CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 11, 2022 – Atrium Health has been recognized on the Forbes list of Best Employers for Veterans 2022 at No. 53. This is the second consecutive year Atrium Health has been named to this distinguished list of 200 companies, which this year also included NASA, Google and Ford Motor Company.

To determine the Best Employers for Veterans list, around 7,000 U.S. veterans working for companies employing at least 1,000 people within the U.S. were surveyed. Participants were asked to give their opinions on a series of statements related to general topics regarding their own employer, for example: atmosphere and development, image, working conditions, salary and wages, workplace and diversity, as well as a set of topics related specifically to the interests of veterans in the workplace.

“Atrium Health is honored to again be named among the best employers in the nation for veterans,” said Jim Dunn, executive vice president and chief people and culture officer for Atrium Health. “Our veteran and military teammates make extraordinary impacts to Atrium Health every day, and we greatly value the innovative leadership and professional expertise they provide to our patients, their families and the communities we serve.”

Atrium Health has taken a leading role in recruiting and retaining military veterans, which total more than 1,500 teammates throughout the health provider across four states. Atrium Health also supports the Veteran & Military System Resource Group, a group of veteran and active-duty military teammates and their families, to support military-affiliated teammates and promote the unique characteristics of those who are serving, have served or have a loved one who has served.

Atrium Health is also proud to have participated in the 2022 Charlotte Veterans Day parade last week and, later today, will host a virtual ceremony for all teammates to honor Atrium Health Veterans who have bravely served our country.
