For the 9th time since 2011, RVNAhealth has been recognized by Hearst Connecticut Media as a Top Workplaces Award. The award is given to local companies that, based on employee surveys, play a pioneering role in workplace culture. RVNAhealth employees surveyed include clinical staff – nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and certified nursing assistants – as well as non-medical nursing and administrative staff. RVNAhealth places itself in the category of medium-sized companies, which includes companies with 100 to 999 employees.
“2021 marks the first year of RVNAhealth as a ‘Tri-Agency’ – following our merger in November 2020 with the Bethel Visiting Nurse Association and New Milford Visiting Nurse & Hospice,” says Theresa Santoro, MSN, RN, CHCA, President and CEO of RVNAhealth. “The joint presentation of this award confirms the strength of the union and the depth of our commitment to our work and the patients and communities we serve. Every year RVNAhealth faces new challenges and triumphs in the healthcare sector and it is always a great pleasure to receive the Top Workplaces Award. It is a pleasure to work with such a talented and empathetic team. “
The Top Workplaces award was presented to 56 Connecticut companies this year. To be considered, a company must be based in Fairfield, Litchfield, or New Haven Counties, have at least 35 employees, and be nominated for the award by a current employee. The company’s employees then fill out a survey about their organization, whereupon the results are tabulated and prizes are awarded.
RVNAhealth was also named Hearst Connecticut Media Top Workplace in 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. In addition to a task-oriented, rewarding workplace, RVNAhealth employees receive a wide range of benefits, including: health and dental insurance, company life insurance, old-age provision with generous contribution subsidies, flexible work arrangements, training and further education, agency laptops and cell phones.
