    The list includes providers, suppliers, and various other firms in the health care industry. Fifty-four Advisory Board members were recognized this year.


    Congratulations to Advisory Board members named to the list

    Any provider, insurer, or supplier in the U.S. health care industry with at least 25 employees that has been in business for at least a year can apply to be considered for the list.

    To determine the list, Modern Healthcare collects information from the each applicant's leadership team about the company's policies, practices, demographics, and benefits. The publication then surveys the company's staff about eight core areas:

    • Leadership and planning;
    • Corporate culture and communications;
    • Role satisfaction;
    • Work environment;
    • Relationship with supervisor;
    • Training and development;
    • Pay and benefits; and
    • Overall engagement.

    Currently, Modern Healthcare has released their list in alphabetical order. The publication will release the ranked list on Sept. 27 at an awards dinner in Dallas during its annual Workplace of the Future conference. The ranked list will also be published as a supplement to the Oct. 1 issue of Modern Healthcare (Modern Healthcare, 5/12; Modern Healthcare methodology, accessed 5/18; Modern Healthcare eligibility requirements, accessed 5/18).
