OAKLAND, Calif., May 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kaiser Permanente this week was named among the "150 Great Places to Work in Health Care" for 2014 by Becker's Hospital Review.
A national publication focused on the business and legal issues of health systems, Becker's Hospital Review joins Computerworld magazine, Greatlist.com, Careerbliss.com and the San Francisco Business Times, all of which have similarly honored Kaiser Permanente in the past 12 months.
The 150 organizations on the list were chosen, according to Becker's, for their robust benefits, wellness initiatives, commitment to diversity and inclusion, professional development opportunities, and work environments that promote employee satisfaction and work-life balance.
In addition, Kaiser Permanente was recently named No. 4 on DiversityInc's Top 50 Companies for Diversity List for 2014.
The Becker's list is not a ranking (it is displayed in alphabetical order) and is developed through nominations and editorial research. The list was expanded this year to include health care providers—medical groups, ambulatory surgery centers, hospitals and health systems—along with other types of health care-specific companies, such as consulting firms, health IT vendors and medical societies.
