And Eight Makes a Charm …
In a year marked by unprecedented demands on the healthcare industry, RVNAhealth is especially proud to be recognized as a 2020 Top Workplace
For the 8th time since 2011, RVNAhealth has earned a Top Workplaces award from Hearst Connecticut Media. The award is given to local companies that lead the way in workplace culture based on employee surveys. At RVNAhealth, the employees surveyed include clinical staff -- nurses, rehabilitation therapists, and certified nursing assistants -- as well as non-medical caregivers and administrative staff. RVNAhealth places in the mid-sized company category which includes companies with between 100 and 999 employees.
“To receive this award today, in 2020, during an extraordinary year in which RVNAhealth has lived our mission every day, is especially gratifying,” says Theresa Santoro, MSN, RN, CHCA, President and CEO of RVNAhealth. “It reflects remarkably on our team’s depth of strength, commitment and purpose, and of their pride in the work that we do and the support they receive.”
Since COVID-19 arrived in mid-March, RVNAhealth has served over 175 COVID-positive patients in addition to offering their usual services. Team members across the board took on new responsibilities, assumed extra hours and personalized the welfare and well-being of every patient and family they cared for — often serving as the single connection between a patient and their loved ones. “It has been a year of great intensity,” says Santoro, “and it simply made our team stronger.”
The Top Workplaces designation was awarded to 49 Connecticut companies this year. To be considered, a company must be located in Fairfield, Litchfield, or New Haven County, have at least 35 employees, and be nominated for the award by a current employee. Company
