WASHINGTON (May 15, 2019) -
The American College of Cardiology has been selected as one of the 2019 Best Places to Work in Healthcare by Modern Healthcare. This is the fourth year in a row that the College has been recognized with this honor.
“The ACC is in the first year of our Strategic Plan, and the College has gone through a number of transitions and transformations recently – and will continue to do so as we work to meet our Mission and realize our Vision,” said ACC CEO Timothy W. Attebery, DSc, MBA, FACHE. “This honor bestowed upon the College is a direct reflection of how well we are doing as an employer in health care throughout these transitions and is the result of the hard work and dedication of ACC’s staff in ensuring that we continue to be a great organization.”
This award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the health care industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. The complete list of this year’s winners, in alphabetical order, is available here. Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring ranked lists of all the winners with its September 30 issue.
“Despite the political headwinds that the industry faces, healthcare organizations continue to be dominant economic engines in their communities,” said Aurora Aguilar, editor of Modern Healthcare. “Organizations recognized on this year’s list have also weathered mergers and reorganizations and have come out stronger. As evidenced every month by the Bureau of Labor Statistics employment numbers, the industry shows little sign of slowing down when it comes to creating jobs. And that puts pressure on employers to create not only robust compensation and benefit packages, but to create a sense of loyalty in competitive labor market. We congratulate the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for going above and beyond to create fulfilling environments for the nation’s professional caregivers.”
In 2018, ACC was ranked 20 out of 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare in the health care supplier category. In 2017, ACC was ranked 32 in the top 100 best places to work list. ACC will be recognized and learn its 2019 ranking during the 2019 Best Places to Work in Healthcare awards gala on Sept. 26, 2019, at the Renaissance Dallas.
