Wednesday, 03 December 2008 

PHILADELPHIA (October 28, 2008) — Hahnemann University Hospital is proud to announce that Philadelphia Business Journal has ranked the hospital as one of the Philadelphia region’s Best Places to Work for 2008. The award recognizes the company’s achievements in creating a positive work environment that attracts and retains employees through a combination of benefits, working conditions and company culture.  

Hahnemann was one of hundreds to enter, securing its position on this prestigious list based on the strength of its benefits and programs as evaluated by its employees.  

“We participated in the survey because we believe our culture is distinctive in its ability to foster team building in order to provide quality health care,” said Michael P. Halter, chief executive officer of Hahnemann University Hospital. “We are able to do this by fostering working relationships with a number of medical and non-medical professionals to deliver superior healthcare. It is overwhelming the number of talented individuals who have spent their entire careers at our institution. Hahnemann is very proud of its employees, and we’re proud to be a winner of this award.”  

The Philadelphia Business Journal’s research partner, Wichita, Kansas-based Quantum Market Research, tabulated the results of thousands of online surveys completed by employees to establish the rank order. Common themes among top companies focused on work-life balance; respect and caring for employees; recognition of accomplishments; feeling empowered; good teamwork and commitment to community.  

“The best places to work are companies that recognize employees as their best asset, instrumental in maintaining the quality and reputation for services and products,” said Bernard Dagenais, Philadelphia Business Journal editor. “The right work environment can create a powerful business advantage.”
