Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Raked Among "100 Best Companies to Work For"

ATLANTA (January 20, 2011) – Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta has been ranked among FORTUNE magazine’s elite list of “100 Best Companies to Work For” in America.  It is the sixth consecutive time the not-for-profit pediatric health care system has been named to the list.  Landing at No. 60, Children’s is the only hospital in Georgia to appear on the list, and one of only three companies headquartered in Georgia. When broken down by size, Children’s placed 18th in the midsized company sub-category, and earned special recognition for being a top company for women, placing fourth in a sub-category for female employees. Additionally, Children’s placed in a sub-category recognizing diversity.

Children’s operates three hospital campuses, including Children’s at Egleston, Children’s at Hughes Spalding and Children’s at Scottish Rite, as well as 17 neighborhood locations.  Children’s puts a primary focus on employees, so it makes sense that the organization was ranked on a list that highlights specialty areas such as health care, child care and work-life balance. 

“Parents trust us to provide the best pediatric care possible and to help their children maintain good health and wellness.  Our commitment to making employees a top priority strengthens their dedication to Children’s and empowers them to continue to provide great care,” said Linda Matzigkeit, Senior Vice President, Strategic Planning and Human Resources at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. “Children’s works hard to remain a leader in offering all of its employees, from nurses to executives, a work environment in a growth industry that is challenging and mission-driven.”

Children’s constantly works to understand and deliver on its workforce's diverse needs, enabling employees to be successful and continue to serve the not-for-profit organization. In addition to traditional benefits, Children’s offers many unique programs, including a wellness program called Strong4Life through which employees collectively have lost more than 30,000 pounds since the program’s launch in June 2008.  Since 2009, Children’s began giving every employee who obtained a Strong4Life Health Assessment a discount on health care premiums.   And, the employee wellness program demonstrates Children’s commitment to wellness, supporting the organization’s 2011 statewide childhood obesity campaign.
