Scripps Health was named to Working Mother magazine's 2011 list of America's 100 Best Companies for family-friendly policies. The magazine ranked the top 100 companies for mommies by looking at seven key areas including workforce profile, benefits, child care and flexible work.
Scripps has made the list for the seven consecutive years and was listed as number 11 in this year's ranking. Working Mother cited Scripps' employee healthcare clinic, onsite fitness facilities and free, unlimited psychological counseling for employees as key reasons to making the respected list.
Earlier this month, Scripps was named by AARP as the top company int he U.S. for workers over 50.
"This has been a great week for us at Scripps. First we were singled out by AARP as the top employer in the country for workers over 50, and now we have been recognized as a 'Best Company' by Working Mother for our family-friendly programs and policies," said Chris Van Gorder, president and CEO of Scripps Health, in a statement. "By listening to and accommodating the needs of our staff, we ultimately are able to improve the quality of patient care and also make Scripps and award-winning place to work."
