Thursday, October 6, 2022

CHICAGO (October 6, 2022) – Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) has been ranked No. 3 among healthcare providers and insurers in Modern Healthcare’s 2022 Best Places to Work award program, moving up two spots from its 2021 ranking. The complete list of this year’s winner rankings is available at Modern Healthcare will publish a special supplement featuring the ranked list of all winners along with the October 3rd issue of MH magazine.

“Our employees have done a tremendous job assisting our community during this pandemic while maintaining the many programs and services BCHD provides,” said Tom Bakaly, CEO of BCHD. “Our organization has adapted to provide testing, then vaccines, and now, as we transition to an endemic stage, we are also emphasizing and providing mental health resources through new and established providers. Our employees will continue to make the community the priority.”
Modern Healthcare partnered with the Best Companies Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey. While this program has evolved over the years, its mission remains the same: recognizing workplaces that empower employees to provide patients and customers the best possible care, products and services.

As the healthcare industry sits squarely on the frontlines of this pandemic, the mission of the Best Places to Work program has only become more important. Healthcare leaders have proven that creating nurturing, supportive workplaces for their most valuable asset, their employees, is vital.

"Employees at healthcare organizations from all sectors of the industry have been the driving force behind the collaboration and effort that led the healthcare industry and the country through the unprecedented challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Fawn Lopez, publisher of Modern Healthcare. The tireless leaders at the organizations we honor with the 2022 Best Places to Work Awards have stood by their employees throughout an extremely challenging time and remained committed to humanizing the patient experience. They have built and nurtured supportive, engaging, flexible and fun workplaces that meet and exceed the needs of today’s workers. Their success is an inspiration and model for building a more productive, creative healthcare workforce and a better healthcare system in which patients are the ultimate beneficiaries.”

“We congratulate all of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare for their commitment to making a positive impact on the lives of their employees and the communities they serve,” said Lopez.

Beach Cities Health District was honored at the 2022 Best Places to Work Gala on Thursday, September 29. This is the tenth year BCHD has made the list.
