U.S. News and World Report recently released several lists of the best companies to work for in the U.S., including the best health care companies to work for. The 58 companies on the list include several health insurers, pharmaceutical companies, health technology companies and one health care system—HCA Healthcare in Nashville, Tennessee—according to Becker’s Hospital Review.

  • Pay and benefits
  • Work/life balance and flexibility
  • Job and company stability

Highlights from the U.S. Surgeon General’s warning on health worker burnout


  1. Dennis Carter DO

    I see many opportunities to work, but is it in the provision of direct patient care? I know of one that prevents care not enhances care. Routinely denies swing bed and skilled nursing services after the care is given and patient discharged. As a result many facilities will not accept patients covered by this entity. If looking for work you better look st their ethics as well

  2. Brian White

    The 58 top “health care” companies? Almost none of these actually provide healthcare, rather these are corporate entities that form the foundation of the medical-industrial complex and the total combined practicing physician numbers on these payrolls is near zero. Let’s focus on actual “healthcare” meaning the space where actual physicians take the time to think through and address the actual problems of actual patients. Let’s stop genuflecting to corporate behemoths who’s CEOs earn 8 figure salaries for their roll in squeezing blood from a stone.
