"Our leadership team is in awe of the remarkable work from all our teammates, and we are grateful for their unwavering commitment to our mission.

Emerus, a fast-growing company and the partner of choice for leading health systems across the nation, launched its successful partnership with the Baptist Health System in 2011.

Emerus established a joint venture partnership with the Allegheny Health Network, a Highmark Health Company, in 2017. AHN was among the first health systems east of the Mississippi to incorporate the unique Emerus neighborhood hospital concept into its care delivery model. The partnership now operates neighborhood hospitals in Brentwood, Hempfield, Harmar and McCandless.

In addition to the Baptist Health System and AHN, Emerus has partnerships across the country with The Hospitals of Providence, INTEGRIS, Baylor, Scott & White, Mon Health, Dignity Health and MultiCare.

"Emerus has a strong culture focused on putting our patients first, supporting each other, and trying to make our communities a better place to live," said CEO Craig Goguen.

I am proud that the efforts of our amazing teams have again been recognized with this prestigious honor."
