Fortune Magazine revealed last week its first-ever list of Best Places to Work in Aging Services, bestowing top honors on the Gurwin Family of Healthcare Services in Commack.
Gurwin was ranked No. 1 out of 50 organizations nationwide that provide services to the
frail and elderly. The honors stem from polling data gathered by the Great Place to Work Institute, an independent research and consulting firm.
“We fully appreciate the challenges inherent in the work our employees do on a daily basis for those who turn to Gurwin for care, which is why we work diligently to create an enriching environment that supports and rewards our employees,” said Stuart B. Almer, President and Chief Executive Officer. “From a generous benefit package and competitive salaries, to smaller, more personal gestures such as employee appreciation barbeques, complimentary chair massages, team-building exercises and spirit day celebrations, our goal is to attract and retain the best talent to provide the highest quality of care for the more than 1,000 people we serve each day.”
This is the second time Fortune honored Gurwin in recent months. Earlier this summer, Fortune named Gurwin one of the top 25 Best Places to Work in New York among small- and medium-size workplaces.
According to the survey data, 98 percent of Gurwin employees who participated reported they were proud to work at Gurwin, noting that the organization provides a “great atmosphere” in which to work and “great bosses.” Gurwin was also lauded for “great challenges and communication.”
The Gurwin healthcare continuum includes the Gurwin Jewish Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, Gurwin Jewish Fay J. Lindner Residences assisted living community, Gurwin Certified Home Health Agency and Gurwin Adult Day Care Programs, all located on a 34-acre campus in Commack.
