The Center for Health Affairs has a storied tradition, dating back over 100 years, based around advocacy, dedication and service to our members and clients. Today, The Center advocates on behalf of 36 hospitals in nine counties in Northeast Ohio and serves these organizations and thousands of others across the country through our affiliates, CHAMPS Group Purchasing and The Essentials Group.
Together, The Center and its affiliates work as ONE organization, striving to achieve our core values of diversity, honor, commitment, authenticity, caring and innovation. We are a mission-driven organization aiming to be conveners, influencers, innovators and ultimately the catalyst for transforming healthcare in Northeast Ohio and across the U.S.
As a recipient of Modern Healthcare’s 2021 Best Places to Work in Healthcare recognition, The Center acknowledges that we are only as good as our people – without them, we wouldn’t be able to serve our member hospitals locally and clients nationally. We remain dedicated to fostering an inclusive, positive and rewarding workplace culture, one that provides flexibility, generous benefits and ultimately inspires our workforce to change Northeast Ohio and our country for the better.
“Being named as one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare is a great recognition of the dedicated work by our employees to live up to our mission, vision and values,” said The Center’s President & CEO Brian Lane. “During a challenging year for the healthcare profession, our organization prioritized the needs of our employees while striving to do everything we could to assist our members as they cared for patients, supported their own staff and led our communities through the pandemic. We are looking forward to continuing our work as we inch closer to a post-pandemic world.”
As part of our commitment to our passionate and dedicated employees, we offer:
- Competitive compensation and an excellent benefits package, including 100% employer-paid life insurance.
- Opportunities for professional training and development, including education reimbursement and on-the-job training with key industry leaders.
- Monthly company-sponsored events.
- Wellness programs to promote physical and mental health for our employees.
- Opportunities to contribute to charities and volunteer work.
- A Cheers for Peers reward program that allows us to recognize our colleagues for their work.
