Glens Falls Hospital Recognized by Forbes as a Best in State Employer

Glens Falls Hospital has been recognized on the Forbes list of Best-In-State Employers 2021 as one of the best places to work in New York. This prestigious award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.

America’s Best-In-State Employers 2021 were identified in an independent survey based on a vast sample of approximately 80,000 Americans working for companies with more than 500 employees in the USA. Across 25 industry sectors, 1,329 employer brands were ranked among the top employers. Brands were able to win in more than one state.

The evaluation was based on direct and indirect recommendations from employees who were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their own employers to friends and family. Employees were also asked to evaluate other employers in their respective industry and state that stood out either positively or negatively.

Glens Falls Hospital is the only hospital in the Capital Region to achieve this award and was ranked number 12 among all hospitals in NY State.
