WellSpan Health recognized for second year in a row as one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Women

For the second year in a row, WellSpan Health's efforts to create a welcoming workplace have been recognized by Newsweek as one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Women in its 2024 list. WellSpan is one of a small number of Pennsylvania businesses featured on the list to receive a full 5-star rating, the highest level of achievement designated by the publication that analyzes metrics including compensation, work-life balance and proactive management on diversity.

"As healthcare professionals and leaders, women make an impact in roles across every aspect of our organization. WellSpan is committed to creating a workplace that supports not only women in their career goals, but every person that aspires to change lives in the healthcare profession," said Roxanna Gapstur, Ph.D., R.N., president and CEO, WellSpan Health. "We are a forward-thinking organization, and we firmly believe that fostering an inclusive and diverse environment empowers women to thrive."

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.

This recognition by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group is based on results of a survey of more than 142,000 female employees and a large-scale employer study based on over 848,000 company reviews.
