TRINITAS NAMED A GREAT PLACE TO WORK IN HEALTHCARE
TRMC one of only 86 US hospitals named to Becker's Hospital Review List
Trinitas Regional Medical Center, an acute care hospital with 554 beds that serves the City of Elizabeth and its communities in Central New Jersey, is among a select group of 86 hospitals across the nation chosen as one of the 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare for 2016 by Becker Healthcare based in Chicago. The highly-respected list has just been released in Becker's Healthcare monthly publication, Becker's Hospital Review. Trinitas is listed among nationally-recognized hospitals and medical centers such as the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, and Mass General.
To qualify for the Great Place to Work in Healthcare list, Becker Healthcare considers organizations that have received national, state or local recognition in workplace excellence, noteworthy employee benefits offerings, wellness initiatives, efforts to improve professional development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance, and have fostered a sense of community among employees. "Trinitas is pleased and extremely proud to be on the Becker Healthcare 2016 list and identified as an exemplary hospital among others in the US," says Gary S. Horan, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Trinitas has impressive credentials in the areas that Becker's Hospital Review uses to evaluate and select organizations for its list. In workplace excellence alone, our 2,800 employees have helped us to earn several "Best Places to Work Awards" from NJBIZ. In terms of the level of care that we offer, Trinitas has been named a Castle Connolly Top Hospital in its eligible service areas for three years running."
Mr. Horan further notes that Trinitas has launched numerous wellness initiatives for employees to encourage healthy lifestyles. For its promotion of heart health, Trinitas has earned the Fit Friendly Award from the American Heart Association for four consecutive years, first at the Gold level and then Platinum. It has also received multiple CEO Cancer Gold Standard accreditations for its overall promotion of healthy lifestyles to prevent cancer. The Renal Services Department holds regional 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program status from Quality Network Insights which places it in the top 20% of dialysis centers in New Jersey. An on-site fitness center offers employee discounts and supervised fitness training. Small group smoking cessation classes provide assistance and encouragement for interested employees. For the period 2015–2020, the National League for Nursing has designated Trinitas for a third time as a Center of Excellence in Nursing Education for "Creating Environments that Enhance Student Learning and Professional Development."
In health information management, Trinitas has been named a "Most Wired Hospital" three times by Hospitals and Healthcare Network for reaching Stage 6 in the adoption of electronic records. Trinitas is among only 16.5% of hospitals nationally to have achieved this level and one of only 16 New Jersey healthcare institutions to achieve this status.
"All of these awards and recognitions attest to Trinitas being highly qualified to hold a place on the Becker Healthcare 2016 Great Place to Work in Healthcare list," concludes Mr. Horan.
Published since 2011, Becker's Hospital Review list features hospitals, health systems, and ambulatory surgical centers and home health agencies, as well as healthcare consulting firms, health IT vendors, medical societies and more.
