Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE have named Kettering Adventist HealthCare one of the Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma in the United States.

Kettering Adventist HealthCare ranked 15 on the list, which is based on input from more than 95,000 employees in the healthcare, biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. Employees completed an anonymous Trust Index© survey and Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included employee pride in the organization’s community impact, belief that their work makes a difference, and feeling their work has special meaning.

A Network Inclusion Officer spearheads initiatives to celebrate diversity within the organization. Outstanding employees are honored at recognition events, and celebrations are held to honor the impactful work of all employees.
