NCCPA recognized as one of the Best Places to Work in Healthcare in 2023

Chicago – The National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants (NCCPA) has been selected by Modern Healthcare as one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in Healthcare.

“An uncertain economy, staffing shortages and increasing demands for flexibility and remote work opportunities are forcing every business in the industry to focus on attracting and retaining talent in unprecedented ways,” said Dan Peres, president of Modern Healthcare. “The 2023 Best Places to Work winners proved the value of understanding what employees want — and need — today. The healthcare industry is going through a period of extraordinary change. Having the right people in place is more critical than ever, and the winning workplaces understand that taking care of employees is central to business success.”

“Winning this award is a great honor and a testament to the shared mission and vision of the people who work at NCCPA. We have built a culture where every voice and idea is respected and valued,” said President and CEO Dawn Morton-Rias, Ed. D., PA-C, ICE-CCP, FACHE. “This award is a recognition of the passion and dedication of the NCCPA team and just like the PA profession, our commitment to flexibility, responsiveness, and professionalism.”

This award program identifies and recognizes outstanding employers in the healthcare industry nationwide. Modern Healthcare partners with Workforce Research Group on the assessment process, which includes an extensive employee survey.
