One of America’s Best Places to Work

Anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the only Illinois hospital on the National Honor Roll for 12 straight years, Northwestern Medicine's integrated, academic health system is in relentless pursuit of better medicine.

Northwestern Medicine has been recognized for three consecutive years on the Becker’s Hospital Review “150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare” list. We were recognized for providing robust work/life support that includes career development and advancement, a competitive benefits package, health and wellness programming, on-site child care, flexible schedules and a rich organizational culture.

Forbes ranked Northwestern Medicine No. 14 on its 2023 list of America’s Best Large Employers. The ranking was based on survey responses from employees of large companies who were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family, and to nominate organizations other than their own.

To earn national recognition, hospitals and health systems must show ongoing evidence of clinical excellence. Northwestern Medicine meets the challenge and consistently places among the best in the nation for patient satisfaction and quality of care.
