Downers Grove, IL & Milwaukee, WI — Advocate Aurora Health, one of the largest not-for-profit, integrated health care systems in the nation, has earned the 2021 Top Workplaces USA award.
This brand new, national award is based solely on the feedback through team member surveys surrounding business outcomes, leadership, culture drivers, organization basics, health care and diversity, equity and inclusion. Advocate Aurora is the only health system in Illinois and Wisconsin to receive the recognition.
“During a year we will never forget, our team members proved to be the true heroes of 2020 by always putting their patients, communities and colleagues first,” said Advocate Aurora Health President and CEO Jim Skogsbergh. “Our gratitude is endless for the 75,000 physicians, nurses and team members whose expertise and compassion helps people live well. Their dedication is what brings our purpose to life.”
Previously, Advocate Aurora Health has received four regional Top Workplace recognitions since Advocate Health Care and Aurora Health Care merged in April 2018. Advocate is a previous six-time winner of the Chicago Tribune accolade, and Aurora is an eight-time winner of the Top Workplace recognition by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
