Northwell Health has been recognized by Press Ganey for its top-notch employee engagement scores and high-quality patient experience at three facilities.

Northwell Health was one of 10 health systems in the country to receive the Pinnacle of Excellence in employee engagement. This achievement commemorates Northwell Health’s employee surveys from January 2017 through January 2019. Northwell Health has seen a 90 percent response rate to employee engagement surveys from its 70,000 employees, which ranks the health system in the 25 percent by Press Ganey. This result is consistent with Northwell being certified as a best place to work through the Great Place to Work Institute.

“It is a great honor to be recognized for all of our team member engagement efforts by Press Ganey,” said Joseph Moscola, chief people officer at Northwell Health. “We take our team members’ feedback very seriously and implement as much of it as we can. It has been great to see Northwell Health steadily build a culture where our team members know that we take their opinions about where they work to heart and provide a top-tier working environment.”

Cohen Children’s Medical Center’s ambulatory surgery and pre-surgical testing team was recognized as the 2019 Pediatric Excellence Award winner for the group’s dedication to providing extraordinary care to its patients and families.

In addition, both the Northwell Health Physician Partners at Smithtown and Phelps Hospital’s radiation medicine department received Guardian of Excellence awards for their high patient experience scores. Both facilities achieved in the 95 percentile or higher in their likelihood to recommend category.

“My sincerest congratulations to these two office locations for their dedication in providing the best patient experience possible as recognized by Press Ganey,” said Ira Nash, executive director of Northwell Health Physician Partners.

Northwell Health Physician Partners doctors provide care in hundreds of facilities throughout New York City and across Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester counties. This integrated group of Northwell Health physicians has expertise in more than 100 specialties and works together as a medical group harnessing the health system’s resources and research to bring the most current advances to patients.
