“With the job market becoming ever more competitive and prospective employees valuing companies’ commitment to diversity, being able to attract and retain a diverse workforce gives us a competitive advantage over other healthcare systems,” CarePoint President and CEO Dr. Achintya Moulick said in a statement.
“Our employees mirror the make-up of the patient population that we serve, and that not only helps us foster a more inclusive workplace environment but also makes our patients feel more comfortable and welcome.”
CarePoint Health was one out of only three hospital systems in New Jersey that made the list, which also includes competitor RWJBarnabas Health.
“CarePoint Health’s commitment to a diverse workplace is part of its dedication to serving our local communities in Hudson County and the surrounding areas,” added CarePoint Vice President of Marketing, Strategy and Patient Experience Justin Drew.
“Workplaces should represent the populations they serve and CarePoint Health has taken that philosophy to heart. With a large multi-cultural patient population, mostly based in Hudson County, the health-system prioritizes the celebration of the many different backgrounds that their employees and patients represent.”
78 industries, 223,000 employees and 1.5 million in-depth company evaluations were represented in the study.
Each industry was then broken down by size and featured many other well known companies such as A+E Networks, Boeing, SurveyMonkey and many others.

Earlier this month, CarePoint, who owns the Bayonne Medical Center, Hoboken University Medical Center, and Christ Hospital in Jersey City, announced a planned team up with Hudson Regional Hospital in Secaucus to form Hudson Health System.
However, the New Jersey Department of Health, who would have to approve the partnership, sent notice on the same day indicating that a financial monitor was appointed to CarePoint’s three hospitals, therefore what comes next remains unclear at this time.
