West Orange, NJ, March 24, 2016-- Becker's Healthcare has named Barnabas Health to its 2016 list of "150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare." This list is a compilation of hospitals, health systems, ambulatory surgical centers, physician groups, vendors and other healthcare organizations that provide excellent work environments and outstanding benefits to their employees.

“Barnabas Health is honored to be listed for the third consecutive year among the ‘150 Great Places to Work in Healthcare,” said Barry H.
