The Philadelphia Business Journal has named Main Line Health as one of the Best Places to Work in the Greater Philadelphia area for 2013. The official rankings will be announced in an awards ceremony on September 18, 2013 at the Wells Fargo Center. This is the seventh year that Main Line Health has received this designation. A key part of the Best Places to Work selection was Main Line Health employees’ responses in an anonymous survey regarding the experience the health system delivers to patients and each other, the work environment and benefits.
“We are elated to once again be named among the Best Places to Work in the Greater Philadelphia area,” said Paul Yakulis, senior vice president, Human Resources. “Earning this accolade through voting by our
employees is a testament to our mission of not only providing a superior patient experience, but also our constant efforts to create a work environment that enables employees to realize their value. Congratulations to everyone at Main Line Health for helping to keep the organization among the Best Places to Work.”
Main Line Health and other winners will also be honored in a special section of the Philadelphia Business Journal on September 20, 2013.
