BENNINGTON, Vt. — Southwestern Vermont Health Care has been named by Becker's Healthcare, publisher of Becker's Hospital Review, to the 2018 list of "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare" for the third year running. It is the only Vermont company on the list.

"SVHC's team-oriented approach allows for ample learning, development, and career growth with the goal of keeping every employee engaged," said Polly Cipperly, director of Human Resources. "These factors, plus competitive pay and great benefits, have attracted the attention of Becker's and other employer recognition organizations."

The editors of Becker's, one of the industry’s most influential sources of news for hospital leaders, consider health institutions for the Great Places to Work in Healthcare list based on several factors, including whether the organization has received national, state, or local recognition for workplace excellence; benefits offerings; wellness initiatives; and efforts to improve professional development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance, and a sense of community among employees.

"We are grateful for the review and commendation that Becker's provides," Cipperly said. "SVHC is a values-driven organization and a rewarding place to work. This recognition helps us share that with our regional community."

The list features both U.S. healthcare provider organizations and other types of healthcare-specific companies. It has been published every year since 2011. Organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list.

Earlier this year, Thomas A. Dee, SVHC's president and CEO, was listed on Becker’s List of "50 Rural Hospital CEOs to Know." In addition, SVHC has been named by Vermont Business Magazine and the Vermont Chamber of Commerce as one of Vermont’s Best Places to Work for four years in a row.
