It’s the unique benefits, inclusive culture and focus on team member development that has earned Atlantic Health System the number 62 spot on Modern Healthcare’s Best Places to Work in Healthcare list. This is the second year in a row that Atlantic Health System, the only healthcare system from New Jersey to make the list, has been selected for inclusion into this elite group.

The award is based, in part, on anonymous survey responses from a sampling of Atlantic Health System’s more than 17,000 team members.

The Modern Healthcare accolade is just the latest recognition for Atlantic Health System’s award-winning workplace culture. Earlier this year, Atlantic Health System was named to Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For list for the 11th consecutive year, and named to Fortune’s Best Workplace in Health Care and BioPharma list. Additionally, each of its medical centers earned recognitions for clinical excellence from organizations including Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Healthgrades, the Leapfrog Group, Becker’s Hospital Review and Castle Connolly and were given environmental sustainability awards from Practice Greenhealth.
