Bronson Healthcare Named to Forbes 2022 list of America’s Best Employers

Forbes recently released its 2022 "America's Best-In-State Employers" list. In Michigan, Bronson Healthcare is the 4th highest ranking employer among hospitals and health systems and is ranked 39th overall across all employer categories and industries in the state.

Bronson Healthcare, headquartered in Kalamazoo, is the largest employer and leading healthcare system in southwest Michigan. With 8,600 employees and more than 1,500 medical staff members, it offers a full range of services from primary care to critical care across more than 100 locations. Key member organizations include Bronson Methodist Hospital, Bronson Battle Creek Hospital, Bronson LakeView Hospital, Bronson South Haven Hospital, Bronson Medical Group, Bronson at Home, Bronson Commons, Bronson Athletic Club, Bronson Wellness Center and the Bronson Health Foundation. 

Bill Manns, Bronson Healthcare President and CEO, says, “I always say there is no place I’d rather be and this recognition by Forbes indicates that is also true for the many talented people in our workforce across southwest Michigan.  It is quite an honor to see the Positivity of our culture and investment in our people reflected back through such a high recommendation of Bronson as a great place to work.”

Forbes, in collaboration with market research company Statista, surveyed 70,000 employees working for businesses with more than 500 employees across the country. All the surveys were anonymous, allowing participants to openly share their opinions and rate their employers on a variety of criteria, including the safety of the work environment, the competitiveness of compensation, opportunities for advancement, and openness to telecommuting. Statista then asked respondents how likely they’d be to recommend their employer to others, and to nominate organizations in industries outside their own.

A total of 1,382 U.S. employers from varying industries rose to the top in the 2022 survey, including 262 hospitals and health systems. The final list was divided into 51 groupings—one for each of the 50 states, plus the District of Columbia. The number of businesses ranked in each state was dependent on two factors—the number of qualifying employers and the size of the state’s workforce—and those with operations in more than one state had the opportunity to be listed multiple times.  

Fair pay, safe working conditions, inclusive culture, remote work benefits and initiatives around diversity, equity and inclusion were among Forbes' criteria. Read more about the methodology here.
