ELIZABETH, NJ - For the second year in a row, Becker’s Hospital Review has named Trinitas Regional Medical Center one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare.  The national list recognizes healthcare organizations that offer outstanding workplace environments.

“Trinitas is proud to be on the Becker Healthcare list for the second year in a row,” says Gary S. Horan, FACHE, President and Chief Executive Officer.  “Trinitas has impressive credentials in the areas that Becker's Hospital Review uses to evaluate and select organizations for its list. Our 2,800 employees are some of the most involved members of the community, and they excel because they are active, compassionate, and motivated.  I believe that by being able to put this passion into practice, our employees tend to naturally have a higher level of morale and team spirit.

To qualify for the Great Places to Work in Healthcare list, Becker Healthcare considers organizations that have received national, state or local recognition in workplace excellence. Noteworthy employee benefits offerings, wellness initiatives, and efforts to improve professional development are also assessed. A diverse team and work-life balance have also proven to foster a sense of community among employees.

Trinitas Regional Medical Center, which employs almost 2,800 individuals, developed its “Pat on the Back” awards program to recognize employees who go above and beyond on a continuous basis. The hospital also awards four employees annually the Elizabeth I. Kellogg Award which includes $5,000 for their commitment to the hospital’s mission, vision and values. Trinitas has been honored as a Platinum level Fit-Friendly Worksite by the American Heart Association since 2012 and received the Health Care’s Most Wired recognition for five consecutive years.

Employees can take advantage of the hospital’s tuition reimbursement program, on-site fitness facility and leadership academy program; in addition, employees who use the Trinitas network are offered discounted healthcare services at all Trinitas sites. For 2015 – 2020, the National League for Nursing (NLN) has designated Trinitas for a third time as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education for “Creating a Workplace Environment that Supports the Academic Progression of Nurses.” The NLN also designated the Trinitas School of Nursing as a Center of Excellence, making it the first hospital-based nursing school in the United States to receive this honor.

Trinitas has received multiple CEO Cancer Gold Standard accreditations for its overall promotion of healthy lifestyles to prevent cancer among its employees. The Renal Services Department at Trinitas holds regional 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program status from Quality Network Insights – a designation held by less than 10% of dialysis centers in New Jersey.

“With the hospital recently named a Castle Connolly Top Hospital for a fourth consecutive year, Trinitas will continue to enhance employee engagement internally as this ultimately translates into higher quality service for our patients,” stated Glenn Nacion, Vice President & Chief Human Resources Officer at Trinitas.
