    Those eligible for the list consist of U.S. health care providers, insurers, and suppliers with at least 25 employees that have been in business for at least a year. Each applicant must be a for-profit business, a nonprofit business, or a government entity.

    Applicants submit a two-part application to be considered for the list. The first part, worth 25% of a company's total score, addresses workplace policies, practices, and demographics. The second part, worth 75% of a company's total score, is an employee survey designed to measure employee experience.

    The currently released list is unranked. Modern Healthcare will release a ranked version during its Best Places to Work Gala on Sept. 16.
