HUNTSVILLE – When it comes to healthy work environments, Forbes just named the Huntsville Hospital Health System as one of only two North Alabama-based companies ranked among the nation’s best employers.
Among health care providers with headquarters in Alabama, only Infirmary Health of Mobile and the Alabama Department of Public Health ranked higher than Huntsville Hospital Health System. Also, one North Alabama-based business, Huntsville engineering and support services firm COLSA, made the Forbes list.
Huntsville Hospital was one of 13 Alabama-based entities to make the list along with Hoover City Schools, Auburn University, the University of Alabama, the University of Alabama in Birmingham, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama, Regions Bank and Alfa Insurance.
For its America’s Best Employers by State 2022 rankings, Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to survey 70,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees.
The surveys were conducted anonymously, allowing participants to freely share their opinions, Forbes said.
“We are honored to be recognized by Forbes as one of the best employers in Alabama,” said Jeff Samz, CEO of HHHS. “It starts with hiring great people who believe in our mission of improving lives and supporting them with the resources they need to excel.”
Established in 1895, Huntsville Hospital is the flagship campus of the not-for-profit Huntsville Hospital Health System, which includes Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children, Madison Hospital, Athens-Limestone Hospital, Decatur Morgan Hospital, Helen Keller Hospital in Sheffield, Red Bay Hospital in Franklin County, Marshall Medical Centers in Marshall County, Highlands Medical Center in Scottsboro and Lincoln Health System in Fayetteville, Tenn.
With 2,300 patient beds and nearly 17,000 staff members, the system is among the largest employers in North Alabama.
