Fortune Magazine revealed its first-ever list of Best Places to Work in Aging Services, bestowing top honors on the Gurwin Family of Healthcare Services in Commack, NY. Gurwin was ranked No. 1 out of 50 organizations throughout the country that provide services to the frail and elderly. It is the second prestigious accolade the organization has won in recent months from Fortune Magazine. This summer, Gurwin was named one of the top 25 Best Places to Work in New York among small- and medium-size workplaces.
The esteemed honors stem from polling data gathered by the Great Place to Work Institute, an independent research and consulting firm. Employees from across the Gurwin healthcare continuum participated in the institute’s staff satisfaction survey, including the Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Gurwin Jewish Fay J. Lindner Residences assisted-living community, Gurwin Certified Home Health Agency, and Gurwin Adult Day Care Programs.
According to the survey data, 98 percent of Gurwin employees who participated reported they were proud to work at Gurwin, noting that the organization provides a “great atmosphere” in which to work and “great bosses.” Gurwin was also lauded for “great challenges and communication.”
“We are delighted to be recognized with this endorsement of the Gurwin organization by a national and highly regarded publication such as Fortune Magazine,” said Stuart B. Almer, president and chief executive officer. “We fully appreciate the challenges inherent in the work our employees do on a daily basis for those who turn to Gurwin for care, which is why we work diligently to create an enriching environment that supports and rewards our employees.”
