Northwell Health Named one of the Healthiest Workplaces in America

December 28, 2020

Northwell Health has been recognized as one of the Healthiest 100 Workplaces in America, a distinction given to organizations that prioritize the well-being of their employee populations.

Northwell Health placed 81st in the country and is being honored for a commitment to workplace wellness and exceptional health and benefits for healthcare professionals. Springbuk, a health intelligence software platform, names 100 organizations for this designation every year.

Northwell offers employees a wide range of resources to improve their health and physical well-being from yearly team step challenges, wellness workshops, weight management, breastfeeding support, emotional and spiritual well-being resources and the system’s Healthy Choice food recommendations.

Some of the benefits Northwell offers employees include: the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) team member vaccination program, diagnostic COVID-19 testing for employees and their family members, overnight virtual emergency care, child care benefits, fertility and surrogacy benefits, behavioral health navigation, seasonal affective disorder counseling as well as a confidential emotional support call center that operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“Our employees are on a mission to improve the lives of others, and the way to do that is to help them improve their own lives,” said Patricia Flynn, associate vice president for employee wellness at Northwell. “The Northwell Health commitment to employee well-being runs deep. This year we’ve doubled down on updating benefits and delivering wellness programs that take into account the current pandemic environment. The goal is to help our employees and their families become healthier by providing them with multiple wellness touch points that keep them engaged and can be incorporated into their daily routine.”

When compiling their list of healthiest employers, Springbuk evaluated workplaces across six key categories: Culture and leadership, foundational components, strategic planning, communication and marketing, programming and interventions and reporting and analytics.
