America's best hospitals to work for, by state

Forbes' fifth annual list of America's Best Employers By State contains a number of health systems and acute-care hospitals, with more than a dozen recognized in Illinois, Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania. 

Forbes and Statista surveyed more than 70,000 workers at companies in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Participants evaluated their employer based on working conditions, compensation, diversity, potential for advancement and were asked if they would recommend their employer to others. Companies pay no fee to participate.

Below, find recognized acute care hospitals or health systems that include acute care hospitals, organized by state. Please note that some regional or national health systems are headquartered in states outside of those they earned recognition in. States that do not have recognized health systems are not listed below.
