growth.

"As we continue to prioritize diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives in our workforce development, it's an honor to see these efforts recognized by an organization that has a deep understanding of what matters in American healthcare," said Bob Batory, senior vice president of WellSpan Health and chief human resources officer. "The development of our Total Rewards program, including compensation and an extensive benefits package, has strategically helped us attract highly engaged team members to join our health system."

Becker's cited WellSpan's employee assistance programs, immediate access to online urgent care, and wellness programs for its team members. They also recognized that in 2021, WellSpan named its first chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, Kimberly Brister, to lead its efforts in building a more diverse workforce.

To continue to grow its workforce, WellSpan will be holding a series of in-person hiring events during May. Potential employees are invited to chat with recruiters about open positions in nursing, surgical technology, behavioral health, home health, food services, housekeeping, imaging, laboratory, pharmacy, and respiratory services and learn more about WellSpan's comprehensive Total Rewards benefits program.
