“Westmed Medical Group is honored to announce that Fortune and Great Place to Work are again recognizing us as one of the 2018 Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma,” said Anthony Viceroy, CEO of the award-winning multi-specialty medical practice. “Westmed took the 21st spot on the list, moving up from #27 last year.” This is the second year in a row that Fortune recognized the Purchase-based medical group as a top tier organization in the country, and the fourth year that it has been rated by Great Places to Work.
The 2018 ranking considered input from more than 95,000 employees in the health care and biotechnology and pharmaceutical sectors. Great Place to Work, a research and consulting firm, evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job–such as “belief that their work makes a difference and “actually love coming to work”–to determine which organizations would be named the year’s Best Workplaces.
“This national recognition is a testament to the hard work, passion and service that each of our employees bring to our medical practice every single day,” said Mr. Viceroy. “It is the pride our team has in the work they do, and the comprehensive lifelong patient care they provide, that allows us to continue to earn a spot on this list,” said Viceroy.
“We have implemented a strong employee engagement program at Westmed, and patient loyalty and satisfaction scores continue to lead nationwide as a result. Among the ways we engage is through our quarterly awards program that highlights outstanding employees who demonstrate and promote our culture and values built around quality, efficiency and service. We also foster team-building by sponsoring social events and corporate sports teams that our employees look forward to each year.”
Viceroy said further, “The Westmed team also participates in community service activities through partnerships with companies such as the American Cancer Society, Volunteer NY! and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Family Services of Westchester.”
“Great Place to Work is proud of these Best Workplaces that enable their people to be innovators in their field,” said Michael Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like Westmed Medical Group set the bar for other health care and biopharma companies, who prove that taking care of employees will give them the tools and motivation they need to provide industry-leading care and services to patients and customers.”
The Best Workplaces in Health Care & Biopharma is one of a series of rankings by Great Place to Work and Fortune, based on employee feedback from Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations.
