Atlantic Health System Earns Spot for 11th Year on Fortune’s ‘100 Best Companies To Work For®’ List

Proving that being extraordinary matters, Atlantic Health System, a leading provider of health care in New Jersey, was once again named to Fortune’s “100 Best Companies to Work For®,” ranking number 87 in its 11th consecutive year on the prestigious annual list.

“Our culture of innovation, trust and respect drives our success,” said Brian Gragnolati, President and CEO of Atlantic Health System. “Every member of our team is focused on quality and doing what is best for our patients and their families. As a result, we are delivering the best possible care and ensuring an innovative, collaborative workforce that is excited about the impact of their contributions.”

“The strength of our organization is driven by the unique and individualized experiences of our team members and with everything we do, we are focused on providing a culture of inclusion and respect where every person is accepted and appreciated,” said Nikki Sumpter, Senior Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Atlantic Health System. “We have a phenomenal culture fostered by teamwork and camaraderie. I continue to be inspired by the commitment of each and every team member.”

With more than 16,800 team members across five medical centers, a children’s hospital, over 400 sites of care, and one of the largest Accountable Care Organizations in the country, each location at Atlantic Health System has its own culture to be celebrated and recognized.

As the only health care system in New Jersey to be recognized, and the top-ranked New Jersey company on the Fortune list, Atlantic Health System appears alongside some of the country’s best-known and most successful organizations, such as Wegmans and American Express.

“Our mission is to build healthier communities and we can only accomplish that by ensuring we have an outstanding culture and opportunities for each team member to thrive as they care for our patients,” added Gragnolati.

Team Member Engagement and Development

Innovation is a key to success, but ingenuity does not always happen in a lab or in a center. It happens when health care professionals faced with daily challenges feel empowered to develop real-life solutions. To channel that creativity, Atlantic Health created an internal innovation driver, Atlantic Health Advancements (AHa!), to support new ideas and embrace creative solutions generated by team members on the frontlines of patient care. To enhance team member engagement and development, Atlantic Health also offers tuition reimbursement, career coaching and extensive opportunities for professional training and education, including online and instructor-led classes in technology, man¬agement, leadership, diversity and customer experience.

Unique Benefits for Team Members and Their Families

Atlantic Health System has developed holistic benefit programs to meet its team members’ diverse needs. This year, in addition to comprehensive medical, dental and vision benefits, AHS introduced voluntary benefits, such as pet, auto, home and critical care insurance, legal services, identity theft protection and more.

The Atlantic Health System Wellness Rewards program is also focused on overall well-being, including health and financial wellness, and provides financial benefits for achieving personal wellness goals. Knowing that many Atlantic Health team members have either young children or care for an elderly parent, Atlantic Health offers on-site and discounted daycare, elder care, back-up care, and even preferred pricing and access at local daycares. Understanding that team members lead busy lives, Atlantic Health brings convenience to them with a host of on-site concierge services, such as car wash and detailing, dry cleaning, full-service dental care, fitness classes, massages and more.

“The 2019 100 Best are the leaders in creating the most innovative workplaces built on trust,” said Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “Employees at these organizations feel valued, respected and heard, and are inspired to be their best selves because of the commitment these winning companies have made to creating a great workplace for all employees
, no matter who they are or what they do for the company.”
