SVHC Named One of Vermont’s Best Places to Work for the Sixth Year in a Row

BENNINGTON—February 4, 2020—Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) has been named one of the 2020’s Best Places to Work for the sixth year in a row. SVHC received the honor for the first time in 2015. It remains the only hospital in the state of Vermont to be recognized by the awards program.

“The employees of SVHC are empowered to deliver on our mission—exceptional care and comfort—for every patient, every day,” said Thomas A. Dee, FACHE, president and chief executive officer of SVHC. “Through commitment and teamwork, they contribute to tremendous achievements in every area of our health system and build rewarding and meaningful careers.”

This statewide program is presented by Vermont Business Magazine in partnership with the Society for Human Resource Management, Vermont State Council, (SHRM); the Vermont Department of Commerce and Community Development; and Best Companies Group. The program surveys and identifies the best places of employment to recognize organizations that benefit the state’s economy, its workforce, and businesses. 

In the recent past, SVHC has earned several other prominent distinctions, including appearing on Becker’s Hospital Review’s national list of the “Top 150 Places to Work in Healthcare” since 2016. In October 2019, Centers for Living and Rehabilitation, SVHC’s skilled nursing facility, earned a deficiency-free rating from Vermont regulators, and in November 2019, Southwestern Vermont Medical Center earned an ‘A’ for hospital safety from the Leapfrog Group. In 2017, the hospital received the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s top honor, the Magnet Prize.

The final rankings for each category of the Best Places to Work in Vermont awards will be announced at a special awards presentation in March 2020. For more information on the Best Places to Work in Vermont program, visit
