WEST ORANGE, NJ — "Becker's Hospital Review" recently named RWJBarnabas Health to its 2017 list of "150 Top Places to Work in Healthcare," a compilation of hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgical centers, physician groups, vendors and other healthcare organizations that provide excellent work environments and outstanding benefits to their employees.
On behalf of RWJBarnabas Health, President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Barry Ostrowsky said the health center, which is committed to creating an environment for employees where they experience trust, camaraderie and a sense of pride, was honored to be listed in the Top 150.
