CHA Named One of America’s Greatest Workplaces for Diversity for 2024 by Newsweek

This award recognizes Cambridge Health Alliance’s impact and commitment to diverse and equitable care for its patients and communities

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA), a community health system serving Cambridge, Somerville, and Boston's metro-north communities, was recently named one of America's Greatest Workplaces for Diversity for 2024 by Newsweek. CHA received a 5-star rating, the highest available recognition.

"Being named to this list is a tremendous honor and reflects the work of our providers and staff and our culture of diversity, equity and inclusivity," said Assaad Sayah, MD, CEO of Cambridge Health Alliance. "Diversity is truly one of our greatest values as we continue our journey of health equity and provide excellent care to everyone, every time.”

The Newsweek rating was based in part on employee feedback which highlighted that CHA genuinely respects, values and champions the diversity of its workforce. The methodology and analysis, completed by research firm Plant-A Insights, also included interviews with HR professionals, analysis of employer demographic data, monitoring of companies’ media coverage, and an independent survey of more than 220,000 U.S.-based workers yielding 1.5 million company reviews.

As a nationally-recognized healthcare system, and a Harvard Teaching Hospital, CHA has received numerous honors, including being recognized for diversity, inclusivity and workforce excellence. The organization recently received the top score as a "LGBTQ+ Healthcare Equality Leader" on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation Healthcare Equality Index (HEI). Other recent recognition includes:

  • Named the #1 Hospital in Massachusetts for Community Benefit in the 2023 Lown Institute Hospitals Index
  • Named one of Forbes Best-in-State Employers 2023
  • Named one of the Best Maternity Hospitals by Newsweek for 2023
