Rhode Island Hospital was named among the top 25 best hospitals to work for in the United States by HealthExecNews. Of the 6,000 registered hospitals in the U.S., this honor recognizes Rhode Island Hospital’s commitment to providing employees with exceptional benefits and opportunities.
“I’m pleased to see Rhode Island Hospital recognized for its dedication, not only to patients, but to our employees,” said Timothy J. Babineau, M.D., president and chief executive officer of Rhode Island Hospital and The Miriam Hospital. “Our health and well-being initiatives and professional development opportunities provide our employees with the tools they need to be happier and healthier, and to work better together.”
HealthExecNews rates hospitals on metrics such as opportunities for professional development, exceptional benefits, compensation, activities, efficient workflow and employee satisfaction.
Rhode Island Hospital was selected for unique benefits such as “Lunch and Learn” sessions on topics covering everything from gardening to college planning; health and wellness programs; flexible work arrangements; the Employee Fund, which provides financial assistance to employees when an unexpected catastrophic event (like a fire or life-threatening child illness) has left them with nowhere else to turn.
“At Rhode Island Hospital, we pride ourselves on providing our employees with good paying jobs, great benefits and unique perks,” said Louis J. Sperling, vice president of human resources. “Whether it’s through improved availability of wellness programs such as Weight Watchers at Work, or discounted tickets to Six Flags amusement park or a baseball game, we are continuously looking for ways to help our employees maintain a healthy work-life balance.”
