It also analyzed demographic patterns to ensure they were creating great workplaces for all employees, regardless of who they are or what they do for the organization.

“We believe employee engagement is a key pillar to our overall commitment to excellence in patient care, research, education and community service,” said Dr. Laura L. Forese, executive vice president and chief operating officer of NewYork-Presbyterian. “We constantly strive to evaluate and improve efforts to promote professional development, diversity and inclusion, work-life balance and a sense of community among our workforce.”
