"This award reflects our core value of maintaining a remarkable company culture," said Brad Weinert, chief operating officer and president at Awarepoint. "Being recognized for the third year in a row is an honor and we have been fortunate to attract and retain exceptionally intelligent and engaged employees."

Modern Healthcare partnered with Best Companies Group, a PA-based firm that administers 'best places to work' programs nationwide. Open to all healthcare related companies (providers, suppliers, payers, associations, etc.) with at least 25 employees, the program collected information from both employers and employees.

Employers completed a survey detailing company policies, practices, benefits and demographics. Employees were asked an in-depth set of questions that resulted in an analysis in 8 core areas: leadership and planning, culture and communications, role satisfaction, working environment, relationship with supervisor, training and development, pay and benefits and overall satisfaction.

"All of us at Awarepoint are so proud of our continued high level of employee engagement and satisfaction," said Valerie Fritz, senior vice president of marketing at Awarepoint. "As Awarepoint grows and scales, we continue to recognize that our employees are our most valuable assets. Collectively we continue to do many of the right things and truly know how fortunate we are to work for Awarepoint."

Modern Healthcare will reveal the ranked order of the 100 Best Places to Work in Healthcare at a banquet honoring the recipients on October 18, 2010 and in a special supplement to be published on October 25, 2010. Awarepoint ranked #8 in the Modern Healthcare 2009 Best Places to Work and #8 in the Modern Healthcare 2008 Best Places to Work.
