DiversityInc ranks UH high for work/life benefits

CLEVELAND – DiversityInc., a leading publication on diversity and business, has recognized University Hospitals (UH) as a leader among health care institutions in its third annual Top Hospital Systems listing. UH, which has appeared on the list every year, was ranked second in the nation for its continued commitment to diversity, organizational communications and supplier diversity program.

Each year since 2001, DiversityInc has ranked the Top 50 Companies for Diversity based on results from an extensive questionnaire. In 2010, DiversityInc began a separate ranking for hospital systems.

UH was selected for this honor based on its excellent ratings in four categories: CEO commitment, workforce, corporate and organizational communications and supplier diversity. DiversityInc specifically highlighted UH’s work/life benefits including adoption assistance, paternity leave, lactation programs and onsite religious accommodations.

“We strongly believe that the diversity of our workplace should mirror the diversity in the communities we serve,” said Thomas F. Zenty III, UH’s Chief Executive Officer. “And, we recognize that diversity throughout our system is essential in order to achieve our most critical goal: Providing the highest quality of care for our patients.”

Among the other health care system ranked by DiversityInc are Henry Ford Health System, Mayo Clinic, and Massachusetts General Hospital.

DiversityInc was founded in 1998. DiversityInc.com has the largest dedicated career center for diverse professionals, and a core part of its business is benchmarking companies against its DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity® data.
