UF Health honored among “Best Places to Work” in the U.S.

University of Florida Health has placed 21st in Indeed.com’s 2017 “Best Places to Work” ranking among U.S. hospitals or health systems.

The ranking is based on employee reviews written on Indeed, a popular search engine for job postings, between July 2015 and June 2017. Indeed curated 15 million reviews of U.S. companies.

UF Health, including UF Health Shands Hospital, is one of four in Florida to be ranked in the top 25.

“We’re proud of our workforce and strive to make UF Health an inspiring and fulfilling place to come to work,” said Ed Jimenez, chief executive officer of UF Health Shands. “Their dedication shows in the high quality of care they continually provide to patients. We’re all committed to do our very best for our patients each and every day we come to work.”

Teaching hospitals were particularly well presented in the Indeed.com ranking, led by top-ranked Massachusetts General Hospital.

Indeed.com said that among the things employees often cited in their reviews of the top 25 hospitals or health systems are a “diverse” workplace with top-tier research teams and ample opportunities for advancement.

In U.S. News & World Report surveys of hospitals released earlier this year, UF Health Shands ranked in 12 adult and pediatric specialties, more than any other hospital in Florida for the third year in a row.
