The UVM Health Network Ranked #1 in Vermont: Forbes’ Annual Best Employers by State list, 2023
Published Sept. 14, 2023

The UVM Health Network is thrilled to announce that we have achieved a significant milestone on behalf of our health network and employee community. Forbes recently released its 2023 'America's Best Employers by State' list. Among the five Vermont-based organizations listed in varying industries and categories, Forbes ranked UVMHN the #1 ‘Best Employer’ in Vermont this year.


Forbes releases a 'Best Employers by State' list annually. According to a recent survey from the Pew Research Center, only about half of U.S. workers report being "extremely" or "very satisfied" with their jobs. This list aims to provide workers who are "less than satisfied" with their employer – or people considering a career switch entirely – with a list of quality employers and better career options within their home state.


To compile the 'America's Best Employers by State' list, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to administer surveys to over 70,000 workers, all currently at organizations with a minimum of 500 employees throughout the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. The employee survey remained anonymous to encourage authenticity and candor in their responses. Respondents from each state reported whether they would recommend their current employer to others. Employees evaluated their employers based on the following criteria: working conditions, diversity, compensation packages, potential for development, company image and more.


As the national workforce shortage continues to impact health care organizations worldwide, The University of Vermont Health Network could not be more proud of our entire staff for their vital roles in helping UVMHN rank #1 as a ‘Best Employer’ in Vermont. Congratulations to our employee community for making UVMHN the supportive and excellent work environment it is renowned for today. 


“I am incredibly proud to see our organization get this national recognition, because it is based on feedback from our own people,” said Sunny Eappen, MD, MBA, President and Chief Operating Officer of the UVM Health Network. “We know the vital contribution every one of our employees in Vermont and New York makes every day to provide the highest quality patient care, and with this news we reaffirm our commitment to the ongoing process of making this health system the best place to work.”


Thank you to our hard-working teams of clinical and non-clinical health care professionals throughout our Network’s facilities, who continue to inspire us. Our employees’ compassion and commitment to providing top-quality care for our patients and each other is a testament to our #1 ranking as Vermont's leading health care network.
