Charleston, W.Va. – American Medical Facilities Management (AMFM) joined an elite list of long-term care providers in the first-ever “Best Workplaces” for Aging Services list. AMFM ranks 24th on the list of 50 health care providers in the aging sector. Overall, skilled nursing and long-term care providers occupied six of the top 40 spots.

“To be on this list with so many other talented and great health care organizations is a testament to the care, compassion and dedication to our mission of providing care,” said John Elliot, owner and founder of AMFM. “Thank you to our teams in each center for their feedback and helping us achieve this incredible recognition.”

In the United States, Great Place to Work® (GPTW) produces the annual Fortune "100 Best Companies to Work For®" list and a series of Great Place to Work® Best Workplaces lists including lists for Millennials, Women, Diversity, Small and Medium Companies and over a half dozen different industry lists.

In 2017 McKnight’s announced long-term care, senior living and home care would be included in the consumer-media giant’s array of “Best Workplaces” lists. Fortune’s research partner GPTW analyzed results from more than 162,000 employees in creating its first Aging Services certification and recognition lists.

GPTW evaluated more than 50 elements of team members’ experience on the job. These included the extent to which employees trust leaders, the respect with which people are treated, the fairness of workplace decisions, and how much camaraderie there is among the team. Rankings are based on employees’ feedback and reward companies who best include all employees, no matter who they are or what they do for the organization.

In June, AMFM Nursing & Rehabilitation Centers were certified as a great workplace. This certification qualified AMFM for the “Best Workplaces” for Aging Services list.

“In the challenging and competitive health care field we are honored and excited to have received this certification and ranking based on our team members’ feedback,” said Crystal Weaver Smarr, vice president of human resources for AMFM.

“According to our study, 88 percent of AMFM employees say it is a great workplace,” says Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Vice President of Great Place to Work Certification & List Production. AMFM employees completed 689 surveys, resulting in a 90 percent confidence level and a margin of error of ± 2.21.
