Forbes Names Dignity Health One of Nevada's Best-in-State Employers 2020

Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican recognized as a top ten Nevada employer and the only health care company named in the top 25

LAS VEGAS, August 27, 2020 – Dignity Health has been recognized as one of the top ten best employers in Nevada, as part of Forbes’ annual list of America’s Best-In-State Employers 2020. This prestigious recognition is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on August 24th, 2020 and can currently be viewed on the Forbes website.

“We are both proud and humbled by this distinction,” said Lawrence Barnard, President of Dignity Health Nevada and CEO of the Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican Siena Campus. “Being included as one of Nevada’s top ten best employers speaks volumes, not only about our company, but of our people and the way they execute our health care mission every day in our hospitals. Being the only health care organization listed among 25 major Nevada employers tells me one thing: Humankindness really does make a difference.” 

Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican is southern Nevada’s only not-for-profit, faith-based hospital system, operating three acute care hospitals in southern Nevada and employing 4,000 medical and health care professionals. 

Forbes and Statista selected America’s Best-in-State Employers based on an independent survey of approximately 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people in their U.S. operations. The surveys were administered using a series of online panels and provide a representative sample of the U.S. workforce. Direct and indirect employee recommendations were evaluated on a state level. The study assessed each company according to Atmosphere & Development, Company Image, Working Conditions, Salaries & Wages, and Diversity. 

Mr. Barnard added, “At Dignity Health-St. Rose Dominican we strive to continue the mission set forth more than seven decades ago when seven Adrian Dominican Sisters arrived and founded Rose de Lima Hospital in Henderson in 1947. It was their dedication to improving the health of this community that created the unique environment of compassionate care that our hospital continues to embody to this day. The people at the Siena, San Martín, and Rose de Lima hospital campuses, as well as our Wellness Centers, Surgical Centers, Medical Clinics and other facilities throughout the valley, deserve much of the credit for this recognition.”
