AVIA Recognized as a Top 25 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2016

October 11, 2016, CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–AVIA, the nation’s leading network for health systems seeking to innovate and transform, announced today that the company has been recognized as a Top 25 Best Places to Work in Healthcare for 2016 by Modern Healthcare. Now in its ninth year, the award program identifies the “best of the best” in outstanding healthcare employers nationwide and determines winners based solely on employee feedback.

“We are extremely proud of this achievement, our exceptional team members, and their personal contributions that led to AVIA being named as a best place to work in healthcare by Modern Healthcare,” said Eric Langshur, CEO and co-founder of AVIA. “We put a huge premium on building a culture and a place of excellence – one where the core principle is our commitment to purpose. At AVIA we feel compelled to contribute – to each other, to our members, to our partners, and to the healthcare industry. And I think this purpose helps us attract top talent who share our passion for transforming healthcare and dedication for leading the way.”

AVIA’s culture is built on high performance, deep collaboration, and wellbeing. AVIA’s devotion to its mission is mirrored in its commitment to employees, providing industry-leading benefits such as 100% employer-paid healthcare premiums, a 401(k) plan, and perks like onsite yoga, meditation, and gym. AVIA builds on this base layer by strongly emphasizing personal and professional development, and a shared passion for learning, community service, and wellness.

Making time for fun activities is a must at AVIA; employees regularly play kickball, enjoy “Thirsty Thursdays,” and celebrate nontraditional holidays like National Pie Day. AVIA’s commitment to balance stems from Langshur’s philosophy to excel with purpose without sacrificing overall wellbeing, which he wrote about in his New York Times Best Selling book, Start Here – Master the Lifelong Habit of Wellbeing.

“Building a workplace culture of engagement isn’t easy, especially in today’s high-stress healthcare environment, where every organization is under intense pressure to improve quality and safety while reducing costs,” said Merrill Goozner, editor of Modern Healthcare. “The firms honored as best places to work are leading the way to a better healthcare system.”
