MIAMI, FL – September 19, 2019 – Great Place to Work® and FORTUNE have named Baptist Health South Florida one of the country’s Best Workplaces for Women, an honor recognizing organizations that provide the resources and support women need to thrive and grow at work. Baptist Health ranked #29 on the prestigious list.
To compile the rankings, Great Place to Work analyzed anonymous survey feedback from more than 4.6 million employees at Great Place to Work-Certified™ organizations in all sectors of the economy. The survey measured women’s assessments of their company’s culture, leadership, fairness, transparency, advancement opportunities and other elements of a great workplace. Companies named to the Best Workplaces for Women list also had a strong representation of women in their overall workforce and in management, compared to industry standards.
“We are an organization with a fundamental culture of caring. It’s how we treat everyone around us—our patients and families, the communities we serve and our dedicated employees who uphold our mission and vision and sustain our culture,” said Adriene McCoy, senior vice president and chief human resources officer of Baptist Health South Florida. “Our commitment to supporting our employees’ personal and professional growth and development is just one way we create a great workplace for all.”
Research from Great Place to Work has shown that women who say they make a difference at their organizations are 27 times more likely to describe their companies as great places to work. The Best Workplaces for Women set themselves apart from competitors by creating positive experiences for women and empowering them to reach their full human potential, no matter who they are or what they do.

Bush, chief executive officer of Great Place to Work. “Organizations like Baptist Health South Florida know that creating a great workplace where everyone can succeed regardless of gender is not just the right thing to do, but a must-do if you want to be the very best of everything in the marketplace.”
