Top Workplaces Award for Adventist Medical Center

You have a lot of choices in where to turn for your health care. If you've been a patient at Adventist Medical Center, you know our mission is at the center of all we do. It sets us apart and impacts everyone here, including our own employees.

That's why we're excited that The Oregonian recently named Adventist Medical Center one of Oregon's Top Workplaces.

One of Its Kind

Adventist Medical Center is the only hospital in Oregon to earn a Top Workplace award. We are also fifth place among large companies in all industries.

The Oregonian's list of Top Workplaces includes the top 100 companies in Oregon and represents about 1 percent of the state's workforce. The rating is based on feedback directly from employees.

Employee comments published with the results of the survey show how our mission affects our employees and the care they provide. "I am valued and given freedom to perform," one employee reported.

A Benefit to Patients

Studies show happy health care employees create a better experience for their patients. And your best experience is what we strive for each and every day.

You benefit from employees who report things like "I am able to express my creativity in my job" and "I am encouraged to express my faith." One employee said he is able to demonstrate his values and ethics in his work, which can directly improve how you are treated and cared for.

From our medical center and clinics to our home care and hospice services, our Portland-area team members also reported the highest scores for work/life flexibility, according to the Top Workplaces survey.

The Best Talent

The Top Workplace rating also means we can attract and keep the best talent in health care. "After all," writes The Oregonian, "employees want to work at companies that operate by a strong set of values."

"The Oregonian confirmed what our team already knows," says Joyce Newmyer, Adventist Medical Center president and CEO. "The people and mission of Adventist Health make it one of the very best places to work."
