Honored for Excellence

Gaithersburg, MD - Adventist HealthCare, has been honored as one of America’s Best-In-State Employers 2020, by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

The award comes as Adventist HealthCare navigates COVID-19, ensuring a safe and stable working environment for its 6,500 team members, many of whom have been on the front lines of the pandemic. While COVID-19 has taken an economic toll on the healthcare industry, Adventist HealthCare has retained its full workforce and enhanced programs to support the emotional and financial well-being of its team members during these challenging times.

The recognition falls in line with a key Adventist HealthCare organizational goal of being the "Best Place to Work and Grow."

"This award recognizes the dedication, care and compassion that each one of our team members extends not only to our patients, but to each other as well," says Brendan Johnson, Adventist HealthCare senior vice president for Human Resources. "This is a significant step forward in our journey to extend world-class healing to all in our community and an award that every one of our team members can feel proud of," adds Terry Forde, president and CEO of Adventist HealthCare.

The Forbes and Statista America’s Best-in-State Employers award is based on an independent survey of approximately 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. Direct and indirect employee recommendations were evaluated on a state level. The study assessed each company according to Atmosphere & Development, Company Image, Working Conditions, Salaries & Wages, and Diversity.

Adventist HealthCare offers a full range of health and wellness services to the community including acute hospital care, rehabilitation, mental and behavioral health services, home care, health education, a physician network and wellness services for businesses. Based in Gaithersburg, Maryland, Adventist HealthCare is one of the largest employers in Maryland, with approximately 5,500 employees. Our mission is to extend God’s care through the ministry of physical, mental and spiritual healing.
