WellSpan Health recognized as one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Women

As WellSpan prioritizes diversity, equity and inclusion, with a focus on implementing innovative workplace solutions, the organization has been selected as one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Women by Newsweek for 2023.

WellSpan is the only healthcare system in Pennsylvania to receive an equality score of five stars based on categories of "compensation and benefits," "work-life balance" and "proactive management of a diverse workforce."

"More than 80% of WellSpan's 20,000 team members are women, and it gives us great pride to know they choose to work for an organization that is forward-thinking," said Roxanna Gapstur, Ph.D., R.N., president and CEO, WellSpan Health. "With recent studies showing some women leaving health care positions due to burnout and inequities, WellSpan is more focused than ever on providing opportunities, benefits and services to not only support women, but ensuring every team member at all career levels can excel."

This recognition by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group is based on results of a survey of more than 37,000 female employees and a large-scale employer study based on over 224,000 company reviews.

From a competitive benefits package which includes expanded coverage for both fertility and adoption coverage, to loan forgiveness, tuition reimbursement and career development programs, as well as an innovative and flexible in-house traveling nurse program, WellSpan provides all team members opportunities to advance their skill set and thrive. 

WellSpan is also committed to growing its pipeline of the next generation of team members, partnering with dozens of local colleges to develop programs to attract the brightest health science graduates who can in turn make a difference in health care right here in South Central Pennsylvania.
