Meridian Health Ranked One of the Top 10 "Best Places To Work" in New Jersey


Neptune, NJ - Meridian Health was recently named one of the Best Places to Work in New Jersey by NJBIZ Magazine for the sixth consecutive year. For the second time, Meridian Health was ranked within the top ten for this prestigious award. The annual ranking is determined by an evaluation of an organization’s policies, benefits, and practices, as well as an extensive survey of its team members on their perception of the workplace.

The Best Places to Work in New Jersey program is open to all publicly or privately held organizations and both for-profits and not-for-profits, provided the facility has more than 25 employees. The ranking’s top 55 are divided into two categories based on the number of employees. Meridian was ranked ninth among the large company category (250 employees or more), moving up seven places from last year’s position.

“As the largest employer in Monmouth and Ocean Counties, Meridian Health constantly strives to ensure that each individual team member truly feels we are a workplace of choice,” says John E. Sindoni, SPHR, senior vice president of Human Resources at Meridian Health. “It is our priority to ensure we maintain trust, teamwork, and a shared vision throughout Meridian, so our team members can provide the best health care experience to our patients and guests each and every day.”

Meridian Health was recognized and honored at the Best Places to Work in New Jersey Awards Ceremony on April 22, where final rankings were revealed.

In addition to being ranked among the Best Places to Work in New Jersey, Meridian Health has also been named among FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies to Work For”, and has been named New Jersey’s Outstanding Employer of the Year in 2003 and 2009.

Meridian Health is a leading not-for-profit health care organization in New Jersey, comprising Jersey Shore University Medical Center, Ocean Medical Center, Riverview Medical Center, Southern Ocean County Hospital, K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital, and Meridian Partner Companies that include home health services, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers, ambulatory care, ambulance services, and outpatient centers. Meridian Health has consistently been rated among the top performing health systems in New Jersey for clinical quality, is one of FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies to Work For”, and is the recipient of numerous state and national recognitions for patient care and nursing excellence, including the distinction of being the first health system in the country to receive Magnet designation for nursing excellence by the American Nurses Credentialing Center, a distinction earned by less than 3% of hospitals nationwide.
