SVHC Named One of Becker's 150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare

BENNINGTON, VT—July 2, 2019—Southwestern Vermont Health Care (SVHC) has been named by Becker's Healthcare—publisher of Becker’s Hospital Review, one of the industry’s most influential sources of news for hospital leaders—to the 2019 list of "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” for the fourth year running. It is the only Vermont company on the list.

“SVHC really cares about being a place where employees thrive both professionally and personally,” said Polly Cipperly, director of Human Resources. “These factors, plus competitive pay and great benefits, have attracted the attention of Becker’s and other employer recognition organizations.”

The editors of Becker’s consider health institutions for the Great Places to Work in Healthcare list based on several factors, including whether the organization has received national, state, or local recognition for workplace excellence; benefits offerings; wellness initiatives; and efforts to improve professional development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance, and a sense of community among employees.

“SVHC is a values-driven organization and a rewarding place to work,” Cipperly noted. “We are grateful for the review and commendation that Becker’s provides, because it helps us share our qualities as a great place to work with job seekers and with our community.”

The list features both U.S. healthcare provider organizations and other types of healthcare-specific companies. It has been published every year since 2011. Organizations cannot pay for inclusion on this list.

Becker's Hospital Review is a monthly publication offering up-to-date business and legal news and analysis relating to hospitals and health systems. Each issue reaches more than 18,000 hospital leaders. The Becker’s complete list can be viewed at To view open positions at SVHC, job seekers may visit
